    (ST. GEORGE, Utah) - Vincy Seegmiller Stringham, a local resident of St. George, Utah, was recently named one of 100 finalists in the freshly redesigned 46th Pillsbury Bake-off Contest. Mrs. Stringham will compete for $1 million in dough. She is only contestant from Utah.

    Initially there were 60 finalists in each category and recipes went online for two weeks. In each category, 33 were selected who had the highest number of online votes. Mrs. Stringham was selected as a finalist in the Quick Rise & Shine Breakfast category for her recipe “Potato and Ham Mini Frittatas.”

    100 finalists will compete at the Bake-Off Contest finals November 10-12, 2013, at the Aria Resort & Casino in Las Vegas. Recipes will be prepared and judged by a judging panel. The top prize is $1 million plus $10,000 in GE applicances, 2nd place is $10,000 and $3,000 in GE appliances and 3rd place is $5,000 and $2,000 in GE appliances. After the contest a recipe book is published with the 100 finalist recipes and sold nation wide.

    The Pillsbury Bake-Off Contest is one of the most iconic competitions in the United States. It originated in 1949, with the first competition at the Waldorf Astoria in New York City. New this year, to encourage simpler, original recipes, submissions, including Mrs. Stringham's, were limited to seven or fewer ingredients and must take 30 minutes or less to prepare, not including baking or cooling time.
