I am super excited to be teaming up with Lucky Leaf Premium Pie Fillings to host this

Lucky Leaf Recipe Contest!


See the bottom of the post for official entry rules and guidelines, but in a nutshell:

We want to see YOUR best recipes using Lucky Leaf brand ingredients!


A panel of fabulous blogger judges I had the opportunity to chat with at BlogHer Food (plus a Lucky Leaf representative and myself!) will be judging the recipes and voting for their favorite Lucky Leaf recipe!


How to enter:


ONE) Create a recipe following the recipe development guidelines listed below. For bloggers: recipes may be old or new posts.


TWO) Post the recipe to your blog if you are a blogger -or- post your recipe on My Recipe Magic* if you are not a blogger (either way, your recipe must have a photo).


THREE) Bookmark or pin this post so that you can return and enter your recipes using the blue InLinkz button at the bottom of this post. You must enter your recipe(s) by 11:59pm EST on August 25, 2013. Or, click on this blue button in my sidebar to find this entry page again:
enter the contest

Judging will occur on August 26 and a winner will be selected.

Come back on August 27 to find out if you won!


Lucky Leaf’s Suggested Recipe Guidelines:

  • Recipes should feature a Lucky Leaf brand ingredient (in other words, try to make the ingredient integral to the recipe, not something easily omitted).
  • Please try to include the product in your photos (example here).
  • Create a recipe suitable for any time of year.
  • Try to use standard baking measurements and equipment.
  • Give simple, easy-to-follow instructions in the recipe.
  • Include serving suggestion (in the notes if using My Recipe Magic*).
  • Try to keep prep and cook time less than 60 minutes total.

We would love for you to share with us your shopping, baking/creating, and photographing process with us on your social media pages! Simply use the hashtag #luckybakes whenever you share on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter!**



*If you will not be sharing your recipe on a blog post, you may still enter the contest by sharing your recipe on My Recipe Magic, a recipe sharing site anyone (not just food bloggers) can use! Simply register to quickly set up an account and follow the instructions to submit a recipe. Once your recipe has been published on My Recipe Magic (they’ll email you to let you know), copy the link (URL) to your recipe and past it into the InLinkz form (the blue button) at the bottom of this post. When using the Inlinkz form, be sure to enter the name of the recipe when it asks for “Name.”

**You must post about this contest on one of your social media profiles and use the hashtag #luckybakes at least one time to qualify to win.

    Thank you for hosting such a fun recipe contest.

  11. I REALLY want to enter this contest! I have the recipe, the time to bake tomorrow, and the slot in my blog schedule set aside. But when I went to get my ingredients, I can’t find Lucky Leaf brand anywhere!!! What chain sells these? Are they available on the west coast? Is there any way to enter my recipe and just change it say “use Lucky Leaf” filling? So sad right now! :(

  12. Great contest Ashton! Just linked up a few of mine (it didn’t say how many are acceptable). Feel free to delete if only one is allowed!

I hope those judges plan on making all these treats-you know, just to fair in judging and all ;) Thanks for such a fun giveaway. I like something like this more than random chance. It was fun deciding what to make, and I plan on visiting all these links and pinning this delicious collection!
