    Hey Kathy, (or any other "elf" out there)... On the lists of contests, "Baby Yaga" posted a question about the 'ingredient count". I replied back and stated that I'm wondering the same thing. Could maybe a "Staff Member" check the posting and reply, because I'm curious myself. Thanks folks.
    -Rosie
    P.S. Maybe find the post, then include a link to this thread so that "Baby Yaga" can post questions here. Just a thought.


    I think this is the thread you are referencing:
    http://www.food.com/bb/viewtopic.zsp?t=388332

    My reply in that thread was:

    ALL ingredients needed to prepare the recipe must be included in the ingredient list. So if a bread mix is part of the recipe, and that mix requires 1 egg, 1/4 cup milk, or whatever -- all those ingredients must be listed in the ingredient list are are counted in the 5-ingredient limit.


    Yes ma'am. That was the one I was referring to. Thank you so much for the clarification. It does make it more challenging that way, tho. Yikes! I've gotta re-think my recipe now, and I'm assuming Baby Yaga will have to also. That's okay, I LOVE a good challenge.

    Kathy?... Are you floating around out there somewhere this evening? I have a couple of questions for you, so I decided to post on this thread, rather than by PM, because others may find your answers helpful too.

    #1) If something needs to cook in a pot of water (like vegetables or noodles, etc)... does water count as an ingredient?

    #2) If an ingredient that you want to use comes in a package that you need to combine the contents (as an example: one of those mac & cheese boxes that come with the creamy cheese sauce in a packet)... does that still count as one if we DON'T add milk or anything else to the contents of the "packaged product". and ONLY use whats in the package or box?

    Thanks for your help dear.

    Hi Rosie,

    Cooking vegetables, noodles, etc. in a pot of water ---- the water does not count as an ingredient.

    Ingredients that are mixes, such as mac & cheese with a sauce packet in the box or Ramen noodles with a seasoning packet in the box. If you do not add anything else except what comes in the box, it's one ingredient.

    Wait, why would salt and pepper count as ingredients (TWO ingredients down just for wanting to properly season something!), but ANY items inside of prepared package would count as ONE ingredient (ie: the discussion below about seasoning packets & packaged food starches)?

    Seriously, Contest Overlords: you need to give the good people salt and pepper as a freebie!

    Every ingredient, even salt and pepper counts. That's part of the challenge of the contest. If we didn't make every ingredient count, we'd have people stretching an exemption to include things like lemon pepper, seasoning salt, all the various types of pepper (chili pepper, jalapeno pepper, etc) and we'd have an impossibly long list of what does or does not fall under plain old salt and pepper.

    WOW Kathy... you catch a lot of grief. (I dislike rude people). You have the patience of a saint. You make a wonderful "elf" here on Food.com. Keep up the good work. Have a great day, dear.

    I wasn't rude, I simply shared very succinctly--in a manner in no way directed at Kathy herself--that I think this particular rule is, indeed, quite lame. EVERYONE uses salt and pepper. If they don't...they should. There's a show on Food network, I believe, called "Five Ingredient Fix," on which salt and pepper are quite logically "free" ingredients. So I have precedent in addition to logic for advocating, as a previous questioner also did, that these "ingredients" should not count.

    It is in no way offensive to ask a question and express discontent with the ill-thought parameters of the answer. I don't see, moreover, what good it does the sponsor to receive a bunch of recipes for unnecessarily unseasoned dishes.

    But good luck to you all.

    Hey, don't worry about it. I have a very thick skin, I've got to in this job and I don't take anything personally. icon_wink.gif Let's just have fun with the contest.

    Hi Kathy... just me again. I see that WE ARE able to state in the recipe that "using a greased casserole dish or pan" DOES NOT count as an ingredient. Excellent! But can we also assume that the term "seasoned to your liking" is not considered an ingredient either? (Kind of the same as "threeovens" thoughts... just phrasing it differntly)?
    Thanks dear.
    -Rosie
    People are always going to have personal preferences for additional seasoning to customize a dish to their liking once it hits their dinner table, and that's fine. If it's apparent in the directions that you are suggesting the seasoning because it is a necessary part of the recipe then it should be part of the ingredient list.


    Tlharin: This response is from page 1, a week ago. Three ovens and myself asked the same question. You just need to watch how you phrase your ingredients... Hope this helps and good luck to you as well.

    Is water an ingredient that counts in the five?

    Water won't count as part of the 5 ingredients.

    I just entered a recipe in the Simply Potatoes Recipe Contest and the format did not have an image upload option. I have photos and wanted to include them with my recipe entry, but there was no upload option! Did I miss something?

    Hi Kathy,

    I am so excited to have submitted two recipes to this contest! However, even though I read through the rules completely, I just noticed that the FAQs stated to include 5FIX# at the end of the recipe name. I did not include that in the title of my recipe...what should I do?

    I guess I have made it pretty obvious that this is my first Food.com recipe contest entry! icon_redface.gif

    Thanks!

    Karen
