I always love to check out how creative some people are, especially when it comes to creating new recipes in the kitchen. Recently, Mrs. Dash seasoning blends hosted a recipe challenge called the “Mrs. Dash Dashionista Recipe Challenge”. Fans of the brand submitted their favorite original recipes featuring Mrs. Dash seasoning blends for a chance to win a $5,000 Grand Prize and other great prizes.

Voting is now open and the public is invited to vote for their favorite recipe here. I’m loving the Carribean Chicken and Pineapple Skewers. Yum! Which is your favorite?

“Top This” Pizza Challenge & A Giveaway {2 Winners}

Friday night is usually pizza night in our house. After we have a long discussion over which pizza toppings we want on our pizza we spend time driving to get it and spend about $20. Bays English Muffins has the solution! It’s easy, quick and affordable to make your own pizzas and using english muffins ensures that everyone is happy with the toppings on their pizzas!

To prove how easy it is to please picky eaters with these mini pizzas, Bays is challenging consumers to “Top This” for a chance to win a trip for two to Italy where they will take classes at a well-known cooking school. In addition, five finalists will receive a case of Bays English Muffins. This contest runs through May 31st. You can find more details on the contest here.

Here are the pizzas we made for dinner:

Here are the pizzas we made for dessert:

We probably won’t win any contests with those pizzas but they were so easy and quick to make which is perfect for our busy family! The dinner pizzas were ready in less than 15 minutes (and only about 2 minutes were used actually putting them together- the rest was cooking time). The dessert pizzas took even less time. We just toasted them and added marshmallow fluff, nutella, and sprinkles.

I normally only eat butter or peanut butter on my english muffins and have them for breakfast or a snack. This was my first time eating Bays English Muffins and I really enjoyed trying them out at dinner time. They were nice and crispy around the edges and really soft on the insides. Sinisa loved that they tasted like fresh baked bread, even though they had been in the fridge for a couple weeks. {Another plus is that they have a long shelf time. The “best by” dates on our packages were two months out.}

Want to try out Bays English Muffins for yourself? You are in luck!
