Pick a Chef: Weinkraut

I finally got around to making the last recipe that I needed to for the Recipezaar Pick-a-Chef event that I participated in last month. Since I wasn’t in the mood for soup, I substituted Cynna’s recipe for Weinkraut.


The taste was pretty good – the recipe made, as is, had far too much celery seed – if I make it again, I’ll cut the amount back by at least half. We served it with some Weisswurst and Bockwurst that we got from Whole Foods, over mashed potatoes.

I still think I prefer my kraut straight up, though. — Rosie, you won the 1 Year/100th Post drawing. Drop me an email with your address so I can get it in the mail for you, or we can get together so I can drop it off to you. Congrats! I really think you’ll like it.

100th Post/1st Birthday Contest!

Isn’t it ironic that the 100th post to this blog falls on the exact day of its first birthday??

To celebrate both occasions, I’m going to do a little something special! A little contest, so to speak. The prize? A box full of goodies from Columbus. Not sure yet what exactly will be in the box (whatever suits my fancy and whatever flavors I think best represent the spirit of Central Ohio, and a few of my favorite things), but I promise it won’t disappoint.

I’ve shared a bit of myself with you over the past year, so I’d love to know more about you. To enter, simply comment on this entry by telling me a bit about who you are and what you like about my blog, what you hate, what you’d like to see more/less of, if you have a blog of your own, etc. The winner will be drawn at random from all comments to this post at 11:59pm on October 31st. This is open to everyone worldwide, so speak up and let me know you’re reading.
