November 01, 2013, 1:17 pm -- /EPR NETWORK/ -- Gourmandize is keeping its momentum by announcing the third recipe contest since the site's early summer launch. Now in search of quick and easy weeknight dinners, this contest invites chefs of all levels to participate. An unlimited number of recipes are accepted per member and must be received by Nov. 14, 2013. Recipes submitted with photos will count as two entries and will be placed in a prize drawing to win a crockpot or gourmet smoked spice gift set from partner, Bourbon Barrel Foods. The more recipes submitted the greater the chances of winning. Food bloggers will be able to compete against other bloggers for a special prize, a Williams Sonoma gift card. The blogger recipes will be evaluated separately on originality and photo quality by the Gourmandize team.
Stephanie McIntosh, Editorial Manager of Gourmandize's sister site, came up with the idea for the US contest theme, “It's not always easy getting dinner on the table during the week. No matter how many mouths you need to feed, finding the time, energy and inspiration to make a tasty, nutritious meal is hard work. By choosing the contest theme, weeknight dinners, we are searching for the best recipes home cooks reach for when time is short. And to reward those who work so hard during the week to make that family meal.” To compete in this month's contest visit Gourmandize.com and submit all entries before Nov. 14, 2013.
