And the winner is…
Congratulations to Lidia Haddadian! She takes the cake — and scored $11,000 — for the recipe she submitted in the Eggland’s Best “Your Best Recipe” contest.
Haladdian’s culinary creation, Southwestern Chorizo Tostada Bites, helped her clinch $10,000 as the overall winner, plus $1,000 as best recipe in the appetizer category. The competition was not just fierce, it was delicious.

Everyone knows Eggland’s Best does eggs better than anyone else, but the NJ-based company also does some pretty awesome contests. This is the second time they’ve done the “Your Best Recipe” contest, which was flooded with more than 3,000 entries from all over the country.
Last year, I was the winner in EB’s first “CEO” contest and proudly bear the title of “Chief Egg Officer.” When my “reign” ends (as my husband calls it), I have to admit, I’ll have a tough time giving it up.
For Lidia and the others, the excitement is just beginning. Congratulations to all the winners. You earned it!
I’m still waiting for an update on Ann Marie and her lemons…
She has passed the lemons phase, but is doing awesome in life. Not sure where you live, but if you are in North Alabama, she is selling BMWs for Century Auto. Her gift is sales and Ann Marie is using it to the fullest, while helping various local and international nonprofit organizations. Thanks for checking!
