How I became a Pillsbury My Crescent Wow Finalist
This all started early this Summer when I filled out a lengthy application about why I love Pillsbury Crescents, about my family, cooking habits, etc. There were 3600 other people that entered to become the brand ambassador. I was selected to be in the Top 100 within 2 weeks!
I was thrilled and a bit nervous when I had the phone interview. I talked about how I create recipes with crescent rolls at home and how they are always a big hit. Seriously, you can never go wrong when you serve a dish made with Pillsbury Crescent Rolls!
I had to submit 2 of my families favorite recipes that use Pillsbury crescents. I have so many dishes that I make, it was hard to select just 2. It was even harder to write the recipe down from my memory and into a 30 minutes or less time frame! I ran out to Giant Eagle, purchased all the ingredients for about 6 of my favorite recipes, including 12 cans of crescents! You should have seen my kitchen that night! What a mess! lol
I was notified several weeks later that I was in the Top 12! I could not believe it! Now, they wanted me to adjust a couple parts of the recipes, make them take less time to prepare, etc. So, I ran back to Giant Eagle, bought another 8 cans of crescents and re-worked my recipes to make them faster, easier to prepare, and simply delicious! Again, my kitchen was a mess! My husband and kids were taste-testing all of the recipes variations, they were great!
I got a call in July with the fun and exciting news that I am a Pillsbury Crescent Brand Top 4 Finalist!! I was very, very excited but was not allowed to tell anyone until today, Sept 1st, the official start of the contest. Now, it is up to me to get the word out to everyone, nationwide about my recipe and ask for the vote.
Please vote for my recipe at www.MyCrescentWow.com. You must select my picture (curly red head), once my name is check marked, then fill out all of the entry information (name, address, etc), create a password so you can log back in the next time, then hit ENTER. You must enter your information and hit enter or the vote doesn’t process. Thank you so much for each and every time you vote. You may vote every day! Each time you vote, you are putting in an entry into the contest for YOU to Win $5,000! What an incredible opportunity! Thank you!!!
About Cindy Orley
I am a stay-at-home active mom of a 3 year old girl and 5 year old boy. I pour myself into my family, trying to provide the best for them, including an active lifestyle and a balanced diet. We have fun together as a family, exploring the outdoors, playing, and even cooking together. I enjoy blogging about everything parenting related as well as hosting great giveaways to share with others. I also love to organize fun activities for other moms in the Akron, Ohio area to explore our local area attractions and parks.
Since my kids were babies, they have always helped me in the kitchen. They love to measure, pour, stir, and sometimes even chop food with me. Although it sometimes creates a bigger mess than if I had made dinner myself, it is always worth the quality time with my kids and the learning opportunities it gives my kids. We are thrilled that I have made it into the Top 4 of the Pillsbury My Crescent Wow Brand Ambassador Contest!!
