BSI Sour Cream Winner

Do you know in all of my entries to BSI contests I never won?!

Don't feel too bad for me though, because I happen to think it's funner to host and pick the winner!

Our Blogger Secret Ingredient (BSI) for this week was sour cream! There were seven completely different and unique entries! Each recipe title links to the respective post to view more pictures and the full recipe, so check them out!

Ally from Sweet & Savory made Creamy Chicken Enchiladas

Michelle of Honest & Truly made Blueberry Sour Cream Muffins

Biz of Biggest Diabetic Loser made Cauliflower Mac N Cheese

Natalie of Natalie's Killer Cuisine made Strawberry Sour Cream Loaf

Judy of Judy's Kitchen made Little Sour Cream Coffee Cakes

Sophia of Burp & Slurp made Baked Spring Greens Dip

and Laura of Hey What's for Dinner, Mom? impressively made her own Sour Cream!

Thank you all so much for your entries! As you can imagine, it was a bit of a hard one to judge since they were such varied recipes, but Johnny and I separately decided on the same favorite.

The winner of BSI: Sour Cream and the $10 gift card is ...

Natalie with her Strawberry Sour Cream Loaf!!!

Congratulations Natalie! Not only were your pictures beautiful, but both Johnny and I thought this loaf would be something we'd love to make and eat in our own home. I also really appreciate your thought process of buying an in-season and cheap fruit to use! This will certainly come in handy when we go strawberry picking and have a large abundance of ripe berries on hand that need to be used up! Send me your preferred email address to christina at dinneratchristinas dot com and I will email you your gift card!

The next host is my cousin Anne-Marie over at Part of the Whole! Head on over to see what ingredient she chose for this week!

Sour cream is one of my favorite things to bake/cook with, so all of that looks sooo yummy. :)

I am kicking myself right now because I had the date for the sour cream BSI all mixed up. I bought the ingredients to make sour cream banana chocolate chip muffins yesterday. Duh, I missed the challenge!

Oh well, I'm still going to make the muffins.

Congrats to Natalie on her yummy looking winning bread! And too all the entries, they look so good!
