Your chance to win $100!

No new recipe today, sorry! Things have been a little crazier than expected at work this week and I’ve been too exhausted to cook – never mind write! I do have one recipe that I made recently that I’m really excited about posting though, so I’ll try to get that up tomorrow. :)

Anyway, I’m sure you’re wondering how you can win $100, right? It’s easy! A few food bloggers are working with Springpad to host “Springsgiving.” We were each asked to submit a Thanksgiving menu. There’s a lot of great recipes that have been submitted – and you get to “vote” on your favorites by springing them! Spring a recipe, and you’ll be entered in a drawing for a $100 American Express gift card!

What are you waiting for? Get Springing!

Note: In order to spring recipes you will need to create an account. But as I’ve said before its a really cool site and is a great way to keep track of and organize recipes that you find on various blogs. I can’t make any promises as to what they’ll do in the future, but based on past performance I have no hesitations in recommending registering with them. No spam at all!

Also, since I feel guilty not disclosing this, the participating blogger that receives the most “Springs” for their menu items will receive $500.

Maple-Laced Butternut Squash Soup is a great Fall appetizer

Potato and Parsnip Latkes make a great, unexpected Thanksgiving side dish!
If you’re only cooking for a few people, consider an alternate to turkey. May I suggest duck breast?


  1. That soup is gorgeous! On a cold, blustery day like today…it would be perfect for lunch!

  2. thanks! unfortunately that’s just a stock photo – I posted that recipe forever ago, before i cared about having pictures on the blog. But the soup really is delicious – it’s one of my favorites. I’ll probably make it again soon, and I’ll try to remember to take a pic!

  3. oh love this site I also joined it as well great food as ever hope work slows a wee bit for you

  4. Ok, ok, I will join – it’s been on my list of things to do anyways…

  5. How nice you suggested duck breast : ) Happy Thanksgiving !
