This week, we’re making comfort food.
This week’s challenge is the Girls Who Eat Their Feelings Challenge. When you work on your entry, keep in mind…
- I really want to hear the story behind your comfort food. You can make a grown-up grilled cheese because it reminds you of what your dad made when you stayed home sick from school…or you can make healthy chocolate chip cookies because you had to start making them a little healthier after your mom’s original recipe led to a massive weight gain in college. You can use an old family recipe or you can use a new recipe that still serves as comfort food for you. No matter what you choose, I want you to tell me the story of why you chose this recipe. For example, you could write an entry about how when you get dumped, you reach for salty carbs like French fries. (What I would do for my entry.)
- You must give your recipe a creative and relevant title. Like “My Boyfriend Broke Up With Me and All I Got Was This Lousy STD Rosemary and Truffle French Fries.” (What I would cook for my entry but not actually what I’d title it because that didn’t actually happen to me — surprisingly, given the quality of some of the guys I’ve loved and lost.)
Entries will be judged based on deliciousness, story, and title!
If you haven’t entered yet or you missed last week, no worries — you can jump in now. And you don’t have to have a blog to enter!
- Include a picture of your recipe
- Include the recipe
- E-mail me your entry!
- E-mail it to me by 11:59 PM EST on Sunday, Nov. 7th.
- If you’re a blogger, you can just send me the link to your entry — no need to paste it or send pics separately.
And this week’s winner will receive…a year-long subscription to Cooking Light Magazine! Seriously, I love CL and the healthified recipes I find there every month are what helps me eat my feelings in a less ridiculous way.
I can’t wait to see what you guys come up with. Have fun!
