Sweeeeet, now I wanna know how to make em!! LOL. I think I would find out if sending it in makes it their property instead of yours. I say if they wanna have you on the show making them, you insist that they stay your property.
Why should they turn around and profit from yours and your mothers hard work instead of you?
Congrats on making the top 10!

Fantastic! You must feel 10 feet tall!

can you post the recipe for us, or is it now securely in their possession?

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
....And that's why I think Miss Calya should maintain her rights (ownership) to the recipe

I believe she already owns the copyright to the recipe. The old send it to yourself in the mail thing is a myth, does not hold up in law. However, just the fact of publishing it with her name on it constitutes ownership.
