Don’t Forget — Bake-Off Coverage Blog

by on April 14, 2008 · 6 comments

Today’s the big day!

The contestants have hit the ground running and you can follow the action on the Bake-off blog.

My reign is coming to an end.  LOL. (sob sob sob).

Okay, I’m not really crying. 

I’m a little verklempt.  Talk amongst yourselves….I’ll give you a topic.  Cookies!

(P.S. Tracy’s covering it from the contestant point of view over on her blog)

I love the play by play in his blog. How exciting for them all!

Anna, is the bake-off every year or every other year? And you can NEVER compete in it again? Boo!

i noted that one fourth of the recipes are pizza (like, 23-25, depending on whether you include the dessert tart thing and the “tuscan walnut squares”). that has convinced me that a pizza will win. (well, either that or the turkey/bacon/brie panini; but i digress.) is there gambling on this? have you scanned the recipes? do you have a favorite? (have you already mentioned it and i missed it?)

look, there will never be another chicken with waffle stuffing. nothing can surpass. as far as i’m concerned, the pillsbury bake-off is dead to me

Debbi, I’ve been away from home this morning and haven’t checked it. However, I will have some footage later, so stay tuned! Hopefully I’ll have it before 3:00 CST.

Melanie, yes, I believe so. But I think they open for entries every 18 months. I forget.

TG, there are some really creative entries this year and since nothing makes it without actually tasting good, I really have no idea who will win. I had a few picked, then changed my mind, then changed it all again.

What it all comes down to is how well people do on the actual Bake-Off floor. All recipes go in with an equal shot (so I’ve been told) and the contestants have to send the most perfect version back to the judges.

Oh my – you must be the Anna G. that won. I remember that contest. No wonder you’re such a great baker with such a wonderful website. You can tell I’ve just discovered all the great food blogs.

I just found your blog yesterday and thought, a fellow Texan who loves cookies, how wonderful. Then you said “talk amongst yourselves” and I cracked up! Thanks for the laugh, can’t wait to read more yummy recipes on here.
