When Hilary from Baking Bad posted that she wanted to vì chưng a Chopped Challenge on her blog I was all over it. I don’t watch many cooking shows, but I was introduced to the show Chopped on The Food Network when visiting my Mom in FL last year.

Her & her husband are AVID TFN watchers và this show came on during one of our visits. I have to lớn say that the show really intrigued me. The contestants are given four ingredients and they have to lớn make an appetizer, meal và dessert course.

With each course, one contestant is eliminated, leaving only two contestants to lớn make the dessert course; where the panel of judges get to lớn decide who gets Chopped và who is the winner.

I love to watch the creative juices flow as they decide what it is they’re going to lớn make with what they are given.
