Season 2 Real Women of Philadelphia, with Paula Deen

Do you like to cook?  Live in or near Philadelphia?  Read below for more information on how to enter this fun contest sponsored by Philadelphia Cream Cheese and Paula Deen!




Back by popular demand the online cooking competition searches for the next home cooks

to win $25,000 and be crowned cooking stars

Southern cooking queen Paula Deen and Philadelphia Cream Cheese are proud to announce Season 2 of one of the largest women’s online communities, the Real Women of Philadelphia. Building on the success of the first season, home cooks upload recipe videos showcasing their preparation of original recipes using Philadelphia Cream Cheese or the new Philadelphia Cooking Creme.


Beginning April 4th Paula Deen and Philadelphia Cream Cheese ask women across the country to create short, entertaining and creative cooking videos in each of four categories—appetizer, side dish, entree and dessert—and submit them via http://www.realwomenofphiladelphia.com.   At the end of the eight-week competition, four lucky finalists will be chosen in each of four categories by a distinguished panel of judges. These 16 finalists will have the opportunity to meet Paula Deen in person and compete in a cook-off at the 2nd Annual Real Women of Philadelphia Live Event on June 30 in Savannah, GA for the chance to be crowned the winner in their cooking category. The four winners will each receive a talent contract worth $25,000, star in their own cooking videos, contribute to a cookbook featuring the community’s favorite cream cheese recipes from the season, and host the Real Women of Philadelphia community.


“After meeting and following all of these amazing, passionate, creative women throughout the first season of Real Women of Philadelphia and seeing how this program positively impacted their lives, I knew we had to have a second season,” said Paula Deen. “I am honored to be a part of a program designed to empower women through the passion of cooking; something that is so close to my heart.”


“We were absolutely overwhelmed and thoroughly excited by the tremendous response, engagement, and authenticity of the community we saw in last year’s competition and can’t wait to embark on Season 2,” said Adam Butler, Brand Manager of Philadelphia Cream Cheese.  “With Season 2 of Real Women of Philadelphia we look to expand our incredible community and continue to channel the creativity, passion and fun these women have as they create their Philadelphia Cream Cheese recipes.”


All female cooks, from novices to experts are invited to visit http://www.realwomenofphiladelphia.com today to enter the competition and join the Real Women of Philadelphia community where over 40,000 amazing members already share their family recipes, tips and stories with other real-life cooks. Members can also purchase Real Women of Philadelphia: The Cookbook with introduction by Paula Deen through LuLu.com to see the best Philadelphia Cream Cheese recipes from the first season of the Real Women of Philadelphia.


The Real Women of Philadelphia program was developed by Digitas and EQAL in collaboration with Kraft Foods and includes video production, Web site development and community management. Social media strategy and public relations handled by 360i and Rogers & Cowan, and media handled by The KraftOne team of Digitas and Mediavest.

Happy Blankie makes me smile…

This Mama just loves loves loves Happy Blankie!  If you are looking for a special item to include in your Easter baskets this year read on!  We recently received the BEST blanket ever!  It arrived in a cute little package with a personalized note and rainbow lollipop.  Inside was the softest, cutest, bear shaped blanket.  It’s the perfect size for my little one.  It’s cuddly and cute without the bulk of a stuffed animal and small enough to carry along without dragging on the ground.  And the best part about the company is that for every blanket you buy they will donate a blanket to someone in need.  Happy Blankie makes me smile.  Just writing this post has made me all warm and fuzzy, which is a wonderful thing on this damp and chilly day.  Why not check them out for yourself? www.happyblankie.com

Arbonne Contest Starts Now!

Congrats to Desirae Sutcliffe, winner of our 1st contest. You’ve won $88.50 in free products from Arbonne!

Contest starts 12/26/09 & ends when 50 people sign Mary’s guest book or Jan 4, 2010 rolls around (whichever happens first). You could win $88.50 in free products, no strings attached (you win, we ship them to you) from a local mom that sells Arbonne.

I didn’t want to offer you a prize without knowing if I could really stand behind the products. Mary Wozniak, mom & Arbonne Independent Consultant that is donating the prize, let me try the products for a couple of weeks. The products are all natural and simply amazing. Ever since I started “greening up” my life, I haven’t been able to find all natural products that did the job of my chemical products…that is until now. My face felt completely clean and moisturized at the same time. It did not feel too tight, yet it felt taut. You know what I mean…when a cleanser makes your face feel so tight and dry. I actually got to try the entire kit with the serums and some of my wrinkles (who said that…do I have wrinkles) seem to not be as deep now. I wish I would have taken an up close picture of my face before and after. I’m a believer now and as of last Wednesday, a customer of Mary’s.

So all you need to do is click on the picture below and sign the guest book on Mary’s website. After at least 50 people sign the guest book or Jan 4, 2010 rolls around (whichever happens first), we will randomly pick a winner and that person will win Arbonne’s Nutrimin C RE9 Wash & Day cream. The total retail value of both of those products is $88.50 (check the website for product information).

Click the picture below to enter the contest!

Good Luck to all of you! I’m so excited….Mama’s Little Helper’s 1st contest!!!

On a side note: Mary is offering a 15% discount to anyone who mentions Mama’s Little Helper. You must email her ([email protected]) personally, because she doesn’t have the ability to use coupon codes on her site yet. Enjoy!
