Contest-Worthy (Sometimes Winning) Recipes: My Top 5.

It's always nice to be recognized. And today when I found out that I won 2nd place in the Whole Grains Council, "I Love My Whole Grains" recipe contest, I was grinning ear to ear. I am in no way, shape or form a seasoned recipe contest participant, I've only entered a handful of humble recipe/photo contests. However, I am proud to say that I have won or placed in a few. I am always especially thrilled when one of my recipes (which are always vegan) win or place in a mainstream-food recipe contest. So while you definitely won't see me competing in the Pillsbury Bake-Off (even though the top prize is 1 million bucks) I do love entering my vegan recipes in a few inspiring (and healthy-friendly) contests here and there. And I'd like to share with you my contest recipes. I'm proud that two of the contests were associated with two of my fave chefs: Bobby Flay and Eric Ripert. Check out my Top 5 Contest-Worthy (Sometimes Winning) Recipes. (and find out what I won)...
