This has been a superbly fun week. I've had a blast reading all your submissions for our Facebook question:
WHAT is your favorite thing is to cook/eat/do/order using puff pastry?
Y'all had some great ideas. For realzies.
First, our grand prize winner!
Tim W. of Greenville, SC. He suggested empanadas, which sounds delicious and wonderful and like it could involve sour cream.
Tim, shoot us an email (lindsayandj AT gmail DOT com) with your mailing address and we'll come visit you at 3am with your prize.
Not. We'll use the mail like normal humans.
Congrats on being the first one to take money from us.
And, let's not forget our two honorable mentions - two recipes we'll be making and featuring HERE in the coming weeks!
This was hard. I wanted everyone to win, and then I realized that if I made ALL these great things with puff pastry I would blow up like a balloon and Jay wouldn't like me anymore.
So I stuck to my guns and picked two. I picked based on what I haven't ever made or haven't had recently. It was a very scientific process. Don't be mad if you didn't win. It's math, people.
Dang it. Math stinks.
Our first honorable mentionee is Debra P.! She suggested Beef Wellington with puff pastry, which sounds SOGOODIWANTTOMAKEITTONIGHTBUTCAN'T. Nicely done! Can't WAIT to make this.
The second recipe we're going to make was a suggestion from Angela R.! I love this girl. She suggested puff pastry with chocolate, which means A LOT OF THINGS BUT, I'm thinking maybe something involving Nutella. And whipped cream. And maybe....bananas? Do we dare?
That's where you come in! We've got two new recipes to write, and I'd love suggestions for how to make these two things. There are lots of variations! Leave links, suggestions, ideas, memories, dreams, ingredients...whatever! We'll take your ideas and make something fun. Group recipe development is totally a thing.
Congrats to all our winners. If you're dying for puff pastry now too, don't forget about the curry-coconut turnovers we made a while back. AMAZING. Try them soon!
Thanks for playing, people. There will be a contest soon for email followers - stay tuned for more!
