The lovely Rebekah asked if I would be interested in hosting this week’s BSI challenge – my response? Heck yes!!
BSI stands for Blogger Secret Ingredient. Each week a new host picks an ingredient andanyone (food blogger or not) can submit a recipe. The contests starts on a Monday, and recipes need to be submitted by Sunday night of that week. Then the next day the host chooses a winner and picks someone to host next weeks contest.
It is up to each weeks host to deem what the prize will be.
1. i pick an ingredient, preferably one that is in season and readily available and not too expensive;
2. i link back to all the other previous weekly hosts;
3. i review all your lovely recipe submissions by Sunday night (june 27th, 2010);
4. i pick a recipe that is my favorite; and
5. i’ll post the winner Monday morning and send the winner a token prize of my choosing.
6. you do not have to have a food blog to particpate
7. you do not have to submit a photograph
8. if you don’t have a blog, you can submit your recipe to me, and i will post your recipe for you!

So, what did I choose as my secret ingredient?! After much deliberation – I finally settled on….
I love bulgur – and it seems like every time I post a meal with it, there are people mentioning they need to try it. Here’s your excuse!!
So – get me all those yummy bulgur creations via e-mail [to the right, in the side bar] before Sunday at midnight, and I’ll have the winner posted on Monday!

Mind-reader, you. 🙂

Love the new look of your blog. Do you mean June 28th mon for the due date?
Uh oh, I guess I have to make something my husband can’t eat, but I can’t resist this!
I’m so excited that you’re hosting this week’s BSI! Bulgur wheat is fantastic, but unfortunately, I don’t usually think of cooking with it. This week I will be pretty busy, but I can’t help but at least name my favorite created bulgur recipe: bulgur bruschetta, complete with fresh basil! Yumm!
Have a lovely day!
glad to see this one up!!!
ps – change the due date, sweets 🙂
Cool idea. I bet it would work well in lots of baked goods recipes.
Lovely! I just picked up a pound of Bulgar wheat for a recipe I’m making at the end of this week. I will send it in!
