To enter, folks created an original summer appetizer, side dish, or dessert recipe and submitted it to us during the month of June. 10 finalists were chosen by our RecipeLion panel of judges, including our in-house celebrity chef, Addie Gundry and our winner was announced on the first of the month. Again, thank you to everyone that participated and voted for your favorite recipe!
We’d like to officially congratulate RaChelle Hubsmith for her winning dish, Strawberry Lemon Chocolate Parfaits. Yum!
We can’t wait to host her in our test kitchen when she spends a day shadowing, Addie Gundry.
Addie is the chef and author of RecipeLion’s 103 Cookbook series and was a contestant on the most recent season (13) of The Next Food Network Star! She has worked alongside Martha Stewart, Thomas Kellar, Bobby Flay, and Giada De Laurentiis.
