And the winner is....



Do you love the Oscars?? Or..... not so much.
I do actually have a day job, otherwise you'd be overloaded with a zillion updates over here and I'd probably not be running all over creation on adventures all the time. Gotta earn the moo-lah for all those adventures somehow...
For the past seven years (dang, that's crazy!) I have been working in fine jewelry, every day, surrounded by beautiful, amazing jewels. It's pretty cool, and the ultra gorgeous line I work for now is very well versed in reg carpet glam, so the Oscars (and all the major awards shows) are a big deal and loads of big work in our neck of the woods.
When it comes time for the big ones like Golden Globes or the ultimate- the Oscars, we host a suite in our studio for stylists and celebrities to come view the jewelry in a relaxing, gorgeous environment- great drinks, food and music while you pick out their bling for presenting or receiving.



Sweet Life Kitchen will be catering the ERICA COURNTEY Oscar Suite this year and in honor of the red carpet extravaganza, we'll be GIVING AWAY A COOKBOOK!!
WOOHOO!!



The CFDA AMERICAN FASHION COOKBOOK to be exact! HOW TRES CHIC IS THAT?!
This is a collaboration of all kinds of great American fashion (AND JEWELRY) designers!!
My boss, THE Erica Courtney, has a recipe featured in the book that makes buying it totally worth it (and winning it a REAL treat!!)
Erica's recipe is the (BEST) Red Velvet top-secret-until-now-straight-from-real-deal-Louisiana Cake recipe!!

So here's how it works, easy- just post a comment here that somehow relates to food you would serve at an Oscar party, your favorite Oscar moment, or why you'd love to have a copy of this glamorous cookbook!!
Since the 82nd Academy Awards are only a week away on March 7th, 2010 this contest will conclude ONE WEEK AFTER the awards on SUNDAY MARCH 14th at 8pm (PST)...so you have until then to post a comment here!!
Good Luck!

How fun. I love the oscars and I think my favorite thing to watch for is funny speeches and of course the fashion.

Oh! I love this! For an Oscar Party I would want to serve something fancy... maybe a special champagne cocktail with a little nibbler to go along with it, among other things, of course :)

The Oscars are glamourous and glitzy. The actors and actresses are beautiful and amazing. The women are dripping with jewels. I would serve an equally glamourous food like Gold Dusted Truffles.

I would like this book because I am curious to see the foods designers like... I imagine them to be as creative as their designs, which is my fav part of the oscars.

Well first of all, who wouldnt want to win this book? It's gorgeous! And second and Im not just saying this...red velvet anything is my WEAKNESS, so out of necessity...MUST OWN COOKBOOK WITH SECRET LOUISIANA RED VELVET CAKE RECIPE!

Um, serving food at an Oscars party? It would have to be light, airy, and delicious! Would the olives in the Martinis count?

Kristin said...

My younger sister cooks and bakes a lot. I'd love to be able to find great recipes with her in this book!

Beth and Nathan,

I have been following your blog since I read the root beer BBQ pork and how it was given to Nathan for a hangover cure. My Stepmother tried the recipe and loved it. I was thinking you may want to try a Dr. Pepper or root beer based BBQ sauce. Anyway, best of luck in the future.
