Stocks in this article: GEGIS

MINNEAPOLIS, Oct. 3, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- One hundred top home cooks are proving that taste and creativity do not have to be sacrificed when it comes to quick and easy recipes in this year's Pillsbury Bake-Off® Contest. Finalists packed big flavors and ideas, like Sriracha sauce and food mashups, into simple, family-friendly recipes made with seven ingredients or less and no more than 30 minutes of active prep time. The original recipes competing for the $1 million grand prize in the 46 th Pillsbury Bake-Off® Contest reflect current tastes and trends and are ready for trying at www.BakeOff.com.

"The 100 finalist recipes show the creativity and care today's best amateur chefs are putting into their cooking and baking," said Jann Atkins, Pillsbury Bake-Off® Kitchens Manager. "The recipes have depth and flavor while providing quick meal and snack time solutions that will appeal to family and friends."

Throughout the year, home cooks were invited to submit original recipes that included at least two eligible ingredients and fit into one of the three contest categories: Amazing Doable Dinners, Simple Sweets and Starters and Quick Rise and Shine Breakfasts. The Bake-Off® Kitchens selected the 60 best recipes in each category to be placed online for public voting. America's votes selected the final 100 recipes which will compete November 10-11, 2013 in Las Vegas at the contest finals.

Of the 100 final recipes, which are available online at BakeOff.com, four major themes emerged:

1. Sriracha is becoming as mainstream as ketchup or salsa

Demographic shifts and an increased popularity in spicier foods have turned Sriracha, an Asian-inspired hot sauce made from sun-ripened chiles, into a kitchen staple for many. Several Bake-Off® Finalists used Sriracha, along with other heat inducing ingredients like chili oil, chili paste and chipotle, this year to spice up their breakfast and dinner entries.
