And the winner is…

This post of course refers to my contest from a couple of weeks ago: Blueberries on The Ceiling.  I asked you all to tell the stories of your most hilarious kitchen mishaps, and you delivered!  It was really hard to pick just one winner, so I didn’t!  I picked two.  

Hold your breath… the winners are ………………………………………………………………………………..

Jackie from Always a Northerner and Ronica from Tales of a Kansas Girl!!

Both of these stories were amazing.  Jackie wrote about a little bit of a misundersanding involving garlic that (I like to think) may have been the experience that sparked her relationship with the man who is now her fiance.  Ronica also wrote about a misunderstanding… in which she accidentaly used 3/4 of a CUP of baking soda in a cookie recipe!! (disclaimer: she was just a kid!)

So… I’ll be sending both of you a copy of one of my favorite food related books: Heat: An Amateur’s Adventures as Kitchen Slave, Line Cook, Pasta-Maker, and Apprentice to a Dante-Quoting Butcher in Tuscany (whew!)  by Bill Buford.



And here’s the roundup:
