Please remember to link a thumbnail image and do please leave a comment after you link so that we don't miss out on your dish. 

New to IHCC? Need help linking up or just a refresher on how to join in the fun and become a part of our community? Please check out our Welcome page. If you have any questions please leave a comment below and we will get back with you.

***Monthly Events Vote***

We are looking for a decision on whether to continue to have a monthly event (beyond Potluck of course!) and what that event should be. 

Here are the options--please vote for one in the poll at the top of the page:

Option 1:
In October, we will feature Ellie Krieger as our Monthly Featured Chef and we will have rotated through all of our previous chefs for the Monthly Featured Chef Event. If we continue this event, we would need to start over with Nigella Lawson and repeat our roster of chefs. Would you like to continue the Monthly Chef Event, repeating the chefs for another year? 

Option 2:
We have also thought of another Monthly Event--a Monthly Featured Dish/Ingredient Challenge. In this challenge we would name either a popular dish (mac-n-cheese, chili, stir-fry, etc.) or a basic ingredient (pasta, eggs, chocolate, etc.). You can pick a recipe from any of our previous chefs for that month's dish or ingredient. It would be sort of a mini-challenge to find the best recipes out there for the different dishes and ingredients. 

Option 3:
Finally, we could stop having an additional monthly event and just have 3 to 4 weekly themes with our current featured chef (Heidi Swanson Oct. 3, 2016- April 2, 2017) plus Potluck week.

Please vote ONCE for which option you prefer!
