Recipe Contest

The GIG of Portland had a Thanksgiving recipe contest and we decided to go. I made some strawberry cupcakes to enter in the contest. And guess what! I won second place!

I won a twenty dollar gift card to New Seasons and a very nice cookbook Make Ahead Paleo.

Me mixing up the batter. 

Finished cupcakes. I loved frosting them and putting the strawberries on the top and making them pretty. 

At the potluck, which was so good! There was so much good food there! We brought our recipes to share. 

I'm excited to try new recipes from this book! 

And here is my winning recipe!
