Pumpkins for autumn comfort food

Pumpkins for autumn comfort food

Congratulations to Desiree who won the Starbucks $10 gift card from highdesertblogging.com! The contest ended at 6:00 p.m. PST on Saturday, September 21st. Desiree shared her favorite Pumpkin Bar recipe that a family member makes every year.  It’s a specific pumpkin bar recipe by Betty Crocker called Pumpkin-Spice Bars with Cream Cheese Frosting.

My favorite season is fall. I love the crisp air, comfort foods, holidays, and the seasons’s colors. Pumpkin falls within the comfort foods and holidays categories, and I wanted to introduce the fall season at highdesertblogging.com with a pumpkin recipe contest. It’s a joy to offer the $10 Starbucks card to our reader Desiree. Thank you, Desiree, for following our blog.

If you follow this blog, you know that there is another contest happening – a writers contest. The great thing about it is that cash prizes will be given to first and second place winners, and a Starbucks gift card will be given to the third place winner. To enter the writing contest, write a nonfiction article of 500-1000 words about autumn and submit it to hdblogging@gmail.com. The contest rules and directions can be found on our Contests and Giveaways page. There is a small fee of $10 per entry, and three entries per person are allowed. Other than the top three winners, honorable mentions will also be included. All who enter will have a good chance of winning or at least possibility of publication (see more about this on the Contests and Giveaways page listed above).

Perhaps you can’t afford to enter more than once when there is a fee for writing entries in contests. Consider entering a writing contest three or four times a year. Submit articles to writing contests, magazines, and writing websites like https://www.textbroker.com/ and https://www.constant-content.com/. (Hint: new contests that are offered on sites may not be widely known yet – good way to become a winner!)

Look for other contests on the Internet. One I like that I discovered today is the Sun Photo Contest. The prize is an Almanac suncatcher.

Keep writing. Submit your articles. Offer to write guest blog posts. Continue to enter contests. Your article or blog post could be the next one chosen. You could be the next winner.
