No need to be intimidated, cooks.
"They make it quite often," said Hammer, who was quickly persuaded to borrow the pair's winning recipe. But she made a couple of last-minute changes.
"My son said he didn't use the spinach tortillas (in the lasagna) and it makes a huge difference."
There's also the fact that "jalapeno peppers taste different out of a garden!"
Both judges and members of the audience, who got to taste samples, were impressed.
The celebrity judges awarded Hammer's lasagna first place. The dish also received a third place "Audience Choice" award.
All dishes were judged on taste, creativity and appearance. The lasagna, with its colorful red, yellow and green toppings, was a winner in all three areas.
Hammer loves the recipe herself because it's "a 20-minute, everything on top of the stove, quick to make" version of lasagna.
Ironically, in view of her brand-new cooking contest award, she said her husband of four years "usually does the cooking in our family."
For her part, Hammer collects cookbooks obsessively.
"I have a million!"
She's well known locally as a member of the Dunn's Kiddie Care staff, where she is in her 27th year.
