    Are there any restrictions on using alcohol in the recipe?
    Also, the rules state that it must serve 4, can it serve more than 4?

    Thanks!

    Hi Angela:
    On behalf of everyone here..."Welcome". I am not a Food.com staff member, but I think it's safe to say that I can help you with your question.
    If you check the February 8th post in the "contest/events community section", someone asked the same thing (but it was for the RSC Hidden Valley Ranch contest, but I'm sure the same rules apply for the Simply Potatoes contest.) You are allowed to use alcohol, according to the "elves" (staff).
    And "Yes"... it's just a 'minimum' of 4 servings. Are you cooking for 20?... count me in and make it 21. LOL!!!
    Kathy or someone (an "elf") will be by to help you, but maybe not until Monday. (I think they're all "party girls" when they are not cooking! Just kidding!)
    Good luck to you, my new friend.

    You're very welcome.
    I would absolutely love them to take me on the staff. (I actually sent a message to Food.com asking if they would, but never heard back from them). icon_sad.gif
    Like I mentioned, you will have to wait for it to be confirmed (probably by "Elf Kathy" and probably on Monday). But if the same rules apply to this contest as it did the other, you should be fine. (I'm frickin' curious as to how your gonna get your potatoes drunk).
    LOL icon_lol.gif
    Good luck, my dear.

    Thanks for pitching in so quickly and (smartly!) Rosie!

    She's right, you can use alcohol and just make sure it serves 4 or more!

    I never got your message about working for FC, BTW! But I don't have much control. They only hire people in the NYC area who can work in the office, darn it!

    Good luck and welcome angela!

    Super! Okay, one last question, do garnishes count as an ingredient?

    Yes, if you have to list it out, it counts.

    Like if it is a dip, you don't have to list the crackers, just can say you serve it with crackers in the directions, but if you have to sprinkle the actual recipe with chives, that is a garnish or serve it in a bread bowl, that is a garnish and that's food so it counts.
