Announcing the Winners of Our First-Ever Instagram Contest

Hey, Instagram friends -- we loved spending Thanksgiving with you.

Chow Bella hasn't had an Instagram account for long (follow us at @chowbellaphx) but we're already addicted to snapping, filtering and posting -- and apparently you are, too, judging from the beautiful and entertaining images we've been following.

Last week, we held our first (but not last) Instagram contest.

We had 55 images tagged #chowbellathanksgiving -- and our mouths were watering over your stuffing, your soup and most of all, your pie. (You know we have a soft spot for pie around here.)

Thanks to everyone who participated -- we wish we had a Chow Bella apron for each and every one of you. But we have to save a few for the next contest.

Our winners: @sapphola @lakeeler and @thekingoftheworld

Email Amy at [email protected] and we'll get that apron to you so you can get started on your holiday baking. And don't forget to follow us: @chowbellaphx
