Just A Pinch Decadent Desserts Winner--Me!

About a week and a half ago, I got to be queen for a day.

I recently won the grand prize in the Decadent Desserts recipe contest at Just A Pinch with a recipe that is very special to me.  (Clink here to read why it is so special.) The Just A Pinch crew whisked me and my husband off to the city of Franklin, Tennessee, which is where their headquarters are.  (What a gorgeous town, by the way!  We plan to move up there soon.  Not really, but it is tempting.)  While I was there I got to make my dessert in front of a live audience at the Viking Cooking school, have a thousand dollar shopping spree at the Viking store (SHUT-UP!), and then tickets to the Grand Ole Opry. 


I sooooo did not want to leave.

The best part was that I got to meet some really nice people.  

And eat really good food. That was another best part.

I can't thank the Just A Pinch crew enough for their warm hospitality.  Please go right now and check out their totally wonderful website FULL of amazing recipes.  Do it.

(PS.  I am going back to Tennessee at the end of the month to compete in the National Cornbread Festival Cook-Off.  If you are in that area, come to the festival and watch me sweat.)

Here are the highlights of my trip:
