A New Poll and a Contest!

contest

If you look to the left you will see the tagline for Baking Delights. It says, Baking, you cant beat it!

Which may be true, but it is starting to bore me. Lacks charisma, luster, and ooo-lala, you know?

So here is the deal. I need a new tag line. And you want to win a contest. Come on, you know you do.

Look at t his cookbook. How cool is it? Dorie Greenspan bakes her way though the Parisian Pastry Shops. Imagine touring Paris with Dorie at your side. :)

See, I told you you wanted this.

So, here’s what you do.
1. Blog about this contest with a link back to Baking Delights.
2. Leave me a comment with a link to the blog post.

That gets you entered for the cookbook.
3. Come up with a tag line for Baking Delights. Something catchy, and very, very Marye. For the tagline you will get another entry in the contest.

I will choose the five taglines I like best.
On March 14th I will put up a new poll with the five best taglines. The poll will run through the 25th. On the 25th I will draw the name of the winner of the cookbook and….
The person who gets the most votes will win a $10 gift certificate to Amazon.
How cool is that?

Pretty stinkin’ cool of you ask me!

    Baking Delights: Delights Make, Delights to Munch

    Baking Delights: Where the art of baking is a showplace for(or of) love.

    I thought these definitions showed showplace was a good choice of words.

    1. an estate, mansion, or the like, usually open to the public, renowned for its beauty, excellent design and workmanship.
    2. any house, building, office, etc., that is beautifully furnished and is considered of flawless taste.

    I don’t have a blog..:( I just read yours

    Deb

  • Marye

    Thank you Claire!
    Deb- you, of all people, NEED a blog.

    Decadent and delightful, not just Marye, but baking, too.

    That was just for fun, I’ll post something real later.

  • Marye

    Oh Man, Drive bys….

    Oh no, this has so turned wrong, wrong, wrong.

    Baking Up Hot Delights

    That is my serious entry. I’ll go blog about it in a bit!

    Hi there – how about something like:

    Get a rise out of your baking.

    I’ll do a post on how baking fun foods can help take your mind off pain for helpmyhurt.com and I’ll mention your contest at the same time.

    Good luck!

    Hi Marye,
    I am a fellow Daring Baker and I am VERY new to all of this.
    Sorry I have no blog it to post to but would love that book. How do you gals do it? I have been thinking about but just not sure I have the time.
    I used to own a catering business, Appetizers and Desserts, but I started out just desserts and it’s name was Devilishly Delicious Desserts, then I dropped the Desserts when I added other foods.
    I think it Baking Delights, Devilishly Delicious would be great!
    Let me know what you think!

  • http://www.cookiedoc.blogspot.com Claire

    That should be delights TO make, not delights make! Sorry. About to do a blurb about this now.

  • Marye

    LOL! What is the deal? The porn sites keep linking to me and now you guys have me made out to be ….umm…wait…I think you have me pegged….

    A sexy, snappy name is a good link to food because it arouses the senses and bring so much pleasure to everyone. Food and sex have long been acquainted, and even the very conservative agree, food most of the times brings ( I would say arouse, but that might “ruffle” some, laughing) a lot of pleasure. So Marye, go for it ! Let your inner fun, sexy food enthusiastic chef shine!

    Cooking…good. With a little cavewoman.

    Just kidding, I hate taglines too – just letting you know that I added you to the contest post

  • Marye

    Thanks Jennifer.

  • Marye

    You are so funny, Julie!

  • Marye

    I love these taglines…you guys, keep them coming!

  • http://www.treehuggingfamily.com Jennifer

    Ok, I have an official entry. It just came to me… I can’t figure out if you’re giving away a book or a gift certificate though – I don’t want either. SO if I win, I get to pick who had the second best slogan and who gets the bootie prize. Ok. Also, I’m not sure, do we have to have BD in the tag? I’ll do one with and one not…

    Marye, taking over the world, one muffin at a time.

    Tada.

  • Marye

    What a cute contest!!! :D

  • http://diabetes.battlingforhealth.com/2008/02/diabetes-cookbook-giveaway/ Julie F

    Now I am torn between Jennifers’ and erikais’. They’re both really good! Which way to vote?

  • http://www.treehuggingfamily.com Jennifer

    Well, Julie, “You can’t go wrong voting for Jennifer” that’s another tagline I like :)

  • http://erikai-eats.blogspot.com/ erikai

    Naughty Nibbles by Tintillating Tarts!

    Nah really… We have to keep this a *tiny* bit PG… It is kinda syndicated, ya?

    But it’s fun to come up the ideas anyhoo :)

    I kinda like the Devilishly Delicious one. As far as Jennifer’s idea, you could go on a Pinky and the Brain expansion and be

    “Taking over the oven, one muffin at a time.”

    This is really fun.

    Thanks Marye!

    or a variation on erikais’…

  • Marye

    Suzana- thank you!
    ioyces-thanks that was awesome!
    Erikai- I am SO not politically correct…fire away!
    Jennifer..I think Vote for jennifer would be a weird tagline on a baking blog…
    Julie..you are hysterical…
    Keep them coming guys.

  • Michele

    Don’t have a blog. Don’t even know what a blog is, but have an idea for a title.
    How about “Delightful, Delicious, Delicacies”
    short, simple, to the point.

  • Marye

    Hi Michele! Good to see you. :)

  • http://www.leftoverqueen.com JennDZ_The LeftoverQueen

    You already have some really good ones – but you need something with a bit of heat – like your beloved chipotles…how about:

    Hmm, new tag. Here you go:

    It’s much better from your oven.

    I think this helps reinforce making your stuff at home versus buying all the things with packaging at the store.
