October Recipe of the Month Contest winner
- Or should I say winners. Because it's a dead heat, which I think is
appropriate because the voting has been going back and forth neck and neck
all month long, as if there wasn't a clear favorite, just two great recipes...
The WINNERS (in alphabetical order):
Spiced Nuts 22 Votes 50%
Swiss Chicken Crockpot Casserole 22 Votes 50%
Thanks to all for participating and congrads to the winners. You can link
to the recipes above and they are also up on the contest winner site
Please feel free to start nominating November recipes at any time. I'll do
the full post repeating the detailed instructions in a day or so.
- I always try to guess which one I think will be
the winner, and I had it pegged this time, based
on discussion on the list about the recipe. But
it was a tight 1-2 contest all month long, with
the winner finally breaking away a bit at the end.
Not a lot of votes this month, but some good
recipes to add to the winners' site for people to
find going forward. They're all nice autumn rib
stickers and the sort of thing you'd love to come
home after a long day with it already dark (one
of the things I hate about approaching winter) to
a kitchen filled with the comforting smell.
So without any more ado.

Congrads!. The recipes will be up on the contest
winner's site at
tonight or tomorrow, although you can also check
them using the above links to the nominating posts.
Please feel free to post nominating November
recipes anytime. Any kind of recipe is fine, but
we're really looking for TNT favorites that if
someone was just getting introduced to
slowcooking or hadn't liked anything they'd tried
yet, you would want to be sure to share with
them. The sort of thing that will become their new family favorites.
This might be a good time to start thinking of
ways to use up the slowcooker for Thanksgiving
dinner. Things like how you use it for mashed
potatoes or stuffing or other basic sides might
seem to you too basic to nominate, but they're
things that get regularly asked on the list and
so obviously popular ideas that it would also be
good to have an easy reference to on the contest winners' site.
Or maybe you do more complicated sides in the
slowcooker. Does anyone cook a cranberry sauce in
it? Do their sweet potato casserole in their
slowcooker? What about the turkey itself?
I'll re-post the entire detailed rules soon, but
basically: You can nominate any kind of recipe
other than ones that are past winners & runners
up. Those can be checked on the winner site at
To nominate, please post or re-post to the
list, ***specifying in the subject that it's a
nomination*** so I don't miss it (I don't read
every word of every post) and ***including the
recipe in your post***. Also please include the
source (just something to give credit where
credit is due whenever possible, even if it's
very general because say you know it was a former
neighbor, but not which one), and a quick sales pitch about why you liked it.
Thanks for participating
