Jen: "prime time deliverance" seared broccolini on top of penne & vegetables in an almond alfredo sauce

Allie: "corn star parking" creamed corn, saltine cracker, & rice milk casserole
Ash: "mouse" chilled fruit soup with dried apricots, raisins, canned peaches, & cherries with winter spices
Also in attendance was Jeff, who decided not to enter as no one in his family is an especially good cook except himself.
