In the end, the homemade garlic-parmesan rolls took home the gold and neither of us could argue with that. They were delicious and we snatched up the recipe to try ourselves. Chris didn’t leave empty-handed though. He got a goodie bag with a tiny spatula, and a little chef’s hat and a couple oven mitts. He also won a cooking class in the raffle, which we plan to make a date night out of….because let’s face it, I need the cooking class far more than he does.
Lovin’ that food photography!! Thanks for including the recipe!
I love that picture of my little plate being overshadowed by the extravagant display. Hahahaha. I definitely went the wrong way with this competition.
I must say–I LOVE my camera. While most people say the DSLRs are a little big and inconvenient for everyday use, I use mine multiple times a day. I am still learning, for sure, but having a blast doing it. I scored it brand new in the online classifieds for $475. Then I ordered a tripod, bag, memory card, uv filters and remote on Amazon. All in all, it cost me just over $600. And when I say “me”, I mean Chris.
I love the tiny spatula. SCORE! lol
Seriously, those pictures are SO clear and amazing. I think I need to get a new camera…
Great job Chris! Those stuffed cucumbers look great! Wishing I could eat some right now and it’s only 8 in the morning:)
Howdy, I just typed in FuD Feud and your post came up. I am the owner fo the Füd Feud company and wanted to tell you that the FüD Feud is back! It will be held at Gygi’s this year, and should be delicious. Check it out at feastupondelights.com Some changes are going to make the competition even more fun, and not quite as long. Registration closes April 28th. I absolutely loved reading your post! Thanks for participating last year, hope to see you in 2012.
Our wood grain Shaker cabinet fronts were designed for busy, high-traffic homes like ours. Clad with durable textured thermofoils, this line is compatible with Sektion, Akurum, Godmorgon, and Besta cabinets from IKEA. It's the perfect, practical way to add the warmth of wood to all the rooms of your home.
We have teamed up with Loloi to create a line of rugs that are as affordable as they are beautiful. This collection houses a great mix of traditional and modern rugs, in cottage-y colorways, as well as vintage-inspired beauties that you’ll want to roll out in every room.
We partnered with Stuga on a line of hardwood floors — The Ingrid is really livable, and the color is very neutral. It doesn’t lean warm or cool, it’s that just right in-between. We have really loved putting it everywhere in our house. It’s the best jumping-off point for design, no matter your interior style. In addition to being beautiful, Ingrid is really durable — we have three kids, and we always have a home construction project going on. Ingrid stands up to it all.

We recently painted our study a dark, moody green color. This is after we first painted it a muddy green, then repainted it a blue-gray. I guess what they say is true; third time’s a charm! The journey was worth it, though, because I’m so in love with this glossy green in contrast with the […]
