I love to cook. I love to eat. I love to eat what I cook. Simple as that. But do you want to know a secret? Up until a few years ago, I did not consider myself a good cook. Sure, I knew how to follow recipes and end up with good results. However, I was not at all creative when it came to recipes. Do you know what changed that? Grad school. Now, you would think that not having much time for anything but studying would lead to less creativity in the kitchen, but I had to be creative with what I had in my fridge or pantry or risk going hungry!
One day after eating a can of peaches for dinner, I decided that I just had to start throwing ingredients into pots, pans, baking dishes, and see what turned out to be edible. It was like Iron Chef every time I walked into the kitchen! Sometimes you miss, but it's awesome when you hit a recipe on the head!
In fact, the recipe I shared a few weeks ago for my Creamy Jalapeño Poppers With Sausage was one of my first original recipes. Now, it is a definite game day fave! Definitely a yummy experiment!
Nowadays, I like to take familiar dishes and turn them on their heads. Remember these Chicken Nugget & Waffle Sliders?
Or my recent Chicken Pot Hand Pie recipe?
These S'mores Mini Donuts were a fun little party dish I threw together!
Do you think any of these could win me a million dollars? I already entered the Do Us a Flavor contest once, but I have so many more flavors that I can't wait to try them out.
Here are some more details and click here for the official rules...
"The Lay’s “Do Us A Flavor” contest invites fans nationwide to submit their ideas for the next great Lay’s potato chip flavor for the chance to win a $1 million grand prize. A judging panel made up of chefs, foodies and flavor experts will narrow down the contest submissions to four finalist flavors. The four finalist flavors will then be fully developed by Frito-Lay’s culinary experts and unveiled in summer 2014 and sold nationwide. From there, it will be up to fans to vote for the finalist flavor they want to see stay on store shelves, and the finalist behind the winning flavor will take home the million dollar grand prize."
That means in a few short months, you could be a millionaire if you have the winning idea! Also, this year there is a new option for you to choose between the three chip types: Lay's Original, Lay's Kettle Cooked and/or Lay's Wavy for your flavor idea. So many options!
What are you waiting for? Submit your idea now for the chance to win $1,000,000! Good luck!
