It’s another week and another Blogger Secret Ingredient. :) Week 56 to be exact.
Thank you, Julie, for selecting me to host this weeks secret ingredient. As a reminder, here is how all the fun goes down:
Each week, a new host picks an ingredient and anyone (food blogger or not) can submit a recipe.
- The host picks an ingredient, preferably one that is in season, readily available, and not too expensive.
- The host links back to all the other previous weekly hosts.
- Participants create a unique recipe using the BSI and e-mail the host with their recipes.
- You do not have to have a food blog to participate, and you do not have to submit a photograph (although it is preferred).
- If you don’t have a blog, you can submit your recipe to the host, and she will post your recipe for you on her blog.
- The host reviews the recipe submissions by Sunday night of each week.
- The hosts pick a recipe that is her favorite.
- The host posts the winner Monday morning and sends the winner a token prize of her choosing.
Make sure you visit all of these fabulous bloggers that have hosted the secret ingredient week in the past.

My secret ingredient came to me right away. So what is it you ask? Ricotta cheese!
Ricotta is such a versatile ingredient. It can be used for sweet and savory. My kind of ingredient.
Remember when I used it a few weeks back for my Super Stuffed Buffalo Chicken? I also have been meaning to make a stuffed french toast with the secret ingredient as well.
How you are going to use it is the most important question, my friends. :mrgreen:
