Kraft Gift Basket Giveaway: Real Women of Philadelphia


I am not a professional chef in any shape way or form {the thought actually makes me chuckle}, yet I have no choice but to cook. There might be a law or two about it, but I kinda have to feed myself and the kids.

So, I try and embrace the task by being somewhat creative while keeping favourites in mind. I’m not an apron wearing, kitchen ninja as yet, but I like the act of trying and sometimes with great success.

Like many others out there, I get my inspiration and ideas from websites, magazines and books. Yet my absolute favourite site for all things cooking and baking is Real Women of Philadelphia.

Disclaimer: yes, I am a RWoP Brand Ambassador, yet there are some key points about this place on the net that I find most appealing {kinda like chocolate}. I know with all certainty I’ll be a frequent reader, commenter and member of the site long after my ambassador duties are done.

The reason is very simple, yet strikingly awesome.

It’s a community.

Yes, there’s professional recipes and photos much like any other food brand website, yet it’s not entirely one sided. Not at all. You can find conversations and recipes from everyday cooks, parents, food-lovers. People like myself that are in no way professional, yet have to cook and want to fine tune their ninja skills.

It’s sharing, support and the truest sense of community, and a delicious one at that. Of course there’s also contests, how-to’s and all that goodness like cream filling in a cake.

Real Women of Philadelphia had launched their 2013 Cheesecake of the Year contest and many entries piled in. Each one was fantastic and in entirety gave cheesecake ideas to last lifetimes. The winner was announced and I’d like to take this time to congratulate Lisa Bernardi as the 2013 winner!!

While I could go on and on, highlighting the many great things at Real Women of Philadelphia, thing is, there’s great things there daily. Today, I’m all over the FREE downloadable cookbook filled with more than 90 recipes.

If you haven’t already, hop on over to Real Women of Philadelphia and you’ll quickly realize what a vast website it is. Perhaps you’ll discover a meal to make this weekend or perhaps you want to download your favourite dessert or kitchen tips. Maybe all of the above!

In fact, why not stop by right now and drool over the Pumpkin Cake with Cream Cheese Icing recipe. My husband coined it as ‘the best cake he’s ever had’. *blush*. Yeah, I might not be a professional, but I’m doing my best.

While there, get ideas for your Thanksgiving dinner!
