Blogger Secret Ingredient: Week 61 – Nutmeg!

Woop,. woop! I’m hosting Week 61 of the Blogger Secret Ingredient super-fun competition! 😀

(Thank you to Jenn for passing hosting duties along to me!)

Get your thinking caps on because this week’s secret ingredient is…


Nutty and Delicious!

With the holiday season in full-swing, I figured this spice would be a good selection since it’s used in both sweet and savory holiday (and non-holiday) dishes.

In case you’re not familiar with BSI here are the details:

The rules:

  1. The host picks an ingredient, preferably one that is in season, readily available, and not too expensive.
  2. The host links back to all the other previous weekly hosts.
  3. Participants create a unique recipe using the BSI and e-mail the host with their recipes.
  4. You do not have to have a food blog to participate, and you do not have to submit a photograph (although it is preferred).
  5. If you don’t have a blog, you can submit your recipe to the host, and she will post your recipe for you on her blog.
  6. The host reviews the recipe submissions by Sunday night of each week.
  7. The hosts pick a recipe that is her favorite.
  8. The host posts the winner Monday morning and sends the winner a token prize of her choosing.
