Pillsbury’s 44th Bake-Off Contest is where people enter recipes in hopes of the grand prize…$1 million dollars! The contest’s entry period ended in mid-April 2009, but we’ve been invited to help with the judging! For the first time in the contest’s 60-year history, we can help determine 10 recipes among the final 100 that will compete for the $1 million grand prize!
How does the You Be the Judge! voting work? Judges selected 20 recipes to be placed online HERE in pairs for a period of two weeks. We can vote for our favorite recipe in each pair. The recipe from each pair that wins the most votes will earn a spot in the final competition, April 11-13, 2010, in Orlando, Florida. The first pair was posted May 14th and changes every two weeks.
Not only do we get to judge recipes but they’ve also offered me a prize pack for TWO of my lucky readers. The prize pack will include a magazine of over 175 past Bake-Off® recipes/tips and a Pillsbury Doughboy giggle doll. (The magazine is more like a book and each recipe has a yummy picture! As far as the doughboy…He’s soo cute and about 16″ tall!)
While I encourage you all to vote, you don’t need to vote to enter.
