Well, I guess I was wrong. Turns out us food-folks would rather talk about American Idol, not eat it. I should be bummed out, but I received a great entry from Sarina in Trinidad with a "Paula's Done Lost Her Cool"-ade. It's a really fun name (I <3 bad puns!) and it sounds refreshing - absolutely perfect for the summer. Oh and as Sarina points out, "it's even better because it’s alcohol free and shouldn’t conflict with any ‘medications’ you may or may not be on!" Fantastic drink, thanks for sharing it with us! You should be expecting your YumSugar shirt in the mail soon!
The other American Idol Food creation that I have to share with you is my own. When I think Idol, I think cheeseball and when it came time to create something, I naturally ended up on cheeseballs. I ended up creating three different ones (one for each judge): there's Simon - a sharp pasty-colored English cheddar, Randy - a fresh feeling chocolate mint, and Paula - the sweet and nutty one.
