[sticky post] Community Design Photo Contest

Before the holidays, I was contacted by LiveJournal about working with them to create a new (professional!) design for cooking that was more user-friendly, organized and attractive. They'd also like to help us promote the community on LJ in other communities and sites (including promotional placement on the LJ homepage).

On the topic of the design, though; we'd like to hold a photo contest here so that the community is represented in the design as well! Photos will be arranged in a collage for the header of the community. We will need at least five photos for this, and the exact number will be based on how many submissions (and therefore placements) we receive.

  1. Submitted photos must be photos you took yourself.

  2. Submitted photos must be cooking/food-related and not have a promotion or advertisement of any kind.

  3. Each person may submit up to two (2) photos in a comment to this post. All comments are screened.

  4. Photos should be at least 800px wide.

  5. Retouching is permitted for things like contrast, brightening, etc. but try not to go overboard with it.

  6. Photos must be submitted before 11:59PM EST on Tuesday, January 27th, 2015 Tuesday, February 24th 2015 @ 11:59PM EST (will extend if needed).

The top 3 entrants will receive a free paid account that lasts a year! \o/

Crispy oatmeal cookies (vegan version)

Originally posted by pinchofcinnamonat Crispy oatmeal cookies (vegan version)

I'm getting more and more enthusiastic about vegan baking. After the banana upside down mini cakes worked I got these wonderful oatmeal cookies. My first attempt one them I'm embraced to describe. At the second one however they even surprised me. They came out deliciously light, crispy and airy. The combination of cinnamon, nutmeg and orange gave them a touch of heat and feast.

Double Cornbread

Double Cornbread

This cornbread is my favorite. It's moist, and full of corn flavor. Double, because it's filled with creamed corn and cornmeal.

More at my blog The Alchemist.

Question. I'm making lemon meringue pie and the recipe for the lemon filling requires 6 tbs of cornstarch. I haven't got any. Could I substitute plain wheat flour or do I need to go to the shops?

Corn meal

Hey guys. So one of my favorite meals for a few months was chili + cornbread. The last time we made it, we'd gotten a brand new canister of corn meal, and then we realized that we were SICK of chili and so we won't be making chili or cornbread again anytime soon (I only really like cornbread when I can dip it in chili!). So now I have an almost-full, save for a cup, of cornmeal in my pantry. What can I do with it that is NOT cornbread or any of its affiliates (corn muffins, etc.)? Is there anything I can do with it, or will it be destined for half-assed (yet still delicious) cornbread?

Halp me, cooking, you're my only hope.
