Shiitake Okonomiyaki: Please vote for me!

Posted on September 15, 2010

UPDATE: I won this competition! Thanks so much to everyone who voted for me, I really appreciate it.

I created this yummy recipe for the Australian Mushroom Growers Association for a fun little competition called the Mushroom Masters Tournament.

The competition pits food bloggers from America, Canada and Australia against each other to see who can come up with the best recipe using a particular mushroom. It’s being held on the popular food-porn site Tastespotting.

I got picked for the shiitake mushroom battle and made this delicious Shiitake Mushroom Okonimiyaki w/ Shiitake Salt.

Please, my fabulous readers, help me (and Australia!) to win the shiitake battle. CLICK HERE to VOTE for me now. Simply scroll to the bottom of the post, select the circle next to my name and click vote.

It’s that easy! It will take you 2 seconds and help me out enormously.

Slow cooker chicken soup

Posted on August 10, 2010

UPDATE: This competition is now closed.

Slow cookers are amazing.

This soup made itself while I went out all day with my Mum to Mathilda’s Market (baby stuff) and shopped up a storm.

I simply rummaged around in the fridge and freezer, chucked everything into the slow cooker, put the lid on and then came home to the intoxicating smell of homemade chicken soup.

I was lucky enough to receive this slow cooker as a gift from Lorraine at Beyond the Square Communications so that I could trial the new range of McCormick Food slow cooker recipe bases.

I tried the Moroccan Lamb Casserole and it turned out beautifully, but my photos came out terribly, so I couldn’t bear to post them here.

The good news is that it’s got me hooked with experimenting with my own slow cooker recipes (hence this chicken soup!) but I’ve got 6 packs of slow cooker bases left and I thought I’d give them away to you!

I tend to forget that not everyone likes to make up their own recipes and most people love pre-mixed recipe bases to take the guess work and hassle out of making dinner. That’s why I’m giving one lucky reader the chance to win the six packs.
