A Yummy Delicious Contest


I love chocolate. Who doesn't?

Well, I can think of one person - my hubby. Yep, he's a strange, little man. Although there is an up side to his dislike of the food of the godesses. Anytime he gets chocolate from work, church, or anywhere else, he brings it right home to me. Yummy, yum, yum.

In honor of this sacred treat, I am holding a contest. Oh yes, two of my favorite things - chocolate and contests. How can it get any better than that? Well, it does . . . so keep reading!

To enter the contest, simply send me your favorite chocolate story or picture (or a combination of the two!). Only one entry per person please. The story must be true, but doesn't have to be about you. It could be about your kids, a friend, your dog . . . you get the idea. If it's a picture, it must either be taken by you or be a picture of you. All entries should be sent to danyelle@familyclan.org and must be received no later than 12 noon (CT) on Thursday, August 14th.

The entries will then be compiled and posted on the QOTC blog by August 18th. Depending on the number of entries, I reserve the right to have my hubby narrow them down. A poll will be created for voting. The entry with the most votes will receive a copy of Delicious Conversation by Jennifer Stewart Griffith (more info below). The winner will be announced on August 25th. Enjoy and Good Luck!

Delicious Conversation by Jennifer Stewart Griffith

Susannah Hapsburg is totally ready for Plan C. Plan A was to get married at 22 and have a passel of kids. Still unmarried and 31, that option is out. Plan B was to work her way up the corporate ladder. However, the company she devoted eight years to just went bankrupt, giving her a bad taste for the corporate world. Which leaves her with Plan C.

Plan C involves chocolate.

With the support of friends, Susannah puts her future on the line to open up downtown Salt Lake City’s first all-chocolate cafĂ©, The Chocolate Bar, a place where scrumptious conversations and delectable desserts abound.

In the midst of all this, social turmoil hits Susannah when she catches the interest of the city’s most eligible bachelor just as her long-lost love returns to town—with intentions of marrying anyone but Susannah.

Can Plan C offer Susannah her just desserts?

One super-hysterical chocolate story coming your way!

But girlie, what's the deal? There's no actual CHOCOLATE as part of the prize?! How can you have a super-delicious chocolate contest and no actual chocolate?!

I expect a Reese's peanut butter cup at the very least! :-)

I thought about sending chocolate, but was afraid it would melt on the way! Hmm . . . I may have to reconsider . . .

Hmmm, a chocolate story. I'll have to think on that one. Fun contest idea!

Thanks for using my book as a prize. I'm SOOO flattered. Just so your contestants know, each chapter in it begins with a fabulous chocolate recipe--all my very favorites, from bombshell brownies to chocolate croissants. (And, yes, to answer the obvious question, I did gain about 10 pounds writing the book.) Readers beware! (just kidding)

Rebecca - Thank you! I hope you send in a fun story! I've been getting some pretty funny ones, along with some really sweet memories and traditions. Very fun.

Jennifer - I'm so glad you found the contest and stopped by to leave a comment. I really enjoyed your book & thought this was just such a fun way to share it! Have a great day!
