BSI - Event

Ok Guys! As I mentioned before, there are going to be some changes to my week of hosting BSI event, so here they are. There was some miscommunication regarding the hosting of the 89th week’s event and as a result two people hosted week 89. There after two parallel threads of the same event were going on. This problem was discovered during my week of hosting. We had stop this from continuing and for that I had a lot of discussion with the immediate previous hosts. The conclusion was that I will continue to host this week and my week will be 92nd week of this event. I have updated the list of previous hosts below to accommodate everyone and also the last date of submission for my week.
The story behind this event is that each week the chosen host will pick up an ingredient of his/her choice which has not been chosen as BSI before. To participate in this event you need to send recipes using the chosen ingredients and at the end of the week the host announces the winner and passes on the event to the next host.

Now time for the surprise. I am really happy to announce that I have received a sponsorship from CSN Store’s Dutch Oven for the winner of this week’s BSI-Event. The prize is a gift certificate of US $35. This gift certificates can be used in CSN Stores US/Canada and if the winner is from UK then an equivalent amount of gift certificate will be given which can be used on CSN Stores UK online stores. There is a huge range of products to choose from. My apologies if the final winner is not from US, UK or Canada, but I am sure the recognition of being a BSI winner is a reward by itself! So gear up and send me your entries. 

This week's ingredient is Pistachio.


How and When:

    * Main or one of the main ingredients of your recipe should be Pistachio.
    * Anyone can participate, you don't need to have a food blog to participate in this event.
    * If you have an archived recipe then please send me the link.

  7. pistachio is a hard one to think of for recipes, i can't think of any savoury meals i have made with pistachio.

  8. OK, now I can see what might have happened! It looks like Hema might have asked two people to host week 89 b/c you listed Abraham Chocko, but the recognized host for that week was Debbi from Debbi Does Dinner Healthy. She asked me to do week 90, and I asked Cheryl of The Southern Cookbook to do week 91. It is currently week 91.

  9. Will send you my entries soon dear.. happy hosting dear.
