Welcome to the first every CEK's 2012 Home Grown Chef Contest!
A few months ago, I challenged my readers to submit their favorite recipes and what a great response I had! It is up to each recipe contributor to engage their friends/family/etc to view their recipe on this blog post and the 5 most popular recipes (determined by the number of page views it receives) will be added to a poll for everyone to vote on. (For complete rules of the contest click HERE.) Good luck!
Lily Zhou from Goleta, CA
My name is Lily, I live in Goleta with my husband, my son (3.5 years), and my daughter (18 months). I am a trained chemist although right now I am a stay at home mom. Cooking and eating is a hobby for me. There are not many interesting restaurants in the Goleta area, so most of the time I take advantage of the local farmer's market and cook at home. I don't have a blog, but I post at least once a month on yelp.
