    both have equal chances, i weight it by how much care was taken to create it (whether it's glamorous OR simple) - and if it looks yummy. also remember the $20 side contest is random and it's possible to win both akorns and the money. i'm thinking of having some bonus RNG for this time as well, with extra bonus gift codes or actual prizes that i'll put all the names in a bowl (including past entries that didn't win) and just pick one to win, as a thank you for entering the contest and taking the time to follow the rules, etc. when we get enough participants, i will separate the savory from the sweet and have two different sets of prizes, but that's in the future~


    also, please note...as you can see by the second post i made in the thread, even sandwiches and very very simple recipes can win as long as they are handmade and delicious! (well, clearly, i'm not winning my own contest, i just wanted to show that a sandwich is also an entry bc the entries we've seen can be very intimidating!)

  • You need:


    2 potato
    1/2 sweet potato
    1/2 zucchini
    1 onion
    2 eggs
    50ml milk
    50g grated cheese
    Salt
    Peper
    dried herbs
    Oil


    1) Peel and than cut the onion and the vegetables into small pieces
    2) Put a bit oil in a frying pan and steam the onions till they get slightly brown and crispy
    3) Cook the vegetables in water till the are halfway cooked
    4) Mix 2 eggs with the milk, salt, peper and the dryed herbs
    5) Now put the vegetables into the frying pan and pour the egg over it
    6) If the egg is halfway cooked take the grated cheese and put it on top than close the frying pan with a lid and let it cook untill the cheese is melted

  • this looks delicious!


    please don't forget about the rule being that it must be a handwritten note~

  • I made a Spinach, Barley, Potato and Bacon Soup. Couldn't find Barley so used Farro as a substitute. Tasted good but didn't look as the Barley version. Farro clouded the broth and couldn't see the ingredients in the finished Soup. Seeing what you were eating was half the fun.

    Farro does have same texture and taste of a Barley. Farro absorbs more fluid than Barley.

    A lesson in cooking. But now to make something else for the contest.

  • How do they make the yellowish soft tortilla in your neighborhood? Do they add cornmeal in wheat dough?


    I will be able to make good tacos here on classic soft / hard shell tortilla that are hard to find from those factory ready made here .. i think good tortilla is supposed to be like naan bread that swelled up on the surface ,air inside and fluffy after baking on flat top, chewy , charred, wheaty / corn aroma. If that works then Asian version taco on its way..

    :happyr:

  • I used store bought Taco Shells. Directions say to heat them a few minutes.

    That is impressive making Taco Shells from flat Tortillas. Online videos show frying or baking them. The Fried ones look awesome. Baked ones look easy to make. I haven't tried making Taco Shells. Store bought pre-made Taco shells look like their baked. They Crunch and break up easy. There is a Fast Food that offers Tacos with shells that could break teeth. Xd


    Can use Corn Chips with ingredient spread over them. Taco-Nacho :dancer:

  • I did not forget I will be uploading mine in the next week once I can hopefully go grocery shopping

  • My rankings

    1st place

    2yr - Korean seafood scallion pancake

    haesoovoiceship - Babka + Flan patissier

    chounim - Biscoff Cheesecake

    chounim - Amandine


    2nd place

    chounim - Pesto Pasta

    2yr - Ginger soy Chicken

    JiminieKookie - Potato quiche


    Looks like I could make with some success.

    JiminieKookie - Potato quiche

    2yr - Ginger soy Chicken


    My Chicken may be worthy for instructional purposes. But it is very basic not a contender. The Peanut Butter Cookie is a contender.

  • I'm going to extend the contest for one more month since there aren't as many entries this time! I am going to up the akorns prize to make up for it~
