When Life Gives you Lemons, Someone Else Gives You Lemonade

After my triumphant conquering of the Timpano this past Christmas, I resolved this new year to enter any and all recipe contests I could. I was confident, charged up, and ready to win. But alas, I already feel deflated after submitting to two contests and not being chosen as a finalist in either. The third I've entered does not announce its finalists until Jan 30th, 2009 but I am not holding my breath. Even though I am not an immediate winner (something I need to rectify with my competitive spirit), I will keep trying to compete mostly because I am determined too and because of the great support from the friends I've made through the food blogging community in 2008. Just today I've received my first ever food blogging award bestowed upon me by the SoCal Pastry Chef pictured to the left. The Lemonade Award could not have come at a better time since I am sour over the recent recipe contest results.

So Thanks, Thanks, Thanks, and more Thanks to you SoCal for reading and for now it is back to the recipe drawing board! Afterall, somebody has to win that Pillsbury $1,000,000 prize! :)

You are oh so right. Someone out there needs $1 mil, so you go for it!

Best of wishes on the third contest. Your timpano was certainly a beautiful piece of food! I had never heard of one, but it looks like quite an Italian feast.
