First, we’d like to thank everyone who submitted recipes in this year’s All Natural Recipe Contest. It was extremely difficult to narrow the entries down to just four finalists, but we managed to do it. We’ll feature each of the finalists here on the blog this week, starting with today’s entry, which is proof that sometimes the simplest recipes are the most delicious.
After all four finalists are posted on the blog, we’ll open up the polls on Friday, where your votes will determine which recipe will take home the grand prize — a one year supply of Turkey Hill Ice Cream!
