Quick & Creative Mealtime Challenge: A FRIGIDAIRE GALLERY® GIVEAWAY

With more and more families leading active lifestyles, home-cooking has been put on the back burner while fast food, takeout and grab-and-go options have heated up… am I right?  Well, one of the reasons I’ve been so blessed by my partnership with Frigidaire Gallery® is because, just like my heart is to inspire YOU to cook more at home, they want to inspire you in the kitchen, too!

That’s why today my friends over at Frigidaire Gallery® are offering you a chance to win a featured Frigidaire Gallery® appliance packed with time-saving, easy-to-use innovations. And, the hope? That you’ll be inspired to create a quick, easy and creative meal that will appeal to all of us on-the-go families.

Here’s the scoop:

Starting today, you can enter the “Quick & Creative Weeknight Meal Challenge” by visiting www.frigidaire.com/contest to submit a quick and creative meal idea for a chance to win a featured Frigidaire Gallery® appliance of your choice AND have your recipe developed by a “well-known home chef and blogger”… me!

TAKE NOTE: ALL ENTRIES MUST BE SUBMITTED BY OCTOBER 23, 2015.

I’ll be selecting THREE WINNERS based on the following:

Creativity.
Speed of preparation.
Ease of cooking.

(Oh, and I also want to see you use at least TWO KRAFT® ingredients in the recipe.)

Here’s my example of what your entry might look like: 

“I marinate Tri Tip steak in a mixture of mayo, dijon mustard, lemon juice, garlic, fresh diced parsley, black pepper and sea salt, then I roast it in my oven at 400 degrees for 30 minutes.” 

That’s it… simple!

Here’s how my idea plays out in the kitchen:

Simple, creative ingredients:

1 Tri Tip roast, 1/2 cup of mayo, 1/4 cup of dijon mustard, juice from a lemon, 1 handful of rough chopped fresh parsley, 2 garlic cloves (smashed), 2 TBSP black pepper, 2 TBSP sea salt

MARINADE RECIPE:  1/2 cup of mayo, 1/4 cup of dijon mustard, juice from a lemon, 1 handful of rough chopped fresh parsley, 2 garlic cloves (smashed), 2 TBSP black pepper, 2 TBSP sea salt

 

Easy to prepare:

(With less than 5 minutes) Mix all ingredients in a bowl to create the marinade... then, place the meat in a large plastic bag with the marinade and allow to sit for at least 1 hour (but up to 24 hours)

(With less than 5 minutes) Mix all ingredients in a bowl to create the marinade… then, place the meat in a large plastic bag with the marinade and allow to sit for at least 1 hour (but up to 24 hours)

Easy to cook:

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F and roast the meat on a roasting pan for 15 minutes per pound – and, in the last three minutes of cooking, turn on the broiler so the meat and ingredients really sizzle on top.

Remove meat from the oven, place on a cutting board (or plate), and cover with tinfoil for at least 10 minutes. While meat is resting you can prepare the table or the other sides… and get ready to enjoy!

Delicious to serve:

Thinly slice the meat against the grain and serve with roasted potatoes, a hearty-spinach salad, or (my favorite) a simple quinoa salad made with roasted veggies and a little olive oil.

Now… YOUR TURN :)

Please SHARE this opportunity with your friends and family and GET YOUR ENTRY IN BEFORE OCTOBER 23rd!! I’m looking forward to seeing all your creative ideas.
