These were from a Pillsbury Bake Off cookbook.....there's another contest I tried for MANY years with no success, but lots of yummy goodies along the way.
OK, you need to start entering contests that have TONS of people entering. The Pillsbury one is kind of like the lottery, you just can't get upset if you don't win.
That reminds me of a story a co-worker told me. His cousin won one of the big ones in NJ, it's a $1000 a week for life. And he said something to her about how incredible that was and she said something like "well, I've been playing it for a couple months".
