I didn't win but I was picked as the host for the BSI contest this week, that's almost as fun as winning!!! Like I said I didn't win but this fabulous recipe did. Basil strawberry scones? Who would have thought to put basil in scones? They look so pretty and I really like the fact that they are made with whole wheat flour. I can't wait to try them! Great recipe Brandi, way to go!
So now it's up to me to choose an ingredient. I have been wracking my brain on this one, I want it to be something seasonal, healthy and delicious plus it can't have been used before. I went to Mara's site to look at previous ingredients and thought I would compile a list here for future hosts to build on. I may or may not get back to post links to each blog, 3 boys do require some taming you know.
Previous BSI Ingredients
That's quite a list hunh? So without further adieu this weeks BSI is:
Why? Well they have not been done and I am finding them in the stores in Alaska which means that they are pretty much available everywhere. They are also my favorite harbinger of spring, I mean after a long bananas, apples and oranges winter aren't we all glad to see strawberries in the store, reminding us that summer really is coming and soon the snow (if you are lucky enough to have it!) will be gone. The strawberries can be fresh, frozen or dried. So hop to it ladies, you have one week to submit your entry using strawberries. The entry deadline is Sunday March 15 11:59 pm. I will be including all recipe submissions and links on this post so be sure to come by often to check out the competition. You can email me any recipe links or leave them as a comment here!!
Oh and thanks Spiceaholic for the chance to host the contest, I am so excited! Oops also forgot to mention the prize, (the prize!! how could I forget to mention the prize??) well ladies it's going to be a surprise. I'm having so much fun, thanks for letting me play.
