CLOSED: Announcing a Gluten Free Recipe Contest and a GIVEAWAY!

Have you heard about the Betty Crocker Baker's Challenge?  It's a gluten free recipe contest!  Here's some info on it, provided by MyBlogSpark:
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 www.glutenfreely.com/bakerschallenge 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 www.glutenfreely.com/bakerschallenge and voted on by the Gluten Freely community to determine the Grand Prize Winner!

For great recipe tips, ideas, and suggestions, visit www.glutenfreely.com 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 http://www.glutenfreely.com/ourstore to buy yours today!
Sounds fun, huh?  I need to get experimenting because I'd love to win that prize!  The folks at Betty Crocker, through MyBlogSpark, kindly provided me with a box of each of their gluten free mixes to help get me started.  And guess what?  You have the chance to receive the same package!  If you win everything you see in the picture below will be delivered to your door to help inspire you in the Baker's Challenge.


You can have up to 2 entries:
  1. Leave a comment about the Baker's Challenge (i.e. which mix you think you'd use in the contest, whether or not you'll enter, what recipe from the Gluten Freely website you'd like to try, etc.)
  2. Share the info that throughout the month of June you can save 20% on any of the 5 Betty Crocker Gluten Free mixes at the Gluten Freely Store.  You can do this through a blog post, tweet, facebook, email, whatever.  Just come back here and leave a second comment letting me know you shared that info.
That's it.  The contest will end just over a week from today on Thursday, June 16 at midnight.  Good luck! 


Edited to add:  YOU DO NOT HAVE TO ACTUALLY DO THE RECIPE CONTEST TO ENTER!

I am definitely going to play with some recipes for the contest. I haven't limited myself to a mix yet... I have too many ideas. I didn't realize that the Betty Crocker website already had GF recipes so I'll need to try some of those too. I have also shared the info via Facebook with some GF friends who are exceptionally amazing bakers.
