henderson.jpgRoseville home cook Evelyn Henderson's odds at winning $1 million just jumped to one in four.

Henderson won the "Entertaining Appetizers" category of the Pillsbury Bake-off today in Orlando, Fla., contest officials announced this evening.

Henderson's salmon pecan-crusted tartlets beat out 19 other entries for the category and nabbed her a $5,000 cash prize, a new GE Profile(tm) Induction Free-Standing Range and a shot at the $1 million grand prize.

Henderson and the winners of the "Breakfast & Brunches," "Dinner Made Easy" and "Sweet Treats" categories are being flown tonight to Chicago, where for the first time in the contest's 60-year history, the grand prize winner will be announced live on "The Oprah Winfrey Show."

Check tomorrow's Sacramento Bee for continued coverage of Henderson's win.
