I mean in a way that I could have never predicted. EVER!
It was the moment where I took a chance.
Where I was a finalist in a "cream cheese" contest.
The moment where I admitted in front of tens of thousands of people that I didn't like cream cheese until I was in my early 20's.
When I won that "cream cheese" contest and became the Dessert Host for an entire year.
Life changing for sure.
Well, my sweet reign is over, but I am still cheering on with Philly in each hand! I've introduced you to all the fun products that Kraft Philadelphia Cream Cheese has created. They have surpassed the regular cream cheese that back in the day was just spread on bagels. How much better can it get when it now comes in shredded cheeses and in a variety of chocolate "indulgences"?
Here we are in Season Three of Real Women of Philadelphia and they are doing things on a much larger scale! MAJOR giveaways! RWOP officially opened their "Delicious Dream Trips" giveaway on Monday. We're talking France, Italy AND Greece!
This week is France and my dear friend KC helped kick it off! (She was the Season One Dessert Host!) She has a gorgeous video that was posted today here. If that doesn't get you motivated to enter, I don't know what will! I told you these trips were major!
Now to the most important part...how to enter! First, sign up as a community member at Real Women of Philadelphia. If you're not a member already, you really should be. I've made some wonderful friendships there and not to mention all of the great recipes you can find!
Then you need to submit an original recipe (including any of PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese products, of course) AND a video inspired by one of the countries (France, Italy or Greece), for a chance to win a dream getaway to one of those countries. So, since this week is France you will submit a recipe and video for France. A winner will be chosen and they will embark on a delicious dream trip where they'll experience local cuisine and culture and enjoy scenic tours, and wonderful dining at gourmet restaurants. Check out the official rules here.
I personally know some of the behind-the-scenes people who are making this happen for the women of RWOP. They truly want to help make your dreams come true. They helped my dreams come true last year. With a new season here they are ready to surprise you with not only these Delicious Dream Trips, but prizes worth more than $100,000, including a kitchen makeover giveaway later this year. RWOP is more than a contest site, but a true community with a platform for creativity that offers women a place to share their real recipes, real conversations and real dreams!
I have been selected by Kraft Foods to be an ambassador for the Real Women of Philadelphia. While I have been compensated for my time, my opinions are my own, and I have not been paid to post positive comments.
While RWOP is doing a giveaway, I would love to do a giveaway of my own. Leave a comment here (with your email address) and tell me if you've ever been to France, Italy or Greece. If you haven't been at all, which would you love to visit most! I would absolutely love to go to all three, but my first choice would be Greece! I will choose one winner and they will receive "Cooking with Pheeling" cookbook and gratuity coupons from Kraft! The giveaway will close Saturday, June 15th and a winner will be announced on my site Monday, June 18th!
Good luck everyone and I will be back with reminders for the upcoming contests!
