As most of you know, we now have a Forum Category specifically for recipes! This is very exciting because now the recipes will be easy to find.

To celebrate this new aspect of our site, we are—- guess what?—having a random draw! From all the recipes posted in our new Recipes Forum, three random winners will be selected on February 28, 2010 to receive a free GT t-shirt!

So get out that recipe book and start posting your favourite recipes.

I will post one recipe as well. Of course I disclaim to get a T-shirt ;). I’m looking forward to see recipes from different parts of the world.

I think this is great but why not start with original recipes, so we don’t just get folks looking on line for the best that they may not have tested, but originals that are tried and true.
Just a thought, Still a great Idea

hard to monitor –
it does say “Favourite recipes” ... so we can only assume they are tried and true.

What I was suggesting is tried and true ORIGINAL, meaning you made them up yourslef not from a recipe book. It just doesn’t seem right somehow to give a prize when a recipe is taken from a cookbook.
I neve saw a recipe contest when contestans get the recipes from a cookbook. That is what I meant.
Jroot you understand what I mean right?

sorry my other post repeated itself, I tried to erase it.

Of course, I understand what you mean. However, when baking or cooking, one usually springboards from something that one has seen or tasted somewhere, and then one tries to embellish upon that idea. Certainly, I support not copying from a cook book, but a springboard from an “idea seed” planted in one’s thought process to come up with something original or an embellishment of a recipe tweeked to “make it better”.

for me, I just want some yummy recipes that use produce from the gardens.
As for the challenge – I think it is just to acknowledge our new forum.

I agree that someone can just copy the recipe, but it’s hard to find out which one is it. I mean, I can add rule that only recipes with photos can win, but you can download lot of photos of dishes from the internet. On the other side, I think that all of us – actual members won’t just copy the Recipes form cookbook. Personally, I posted recipe which I tested several times.

MsDebbie, I am with you there, I want some nice garden recipes.
The idea behind the Original recipes is; you will get recipes that are not found (Normally) on the internet.
I just thought it would be nice to see the ingenius concoctions our friends in here can come up with.
I love the idea and I hope this site is kept busy, being a vegetarian you can understand how much veggies are to me. I love to throw veggies together and see what happens, I often bring my dishes to church for our dinner night and I get opinions there. Noone ever knows who made what and you can get some honest opinions.
Are these recipes going to be totally vegetarian or are we to have meat and cheese in them. That is another consideration.

I love my vegetables, and want at least 2/3 of my plate to be vegetables, – green, white, and/or yellow. However, I also believe that some meat and/or fish is good for me, as long as I take care not to have too much fat.

That being said, I hope this forum does not become exclusive. Please post what works well for you. Enough said.
