Foodie Thoughts

| 1/22/2009 4:40:32 PM

Talking food doesn’t take much effort around the GRIT office. Food days and special occasions come fairly frequently in these parts, and, of course, no one protests. We’ve even had cookoffs that encompassed a number of cooks and tasters from every department in the building. Our Great Potato Salad Debate comes to mind.

Join the Great Mac 'n' Cheese Debate!Guess what? We’re in the process of organizing a mac ‘n’ cheese cookoff to rival the potato salad effort. As you know, we published the winning recipes in GRIT’s January/February issue’s Recipe Box, and we’ll do the same with the mac ‘n’ cheese entries. So be on the lookout.

In one of my previous posts, Recipe Box Secrets, I talked about how we organize Recipe Box. It seems like a good idea to let you in on some of the recipes we receive, too. Enjoy, and let me know what you think of the recipes for vinegar pie and hamburger gravy.

Without further ado, recipes!


Winter Pie

Fiona, welcome to the family! And thank you for having the courage to try the Vinegar Pie recipe! I am so impressed! Loved your blog post about the experience (great photos too!) Looks like I was waaaay off on my assumption about the pie's taste! LOL
