    The cooking challenges are just so much fun and even more fun when you participate. I was curious which one had the most interaction, views posts, replies. What a shock that Pork is number one...

    When I posted a summary of the themes and winners I had thought about doing actual entry counts, but that seemed like too much work.

    I know I have not only found them to be fun, but educational as well.  This new one is going to open up some different styles and ingredients for me, no doubt others as well.

    I don't know how this concept came about but it's thanks to eastshores that the first challenge was posted.  The challenges have brought the community to a new level and have attracted many more new characters. It's not just a place to visit, but a place to come to for culinary inspiration and support.  We all lead very busy lives but there are so many people here that I've come to think of as friends. @boar_d_laze  was practically on call when me and hubby smoked our first brisket, @French Fries helped me produce and reproduce the best roast pork and gravy ever, @siduri  walked me through my first cake...

    I digress, thanks for the challenges!
