The Chefs: Jenny and Colleen
The Menu: Mysteries! Yep, that's right, we're not going to tell you exactly what the dishes pictured above are. We could, but then we'd have to kill you. Oh, wait, no. What we mean to say is that we could, but we don't want to give too much away about the contenders in our first-ever Reader Recipe Showdown. Just so you're not completely in the lurch about what's on the plate, today we tried one of the many casserole-recipe entries, a green-apple salad, and a raw noodle dish. If you're looking for more information, you'll have to bust out your magnifying glass and take a good, long look at the photo, 'cause we're not telling!
The Goods: All this week we'll be putting the finalist recipes through the rigors of testing. To see the winners, just make sure and check out our September+October Food Issue! And don't forget: there's still time to enter our monthly giveaway and score yourself an awesome teapot!
