Pillsbury Bake-Off category winners announced

I think that once you've been a part of the Pillsbury Bake-Off contest, you're a fan forever. It's a great event. I didn't enter this year's contest, but I sure watched last weekend's activities with interest.

This year, Pillsbury is doing things a bit differently. They announced the four category winners yesterday. Those four winners were flown to Chicago (from the contest location in Orlando) and will appear on Oprah tomorrow, when the winning recipe will be announced. I was a category winner in 2004, and to be honest, I can't imagine waiting more than 24 hours to know if I won the million. I'd be a total wreck, but how exciting to be on Oprah!

Here's a link to the category winners. Most past participants I've chatted with online are betting the inventive fish tacos will win. Since my category has been appetizers both times, I'm going to put my money on the salmon appetizers. It's about time a good appetizer won! At any rate, congratulations to the category winners. Can't wait to see who wins!

I see it was the ice-cream cups! They were pretty cute.

I've never, ever entered a food contest. I think it's about time I try!

Wow! This looks amazing, I'm definitely going to try it. I love your recipes. I'm a long time reader of your fabulous blog, but first time follower as I've only just opened a blogger account and set up a blog (http://bakezilla1.blogspot.com/). I just hope mine is as great as yours! :)
