O Olive Oil Cooking Contest Underway - VOTE NOW!

This week is a big week fro some very talented bloggers!  The very good folks at O Olive Oil are partnering with to select a winner in a very special and even unique cooking contest.  Not only is there going to be a "winner" selected for the quality of the recipe submitted, but for the first time (that I know of), food bloggers are being judged and awarded prizes based on the quality of their food writing as well as a prize for best food styling/photography.

A part of the judging is up to you!  The true honor of any recipe is to be added to someone's recipe file as something that they may consider making themselves at a future date.  So, in order to determine a "winner", 1/3rd of the judging will be based on how many people add their recipe to their eRecipeBox maintained on

Setting up an electronic recipe box is very easy.  All you need is an email address and a password that you control.  Then, any recipe you see on home page can be stored with just a single click into your file.  And of course, from the same account you are able to submit a recipe blog post for others to enjoy.

To set up an account, follow the directions on our "Tour" page.  Step by step, easy to follow illustrated instructions will have you set up in minutes. Click HERE or the click the photo of the recipe box.

To find the recipes and the page to "Vote" for your favorite, Go to the Search page at the top of the home page (or click HERE).  Once there, type in OOLIVEOIL (all one word, all caps (easiest to cut and paste).
