[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.

Details:
  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).


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

Submission form for submitting two photos:

Mochi recipes?

I found a box of Mochiko and I was thinking of attempting Mochi.   I've started googling recipes but the ones I've found so far haven't turned out so great for the people who've tried them.  I also started going through the recipes in the memories but there's a lot of good stuff there and I keep getting distracted (isn't there a way to search the community with Google?).

So, what do I do with this box of rice flour?  Is it at all like the stuff you use to make the glutinous rice balls?  Simple instructions(savory or sweet) with small words might be the best way to go, I seem to be suffering from a lack of brain today.

Thanks!
