Congratulations to Diane Smith of Pine Mountain, GA! Her Dee Dee's South of the Border Corn Pudding took top honors in the Just A Pinch Get Fresh: Veggie Favorites Contest.

"Nothing brings summer to the table like fresh vegetables out of the garden. Hope you enjoy this loaded corn pudding!"

For her outstanding veggie creation Diane wins a $500 gardening gift package. Thanks to all of you who opened up their recipe boxes and let their veggies shine - they were outstanding!!!

Additional congrats go to our runners-up:
Spicy Gazpacho - Sandra McGrath of Harrisville, RI
"Summertime is such a great opportunity, to take advantage of the bounty and availability of tomatoes and cucumbers. I find this a refreshing change to the usual picnic fare (although I will never give up my cookout dishes!). It's both tasty and healthy."

Roasted Beet Salad with Honey Dijon Vinaigrette - Susan Bickta of Kutztown, PA
"This delicious salad is a combination of three of my favorite salads. I like to make this during the holidays because it is so colorful. I almost called it "Bejeweled Roasted Beet Salad" because of all of the jewel-tone colors!"

Are you ready for some winning too? Check out the latest Just A Pinch contests and ENTER TO WIN some tasty prizes of your own!
