Well, the results are in and we have our winners of the Ritter Sport and Sweet Freedom goodie pack contest! 


Here’s how I selected them: First, I went to and asked for 6 random numbers between 1 and 120.  Then I went through the numbers in the order they appeared in the random list.  The first entry from Toronto won the baked goods; after that, everyone else (whether from Toronto or not) won a Peppermint Ritter Sport. 


I’ve copied and pasted the list here.  I’m afraid I don’t know how to capture the screen exactly as it looks on the Random. org page (can anyone help me with that?), but I promise that this is the actual list that appeared when I hit the “Get Numbers” button.  And if anyone can tell me how to copy the content from the original page onto my blog (for the next contest), I’d be much obliged!

(“Yes, we can vouch four our Mum  because we were in the room while she was on the computer. . . well, okay, maybe we were actually wrestling on the floor at the time, but we trust our Mum.  She always gives us treats when she says she will.”)

Congratulations to all the winners!  I’ll be contacting you via email.  And if you happen to read this before you hear from me, please email me at dietdessertdogs AT gmail DOT com to get in touch!

This was really a fun contest for me.  I loved reading all the entries, and your enthusiasm was contagious! Thanks, everyone, for entering. 

And as I mentioned before, there will be one contest each month until the cookbook is published, so you can always enter again later for another chance to win!

Have a great weekend (and to my American friends, enjoy the Superbowl–but honestly, does anyone really enjoy the Superbowl??).

Ricki 🙂

    To take a screen capture on a mac simply hit apple-shift-4 and then a little cross will appear, with that cross you can highlight whatever you want to capture. I think on a pc you hit Print Screen (PrtScn) then open paint and go edit-paste and it should appear.
    Just found this blog yesterday and I am hooked-thanks!!

    Haha I know. I shouldn’t complain. My mom was carded well into her 40s, though, so I think I’m in for a long ride 🙂

    Those polenta squares below look flippin’ fantastic!

  15. Congratulations to everyone!! You lucky, lucky people!

    This was so weird! Exactly when I was reading “Peppermint Ritter Sport”, I leaned over my desk and smelled peppermint. Of course, the Twilight-Zone moment ended when I realized I was smelling a “Celestial Seasonings” coupon that came in my new peppermint tea box. It was fun and freaky while it lasted! 🙂

    In answer to your question, i could absolutely care less about the superbowl and i’m lucky my husband feels the same way!
