RecipeNut Contest and Giveway

Lately I've been playing around with RecipeNut, recently launched by Hormel. It's a site where you can collect recipes found from all around the web. I put links to my own blog posts there, but have also been saving recipes from all around the web that I dig up while I'm researching what to do with leftover ingredients. The site itself is a good resource for finding recipes that other users have recommended. And it has all great features of a social network site for recipe lovers. You can friend people and save other people's recipes to your own profile. (If you'd like to friend me on RecipeNut, look for the user rachelsbite.)

In celebration of the launch, RecipeNut is sponsoring a contest through Facebook where you post a favorite family recipe and the story behind it for a chance at up to $1,000 in prizes. I've already been digging around in my mom's recipe tin and found something really exiting to write about for my own entry! (I'll attempt to make the recipe and post about it soon.)

The official contest kicked off at and entries will be accepted through October 11th. Simply fan or “like” the page, submit a name and description of your favorite family recipe and the story behind it as well as an image of the note card or page that it’s printed on. Ten finalists will be selected and fans can vote for or “like” the entry they think best exemplifies a truly treasured recipe. The winners will be announced on the RecipeNut Facebook page on October 25th.

Prizes include:
(1) Grand Prize:
  • Premium Calphalon Cook Set
  • $200 in Hormel® product coupons

    (2) Runner-up Prizes:
  • Mid-tier Calphalon Cook Set
  • $100 in Hormel® product coupons

    In addition to their Facebook contest, RecipeNut has also put together a fun prize package that I will giveaway to one of my readers! All you need to do is leave a comment on this post below letting me know what you think about RecipeNut or an interesting recipe you found on there and you will be eilbigle to win the prize package which includes:

    • RecipeNut Oven Mitt
    • Hormel® chili with beans

    • Hormel® pepperoni minis
    • Hormel® real crumbled bacon bits
