enter a recipe in pillsbury's bake-off contest (w/giveaway)

generally speaking, i don't have enough confidence in my cooking to feel good about inviting people over for supper, let alone coming up with my own recipes. lately, however, bill has been raving about my own version of chicago-style pizza, that i'm considering sharing my recipe with the world...

...or at least with the pillsbury bake-off judging team.

right now, pillsbury is running their annual bake-off competition.  entries must use at least two ingredients from a list of approved products.  entries can be submitted in the following categories:  breakfast and brunches, entertaining appetizers, sweets and treats, or (this is where i would submit my pizza recipe) dinner made easy.  recipes will be judged according to taste, appearance, creativity and consumer appeal.

do you have a recipe you think has a chance of winning the $1 million prize?  maybe you are like me and would just be happy to be honored with one of the other awards... you have from now to april 18, 2011 to enter your prize-winning recipe.  100 finalists will be given round trip prizes to orlando, fl on march 25-27, 2012.

as a little "spark" to get your creative cooking juices flowing, i have an apron and a recipe book to offer to one of you, my faithful readers.  simply leave a comment below telling me which of your recipes you might consider entering into the bake-off.  i will choose a winner on february 22 using (usa residents only).

i received my own prize pack as a thank you for writing this post from pillsbury through my blog spark.  regardless, the thought and opinions expressed here are purely my own.


  1. Hmm, I might consider the Cranberry Pistachio bread recipe. It's a perfect blend of tropical and winter comfort foods... and makes our family go........hmmmm !

  2. Honestly, I haven't got a recipe that I could enter in the contest. I am not too creative in the kitchen.
