The WINNER of Fresh Pride’s Pumpkin Recipe Contest is Linda Hardin. It had been a close race between the other two finalists’ recipes (No Fuss Pumpkin Pie and Easy to Make Pumpkin Sauce), until Pumpkin and Apple Casserole recipe went LIVE on Friday, gathering the most hits. For more information about all three recipes, check out the links provided at the bottom of this article.
Linda is a recent retiree, who has just gotten back into baking and cooking. Linda looks forward to receiving and spending her $50.00 gift card at Fresh Pride (Fresh Pride on 8506 Chesapeake Blvd. in Norfolk, Virginia)
Her winning recipe, “Pumpkin and Apple Casserole,” contains three of her favorite foods, Granny Smith apples, pumpkin and pecans. Linda enjoys making her winning casserole for her family. She especially enjoys Sammy Blount’s display of seasonal fruit at Fresh Pride on 8506 Chesapeake Blvd. (Sammy Blount is Fresh Pride’s produce manager, who is widely known for providing a quality and artful display of fruits and vegetables.) That’s where Linda goes to buy her Granny Smith apples for her now-famous winning recipe.
