Mystery Box Madness; August 2015

10 + 3 + 12 = Mystery Box Madness!

Each month we choose 10 mystery box ingredients from which to cook. It's up to you to select at least 3 of those ingredients and to chose a recipe featuring those ingredients from one of our 12 IHCC chefs!  We love to see which chef you chose to cook with, which ingredients you select, and the reason (or story) behind the recipe you share! 

Are you ready for August's MBM challenge?

Had to go Bayless too and found a new favorite recipe that used 4 of the MBM ingredients: Chipotle Cream Shrimp Tacos. SO GOOD! ;-)

Sharing my herb-rubbed steak with corn and pepper saute this week. Will be around to catch up on commenting this week. I went back to work full time and have some personal issues that have kept me busy. Hope to catch up today and tomorrow.
