    Thumbs up OrchidTalk Contest

    I was talking to Ron (walingwaling) on Facebook today and he had a few suggestions for some fun contests. One that piqued my interest was the 'Best Recipe of the Month' contest.

    It sounds fun and members from all corners of the globe can participate. The winner will get a special graphic (TBA) posted next to their OrchidTalk Member Name for the following month. Just think about all the delicious food we get to enjoy. I mean, we all gotta eat, right?... ... anyway, here are the rules:

    • 1. Anyone who is a member of the forum can enter by submitting a thread in the NEW Outback Kitchen forum section of OrchidTalk.
    • 2. All entries (individual threads) will be listed in a master poll on August 21 by me.
    • 3. As the admin, I will narrow down the entries to a reasonable number if necessary. (IE: if we have so many entries that no one can remember one from another...)
    • 4. The poll will be public so everyone will see which recipe is winning the contest and so that you can recruit your friends to join the forum and vote for your recipe before the poll closes.
    • 5. After rule 4, please remember that members are allowed only one membership account, so please do not sign up for an additional account to vote. It will disqualify your entries.
    • 6. All different recipes are allowed, so be creative. Beverages, soups, salads, deserts, entrees, etc...
    • 7. The recipe should be your own or one that you prepare.
    • 8. All entries dated today (July 21) through ( Aug 20) CST will count towards the contest.

    PS: Photos will enhance the recipes. If you have a shot of your entry, be sure to add it. (You know we all love photos here... )

    That's about it. Any questions?

    Enjoy!

    Cheers,
    BD

    This sounds fun! Most of my recipes though are from other people or recipe books other than the sundried tomato and olive chicken I already posted, I am not so good at making my own recipes LOL I make a lot of bread though now adays but usually from recipes on the packs of flour, I am sure we can have a lot of fun with this though. Thank you Bruce

    Carrie, I just meant that the recipe should be one that you actually have prepared before. It doesn't need to be completely original. Have fun - no worries!

    Can we enter more than one recipe? And in doing so, can I plug my favorite recipe site/software, which is where I get some of my favorites from?

    Finally, what time do we eat?

    Yes, you can enter more than once. You can also mention your software and/or site (as long as it is not a commercial site). See the FAQs for additional information.
