Did you know that October is National Cookbook Month? You know, cookbooks. The ORIGINAL Pinterest, right? I still have some special cookbooks that I use often, do you?

Keystone Meats is a fourth generation family brand offering premium quality canned protein and meal solutions who decided to celebrate National Cookbook Month with its Rewriting the Great American Cookbook Contest, shining a light on recipe hacks and making dinnertime favorites easier with Keystone Meats. Inspired by today’s busier-than-ever family, consumers will be asked to vote on recipe makeovers, or recipes that can be made easier and better with Keystone Meats. Every time a fan goes in to vote for their favorite cookbook recipe, they will be entered to win the grand prize. One grand prize winner will be awarded a year of Keystone products, including the brand’s premium canned meats, soup bases and broths! Consumers can enter online now through October 31!

On Prepping for the Competition

The Florida Strawberry Festival is held each year in Plant City, which is the Winter Strawberry Capital of the World, believe it or not, and features entertainment (like Little Big Town and Rascal Flatts), exhibits, rides, and TONS of competitions. Competitions from the Strawberry Queen pageant, all the way through agriculture, right on down to crafts and baked goods. You can visit their website HERE for more info!
