Who wants to be a BSI winner??

I do apologize for the lack of pics lately -- I've been posting from work, so no camera here.

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!!
