You may have noticed a couple of new banners on my blog pointing you in the direction of Foodbuzz. Well, I am now an official Featured Foodbuzz publisher and I dont know what has possessed me but I have signed myself up to take part in a 2000 strong cooking competition!! Talk about little fish BBBBIIIGGGG pond!! EEK!
Project Food Blog will whittle down from 2000 to 1 - yes 1!!
This is a bid to find the next 'Top Chef'....now, believe me I know there are a lot of fantastic chefs/bakers/cooks and as much as I like to think my family give me unbiased criticism, well, theyre family arent they! lol So I have decided as long as I do this for me then its all good!Our first challenge is to describe what defines us as a food blogger and why we deserve to be the next Food Blog Star.
I am a mummy, wife and full time cook to a family of 7! We all eat the same meals and we stopped buying cakes and biscuits from the store a while ago - we just prefer homemade food! I love cooking, it relaxes me, its my time! I can go into the kitchen with a promise of chocolate muffins all round if they play games with Daddy for 30 minutes....its win win! lol All 4 of our boys have always eaten a majority of foods put in front of them and I can bet Evangeline will eat everything in sight soon too! We are all enjoying the 52 week recipe challenge I started at New Year, it is broadening my cooking base as well as putting proper home cooked meals on the table. Im not knocking the occassional take out but I think there is a lot to be gained from watching your family enjoy and tuck into a meal that you have made from scratch.
With this competition I can challenge myself as well as try new things at the same time, I love cooking sweet desserts so it will be fun to stretch further afield into different cultures etc. As you progress through each round you get set a new challenge, ranging from setting a dinner party to recording a video of yourself cooking - ok im sure im not the only one dreading that one! lol
Voting opens on the 20th of September so I will pop back and put a link through to the vote page on Monday :)
Eek, wish me luck.....Ive seen the other contestants and think im going to need all the help I can get ;)
