Should we bring back the Pie Award?

Last year we offered an award called the A&A Pie Award. The A&A stood for Alicia & Annie. The idea was that you prepared a recipe from one or both of their websites and photographed it. Then you submitted the photo to a thread we had set up and it also entered you into the giveaway over at Alicia's and Annie's. You can see an example contest from last year here.

Tami and I were talking and we were thinking of bringing back the Pie Award but the contests at Alicia and Annie's are now just simply entry forms. So I guess for the contest side of it we could just give each person a bonus entry into the drawing.

For the pie award though, we'd like to be able to award these to people again and want to get your input. The pie award is given for each recipe that is prepared and photographed and submitted here and/or on the appropriate site (Alicia or Annie). The recipes must come from Annie's or Alicia's.

Please let me know your thoughts AND be sure to vote on the poll!

I'm undecided because A) I don't bake home-made pies, B) I'm not familiar with Alicia & Annie's pies / recipes, and C) because I think any pie recipe should be considered...

This being said, Yes the pie award should come back (w/wo the acronym A&A), but not necessarily based on a particular brand or type of pie recipe.

Jen - the award is in the shape of a piece of pie - but you can cook or bake ANY recipe, not just pies. Alicia's and Annie's have hundreds of recipes, dinner, sides, appetizers, desserts, etc, etc.

Yes as it might bring up interest in the forum again, things seem a big slow all the way round

I'm all for this! I've made several recipes from A&A. You can get very creative and find some great recipes!!

I also want to post a reminder for everyone who likes to try out new recipes that anyone can sign up to test a posted recipe here on FC and once you test it and submit it to seleach, you will earn a Blue Ribbon award.

Also, if you post any recipe for a main dish on the "What's for Dinner?" forum, you could be eligible to win a Chef Guy award.
