Recipe Contest WinnersOver the past few weeks, I, along with my taste testers, have had the arduous task of going through the plethora of amazing recipes that were submitted in the “Best of the Bite” contest.  And man were there some awesome recipes!  I continue to be humbled and overwhelmed by all of this.  First the opportunity to write a book, now the opportunity to feature some of y’all in that book… it just astonishes me.  From the time I started discussing this book with my editor, I’ve always felt it was important to include the readers in it.  Southern Bite would be nothing without y’all, so I knew you all must be a huge part of the book. I truly want this to be “our” book.

I wish there were enough pages to be able to feature every single recipe that was submitted, but it’s just not practical.  So, we’ve narrowed it down to 25 recipes.  I am so excited to be able to feature these delicious recipes.  Congrats to everyone!!  And keep track of all of the book news by clicking the “About the Book” link at the top of every page.

    What a fun surprise to find my recipe in your list! We just love this pie and I’m sure your readers will too. Thank you for the opportunity to share a delicious recipe.
    It must be my time to shine. Just last night I was one of 5 local cooks on our local PBS station (WILL-TV) chosen to prepare a dish on their live pledge drive show, “Come and Get It, Family Dinner Favorites”. For that I made a Curry Kale Potato Casserole.

  2. So exciting! Thank you so much. It is a honor and a pleasure to be included in this very exciting adventure! Congratulations to all the winners!

  6. Oh Stacey! What a great list and I am just tickled pink to be included!! So exciting! I am so, so thrilled for you and I couldn’t be happier that this is happening for you. I can’t wait to get my hands on a copy and add it to my collection. And maybe you’ll let me do a giveaway?? (hint, hint). Okay, that was less of a hint and more of a suggestion. 😉
    Hugs and Congratulations!
