The bake off contest is coming up in April and I wondered if many people follow it? I know the recipes have been bashed on Chowhound because they use a lot of convenience products. However, I'm a finalist this year and happy to be a part of it, convenience products or not!
I think there are a lot of interesting/varied/ethnic recipes this time around. And yes, I love to bake/cook from scratch but I don't think it's necessarily bad to use store-bought products from time to time. Anyway, I'm proud to have made it this far.
Anyone intersted can see all the recipes at http://www.bakeoff.com I'd love to hear what others think about finalist recipes. And I'm sure I'm opening myself to some bashing, but oh well...my recipe is Mango, Prosciutto and Goat Cheese Appetizer Pizza. Can't wait to hear from all the goat cheese haters! :-)
