Monday Moments - Surprised!

I came home from running errands the other day and found this email in my "in-box". I was a little shocked and very honored. It should be really deciding what recipe to submit!

Hi Mindi,
This is Briana over at Utah Valley Magazine. I hope you're doing well!

This may come as a surprise to you, but .... congratulations! You've been selected as a winner of Utah Valley Magazine's Dessert Cook-Off Contest.

Now, I know you didn't officially enter our contest, but we came across your food blog and fell in love with it! You have such fun recipes (and fun ways of showcasing them) that we knew we needed to include you among our tasty talents.

So here's the deal — each winner will be featured in the November/December issue of Utah Valley Magazine with their original dessert recipe. Would you mind picking one of your original desserts for us to showcase? Just to avoid a repeat, the other winning desserts are: Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls, Holiday Fruit Cake and Hot Chocolate Fudge Cakes.

Participation includes the following:

1. A photo shoot at the Thanksgiving Point Emporium on Wednesday, Oct. 7 from 2 p.m. to 3 p.m.
a) You'll need to bring your dessert, as we'd like to photograph you with the winning delight.
b) Please let us know if you have a platter/dish to present your dessert on, or if you would like us to help with that. We are happy to help if you need it — just let us know!
c) If you can't make it on the 7th, let me know and we'll figure something out.

2. Answer the questions below by Sept. 30. Don't worry, it won't feel like homework — they should be fun to answer! :)

Thank you for your time and cooperation, and please let me know if you have any questions.

I'm excited to work with you!
