Cookbook Party Recap

In total, we had 46 guest entries for the Blogoversary/Cookbook Party. Not to shabby if you ask me. You "guys" sure did GREAT!!! Out of the 20 monthly celebrations to choose from, you managed to create dishes for 15 of them. That's more than half!!!

Before we get to the run down, I would like to point you in the direction of a website that guides you through getting rid of the screen that some of you may find unfavorable when clicking on an image. (mine sort of looks like a slide-show:) It's called, How to Disable the Blogger Light Box. If I had know that black screen was called light box, it sure would have been easier to find help! On to the goodies!!!

Although there were a whopping forty-six Cookbook Party entries, many of you entered more than once. As you can see from the Random Generator above, lucky "gal" Pam from "Live Everyday Like a Holiday" won twice! However, you may have also noticed that there are 5 books listed as prizes for those of you living in the USA. So, what I did, was give the remaining entries who didn't already win a prize a second chance at the Random Generator. I assigned the following people the numbers 1-9 and chose another winner!
Second Chance USA:
#1-Ruth
#2-Mae
#3-Chan
#4-Marjie
#5-Linda
#6-Inger
#7-Trisha
#8-Erica
#9-Lidian-Winner!
Since there was no winner from a "far away" place, I decided those guests too should be awarded a second chance. So, they too each got a new number for this second chance drawing at the Random Generator.
Second Chance "Far-Away"
#1-Gloria
#2-Petra
#3-Joyce
#4-Alicia
#5-Annie
#6-Helene
#7-Lena-Winner!
After choosing those winners, there were still a few mini cookbooks that needed a home. So, back to the Random Generator with a list of new numbers for the remaining guests who might enjoy a token of the Cookbook Party Celebration. This time I reversed everyone's number:)

Thank you all for joining my blogoversary celebration. It sure has been quite an enjoyable experience that probably needed a bit more organization on my part. However, you "guys" did fabulous! Not only did you grace us with eye catching entries, you supported each other's questions and posts. Those of you who are on Twitter, tweeted the Cookbook Party for those who aren't even on Twitter, which I found to be quite touching. Such encouragement! Thank you again, everyone. Louise

I started to collect a few Halloween links but I'm afraid I didn't get to far. If you would like to include your Halloween link in the comment section or in the add a link section, be my guest! Here are some fun Sugar & Spice Cookies to start you off.

For those of you who have won, please send me an email with your mailing address so I can get your new cookbooks to you ASAP!

the Winners!
