PRLog - Sep. 25, 2012 - NEW CITY, N.Y. -- NEW CITY, New York – The Crafty Hostess, a premiere online destination for food, entertaining and party planning, recently announced that they will be accepting recipes for their 2nd annual Virtual Holiday Cookie Swap until November 1, 2012. Unlike a typical cookie swap or exchange, the program is completely digital, allowing contributors to submit their favorite holiday cookie recipes via email. The recipes will be compiled in an electronic recipe book and shared on social media sites like facebook and twitter.
“The Crafty Hostess created this program to give their readers a taste of various cultures and holiday traditions in a format that leverages the social aspects of today’s lifestyle,” said Danielle Addimandi, Co-Founder. “The recipe book can be shared across many social networks, thus having great viral capability.”
In addition to collecting recipes from blog readers and social followers, this year, The Crafty Hostess will also actively engage baking-related brands to sponsor a page in the recipe book. “There are so many brands that would be a great fit for the program,” said Dawn Lanzillotti, Co-Founder. “From staple products like flour and sugar to novelties, bakeware and small appliances, the possibilities are endless.”
Launched in January 2011, The Crafty Hostess is the premiere web destination for recipes, entertaining tips, party planning ideas, stunning tablescapes, holiday and special occasion decorating, kid-friendly foods and crafts, and much more. Founded by two moms who are marketing professionals, The Crafty Hostess strives to provide inspiration and easy strategies for the home cook, baker, and entertainer;
