Announcing a contest (and a giveaway from me!) from MyBlogSpark and Betty Crocker

Hold the gluten, grab your apron and start your ovens! Betty Crocker is hosting its first-ever gluten-free recipe contest, the Baker´s Challenge Gluten Free Recipe Contest, and we want you to be a part of it!

I am pleased to share the word about this contest from Betty Crocker and MyBlogSpark (who provided me with a sample of the prize).  I am excited to share some of the products with one of my new gluten-free friends. But I'm also going to use them to try to create a winner in this contest.

Details?  Here you are!

We know baking in a gluten-free world poses its own challenges - as well as sweet rewards - so we want to give you a chance to show off the creative solutions and tasty treats that you´ve created for your family and friends. 

Now through June 30th, visit  for the chance to win a Grand Prize of $5,000. The grand prize winner will also have the chance to be featured on a Betty Crocker
® Gluten Free dessert mix or Bisquick®Gluten Free baking mix package and/or be featured in a Betty Crocker publication! All you have to do is submit an original gluten free holiday-themed appetizer, bread or dessert recipe, using any Betty Crocker Gluten Free dessert mix or Bisquick Gluten Free baking mix. 

Recipes will be judged on five key categories: taste, creativity, ease of preparation, consumer appeal and appearance. Plus, we want you to keep baking deliciously, so if you´re one of 10 selected finalists, you will receive a Betty Crocker Gluten Free Baking gift basket filled with baking items and Betty Crocker Gluten Free mixes. Even more exciting, finalists´ recipes will be featured on and voted on by the Gluten Freely community to determine the Grand Prize Winner! 

For great recipe tips, ideas, and suggestions, visit to help get you started and learn more about the Baker´s Challenge Gluten Free Recipe Contest. 

In addition, through the end of June, you can save 20% on the purchase of any of the five Betty Crocker Gluten Free mixes. Visit to buy yours today! 

I can't wait for the recipes to be posted, and I also can't wait to see the winners!

Are you entering? Leave me a comment below before with category *don't give away your recipe, ok?* by the June 30 deadline.  I will pick a random winner who will receive a choice gluten-free cookbook from the real "Mom" of gluten-free cooking and baking, Bette Hagman. The book is from my own personal collection!

So let's do this, people.  It's gonna be GREAT.  And you KNOW how I love a contest and a giveaway. 

Much love, and bake away!
