Call for Recipes

I've decided to do another dinner challenge in February, this time from favorite recipes, mine and yours. So, send me your recipes! Here are the deets:
  • Five nights of every week in February I will cook dinner for my family, take pictures of each dinner and blog about it. The recipes used can be new to us, either from you or my new cookbooks (birthday gifts), or from our collection, but I will cook at least two new recipes each week (more if I get enough recipes from you-*update: I already have enough to do 3 new recipes a week!*).
  • You may submit as many recipes as you wish, but they must be dinner recipes, and their ingredients must be readily available in my relatively small town. I will include recipes or links to recipes in each blog post. I promise to follow the directions as you give them in the recipe. I start cooking February 1, so get them to me with enough time to shop before I cook.
  • I will give credit to you in my blog post, I'll even link to your blog or site if you ask. You may link away if you so choose.
  • Our family will rate each recipe by the thumb system: Thumbs up, thumbs medium, or thumbs down. (Still deciding whether or not I'll publish that on the blog for each recipe--let me know if you don't want me to rate your recipe publicly.) The top three dinner submissions will receive a prize! (Not sure yet what it will be, but I'll come up with something great, at least something real this time! I'll pick something I would want.)

Sound like fun? Well, it does to me, we'll see how much of a cooking mood you all are in . . . . Send your recipes to rachel at ellishome dot org. I can hardly wait to see what's been cooking at your house!

I just posted a ton of recipes on my blog yesterday. Hope you like Mexican food!

How nice to have had Pete and Colleen for a visit--it's been FOREVER since I've seen those guys!

Oh just you wait! I've got all sorts of recipes coming your way. I think that you should be able to get all the ingredients in your little town of St George. If not, don't make them! No biggie! I would love to know what your family thinks, and have no problem if you, or your family, don't like what I like (so post it on your blog, I can take it!). I am sending about 4 emails with 2-3 recipes a piece. They are categorized according to region! :) I'm excited to see what you make!

Ok seriously, how are you so thin? You are an amazing cook, and unfortunately, I have no recipes fit to share here (although I make the EXACT same sticky bun recipe for Christmas!). I look forward to following your adventures in cooking!
