Who doesn’t love Pillsbury? Pillsbury brings to mind butter smothered rolls and biscuits or cinnamon rolls drizzled with cream cheese icing. I myself don’t enjoy cooking but I do enjoy baking. However I admit I am unable to throw together my own recipes, I am one of those people that follows the recipe to a T. So you won’t find me entering too many baking recipes. However I figured it may be something some of my readers would enjoy. Below are the details of the 45th Pillsbury Bake Off and a fun giveaway at the end.
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 Easy™ 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. One hundred lucky finalists will compete for a chance at the grand prize during the contest finals, which take place March 25-27, 2012 at the Peabody Orlando Hotel in Florida. You’ll also find contest details, including eligible products, prizes and the official rules, on the web site.
The recipes will be judged for 1) taste, 2) appearance, 3) creativity and 4) consumer appeal. All entries must meet the requirements of the recipe category and appropriately use two of the eligible products in at least the quantity specified.
I received a Pillsbury Bake-Off Gift Pack that included an apron, cook book, pen, and notepad. The cookbook is definitely going to come in handy. The apron I gave to my daughter because I have my father’s apron in my kitchen. Honey was excited to show you her new apron and promptly went into her kitchen to whip me up some goodies. If anyone enjoys cooking in this family it is my little girl.
Disclaimer: I received the same gift pack described above. These are my honest opinions, the receiving of this product in no way swayed that opinion. Thank you to My Blog Spark and Pillsbury for providing this prize to one of my readers. You may read more of my disclosure here.
