Recipe competition - Page 2

post #31 of 76
Oh boy so does that mean that we start from today??? Cool!!
Thank you GS for your effort in setting up this!

A book for History of Food from Atheneus for the prize. I think Clifford Wright's should be appropriate :)
Good luck to everybody!

A third Prize

Since there are 3 potential winners I'll donate their choice of either 1 Bottle of each of the 3 wines I'm currently drinking or a gift basket of Central Coast of CA goodies or $100.00 to the charity that Panini works w/ in TX. in the winners name. Good luck to all.

What a wonderful idea. I'll send a couple of minature bottles of malt whisky and a tasting glass to the runner-up - if i can do this without getting into complications with customs or whatever. If that's the case, I'll send a book on malt whisky and the tasting glass. If there are three winners I'll send the stuff to whoever CC tells me to (as long as it's not to a Brad in Conneticut ;) )
I am not going to embarass myself by submitting a recipe to the competition but i do promise to cook the recipes and vote.


One day I will learn to check my spelling before submitting a post!!!

GSquared,
Great idea! Sounds a lot of fun.
Personally I agree on the anonymate, not only because we'll be less biased, but also because we'll obviously try to understand WHO's submitting WHAT...that adds more fun to the game:)

P.S. Oh...I'd love to add as a prize a big jar of my MIL's Pesto (maybe the best in the world;) ) but I'm afraid it's too perishable to survive enough to reach the winner :(

I'd like to say thanks and bravo to all those who are making the effort to get this thing going. Forgive me for not offering to be part of the organization and judging etc. But I would much rather compete, besides my organizational skills and time are lacking at the moment. I am also involved in another rather lengthy competition at the moment, the results of which I hope to share in the next month or 3.
Also to all who are donating prizes, that is truly generous of you. Again I feel cheap, but I just can't at this time. Perhaps next one.

Maybe anonymity ...

WOULD be the best way. Otherwise we might have to witness more of these "this is not a suck up to you but," statements from and to people we all revere as masters! :D

It's only sucking up if there's something to be gained, and you ain't getting much out of me.

My memory reminds me of the old joke (yeah yeah I know, the other thread) still...

Meyer was getting very upset as he told the golf pro he had to give up golf because of his eyesight. I just can't see where th ball goes anymore he complained. The pro replied "why don't you get together with Goldsmith, he doesn't play anymore but he has eyes like a hawk. Meyer decides it sounds worth a try. The next week the 2 old men meet at the links and start the game.
Meyer tees up and hits the ball. It's a long arcing shot. Do you see it? Do you see it Goldsmith?!?
Yeah, yeah I see it. Great! Where did it go? Goldsmith shrugged his shoulders and said...."I forgot!:D
That's what I have to offer. A ton of knowledge that I forgot!!!:eek: :D

Did I miss a new thread on this? I guess I'm curious if there have been any new rules/guidelines that should be adhered to or if the recipes should be submitted as they are now. I think I have my wife interested. Thanks.

If it runs like the CL bullutin Board, there won't be much difference. I didn't even see any rules no it, I just jumped in and started posting. The folks who had been on longer filled in the gaps.:)

Can somebody please explain what is holding this up? It seems to me that we were ready to rumble, everybody were fired up, we had a set of rules of sorts and I fail to understand why it should take so long to get started. I confess that I am somewhat peeved and discombobulated.
post #60 of 76
GS,
It is taking a bit of time, but as I mentioned in my last post, in order to do this right it takes some work. There is quite a bit of organizational work that is involved. Also, if we rush in to this and there are a multitude of problems, then it won't be much fun for anyone, will it? That is the point; we should have fun creating the entries and sharing our zeal for food and cooking. Thank you for proposing the idea and seeing it come about.
