Hi Allrecipeeps!

The winner of the last photo contest was... drumroll, please... Tammy-Lynn!! Congratulations, Tammy-Lynn!! 
Tammy-Lynn's name was drawn for her photo of Abernathy Biscuits! 

Let's do something a little different this time - who is up for a theme? Post in the comments if you want the recipes to follow a theme - and if so, any theme suggestions!  We'll choose an idea by the end of the week for a fun twist on the contest!

Some suggestions I have are: Summer recipes for the grill, Slow Cooker Recipes, Drink recipes... 

Since this is Allrecipes, the choices are endless! 
AllrecipesElizabeth :) 

(For those of you new to the contest, here's how it works: Every two weeks, we will post a list of 50 poor photo-less recipes. Make them, photograph them, and upload the photos, and for each photo of one of these recipes, we will enter your name in a drawing to win a 2 year Supporting Membership! (Already a Supporting Member? Get two years tacked onto the end of your membership, or we'll send you a fun prize!) Don't forget to review these recipes as well!)

Theme sounds fun! There's lots of popsicle-type recipes out there that are faceless, maybe like a popsicle/ice cream treat theme!

Since it's summer... then how about PICNICS??!!!!

I like that idea about popsicles, but nice, light, fruity cupcakes are always in fashion! :D

Congrats to Tammy Lynn! I am loving the theme idea... in honor of summer, how about "no cook recipes," (ie. sandwiches, salads, drinks, etc.)?
Jun. 21, 2011 12:05 pm
Salads! Potato, garden, pasta, jello.....
Jun. 21, 2011 12:39 pm
Congratulations Tammy-Lynn! I'm with What's for dinner, mom on this one. Lets photograph faceless salads.

How about using the recipes from your Summer Fruits and Vegetables Collection? That would allow for a huge variety of recipes both savory and sweet.
Jun. 21, 2011 1:26 pm
I'd go with salads! Any kind!

Thanks DarcieA and Molly! I've never had a blue star before, so I'm looking forward to getting it.

Red, White and Blue and let's honor our Troops and our Country! 4th of July Recipes would be fantastic!

Congrats Tammy Lynn! I want a blue star!

sounds good!! only bummer for me is that in New Zealand, i'm in the opposite season to the US (in winter now). But could still be fun!
Jun. 21, 2011 4:19 pm
Thank you Jewels, and don't give up on getting one!
Jun. 21, 2011 4:21 pm
Congrats Tammy! I'm up for any theme. But I do love my baking! Tends to make prettier pictures!

Oh course it needs to be something summer related. I guess cooking on the grill, Picnics or may be even produce that is in season this time of year. I do think the theme is a wonderful idea.
Jun. 21, 2011 5:25 pm
Ice cream, popsicles ~ frozen desserts are also a good idea. May be just summer recipes in general...
Jun. 24, 2011 10:35 pm
LOVE themes!
Jun. 25, 2011 4:24 am
Love the idea of using themes!
Jun. 28, 2011 4:46 pm
Keep Waiting for AR to update this.....have they forgotten us?

I like the summer theme-- salads, grilling, no-bake desserts. Something to give me ideas for the family cookout!

About Me is the world’s largest food site created entirely from contributions from talented home cooks. Allrecipes was first introduced in 1997 by five college students who loved cookies and had the early vision the web would be a fantastic place for people to find and share everyday food ideas. Twelve years later, is home to an amazing community where millions of recipes, reviews, ratings, photos, and blog postings spanning all types of ingredients, dish types, occasions and cooking styles are viewed and shared daily. Allrecipes grows every day as the community continues to share new ideas and experiences. Along with the original site, Allrecipes now has communities for home cooks in Australia/NZ, China, France, Germany, and the UK/Ireland. (Check them out! You’ll find links at the very bottom of this page.) For cooks on the go, Allrecipes is available free on the iPhone via the Dinner Spinner app, and web enabled phones at
My favorite things to cook
Everything and anything! Allrecipes community is an amazing resource for discovering all types of dishes and treats
My favorite family cooking traditions
All of them! How could anyone choose? All year long our community is cooking and celebrating seasonal holidays and special family occasions. Even the dinners we all have to get on the table every night can be a cherished tradition—or will seem so once the kids are grown.
My cooking triumphs
The millions of recipe choices, the tips and advice, the support and encouragement to try new things or rediscover old favorites make using this site a constant joy.
My cooking tragedies
Who doesn’t have these? Too many to tell really, but from each disaster there’s something to learn and laugh about. Cooking is meant to be an adventure!
