Copycat Panera Four Cheese Soufflé

My Copycat Panera Cheese Soufflé Recipe Won a Contest!

Remember my Copycat Panera Four-Cheese Breakfast Soufflé recipe I posted in May? Well, I was searching the web one day for “how to make a harvest apron” when I found a couple of contests on Instructables. I was also researching SEO and finding ways to generate traffic to my blog.

Embossed hardcover of Shady Characters by Keith Houston
Shady Characters by Keith Houston cover jacket

I like to see its funny, yet stunning title in bold white lettering embedded on the black long shadow of a giant white pilcrow floating on a bright red background. It’s a pretty jacket, over an exquisite white hardcover embossed with punctuation, symbols & other typographical marks, with black binding. The symbols stand out on the pages in bright red within the black text.
