Here's another contestant with a really moist and sweet apple cake that was a family treasure and she had the recipe card to prove it...That cake was so good we all kept asking, how is this healthy?! It must be, because at this stage of the competition the recipes have already passed a nutritional evaluation. I ate the whole piece and others were trying to figure out how to divvy up the rest of the cake.
Here's a picture of a really soft egg white omelet made by a fun contestant I traded some laughs with ...The contest is not only judged on nutritional value, but for taste and presentation as well. So, the cool thing is some people really did their best to step it up in the plating and presentation department. Check out these pretty flowers for a gazpacho ... Pretty huh? And the gazpacho was the first of the competition so far, very smart! Actually, her presentation inspired me to get my paarty on ...Teeheehee ... I told everyone I was going to wear it in support of Aarti Party and they all smiled and said they liked her show and the flower! It fits her personality! Have you caught the show? My guy's mom says she LOVES it! There's a cool article she did in this month's Food Network Magazine that details the hours after she won and right through the taping of her first shows! Pretty cool read!
