Pillsbury Bake-Off Giveaway

My son and I always cook together, creating dishes together and having fun. I think it is important to share cooking & time in the kitchen with children. One day he may be a famous chef on TV or a family chef teaching his children how to cook. We can't wait to try some yummy recipes from the Pillsbury recipes book. I don't have a million dollar recipe idea at the time, but you may have one. Now is the time to listen up.

Calling all home cooks! Do you have a million dollar recipe idea? The 45th Pillsbury Bake-Off Contest is open for entries and one simple recipe idea could help you take home the dough!

Pillsbury is looking for original recipes that taste and look delicious, are easy to prepare and that families across America will love to eat. Consumers can submit recipes in one of four recipe categories:
  • The Breakfast & Brunches category includes casual brunch or weekend family breakfast ideas. For example, sweet rolls, pull-aparts, pastries, breakfast breads, egg dishes or breakfast sandwiches.
  • In the Entertaining Appetizers category, entrants can submit appetizers and snacks to serve at casual gatherings with family and friends or for holiday entertaining. For example, bite size appetizers, tartlets, pinwheels, puffs, bruschetta or focaccia.
  • The Dinner Made EasyTM category encourages home cooks to create easy-to-prepare main dishes that will delight your family. For example, pizzas, calzones, sandwiches, foldovers, casseroles, chilis, soups or savory pies.
  • Quick and easy treats for anytime celebrations can be entered into the Sweet Treats category. For example, cookies, pies, tarts, brownies or bars.
Entries are being accepted online between now and April 18, 2011, at www.bakeoff.com.
