I'm sending this to all members because there are still some spots open for the 5 Ingredient Fix Challenge on October 13. Here's just a bit of added information:
Claire Robinson's concept is to use 5 or less ingredients per dish. Salt, pepper, water, and oil are freebies.
If you are making a dip, for example, the dip should not have more than 5 ingredients. If you are going to serve it with crackers, say, those do not count.
Or if you are making spaghetti sauce - 5 ingredients. Served over pasta - pasta not counted.
If you make a cake from scratch, every ingredient counts toward the 5. But if you use a cake mix, then you have the mix, eggs, water(which is free) - that's two ingredients. You get the gist.
Last year I made a fruit crumble which had five ingredients, and I served with ice cream I made, which had 3 ingredients - two separate dishes served together.
Here is the link to Food Network's 5 Ingredient Fix site where you can browse many recipes and either use one or just get inspiration: http://www.foodnetwork.com/claire-robinson/index.html
Everyone coming is asked to bring a dish. If you are coming with someone, please bring one dish per person. The quantities don't have to be huge, since we will have a wide variety of things to try.
At the event, I'll pass out cards on which you can write your name, the name of your dish and the five ingredients - so everyone can see what wonders you have created!
Keep in mind that prizes will be awarded in each category!! Looking forward to seeing many of you at this fun event!
Get in touch with questions.
