Back in October, we told you about the ReadySetEat Dad Cook-Off, brought to you by the Dad 2.0 Summit and ConAgra Foods. Now, the entrants’ recipes have been parsed and
10 8 semi-finalists have been chosen.
Voting begins today, and from here, four finalists will win an all-expenses trip to the Dad 2.013 Summit taking place in Houston, Texas January 31.
Dad bloggers who are handy in the kitchen are invited to enter the ReadySetEat Dads’ Cook-Off, sponsored by ConAgra Foods and the Dad 2.0 Summit.
This is a great contest that opposes the myth that men – especially dads – are no good in the kitchen. And four lucky dads will receive a full ride to the Dad 2.0 Summit, happening January 31st, 2013.
Back in February, we shoveled you over to a Time interview with John Donohue, the “Stay at Stove Dad.” Donohue’s back with a book out that’s a great read for kitchen-savvy fathers, called “Man With a Pan.” I don’t want to tell you how to live your life, but if your dad’s into cooking, this would be a great Father’s Day gift.
John was nice enough to send a copy out to 8BitDad, and unfortunately, reading it took me longer than expected. I was planning on giving it a skim and letting you guys know it was a “wonderful jaunt through food and fatherhood.” But then I started reading it and, well hell, if this book isn’t one of the most easy-to-read, interesting fatherhood AND food books, I don’t know what is.
My wife went into full on nesting/baking mode during the last week of her pregnancy. We were kicking back on Labor Day weekend while she was browsing for some different cooking applications on her iPhone. She wanted to try an app that could make searching for recipes a little less stressful and more portable when we would have our little one around.
I floated her my original-gangster 3G not too long ago (which she loves – and is consequently bat-sh*t slow compared to the iPhone 4). She decided that she was going to nest and turn out some bomb-ass cookies, 39 weeks into her pregnancy (I said that she was nesting, she had no idea what she was doing).
Keep in mind that this Allrecipes.com app is not only for parents or pregnant womens. This is just a really awesome app to have, whether you know how to cook or not. All you need is the time and a little reading comprehension. And money.. or food stamps. OR a really nice relative or friend with money. Or a personal chef. Preferably one with an iPhone.
