Congratulations to Candi from Family, Stamping and FOOD!, who won the CNS Store giveaway!
Can you believe we only have 4 chefs left in the challenge?
I like Sandra Lee's quick fix philosophy when you need things done quickly and don't have time for everything from scratch. I probably do most of my cooking like this. The background on her is neat.
"Sandra Lee has a passion for simple solutions that create dramatic results in all areas of home life. She is editor-in-chief of Sandra Lee Semi-Homemade magazine, a popular television host, and an internationally-acclaimed home and food expert who has revolutionized the way people think about homemade. With her trademark 70/30 Semi-Homemade® philosophy, which combines 70% ready-made products with 30% fresh and creative touches, Sandra is recognized as the foremost advocate to over-extended people. She created the platform to continually supply savory tactics that allows anyone to take 100% of the credit for something that looks, feels and tastes as if it were made from scratch.
Sandra's philosophy was born out of necessity and the challenges she faced throughout her childhood. The oldest of five children, Sandra was responsible for caring for her four younger siblings and managing the household finances. Forced to live on welfare and food stamps, Sandra quickly learned how to turn budget-friendly packaged foods into delicious and special meals for her family while stretching every dollar. These early experiences laid the foundation for what would eventually become Semi-Homemade®. "
We will post Sandra Lee's recipes on Wednesday, April 28, 2010. Can't wait to see what you choose! Enjoy the rest of your week~
