    Hey Al, about the rules, we are allowed to add other ingredients at our disposal to make the dish? How many courses do we need to prepare? Can we combine ingredients into dish’s? What happens if I eat all the dishs before I film them?(lol jus kiddin)

    I have a similar concern, if I do a meal with an app and entree focus, is that against the rules, if i just do a dessert does it work. If you could give a quick detail on that, or is it up to us do do anything that constitutes a “meal”…LET us know as the wheels of love are spinning as i listen to this Lou Rawls album to get me goin! :heart: :heart:

    My dear competitors, the rules are set, you can create anything you want. As long as it is cohesive to the judges and not a peanutbutter sammich and garden salad then I think I will let you decide what to do. Show us the love and makes us drool. Good luck! :heart:

    You really aren’t making this easy, but it is going to be fun. I have never tried hearts of palm, but do know where to get them and have a few ideas already. Love the opportunity to try new ingredients any day

    See you on Saturday!

    Artichoke hearts and hearts of palm….Buddah, are you pregnant?

  • February 7, 2011 at 10:57 am

    Thanks Buddah, This is a killer way to kick it off. I’m ready to get cooking. Last night in a dream, I was strolling along an enchanted beach, off in the mist was vocalist extraordinaire SADE, I asked her what she felt like eating tonite? It was then that the True Recipe for Love was revealed!! BRAAAANNG IT OOONNNNNN!!!! :love:

  • February 7, 2011 at 11:28 am

    A peanut butter and jelly sammich and a garden salad is a meal. I’m eating that right now.

  • February 7, 2011 at 3:53 pm

    MMMMMM….Sade. I’d let her sing into my microphone any day of the week. :love:

  • February 7, 2011 at 5:34 pm

    well i’ve stopped at a few choice locations gathering up a few items, each time listening to something more and more romantic! I’m about to run up to my final stop and I think i’ll bring along this Al Green album!! Prep work begins TONITE, right after i make sure my hands are soft enough to handle these delicacies! :lick:

  • February 7, 2011 at 8:50 pm

    Anyone have fresh artichokes?? I have a real good recipe for em, but I guess it’ll have to be canned 😥 .

  • February 7, 2011 at 9:17 pm

    This challenge involves soulful romance….definitely Cocoa Butter!!!

  • February 7, 2011 at 9:19 pm

    We got Butch, Jay, Clement….when’s the rest of the show gonna show up in this thread!! I wanna hear some hype! :splode:

  • February 7, 2011 at 9:56 pm

    I knew what I was making before he got to the 2 of 7! The choices only made it easier…..

  • February 7, 2011 at 10:13 pm

    Super stoked about this competition.. Cant wait to see what everyone comes up with, cant even wait to see what I come up with… This should be fun.. Good luck to everyone!!!

  • February 8, 2011 at 3:12 am

    Looks like fun!

    Tuesday, the sun is shining, snow is melting….something resting, something’s reducing, something simmering….all to the soothing sounds of Lou Rawls!! Love is in the air my friends!!! WATCH OUT!..it just might sneak up and bite ya!

  • February 8, 2011 at 4:34 pm

    You’ll never find, as long as you live….

  • February 8, 2011 at 4:41 pm

    Back in the day that was my Number 1 Karaoke Closer, always ends a great set!

  • February 8, 2011 at 7:21 pm

    Well it was a long day of prepping, meticulous trimming, soothing audio…I call it Tantric Food Embrace…it’s like Karma Sutra in the kitchen in here, the smell of romance in the air! After this day of culinary courtship, i long for tomorrow….that’s when this suitor is going to bang out some deliciously seductive eats!!

  • February 8, 2011 at 11:04 pm

    Wow Johnny! Them sure are some pretty words you got there!!

  • February 8, 2011 at 11:06 pm

    Good luck to all who enter! Too bad I will not be able to participate for certain and completely fair reasons. So I will leave the cooking to you all and focus on Sponsoring a couple of rounds.

    :racecar: City in da House.

  • February 8, 2011 at 11:09 pm

    Back from Vegas/LA. Fun trip, but now its back to business.

    When you contestants film your video, film the whole thing for your website. Then just edit it down to 5 minutes for the contest. I will post the full length video of the winner after the round is over. Of course, the winner will need to send it to me.

    SHOW ME DA :heart: !!!

  • February 8, 2011 at 11:10 pm

    I’ve been using to many soothing tunes :hungry: in the recipes, it’s getting my head!

  • February 9, 2011 at 8:45 am

    I have em hear in cincy! You should be able to find them at your local grocer.

  • February 9, 2011 at 8:54 am

    A very interesting ingredient list to say the least.Was at jungle jims last night picking out some OH! so beautiful artichokes. I found a very complex rose and some very nice hearts of palm. It all comes down to the quality of ingredients. You cannot turn a frog into a prince even with all the love and cocoa butter in the world. lol This is going to be fun! Good luck everybody.

  • February 9, 2011 at 9:26 am

    Oh Snap Buddah Bill! What if you start with the quality ingredients, THEN add the love and cocoa butter…That’s one sweet frog turning into PRINCE, as in the artist known as. :heart:

  • February 9, 2011 at 9:43 am

    All this love stuff is making me queasy. Now excuse me while I go punch a clown.

  • February 9, 2011 at 11:36 am

    Wow, and you know what’s funny…those comments about the cocoa butter earlier in this thread were nonsense, and then i just realized that i actually did use a little dehydrated cocoa butter in my recipe. Clement using “seed planting” tactics!!! 👿

  • February 9, 2011 at 12:25 pm

    Then that is not a PRINCE johnny, that is some sweet, sweet, delicious chocolate THUNDER!lol Which is a powerful force!

  • February 9, 2011 at 2:58 pm

    Hmmm … Cayenne Clown Punch. No, wait, not hot enough. Bhut Clown Punch (Bhut … punch … joke? :_redpepper:). I think there’s a new product there, somewhere.

    Now if “Chocolate Habs” would count as “chocolate”, I’d be golden …

  • February 9, 2011 at 3:44 pm

    We’ve even got ’em here in Minne-SNOW-ta, don’cha know.

  • February 9, 2011 at 7:26 pm

    I am sure, at least I hope you are not going to let us know every time you have the urge to punch the clown! (You know that phrase has another meaning, right?)

  • February 10, 2011 at 11:00 am

    Well it was a wrap last night, food was completed without a hitch, elements of subtle yet impacting heat across the board….I can’t say covering all that love in 5 minutes was easy, but I am pleased with the finished product. Best of luck to all of you! :winner:

    Time is fleeting…
