Blogger Secret Ingredient – the zesty wrap-up!

Here are the entries for last week’s Blogger Secret Ingredient competition using lemon zest:

Jessica at Johnstone’s Vin Blanc’ s Mediterranean Tuna Wrap:

Sophia from Burp and Slurp’s “whatever I can get pasta”:

Brad from EatnListen’s Sunchoke and leek soup:

Biggest Diabetic Loser’s Celery root and potato soup with lemon zest gremolata:

Natasha (5 Star Foodie)’s Lemon Zest Crusted Cod with Horseradish:

From Spiceaholic, two submissions. Raspberry lemon mini cheesecakes with gingersnap crust:

and Lemony Spinach Couscous and Parmesan:

Ed at Detroit Eats’ Fennel and ricotta ravioli with a fresh Tomato Basil Sauce

And the winner??? This was a tough choice because I thought all the recipes did a great job of showcasing the ingredient. Not feeling like I could decide, I turned to Random.org:

Congratulations Natasha!!! Please contact me with your address so I know where to send your $25 Chefscatalog.com giftcard! Thanks everyone for entering – it was fun reading your recipes and checking out some new (to me) blogs!

This week’s BSI will be hosted by Natalie of Natalie’s Killer Cuisine. Check out what ingredient she has chosen in this post.

(Many thanks to Christy – @cbroxton – for responding to my tweets yesterday when I could NOT center these images!!!  Also HUGE thanks to Barbara @vinoluci who helped me out of a permalink nightmare on Saturday from her sick bed!  Love you ladies!)

    What a fantastic range of dishes, nice work selecting the ingredient Mardi. If only there were some way of all the entrants sending you a sample. When is someone going to invent a teleportation device???
