ATLANTA, July 8, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- You have less than 100 days to enjoy summer once it starts. And while no one can extend the season, the Dixie® Savor Summer Flavor campaign makes the special memories made over meals linger longer – especially when family gatherings feature attractive tables set with Dixie Ultra® tableware, paper plates strong enough for even their heaviest, messiest meals.

One way to savor summer is through the partnership Dixie created with Food Network celebrity chef Claire Robinson, a longtime Dixie® fan. She can inspire your next family outing with recipes like Chicken Pozole or Fried Pickles n' Pork. Check out tips for summer moments at

And the only thing better than enjoying such delicious ideas is meeting the chef in person. You have a chance to jet off to New York City to meet Robinson when you create a board on Pinterest with the name "Dixie Savor Summer Sweeps." Savor these possibilities:

  • The grand prize includes a three-day, two-night standard accommodation in New York City, two roundtrip coach airfares, ground transportation and $250 spending money.
  • First prize includes a one year supply of Dixie® paper products and second prize includes a Claire Robinson-autographed cookbook.
  • The Dixie® Savor Summer Flavor Sweepstakes entry is live from now until Sept. 8. Dixie® Savor Summer Flavor Sweepstakes winners will be announced on Sept. 10 and contacted directly by Dixie®. Learn more when you follow Dixie® on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest.

"Summer makes getting together so much fun – and it's even better with Dixie Ultra® plates and bowls, because they are strong, beautifully designed and make cleaning up a breeze," Robinson said.

Educated at the French Culinary Institute, Robinson combines her love of food and teaching in her Food Network show, "5 Ingredient Fix," which features delicious, eclectic recipes made with five ingredients or fewer.

"The best dishes," she said, "feature carefully selected summer ingredients with distinct flavors cooked in a straightforward style."
