Ingredient Challenge Monday – Announcing the First Ingredient and Additional Challenger!

Sharing is caring!

And the first ingredient is……



I love them!  If you missed my last post, which was Pomegranate Pico de Gallo, then go see it.  The whole batch I made was gone in one afternoon; we scooped it up with sea salt pita chips, cinnamon and sugar pita chips, Fritos, and even put it on our turkey burgers that we made for dinner that night.  The stuff is good.

So, that’s the one ingredient we are going to be using to create Monday’s challenge recipe.  Also, we have a new blogger that decided to join us (yay!), Marci Gilbert at www.marcigilbert.com will be our third challenger.  Anyone else is welcome – just let one of us know! 

Please bookmark our sites so you can keep up with the challenge recipe results and ingredients.  Remember, we want feedback from our readers! It’s not meant to be a real competition, but a fun way to challenge eachother’s creativity. 

Happy Cooking!
