Please note that while your recipe is undergoing review, it is not yet considered a valid entry into the contest.
Once your recipe is reviewed, you will receive a confirmation email at the email address you supplied on the registration form. If your recipe complies with the Official Rules, this confirmation email will state that your submission has been accepted as an approved entry into the contest.
