Sorry to keep you all in such suspense!  We have reviewed the scores and are ready to announce the winners of our Veggie Tasting Party!!!!

For those just joining us, back in April we were asked by a reader, ““Would you write a series about vegetables? A ‘How to cook them so people will eat them’ type of series.”  

Rather than just answering with our families’ recipes, we put the question to all of you!  Throughout the month of April y’all submitted your very own, family-tested-and-loved, favorite veg forward recipes.  Our agreement was that we would cook them all, have our husbands, children, and friends taste and judge in a blind taste-test.  You were so generous with your culinary delights that we had one day, in fact, just a few hours, actually, to cook 26 veggie recipes!  Everything from Brussels Sprouts to Turnips!  From Tomatoes to Carrots!  From Kale to Okra!  Add a few bottles of lovely wine and a some locally brewed beer and we had a true foodie party on our hands!

It took two tables to hold everything!

But what fun!  You can see more pictures of the food and mayhem here: Food Revolution Day Tasting Party!

From the 26 recipes we have chosen the 10 that were rated the yummiest by our panel of critics.  (And let me tell you, you don’t know a food critic until you’ve met our children.  Ever heard a child say, “This would be perfect it was baked off, instead of steamed and if you added a bit of acid, like maybe a balsamic reduction.”)  These 10 will be included in a Veggie Cookbook to be released next month!  Along with those 10 we are going to add 10 Provision Room fool-proof favorites, for a Veggie Cookbook for real people! You’re gonna love it!
