sidedishescontestfbpromo403 2013 300x300 2013 Thanksgiving Recipe Contest Winner NamedCongratulations to Hidemi Walsh – the winner of PMall.com’s Side Dishes That Steal The Show Recipe Contest 2013!

Here is Hidemi’s winning recipe for Brown Butter Sweet Potato Crumble:

For the topping:

  • 1/4 cup All-purpose flour
  • 2 cups Granola
  • 2 tablespoons Brown Sugar
  • 1/4 cup Raisins
  • 1 teaspoon Ground Cinnamon
  • 3 tablespoons Butter

For Brown Butter Sweet Potato:

  • 2-3 Sweet Potatoes (about 1 pound)
  • 3 tablespoons Butter
  • 2 tablespoons Honey

Directions: Peel and cut the sweet potatoes in half length-wise then slice them 1/4 inch thick. Put the sweet potatoes on a microwave-safe plate, cover in plastic wrap and microwave on high for 3-4 minutes or until tender. In a skillet, melt butter over medium heat until foaming subsides. Turn off the heat and let stand until browned. Then stir in honey and sweet potatoes. Toss to coat well. Transfer the sweet potatoes into an 8×8 baking dish. Start making the topping in a medium bowl by mixing together flour, granola, cinnamon and brown sugar. Add the butter and work it in with your fingertips until well blended and crumbly. Fold in raisins. Sprinkle the topping over the sweet potatoes. Bake in a preheated oven at 350 degrees F for 25-28 minutes.

ChiliCompetition 12 Tell Us Why Your Chili is the Best & Win!With National Chili Day being celebrated Thursday, February 23rd and with the winter’s “chili” weather hitting us hard, it seems like now is the perfect time for A Personal Touch to host a chili recipe contest!

People can be very particular and territorial about their chili. Depending on where you live, some people say that real chili isn’t made with beans, while in other parts of town they’ll say it’s not chili unless it has beans. And then there are the people who like to have fun with traditional recipes and add a new twist ingredient to them like cinnamon or even chocolate!

But no chili is complete without the main staples like meat, onions and tomatoes – all of which are ingredients that require a whole lot of prep work. That’s why the winner of the contest will be awarded their very own personalized You Name It© Bamboo Cutting Board so that they have a beautiful place that they can use to create their masterpiece!

Since all “chili purists” seem to claim that their masterpiece recipe is the best in the world … we want to hear why your recipe really is the best for the PersonalizationMall.com “My Chili is the Best Because …” Recipe Contest!

To enter, all you have to do is send an email with the subject line, “Chili Contest” to social@pmall.com with the following information:

- In a few sentences, tell us what it is about your chili recipe that sets it apart from all the rest.

- Please include your full name and email address so we know how to contact you if you’re the winner.

Just make sure to have your emails sent to us before the deadline at midnight on Thursday, February 23rd. We will announce the winner of the contest, who will be judged by creativity and uniqueness and selected by the A Personal Touch Staff, here at the blog on February 24th.

We look forward to hearing all your special recipes … our mouths are already drooling!

Good luck!
