Christmas 2009 featured The Best Dip Contest.
There were a lot of wonderful entries and the competition was fierce. My family is made up of incredible cooks and bakers (obviously I don't fit in) so it was a hard decision to make.
The winning dip was a corn dish made by my cousin Grace (which unfortunately I didn't try). We are so serious about our competitions that we even have a crowning ceremony!
Christmas 2010 is scheduled to be The Best Bar Contest. Now, I'm not looking to win this competition (it seems like an impossible task), but I would like to give the other participants a run for their money. Problem is, I have yet to find the perfect recipe. While there are many bars out there that sound delicious, they just won't be able to compete with the desserts my family is capable of creating. This is definitely a strong area for many of my aunts.
So, my dear, sweet blog friends: help me find an amazing bar recipe. I have about two months to prepare (and we all know I'll need it), so start sending me your ideas!
