I frequently get e-mails about different cooking contests, so I thought I’d pass them along!


I got this information about a contest with Philadelphia cream cheese the other day. The funny thing is, I deleted the e-mail without reading it, because I thought “Philadelphia, why would I want to write about Philadelphia, I’d rather write about something local.” In any case, I do enjoy adding cream cheese to a number of recipes, I’m sure my readers do too!

Philadelphia Cream Cheese and Food Network star Paula Deen have teamed up to host the Real Women of Philadelphia community and casting competition on  Home cooks across the country are invited to share how they bring everyday dishes to life with Philly for a chance to win $25,000 and be named one of the Real Women of Philadelphia
