What a tough competition. This contest business can be really hard to judge. Case in point, our Fregola Dessert recipe challenge. We have to give a big nod to all of the bloggers, they put up some really delicious recipes. The internal poll for this challenge even resulted in a three-way tie that I had to break. I’ll get to the results of that in just a bit.
First, let’s get to the winner of the reader poll. Congrats to ZestyBeanDog! Your Bacon and Vanilla Fregola Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting were a huge hit. Your spoils are $100 worth of baking ingredients from MarxFoods.com. We know you’ll bake up something delicious again soon…we just wish we could eat the goods.
We also have to give honorable mention to Cook Eat Delicious, who came in a very close second in the reader poll with Creamy Fregola Pudding with Saffron Vanilla Bean Syrup. It’s clear the people love their sweets.
To finish the three-way tie, I called Matthew and Katie up to my office to help me decide. After talking about the three recipes for a while, I realized I couldn’t pick a clear winner. So, the rare occurrence of a tie has happened. The two winners of the internal poll are Adesina’s Kitchen and Okay, Check it Out. Congrats to you both! The Sweet Fregola Arancini with Spiced Blackberry Coulis from Adesina’s Kitchen and the Fregola Doughnuts with Saffron-Grapefruit Caramel from Okay, Check it Out were both delicious and really different. Each of you also win $100 credit to use on MarxFoods.com towards any baking goodies you want.
These competitions just keep getting more fiercely delicious and we couldn’t be happier about it. Thank you so much to all of the bloggers, we loved reading your recipes and we hope you keep ’em coming.
