Chocolate Challenge
I'm going to extend this a week, just to remind y'all there still time to show us what you can do with your leftover Halloween candy! (I gave mine to my students. BAD idea.)

So get cooking!

Entry: Chocolate Beer Cupcakes!
HI!

So when it was announced that this round of Iron Trash would have the theme ingredient of chocolate, I got very excited, because a surplus of chocolate is one thing we DO have in our house. This is primarily because my husband & I just got married back in July. We had a cash budget to stick to, so for our wedding favors we bought up Hershey's kisses during the after-Easter sales (since our wedding colors were blue & green, and Easter Hershey's kisses are wrapped with blue, green, and pink foils...as you can guess, we ate the pink ones).

And while our wedding was lovely, it was also the hottest day of the year (up to that date), so we were about 50-60 guests short of what we were expecting....which led to a lot of leftover cake, food, beer, wine....and wedding favors. We polished off most of that within a month or so after the wedding, but we still have a surplus of Kisses in the freezer that we dip into occasionally.



I figure leftover Easter candy at Halloween time would be worthy of a few trash points. :)

But of course, what to DO with said candy? We need something else trashy to combine with it, don't we?

...what about beer? My brain says. Great idea, brain! And how do we combine these two trash-tastic ingredients? Well, chocolate beer bread, of course. BUT-- beer bread isn't quite trashy enough...so let's crank it up to 11 and make beer CUPCAKES.

What do we need to start this magical journey, you ask?


begin your journey!Collapse )

NEW CHALLENGE
The participation in the last challenge was pretty low, but I'm going to give it one more try with something that might have a little more appeal.

STEP 1: The Chef posts his dish for The Judges (members of the Iron
Trash Community) to judge. This competition is open to ANYONE who wants
to participate. All you need is at least TWO PICTURES to enter; a
picture of the finished dish and at least one picture of you actually
preparing the dish. You may enter as many dishes as you want (or can
afford/stomach/clean up after).

STEP 2: In the comments of that
dish-post, the judges (any member of the Iron Trash Community) will
leave their judgment. This may include a few short remarks if the Judge
wishes. Each judge may award up to Ten Points in 3 of the following
categories:

1. Creativity/Originality

2. Trashiness/Presentation

3. Yum Factor/"I would eat that"

Really, feel free to give the points in any categories you wish as long as you judge the dish on three separate criteria.
Trashiness, Presentation, Creativity... Yum Factor, Originality,
Color... make stuff up if you like! Just don't use the same thing more
than once per vote. DO NOT try to persuade other judges in the comments,
please!

Step 3: At the end of the Competition Period (usually
one week), I'll make a  "Master Post" with links to all the official
entries for the current
battle. This is your last chance, as Judges, to go back and leave points for all the dishes.

The
next day, I will add-up all the points for each dish, average them,
notify the chefs and post a WINNER post declaring which chef's cuisine
reigned supreme this week!

Day after that (OK, maybe a couple of days to recover), a new challenge is posted.

Final entries should be posted by two weeks from today, by Midnight on the 27th of September (Eastern Time).

And now (drumroll, please) the secret ingredient is....

dun dun dun!Collapse )

Due November 10th, 2011.

ALLEZ CUISINE!

NEW CHALLENGE
Since no one else has stepped up, and I got my head screwed back on straight and can manage it, I think it's time for a new challenge. I guess we'll need a little refresher since it's been awhile.

The Rules (no, not that stupid book):

STEP 1: The Chef posts his dish for The Judges (members of the Iron Trash Community) to judge. This competition is open to ANYONE who wants to participate. All you need is at least TWO PICTURES to enter; a picture of the finished dish and at least one picture of you actually preparing the dish.

Peel and slice the potatoes (makes it easier then trying to slice them while they are hot)
