"What's for dinner?" the question that is asked almost every day in our house by both the kids and myself. We all crave variety when we sit down with our families at the end of the day to enjoy a meal but often we are so tired the idea of cooking a fabulous meal and then the messy clean up gets the best of us and we avoid giving ourselves more work than we have already endured in our day.

P&G teamed up with Food Network Canada's Michael Smith - host of Chef Michael's Kitchen to challenge us to take the Ultimate Kitchen Challenge! The challenge was to choose a favourite meal, cook it and clean up the mess using Cascade Platinum Pacs sharing our experience with all of you here on the blog!




I like cooking, learning how to make new things and trying different recipes. Do they always turn out? No, I'm not a chef nor do I really have any experience as far as the culinary arts are concerned but I can still cook a nutritious meal for my family.

Michael Smith makes gourmet cooking easy with this cook book. It has a recipe for just about every type of meal from pork to beef, chicken, seafood, desserts and more. I like how Michael explains things in a simple way and makes the recipes (as I like to call them) "user friendly" and encourages you to use your imagination and give his recipes a twist with your own slight adjustments.

Usually cooking adventures and I don't mix very well so we kept it simple with a pasta dinner and cleaned up our mess with the one and only Dawn. I have been a firm believer in Dawn as my #1 choice when it comes to dish washing detergent. It gets the job done the first time. For those who use a dish washer, Cascade Platinum Pacs contain the same cleaning enzymes as Dawn to get the job done so you can enjoy your dinner and not worry about the dishes.



Check out the awesome giveaway below for your chance to win Michael Smith's cook book (along with some P&G goodies) and try out some of his great recipe's for yourself!
