This week, I was going to post my recipe for Crispy Chicken, which is as simple and kid friendly as they come. However, a two day trip to the local hospital for my mother (hopefully she is stable again - her blood counts took a bit of a dip which required a transfusion and some platelets) means that post will come next week.
So this was a great time for me to get good news, all the more pleasing because it was so unexpected. I will admit there have been weeks when I've been glued to food52 for more hours than is good for a person who thinks she has a multi-faceted life. This was not one of them. Due to aforementioned medical issues, I was very quiet on and inattentive to food52 for the past few days. When I logged on late this afternoon, after helping to deliver my mother back home, I saw that my recipe for Moroccan Style Lamb is a FINALIST (!!!!!) in this week's contest for "Your Best Recipe with Citrus and Olives." It actually took me a few seconds to realize it was mine because their professional photo was so stunning I didn't recognize my own dish!
So, a little yin/yang this week. Win or lose, I am ecstatic to be a finalist for the first time. The recipe I'm up against sounds really great, too, and I'll probably try it soon. But, I am hoping that any healthier kitchen fans who are also food52 participants will log in to food52.com and vote!
