“The Real Woman of Philadelphia” Cream Cheese Contest

Beginning in March of 2010, Kraft sponsored an 8-week online contest called “The Real Women of Philadelphia”, hosted by celebrity chef Paula Deen, where women were asked to make original cooking videos that featured Philadelphia Cream Cheese. My mother, a long time Paula Deen fan, asked that I enter the contest. I submitted one video for each week’s cooking category.

My goal was to get Paula Deen to autograph my mother’s cookbooks…I did a lot to get those cookbooks signed.
