Oh, Wow, Cayla! That's amazing! Can you imagine how many entries she must have had?

Don't say you're too shy to do this. These people are professionals, and they know how to make you feel at ease, and will probably do most of the talking for you.

You can upload a photo just click on the "manage attachments" at the bottom of the post window.

Congrats on the win..

Calya, I have looked at your blog and it is wonderful. The cookies are exquisite! Congratulations - and yes, send the recipe. I can just see Martha getting very excited about making these beautiful cookies.

Miss Calya...I'm wondering... if before you send it in...it would be wise to mail a copy of the recipe in your handwriting to yourself! This would prove that the recipe (Your recipe) was in your possession (belonged to you) on the date of the post mark...It may come in handy sometime...may not. Just a thought!

I thought she already entered it. Hers was one of the 10 that she chose to announce on her show. And it won't matter about sending it in - once she wins (even top 10) it is the property of Martha Stewart now. I did that with a recipe on Epicurious - got in the top 10 and now I no longer "own" that recipe, which is why I will probably never enter another recipe contest while my husband is making me write a cookbook

They only wanted a picture, no recipe. Here is the picture. Thanks Jeff for telling me how to add a picture.

Everyone's comments are so sweet and helpful! I love DC.
