…who just minutes ago won $5,000 (plus $3,000 in GE appliances) as one of four finalists in the Pillsbury Bake-Off! Donna won in the Dinner Made Easy category for her Chicken Empanada Cones. There were 10,000 entries in the overall contest this year and she was one of just 100 finalists flown to Florida to compete, and then announced (by Martha Stewart, no less) as one of the final four. Back in Jersey, Donna is a reference library at Mercer County College and president of the Newcomers Club. Well done, Donna!
The winner of the $1 million top prize is from right across the border: Christina Verrelli of Devon, PA won with her recipe in the Sweet Treats category for Pumpkin Ravioli with Salted Caramel Whipped Cream.
Congrats to both ladies!!
