  1. OK, I had to vote for A Taste of Koko – Yule Log Cake feat. When I first opened the post, I thought it was a “cheat” using the item for presentation rather than IN the recipe, but then I realized it was both. Way to go! 🙂

    I have to admit that Okay, Check it Out – Forest Floor Donuts most caught my attention though. It was less about the mushrooms (I’m not a shroom person myself), and more about the spruce tips. I’ve never heard of them before, but I’m very curious now and will have to see about getting some. I do use rosemary a LOT – not sure how similar it is in flavor/texture.

    Nice job guys. Good luck!

  2. I really liked A Taste of Koko’s Yule Log and Okay, Check it Out’s Forest Floor Donuts (really cute title for them!), but I voted for Romeo Cucina’s Stuffed Acorn Squash. It looked interesting and it is something that I would be more likely to make in my own kitchen. Good luck everyone!

  3. Chris – eBay is your best bet for spruce tips as far as I know, probably in the spring. (I froze mine, but I don’t know if sellers do so.) They’re very tender, moreso that rosemary, if only because the needles are thinner. I’ve ordered spruce tip syrup before, and although it’s good, it’s a much much fainter flavor than the tips themselves – but has the benefit of being available year round.
