Paralegal Hooked on Competitive Cooking
It’s no secret that the Editor-in-Chief and Head Bottle Washer at Practical Paralegalism is an uninspired cook who is very lucky to be married to a man who loves to try new recipes. Otherwise, our family would have cereal or Happy Meals every night for dinner.
The grand prize for the winning recipe? $1,000,000. (I think I got the right number of zeros.)
The 46-year-old mother of two reports her love of cooking began with her dad and now has blossomed into “real food.”
“I love comfort foods. I like to cook everyday dishes and add something to make them stand out. For instance, I make a killer meatloaf that has carrots in it (it’s a great way to keep the meatloaf moist and get the kids to eat veggies!).”
Pittman’s dream is to meet Emeril. She has competed in Good Morning America/Emeril’s Comfort Food for the Coast, Good Morning America/Emeril’s Best Burger Ever Challenge, and the Food Network’s Ultimate Recipe Showdown.
The names of the recipes Pittman has submitted for national contests are mouth-watering, including Upside Down Apple Caramel Biscuits, Orange Chipotle Cream Sauce, and Honey Peppered Pork Burger with Fresh Peach Relish. (I need to find these recipes for my husband.)
Practical Paralegalism commends Laureen Pittman on her successful competitive cooking and wishes her the best of success at this year’s Pillsbury Bake-Off.
