My 2 year old loves cooks duck on a monthly basis. This is so much fun. Maybe I'll enter him in next month's challenge and open his horizons!

Great contest, I had a blast! Looking forward to lamb next month... Have to show my husband that lamb really DOES taste good!

Lana said...

Not sure mine qualifies for the contest, but I loved trying this recipe, and what was even better is that my family loved it! Now one to lamb.

WOW what a learning experience to me. First, I read up on cooking duck and I cooked it for the first time! I created my own recipe out of what I had in the house and ran out and bought the duck. FABULOUS! I'll be making it lots now ~ so easy to work with. SECOND, I had to learn how to insert a badge into my blog....that took a few hours but I'm so proud of myself for figuring it out. However, the badge is on the side not the bottom ~ I hope I'm still in the contest! FUN ~ thanks!

Not sure how to link my post to the contest...does the badge do that automatically? If so, I don't see mine above...here it is:
