  1. Oh I wanted to win this…
    I love that spaghetti stuffed garlic bread.
    I’ve never heard of this, this seemed really good.

  2. None are really that hard but the franks would be hard for me for a recipe. I don’t know what I would make

  3. My challenge meal would be the Chef Boyardee. I’d never have thought to do anything other than heat & eat!

  4. My biggest dinner challenge is actually sitting down and eating a meal. I’m so busy and when I get home I don’t want to cook, so I just grab whatever.

  5. I would have to say the spaghetti stuffed garlic bread…looks amazing, but then again, all your recipes do!

  6. My biggest challenge: Trying to take the time to plan for healthy meals on a budget with our crazy schedule plus two toddlers!

  7. I think that the hot dogs that you did would be hard because there are limited things I would be able to think of. Thanks for the chance to enter.

  8. My biggest challenge is making sure I have enough time to get dinner done after school but before meetings. Thanks for the chance to enter.

  9. The spaghetti seemed the hardest… Spaghetti from a can doesn’t. Sound appetizing to me, but I think I’m going to try your recipe… It sounds delish! I don’t know what I woul have done with it…mixed it in with pasta and cheese for a baked pasta? Yours sounds way better.:)

  10. I’m a teacher, and this week I’ve been just plain EXHAUSTED when I get home. I’m starving, too, so I want something quick, but satisfying. After a day spent with 20 8 year olds, I need something yummy!:)

  11. I think the most challenging for me would be the Chef Boyardee! I would make a baked spaghetti with lots of ooey, gooey cheese on top!

  12. My biggest challenge about cooking during the school week is coming up with different dishes that doesn’t contain chicken! My daughter is a picky eater and she loves chicken. She does get tired of it at times. She love Chef Boyardee so this recipe would be great!

  13. for me it would be the Chef Boyardee… I would probably attempt some sort of casserole using it, but not sure… I’d have to think about it.

  14. my biggest dinner challenge is time wise… finding the time to make a healthy nutritious meal for the family when I get home from work exhausted myself around 5 everyday..

  15. Holy cow. My biggest challenge would have been Chef Boyardee. It is amazing how you did it and it looks so yummy. I would most likely add vegetables (like red and yellow peppers), add cheese and bake into a casserole. Boring probably, but I am not you! LOL
