DSSECRETS Has Thrown Down the Gauntlet in 2013!

Tuesday, January 01, 2013

In reference...

If anyone has ever seen Master Chef, they will know that the "Home Chefs" are given "Mystery Box Challenges." Other cooking shows have similar challenges. The bottom line is DSSECRETS just wants to make sure the meals keep coming!
A little background...about 35 years ago, I crewed a sailboat, owned by my friend and CEO of of the corporation I was Senior Systems Analyst fo. We sailed from Washington DC to Newport, RI. I One night, he made a New England Boil dinner one. Everyone raved about it. (We know where their kisses were going!)
It didn't take much Chardonnay for me to blurt out that all you have to do is read the recipe and throw stuff in a pot! He took offense, we had words, and I ended up challenging him to a cooking throwdown! He made Spaghetti Marainara. I made Wiener Schnitzel a la Holstein, Red Cabbage, and fresh made apple sauce. (I fell in love with that dish when I lived in Berlin, Germany.) It had to be made in the ship's galley and we did it in Newport. I won. Soon after, I left the corporation!
SO, bring it on D! I have more life experience now, am more familiar with a repertoire of world class recipes, and I'm not afraid to it!
DSSECRETS will be announcing the item on her blog and I will echo the ingredient and, complete with photo, will post my result here!
