A Special Recipe from the Pillsbury Bake-Off® Winner

(KUTV) Salt Lake City - Memories created with family and friends in the kitchen can be moving, powerful, and create lasting bonds. Creating a favorite dish with loved ones then gathering and sharing it together is a tradition that has stood the test of time. These dishes often inspire new recipes that can become tradition for years and generations to come.

Amy Nelson, the 48th Pillsbury Bake-Off® Contest Grand Prize Winner, joined Kari on Fresh Living today to share the flavorful tradition that inspired her winning recipe for Bejeweled Cranberry-Orange Rolls, and how making these rolls instantly transports her to a place of familiar and immediate happiness.

About Amy Nelson:

Amy lives with her husband and 12-year old son, Asa, on a 20-acre farm in the Appalachian mountain area. The closest metro area is over 100 miles away! When she’s not working as a nurse, or tending to the farm animals, Amy can be found in the kitchen. Her mother was an avid home cook, and Amy grew up sitting on the counter, learning her tips and tricks. Amy now cooks for her family, and her son has started to get into baking. When he’s finished with his home schooling, the two love to experiment in the kitchen and put creative twists on baking recipes.
