Every other year, thousands of contestants from all over the United States go head-to-head for a chance to win a $1 million grand prize in the Pillsbury Bake-Off® Contest. The 2004 competition was fierce!
The 100 finalists—95 women and five men—were flown to Hollywood to whip up their culinary creations. After one tasty competition, a winner was chosen: Suzanne Conrad's Oats and Honey Granola Pie! Get the recipe!
With one whiff, Oprah was hooked. "I can tell that this is killer good," she says.
So how will Suzanne spend her winnings? "It's spread out over 20 years, which is really nice. … It's like a salary. I'm getting paid to stay home with my children right now."
