Macy’s Keep It Cooking Sweepstakes

One of my favorite FoodNetwork hosts, Tyler Florence, (isn’t he dreamy?) is hosting a contest called “Macy’s Keeps America Cooking.”

The requirements to enter are simple! Create a short video of yourself demonstrating an original recipe that represents what gets you cooking. Then end your video with the line, “From my (insert your town) kitchen to yours, Macy’s keeps it cooking.”

Online users can start by simply registering at Once they’re registered they can upload their video and share it. Viewers can vote for their favorite videos and make it their very own reality show!

The grand prize winner will receive a trip for two to San Francisco and a $2,500 kitchen shopping spree at Macy’s with Tyler Florence. 9 runners-up will receive a $1,000 Macy’s Gift Card. Winners will be selected from the top rated videos by Macy’s and Tyler Florence. All entries must be received by April 3rd, 2009 11:59 pm EST to qualify.

Bonus: Mention what you like about your local Macy’s or Macy’ in your video and if you have one of the top ten videos, you’ll win an additional $500 Macy’s Gift Card and your video will be included in the final podcast.
