(Thank you to Jenn for passing hosting duties along to me!)
Get your thinking caps on because this week’s secret ingredient is…
With the holiday season in full-swing, I figured this spice would be a good selection since it’s used in both sweet and savory holiday (and non-holiday) dishes.
In case you’re not familiar with BSI here are the details:
- The host picks an ingredient, preferably one that is in season, readily available, and not too expensive.
- The host links back to all the other previous weekly hosts.
- Participants create a unique recipe using the BSI and e-mail the host with their recipes.
- You do not have to have a food blog to participate, and you do not have to submit a photograph (although it is preferred).
- If you don’t have a blog, you can submit your recipe to the host, and she will post your recipe for you on her blog.
- The host reviews the recipe submissions by Sunday night of each week.
- The hosts pick a recipe that is her favorite.
- The host posts the winner Monday morning and sends the winner a token prize of her choosing.
