Recipe Throw-Down!

Recipe Throw-Down!
What is a Recipe Throw-down?

It’s quite simple. Once a month we will pick one of the recipes posted here on the board for trial.

If you participate you will have to commit to making said recipe TWICE.

The FIRST time you will make the recipe AS WRITTEN.
The only exceptions to this are if you are allergic to any of the ingrediance, (and still want to try the recipe) or if you are Vegan or Vegetarian, then substitutions are allowed.
Also if the recipe will make far more portions that you can eat in an acceptable time, then you can size the recipe down.

The SECOND time you make the recipe you will MAKE IT YOUR OWN.
Make changes, substutions, go ahead and guild the lilly!
Change it in any way that will (in your opinion) improve it, but write it down and share it here.

What do you think? Are you in?

You gotta take care of your life."

I will be happy to act as judge for said events...

Most of us are so caught up in life that we forget to live it.

Smile let the fun begin.
Side note thought-- what if your recipe is the one that is picked as the original poster, should you sit out and let the others compete?

I don't see why you'd have to sit out, you'll just be able to skip the first part since you know what the original recipe tastes like.
And I think there's always room for improvement in a recipe if you look close enough...Big Grin

110 views and only the 3 of us are going to play?
Really? Really? Huh
All right you have one more chance to sound off, and then we'll choose a recipe Monday...

It's Thanksgiving week...I don't have time to do a throwdown!
Maybe I'll join in the next one.

I gave the concept some serious thought, but I have to bow out. I never go after anything half arsed...full commitment or nothing. And I need, for my own mental well being, to put some serious miles in this winter. If it isn't gale force outside...I'll be on a motorcycle. I just won't have the time to seriously commit, and if there's one thing I can't stand it's a person who says they're in and then flakes out.

Based on your BnG contributions I have a lot of respect for your cooking abilities, and the last thing I'd want to do is disapppoint by saying I'm in then falling short...

To ask why we cook is to ask why the leaves fall...

Good point Nettie! Does everyone want to wait till Nov 25th to start?
And for a timeline, do we want to do a 2 week window?
Meaning you have 2 weeks from the start date to make the original recipe and your modifications?

Aww Sunset, you're very kind! Blush

I don't want this to get too serious, its supposed to be fun too!
And besides, if we pick a recipe that somebody SERIOUSLY would never consider making, I don't want to force someone to make it just because they said they'd join not knowing which recipe we were making...Big Grin
