Cindy Orley is in Everyday with Rachel Ray December Issue

What is a blog for but to share personal news and excitement!? I’ve gotta share some exciting news. My picture is in the December/January issue of Everyday with Rachel Ray. It is the Pillsbury’s ad for their MyCrescentWow contest, but still, my recipe and picture is on page 21 and I’m so excited! 🙂  I’m also thrilled and in disbelief that I am still in 1st place for votes! Thank you everyone for voting for me, I can’t begin to tell you how much I appreciate all of your support and votes. THANK YOU!

What will I do if I win?

I have had people ask what the prize for me would be and what I would do with it.  The prize for me is $5,000 if I win. What would I do with the prize money? I hope to win the $5,000 prize to put it toward the new kitchen remodel.

We moved into a 50 year old home with a 1/2 functioning kitchen with plans to remodel. We started with the kids bedrooms and my hope is to move downstairs to the kitchen next. My 50 year old kitchen is on it’s last wobbling leg. The appliances are about gone (the broken dishwasher isn’t even IN the kitchen), there are not enough cabinets for most of my dishes, cooking ware (1/2 are still packed), or food, and counter space is super limited. I have to use cutting boards on the sink for extra space.

Plus, the cabinet doors never close and I often hit my forehead on the one above the microwave. Without notice, it opens and if I don’t watch, which apparently I don’t, I slam my forehead on it. Seriously, I almost wrote a past last week entitled “Am I a huge Loser if I have the letter “L” imprinted in my forehead from a cabinet door?” because I did. lol

So, I don’t mean to whine but that is where the prize money would go. I must say that I have an incredible husband who is a good provider for our family. He will remodel my kitchen regardless, however if I win the Pillsbury contest, that kitchen will get started much sooner.  🙂

Thanks again everyone for voting for me and my 2 recipes: Perfect Potato Pockets and Chocolate Cheesecake Bars!
