If you’re a Food Network watcher you’ve seen shows like Iron Chef where the chefs are given a secret ingredient or ingredients that they must use in their recipes. I love that part of these shows and while in the shower tonight (that’s where I have my best ideas – it’s the only quiet time I get) I realized how fun that would be to implement into a blog. I see it as a way to challenge myself, my cooking and my creativity. So how about it? This is what I have in mind:
Each week (we’ll say Sunday) the secret ingredient will be randomly chosen from the comments on the week before’s post. I’m thinking a Facebook group may be the best bet for announcing the week’s ingredient, linky codes and feedback. You can join the group here.
We’ll create our own recipes (adapting from another is acceptable – as long as you make it yours) and post it by Friday.
There will be a weekly linky for all participating blogs to share their creations.
Each week a recipe from the week before will be featured for it’s awesomeness.
Comment and let us know what ingredient you’d like to see for the first challenge.
Check out the recipes linked up to find new recipes to try.
I have tons of ideas running around in my head and I’m sure some of them don’t make sense right now, but I’d love your opinions! Would also love your suggestions for the first weeks challenge – what ingredient(s) would you love to see a recipe for?
Be as creative/bold/traditional as you want – no suggestion is a bad suggestion (unless it’s illegal – let’s keep it legal 🙂 )
