  8. Passionate About Baking

    Mine would be a bruschetta starter, grilled chicken & pasta, roast baby potatoes, a salad…& a decadent dark chocolate panna cotta to wrap it up. A coffee in the end would be luxurious…& everything with my family around!!

  15. Anonymous

  21. Erin

    My perfect dinner would be where I can have two bites of lots & lots of things! Like a buffet, but better. I could have 2 bites of chicken alfredo, two bites of enchiladas, two bites of steak, two bites of… well you get the point! I'm really indecisive!

  25. Stephanie

    Well, we don’t buy a lot of meat because it’s expensive, so I sometimes end up craving it (want what I can’t have, you know!). My perfect meal is a huge medium-rare steak with lots of flavor and delicious juices, maybe some shrimp on the side, and a salad. Huh, I think I just described Sizzler…

  26. Megan

    My husband and I on the beach by candlelight eating mexican food and then chocolate covered strawberries for dessert. YUM!

    my perfect dinner is about to happen this saturday.
    going to a brazillian bbq place (called tucanos, look it up!) the waiters will bring out huge slabs of meat and slice it right into your plate and enjoy THE BEST all you can eat salad and dessert bar with it.

    $20 for the two of us and all that goodness.
    I’M SUPER EXCITED!

  34. Marcia Milne

    Well ideally since my hubby and I only go on a “real date” alone about every 4 months~ McDonalds would be sufficient~ if it meant I finally talked grandpa into watching the kids so I didn’t have to hear my three munchkins yelling over who gets the last nugget!

  35. Mama Bear

    I can only pick one thing? Hehe.

    Hmm…my grandmother’s homemade varenicki (perogies) with the artery clogging heart attack inducing white sauce (butter and sour cream) and my husband’s BBQ’d farmer sausage (Meat Candy, his friends call it).

    My favorite meal would definitely be a nice italian lasagna with hot garlic bread and a nice salad with yummy croutons. And to finish it off, a nice italian ice! Of course, it’s even better if you can have someone else do the clean-up!!

    Gotta agree with you Jenny! Love Love LOVE fondue and then the chocolate with fruit at the end…YUMM-O. I would have to add a non-fondue seafood chowder soup to it though. πŸ˜‰

  134. Pam

    mine is weird and more of a breakfast, but I do love it for dinner!
    homemade waffles with pureed strawberries and a scoop of vanilla icecream on top!

  135. Becky

    A yummy Strawberry and spinach salad, followed by a yummy marinated pork chop with tasty mashed potatoes. And chocolate lava cake for dessert. That’s it.

  136. Laura

    A huge salad with chicken, avocado and great homemade dressing plus great bread and dessert would be ooey, gooey brownies.

  137. Helene

    What a beautiful giveaway.

    Perfect Dinner would be a buffet of Seafood in an upscale restaurant.

    For dessert a chocolate fondue with all the fruits you can find in the World.

    Happy Valentine Day!

  138. Vause Family

    I agree with you on the fondue! I love all that kind of food! And the best part is the dessert, all that chocolate!

  139. Christina Larson

    OMG I have so many. First thing to comes to my mind is the rolls from Texas Roadhouse, a medium rare filet and a loaded baked potato and for dessert a hot apple crisp a la mode!

  140. DaNelle

    Perfect would be flank steak with side salad of greens, candied walnuts, and vinagerette dressing. Oh, and don’t forget the garlic mashed potatoes.

  141. Laurel Groff

    Something that tastes good but doesnt have any calories. Is that possible? Ok, I’ll stick with fresh shrimp, stir fried with some veggies.

  142. Debbi

    Perfect dinner would be roasted red pepper hummus and homemade garlic pepper tortilla chips. My favorite! Yum! Great giveaway, thanks! Oh – cheesecake for dessert too!

    perfect dinner?

    a family gathering where everyone brings something to the table! my grandma makes the roast turkey, me and my cousins bring cupcakes and deserts, my aunts bring in spaghetti, sushi, chinese char siu pork….
    a whole array of home made / take out food!

    and the superbowl or the world series game on the television πŸ™‚

  144. Rachelle @ "Mommy? I'm Hungry!"

    It’s a toss up of a filet Mignon dinner we had once, or a corned beef dinner with potatoes, carrots and cabbage! YUM, I can’t wait for St. Patrick’s Day! And then some Tiramisu, even if it doesn’t ‘go with’ what I had, lol.

  145. Aaron and Jessica

    Any kind of pasta with yummy, creamy pasta sauce and lots of real imported parmeggiano or pecorino cheese. And of course some kind of chocolate dessert.

  146. Kyle and Melissa

    Italian…meaning the first course would be bread since I eat two loaves to myself while I’m waiting for the actual meal to come out πŸ˜‰

  147. Heather S.

    Homemade lasagna loaded with cheese–along with a big green salad and homemade garlic bread. Dessert would be a slice of decadent chocolate fudge cake with vanilla bean ice cream! YUM!!

  148. Becca

    I love sushi and enchiladas. People may not think they go together, but I am drooling thinking of it. Maybe its the huge amount of carbs thats really my weakness.

  149. ~Amber~

    I am going to have to go with Italian.

    Fettuccine alfredo with blackened chicken and mushrooms. Steamed brococli on the side along with a crisp cool salad and garlic breadsticks. YUM!

  150. Marie

    I’d like a “Healthy” lasagna complete with lots of veggies, low fat cheeses, and whole-wheat pasta. A green salad and some corn.

    To make it perfect, I’d need some kind of chocolate dessert. I’m not picky!

  151. Julie

    last nights dinner was awesome. Shrimp scampi over linguine with homemade french bread. Yummo!
    Great giveaway πŸ™‚

  152. Stephanie

    Chilled Lemonade
    Midwestern Taco Salad Topped with Avocado and Sour Cream

  153. Kyle, Ashley & Gage

    Thai food! Pad Thai, curry, satay, etc…the spicier the better. And anything chocolate for dessert.

  154. Holly and Jay

    My perfect dinner would start with a real Caesar salad, followed by seared tuna over spinach Rockefeller topped with a lobster cream sauce. For dessert, I would like my white chocolate bread pudding with raspberry sauce. Yum yum!

  155. Steph

    My ultimate dinner is good old Fried Chicken, mashed potatoes and fresh off the ear corn, and don’t forget about the buttermilk biscuits. I don’t eat fried chicken very often, so it makes me drool just thinking of it. Great giveaway Jenny! You did an amazing job on the show! You should have won for sure!!!

  156. Valerie(momof3crazykids)

    My favorite dinner would be Filet Mignon and garlic mashed potatoes and green beans, with a side salad. Yum!

  157. Christina

    I would have to start with a tomato and onion salad with fresh mozzarella cheese and a nice Balsamic vineagarette dressing. Then I would have to have a nice soup bowl, fresh from the oven multigrain bread with Chicken and Noodles. Then I would need cheesy potatoes with a bacon wrapped filet with blue cheese and a 7 pepper blend with one of those being a nice sweet and spicy, and asparagus. Then for dessert, now thats the hard part I am a sucker for Cheesecake. I love pumpkin cheesecake that is made from FRESH pumpkin. I also love a good icebox pie. If I was rich I would eat it EVERYDAY!!!!!

  158. The Ball Babies

    Perfect dinner is something noodley with something proteiney and something vegetabley and then something sweet! PReferably chocolate something or other!

  159. MaryBeth

    The perfect dinner would simply have to be anything that I was enjoying with my loving husband. But we really love the Paris Chicken dish that we had on our honeymoon in Vegas, we have recreated it many times at home for special occasions.
