Keep On Crunkin': The Winners

The 7-day Keep On Crunkin' challenge is over! I was overwhelmed by the response on social media. Your tweets, Facebook tags, Pinterest pics, and Instagrams brightened my day every day this past week! I love you all!

And for anyone who cares, we're keeping that Keep On Crunkin' Pinterest group board up forever, so feel free to post any Cookin' Crunk dishes you make there in the future. I'd love to see them!

Tonight's post will be quick. I just wanted to announce the winners from each day's giveaways. Each entry was assigned a number every day, and winners were chosen using random.org's number generator.

Day One:
We had two winners on Day One, since there was an extra credit giveaway. Holly Gruver won a cookbook on Twitter!

And April Novak (a fellow Memphian!) won the Cookin' Crunk apron giveaway on Pinterest. Here's what she posted in response to requests for "crunked" recipes. One of April's favorite Southern recipes is homemade biscuits and "sausage" gravy.

Day Two:
Jess Fenech won the Facebook giveaway for a cookbook. She tagged a friend and asked if she could go Vegan Crunk from Australia. Of course you can!!

Day Three:
Amanda Renee won the Twitter giveaway for a cookbook. She said her favorite vegan food is a toss-up between fried okra and biscuits and gravy. Me too!

Day Four:
Marti Miller Hall, better known as Tofu Mom, won the cookbook giveaway. I asked people to post pictures of my favorite Southern pantry staples on Pinterest and Instagram. Here's what Tofu Mom posted!

Day Five:
Bernadette Session won the giveaway for an apron. I asked people to post pictures of dishes they'd cooked using liquid smoke. She posted this delicious-looking New Year's Day dish — collards and tomatoes seasoned with liquid smoke with hopping jean and spoon bread. Yum!!

Day Six:
EffYeah Apryl won the Twitter apron giveaway. She tweeted that she'd like to use my Memphis-style BBQ sauce in vegan lentil sloppy joes or in vegan meatloaf.

Day Seven:
To Be Announced! Stephanie of Vegan Mainstream and I will be picking a winner this afternoon. I'll update this post when we have one.

I can't thank y'all enough for crunkin' with me! Y'all are the BESTEST!!!!
