So 12pm has passed over in Pacific Time, and I am clearly not the winner of the Marx Food Dried Morel Challenge…Congrats to the Morel & Leek Strata with Lemon Thyme Biscuits, this recipe really does look delicious, and I think I could easily adapt the biscuits to be gluten free and try this recipe out sometime.

However I want to give a big Thank You! to all of my loyal readers and friends and all those who decided I was worthy of their vote!  I really appreciate all the support that my readers, friends and family gave me, and I look forward to sharing more recipes with you all.

Maybe next time!  Now I just need to find the places to go morel hunting here , and then I can bring you all more tasty morel recipes!  I think I’d like to try out some stuffed morel recipes as my next adventure in morel land…

However, throughout the course of this competition I did a lot of browsing on Marx Food’s website.  They sell some amazing stuff!  I am drooling over all of their wild produce that is now in season, fun foods like fiddlehead ferns and stinging nettles, the Black Oregon Truffles, and the New Zealand lamb.  If you ever get a chance to eat NZ lamb or go to NZ and have lamb (especially freshly prepared on the barbie), definitely do not turn down the opportunity.  The best lamb I ever ate was in NZ.  In fact, NZ is just paradise on earth, go and visit!

I really enjoyed participating in this challenge, even if I learned that I am not quite popular enough in the internet world to really compete.  I learned a lot, got to enjoy an ounce of dried morels for free, had a great Easter sharing the ravioli with my in-laws, and perfected a GF pasta recipe that really does work!  If I get a chance to participate in another recipe challenge competition, I think I definitely will!
