Veggie Patch Cooks Up a Contest with Sneaky Chef Missy Chase Lapine to Sneak More Vegetables into Family Meals
Posted Dec 27 2010 12:00pm
In our family, trying to come up with meals that everyone will eat is a major problem. The biggest challenge for us is vegetables. I have to admit that I’m not a huge veggie lover, and a couple of my children are the same way. So, we’re always open to ideas for adding veggies to our meals without the ick factor, if you know what I mean. With that in mind, I’m going to be checking out the entries in a great new contest hosted by Veggie Patch , makers of better-for-you vegetarian foods and meatless snack options.
The Ultimate Sneak-Away Contest , hosted on Facebook with best-selling author and culinary expert, Missy Chase Lapine -- known as The Sneaky Chef -- invites moms to share their favorite tip, trick or recipe designed to sneak veggies into a meal, snack or dessert. One lucky “Sneak of the Week” submission will win The Ultimate Sneak-Away grand prize, including an exclusive, in-person culinary consultation with Missy Chase Lapine, who will share cooking tips and provide custom nutritional advice. In addition, Missy will prepare a delicious dinner for the family while mom sneaks out of the kitchen to enjoy a relaxing spa treatment.
The contest starts today, December 27, 2010, and runs for five weeks. (Submissions close on January 30, 2011.) Three recipes will be selected each week by Veggie Patch and Missy Chase Lapine as the featured “Sneak of the Week.” At the end of the contest, the 15 finalists, dubbed “Undercover Mothers,” will receive prize packages, including a year’s worth of Veggie Patch products and a Flip Video™ UltraHD™ Camcorder to film themselves in the kitchen whipping up their recipe and providing step-by-step cooking instruction to help others re-create the dish in their own home. All videos will be uploaded to the contest Facebook page , and voting for the Undercover Mothers will be held from February 15-22, 2011. Consumers, fans, friends and family can vote online for their favorite Undercover Mother video and recipe to win The Ultimate Sneak-Away grand prize!
If you’ve discovered a great way to sneak those much-needed vegetables into your family’s meals, I hope you’ll enter The Ultimate Sneak-Away Contest on Facebook! The grand prize winner will be announced on Veggie Patch’s Facebook page on February 23, 2011.
