It’s that time of year again….Extreme food makeover!!!

The holidays are here, and no matter how you celebrate, we all gotta eat!  Holiday foods=comfort foods and comfort foods=unhealthy, right? WRONG!

This holiday season, Cooking Matters challenges YOU to makeover a typically unhealthy holiday favorite.  This is a totally nondenomenational competition– whatever your family eats over the holidays is fair game!  The only rule is that you incorporate healthy ingredients and cooking techniques when recreating your dish!

The competition begins TODAY, Friday the 14th of December, 2012.

The secret ingredients are:

1. Winter Squash

2. Peanut Butter

3. Cinnamon

Although secret ingredients are optional, using them awards you bonus points.  The more secret ingredients you incorporate the more points you win!

Entries are due via the Cooking Matters Michigan facebook page by midnight on Sunday.  Post your recipe along with a picture or 2 of the final product.  We encourage you to share your inspiration for this dish, how you prepared it, and what this dish means for you and your family!

What’s at stake here?  PRIZES!!!  The winner and the runner up will be able to choose from an array of awesome goodies.

Winners will be announced on Monday.

Get Cooking!  Good luck and Happy Holidays!!!
