I have a question about the contest. I know it says that staples like salt, pepper, and vegetable oils do not "count" in the 7 ingredient list. What about coconut oil or butter, or possibly even vanilla extract? Do those "count" in the 7 list, or are they considered pantry staples? (They certainly are in my house :)

I was unable to submit my recipe from the enter website because I keep getting the error "Please make sure your image is a jpg.". Mine was and was way under the 2 MB limit. I sent both my recipe and the photo to berries@wholefoods.com instead with hoping that all the work to develop the recipe and make it and get a good photo will allow me to be in the contest that ends tomorrow. Did you get my email and will you confirm my entry will be considered please? Thank you in advance. :-)

I also got the same jpg error message when trying to submit my entry, even though my photo was a jpg well under the 2MB limit. I just emailed my recipe and photo to berries@wholefoods.com, and would appreciate confirmation that it was received. Thank you!

Hey there! My husband and I had so much fun working on this. We submitted our entry the day before the deadline but I am wondering...did you guys get it?? Also, looking back at my jpeg, it appears to be 2.2 mb. The site took it but I hope that difference doesn't disqualify our entry. When we the results be posted? Will they be announced on this page?? Thanks for the fun and of course, the awesome organic fruit. Best, Barbara
