Fire up yer ovens, people, it's a recipe contest

Thursday, October 16, 2008

ov_logo01.gifWhile it might seem surprising that Enviroblog is touting a recipe contest, it really makes quite a lot of sense.

Because...we read a lot of blogs where people inevitably post recipes and photos of their culinary masterpeices, we talk a lot about food, agriculture & pesticides (have you been reading our other blog?), and we like Organic Valley, the folks hosting the recipe contest!

And this is no ordinary recipe contest where you only get a prize if you win, if your concoction is actually really good. Nope. This is a feel-good thing, where everyone wins. You...and EWG! They describe it like this:

Holiday food is meaningful fare; it connects us to each other and to our roots. And when it’s made with organic ingredients, it’s a life-giving gift for family and friends, as well as future generations. What could be more delicious?

This season, celebrate organic and share your recipes! We’re looking for family traditions, ethnic specialties or a new twist from your holiday kitchen. Think Thanksgiving, Hanukkah, Christmas, Kwanzaa, New Year’s Eve—even Winter Solstice.

Here's how it works: you submit an original recipe (that you preferably whipped up with all organic ingredients...) and we get $1. Just like that. So go ahead, submit your recipe for all the world to try, and make an easy but important donation in the process.

Without contributions from our supporters, we couldn't do the high quality environmental research and advocacy work we do. Like the bottled water report we released yesterday or the teen body burden study we completed in September. So thanks - to Organic Valley for selecting us as one of four potential recipients, and to you for choosing us! Now let's eat.
