My Entry Won and was on Martha!

Just excited so I thought I would share. Recently, I entered Lotus Blossom Cookies in Martha's favorite cookie contest and I was one of the 10 that she chose. She announced the winners on her show today!

No phone call, just an email. It is my mom's recipe. It's a fried cookie actually. =) Martha said that she would like to know how to make them, but I wonder if she's just saying it. I am thinking of whether or not to send in the recipe. I have a pic of the cookies on my blog, but how do you post the pic on here? It says to enter a URL, but it doesn't work.

I'd send it in, Cayla - sometimes she's had a winner come on the show and either sit in the front row or demonstrate. How fun!
What wonderful news!

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..

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.
