What I didn't know, at first, was that I would also receive a Magic Bullet To Go. I found out when I submitted all of the entries including a couple of my own. Wow! What an unexpected surprise! This will be faster and easier to make in my Magic Bullet-- I can't wait for it to arrive. There are four of you who will receive one. Here are the winners, chosen by the lovely and generous folks at Magic Bullet:

I'm a big sweet snack addict..one of my favorites is instant cheesecake for one (okay so it might be enough for two but hey, who's counting). I take a few graham crackers and smash them up (this would be so much easier with a magic bullet!), mix them with a little melted butter and put them in the bottom of a small bowl (I just use a cereal bowl)set aside. In a seperate bowl combine a small container of greek yogurt, about 1/2 package of cream cheese, some sugar to taste, and a squeeze of lemon juice, mix until smooth ..again would be sooo much easier in a magic bullet ;) pour over graham cracker 'crust'. Whip up some fresh whipped cream and spread over top. Chill for as long as you are able to wait.(sorry, don't think magic bullet would help with the waiting part, although it would get the rest done faster!) :)
"Pink Lady Gumbo" entry was:
