Home Cooking Dish of the Month (April 2013) - Voting

Dave MP Mar 26, 2013 12:07 PM

There were a lot of wonderful ideas in the nomination thread, which you can view here:

From the long list, the voting has been narrowed down to five choices. Let's do the voting differently this month: use the recommend button to cast your vote. If you want to write in a different nomination, do so in capital letters, and other users can recommend those.

Only one vote per person, please, so make sure you've only recommended one of the choices (you can switch up until the deadline, though).

Voting will be open until March 31st at 11pm Pacific time.

    And the winner is Spring Rolls!

      Dave MP - love the idea of using the Recommend button, but i'm curious - why are you still saying people can write in different nominations? that was for the nominations thread, right? this is the voting thread.... confused.....

        I chose the nominations that were the most popular. However, if someone suddenly feels like there is something else they really want to add in, I am fine with a write-in vote, and then others can nominate.

        Write-in votes are very unlikely to win, but I am fine with allowing them if people want....but most of the time it's going to be a throw-away vote.

          I have a question re spring rolls, which I used to love. Have any of you successfully used a rice skin instead of win ton wrapper? My online searches have been very discouraging.

            I have changed this to be sweet phyllo dough pastries....which would include variations on baklava.

            If this means you want to change your vote, there's still time to do that.

              How would you decide a tie?

                If there is a tie, then I will cast my own vote and break the tie. :) Otherwise, I am not voting.

              My dark horse nomination remains just that. I tried.

                Sorry, my change in decision was more strategic in that I want this dish to come around near the holidays (November / December) .....I am still a fan!

                  I agree, around the holidays it would be great! That way I could give away most of it... no way could I have a whole pan of baklava laying around my house, especially since my SO doesn't eat sweets. :)

                    No worries, I have plenty of family & friends to test my skills on. I'm on a personal mission to nail this dessert (in time for end of year celebrations). Enjoy April's pick! I'm going to focus on cheese.

                      I made lots of baklava, with homemade phyllo, for a Daring Bakers' challenge a while back. Here is the link to the challenge pdf--there may be some recipes and tips for you! http://thedaringkitchen.com/sites/def...

                          Many thanks, Pavlova, for posting the baklava link. I've baked many things with phyllo (commercial) but never ever made baklava which I love. I am bookmarking the link and hope to make some soon :) Thanks again!
