O Foods for Ovarian Cancer Awareness Round-up Part 2

September 29th, 2009 · Tags: Blog Event · Recipe

Thank you to everyone who participated in this year’s O Foods for Ovarian Cancer Awareness Contest! We had a good time reading and imagining how your dishes would taste. Be sure to check back on Friday when Gina De Palma will announce who the winners are and who will receive the autographed cookbooks from herself and Mario Batali! We can’t wait!

Thanks to everyone who donated money via our FirstGiving page to the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund. All the money donated goes directly to the organization – we’ve collected more than $600 in these two years and while it doesn’t sound like much, I’m sure it gratifies the organization to know that so many people are becoming aware of this silent killer and some are even contributing directly to its demise.

Check out the other half of our participants’ entries at O Foods for Ovarian Cancer Awareness Round-up Part 1 over at Bleeding Espresso with Michelle!

Now onto the entries – there are plenty of recipes here to keep you busy this weekend!
