“Cooking Light with Cranberries” proved to be a popular recipe contest! We had many delectable entries to choose from – so many amazing recipes, in fact, that we had to pick FOUR winners instead of our usual three. This is most definitely a win/win situation for those that submitted recipes and for you, dear reader.
Our contest participants were asked for recipes that were considered “light” – 500 calories or less per serving for the purposes of this quarter’s theme. Of course, the finished product needed to use cranberries and be DELICIOUS despite their “light” status. Congratulations to all four of our winners for tickling the tummies of our test kitchen tasters and thank you to everyone who took the time to submit a recipe. And please, keep the recipes coming in our current recipe contest! You continue to delight us with your creativity and general yumminess.
In a tie for first place are:
- Donna Beck of Bonney Lake, WA for her “Spicy Fresh & Dried Cranberry Curried Chicken” and
- Penny Langer of Camp Douglas, WI for her “FetaCran Turkey Wrap“
In second place is: Lily Kayte of Gainesville, FL for her “Wilted Carrot Cranberry Slaw”
And in third place is: Jayne Hanna of Mekoryuk, AK for her “Good for You Granola.”
All four of the winners will receive special prizes from the Wisconsin Cranberry Discovery Center. All the winning recipes can be viewed in full by clicking here: 2013 2nd Quarter Recipe Contest Winners
