      The deadline to enter the 2013 Cook of the Week Challenge is midnight Wednesday.

 
 

A flurry of applications arrived over the weekend for our third annual Cook of the Week Challenge, but if you want to be part of the fun there's still time. Cooks have until midnight Wednesday to fill out an application and submit a recipe to be considered for the competition.

The contest challenges 16 home cooks to come up with weeknight-friendly recipes using mystery ingredients plus common pantry items. Past mystery baskets have included ground turkey, figs, walnuts and barbecue sauce.
