Local Resident Tracey Kukelhan Receives $1,000 Award
Kansas City, Mo. – Borden Cheese and ALL YOU are pleased to announce Tracey Kukelhan of Decatur, Indiana, as the grand prize winner of the third annual Borden Cheese signature recipe contest. Kukelhan won against 1,325 other entries with her recipe Spicy Salsa Potatoes, which utilized Borden’s Pepper Jack Singles Sensations and Four Cheese Mexican Blend.
“I wanted to create something different than just regular cheesy potato casserole, so I thought I would try Borden’s Pepper Jack Singles Sensations and Four Cheese Mexican Blend to see what I could come up with,” Kukelhan said. “My family loved the different spicy tastes in the casserole; the Pepper Jack kicked it up a notch!”
Teresa Traxler of Simpsonville, South Carolina, was the other recipient of the grand prize, winning with her Apple Cheddar Nut Bread recipe. Both winning recipes will be featured in the November issue of ALL YOU, on sale October 19 nationwide at Walmart stores.
