Eat Your Words ...

Last month, Jennifer from Savor the Thyme threw down the gauntlet. She told us to eat our words ... literally. It all started with this post on Tangled Noodle and from there the words kept rolling off our collective tongues and onto our cutting boards ... or, in my case, cookie sheets!

You can play too, the rules are as follows:

1. 'Write or spell' using food or drink and create a blog post about it until midnight on Friday, March 6th. Any previous blog posts you already have where you've created a 'written'-inspired dish or drink will be accepted.

2. Blog about your creation, including photos, and add a link back to Savor the Thyme ( and Tangled Noodle (

3. Send an e-mail titled 'Eating Your Words' to with the following information:
  • Your name
  • The name of your blog
  • The name of your dish or drink
  • Your food blog name and the link to your entry, including pictures, by midnight March 6, 2009
You can still participate even if you don't have a blog at all. Simply e-mail the above information minus the blog details and we'll include it in the round up.

4. Please keep it clean! Appropriate humor is always welcome.

The prize? Adoration of millions, the chance to flaunt your creativity and, let's be honest - some link love! The contest closes at midnight on Friday, so hurry up and get cooking ... or is that spelling?

I whipped up a batch of cherry chocolate macadamia biscotti for my entry ... and, big surprise, I spelled my own name. I'm nothing if not a shameless self-promoter. ~wink~ I only wish the photo was of better quality, but it was late and I was tired and there were one million biscotti crumbs all over my kitchen. Not to mention that the husband was scarffing down the warm cookies so fast I thought I'd never get a snap off. So there you go.

Will post the biscotti recipe at a later date. For now, why not hit up those links and take a look at the other entries. Tangled Noodle will be posting a round-up of all the entries once the challenge closes.

So, what would you spell and how would you do it? Curious Diva wants to know.

Bon appetit!

P.S. - Don't forget ... the winner of my Great Granola Give-Away will be announced tomorrow afternoon. Stay tuned and good luck to all!

This is awesome! Good thing you got the picture because this is one word that begs to be eaten immediately. Thanks so much for participating!

Hi Tangled Noodle! Thanks so much for creating this fun event. I really enjoyed and can't wait to read your round-up on Monday. Just sent you the email with the details. Thanks again! :)

Nothing wrong with promotion. Nothing! Definitely want to see that recipe.

Oh, if only I had ANY talent. ;)

Astra Libris said...

Ooooh, what wonderful letter biscotti! SO creative!

the biscotti looks delish. I'm desperately trying to find the savory italian tart Dh made a few years ago...with the Iron Chef crust!

The Diva on a Diet said...

Thanks, Duo - and I'll have the biscotti recipe up on the blog next week. Happy cooking!

Ah, Sassy, you're nothing but talent, girl! :)

Thanks, Astra ... it was tasty too!

Veri - that tart sounds yummy. Was it something from the FoodNetwork site? Their search feature is less than optimal ... so good luck ... and let me know if you find it.

I would spell my favorite food out in a chocolate drizzle - what would I spell, why chocolate of course!
