Winners of the Food Memoir and Recipe Contest Announced

memoir contest winnersCongratulations to the following winners of our Food Memoir and Recipe contest. Kendra and I found it a delightful, but time-consuming activity to get through all the contest entries and to make decisions.

To those of you who did not win, please consider entering a future contest.

Let me take this opportunity to invite all our readers to our new ongoing contest. Be sure to visit our Contest page to read about it — writing the story of a Rosie the Riveter — a woman, hopefully in your family, who worked during World War II. We’d like to collect these stories and share them.
