Giveaway: Dole California Cook-Off

If you like to enter recipe contests, Dole has a great one going on! (They always have the best contests, don't they? I feel like I get to tell you about a new one every couple of months! Love that!) This one is pretty easy too!


Head over to www.DoleCookOff.com with your recipe for an entrée that uses at least one can of Dole Fruit or Juice (Dole Pineapple, Mandarin Oranges, Tropical Fruit, Pineapple Juice or Pineapple Mango Juice) as well as no more than seven additional ingredients.

Judging of the recipe will be based on Best use of Dole's product, creativity, and of course, flavor and taste.

And the prize! There will be FIVE finalists! Those lucky peeps will win a trip for themselves and a guest to Los Angeles where they will participate in the California Cook-Off event with celebrity chef Ben Ford. The prize includes airfare, three nights’ accommodations, a rental car and spending money! (I love it when trip wins include spending money - yay Dole!)

Plus, when you register at www.DoleCookOff.com, you'll also be able to play the California Cook-Off Instant Win Game, where there will be 100 great prizes from Cooking.com! (So if you're like me, and you know your recipes have no chance of winning, you still have a chance to win a great prize! LOL) And for every person you forward the giveaway to after entering, you'll get another chance to win too!


Win it One lucky reader will win a couple of coupons for free Dole products to try out making a prize worthy recipe that they might want to enter! (or just to add to their food storage. No worries if you know recipe contests aren't your thing) To enter, tell me what recipes you use Dole products in. Me? I love using Dole's pineapple on pizza, and in my Slow Cooker Sweet BBQ Chicken recipe.

As always, if you have completed the first entry above, you can also receive extra entries for:

-Subscribing to my feed OR following my blog
-Blogging about this giveaway with a link back
-Tweeting about this giveaway (leave the link or include @psychotichouse)

That's up to four (4) possible entries! Giveaway ends March 27th, 2010 at 11:59 PST. US Only, sorry. :( Please leave your email address in your comment, or have it available in your profile so I can contact you if you've won. Winners drawn via Random.org.

I received a product coupon from the sponsor, and one reader will win coupons as well.
