Anyway, on to business! :D
As you know, I was waiting in anticipation for the submissions and I was not disappointed!
Here was the line-up:
Mara at What's For Dinner: Basil Chavrie-Stuffed Burgers
Sweetie Pie at Just Sweet Enough: Sunny Basil Orange Salad
Beadie at What I Ate Yesterday: Spinach and Mushroom Stuffed Shells
Laura at Hey What's For Dinner Mom: Pesto-Glazed Vegetables over Feta Infused Polenta
Brandi at BranAppetit: Basil and Strawberry Scones
You guys did a great job with your recipes and I cannot wait to try them all. It was very hard for me to choose, so I enlisted some outside help (husband, a couple coworkers, a couple friends).
Everyone had at least a couple favorites, but in the end there was one clear winner.
And yes, I'm dragging this out on purpose!
Who is the winner?
Drumroll . . .
BRANDI!! Brandi's entry of Basil and Strawberry Scones definitely drew everyone's attention because of the intriguing and creative combination of ingredients.
Congratulations! Email me when you get a chance so we can get details hammered out.
I'm not done yet! I still have to pass on the BSI torch!
Please join me in congratulating Laura at Hey What's For Dinner Mom. Laura's blog is a pleasant new discovery for me and I love her focus on healthy but delicious foods. I'm excited to see what she picks for the next BSI contest!
Congrats again, Brandi and Laura!!
