Martha Stuart is having a contest on her blog.
THE BIG IDEA IS A COMPANY-WIDE COMPETITION THAT GIVES STAFF MEMBERS THE OPPORTUNITY TO SHARE THEIR OWN IDEAS FOR THE FUTURE OF MARTHA STEWART LIVING OMNIMEDIA. I WAS ABLE TO NARROW THE 40 ENTRIES DOWN TO 7 FINALISTS...BUT I JUST COULDN'T CHOOSE A WINNER...SO I'D LIKE YOU TO HELP ME DECIDE. HERE'S A SUMMARY OF THE PROPOSALS FROM OUR 2008 BIG IDEA FINALISTS!
The entry that I am asking you to vote for is the FOOD ALLERGIES publication. This publication will have a large emphasis on gluten free recipes. While there are gf cookbooks out there to pull recipes from, it is always a risk. An expensive risk. Gluten free cooking and baking is not cheap (to purchase a loaf of gf bread is about $6). In my experience, recipes produced in magazines are a home run (due to the fact that many are tried before they are printed by non-gf eaters). If a gluten-eater gives a stamp of approval on a loaf of bread, it is worth the time and money for me to try to make it.
So far, I have only found one magazine that is dedicated to recipes for those with food allergies. That magazine is Living Without (thank you mommy!) and it is fantastic! Unfortunately, it only comes out 4x/year. Any kind of additional publication would be an amazing help to myself, Parker, and any others out there living with food allergies.
PLEASE, PLEASE vote for FOOD ALLERGIES. http://blogs1.marthastewart.com/martha/?rsc=ts_Homepage_Homepage
You can vote every day until the 7th of February.
So vote, and vote often.
