Last year I had the honour of being selected as a judge for the the Better Together Hands-On Cook-Off! It was a great opportunity to be able to see all the videos that people submitted, showing their creativity  and passion for food! It's that time again to submit a video:

If you’re a BC resident, you can submit your 3-minute long (or less) home video cooking show between April 20 and noon of May 20. Grab a friend or relative and show us your stuff!

Videos must include two or more people preparing a recipe together… and having fun!

I was pretty excited that Better Together BC, invited me to be one of the judges of their Hand-On Cook-Off Contest this year!! It's super easy to enter, just grab a phone or video camera and film yourself with a friend or family member making a recipe! Anyone can enter, and the judges are looking for you having fun in the kitchen!!

The contest is really great because it encourages kids and parents to cook and eat together, and unplug at meal times!!

My parents and I try to eat together for almost every dinner. I like to cook a lot of the meals that we eat, and get help from my mom and dad!

Looking forward to seeing your videos!

Here's what to do:
