Cook ingredients that you are used to cooking by other techniques, such as fish, chicken, or hamburgers. In other words be comfortable with the ingredients you are using.

October He Said/She Said Contest

If you have been following this blog you will know for 6 weeks ending August 30, 2009 my husband and I were running a He Said/She Said contest that resulted in 12 different recipes from Better Homes and Gardens® New Grilling Book. The winning recipes by popular vote were:

Texas style barbecued chickenmaple sauced chicken

He Said She Said

We are going to be doing a different He Said/She Said contest for the month of October. I think you are really going to enjoy this one! This contest is not going to be quite as involved but I think it is going to be very interesting. The focus of this contest will be investigating new ingredients. The rules are: Choose 1 ingredient you have not cooked with before. The ingredient can be anything of your choosing providing you have not used it before in any dish you have prepared. Create two dishes using the ingredient. Pictures and recipes will be posted throughout October. The contest ends October 31, 2009. Voting for the best recipe will begin on November 1, 2009 and run for 1 week.

I will be following with great interest
