Naughty But Nice Gang
During the ZWT III 2007, the Naughty But Nice Gang sampled delightful recipes from across the globe. This is a collection of the recipes we have prepared during the tour.
Team members were from the US, Greece, Australia, New Zealand and Canada. We were a diverse group, but we all came together to make an awesome team!
Be sure to check out the Build A Burger challenge recipe that our team created. We would like to gratefully acknowledge "Little Bee" for her very kind contribution to our New England Burger. Be sure to check out her recipe for Classic Old Bay Crab Cakes #158809. We have adapted this recipe to make it uniquely ours, for our team burger. Our Nutty for New England Naughty but Nice Crab Burger was first prepared by Andi, and her husband declared it the "BEST" burger he has eaten that comes from the sea. We were all relieved to know that it tasted good!
Well shoot, just when we got over building the burger, along came the Game Hosts (sly little chefs, aren't they...yeah, you know who you are!! LOL! ) and wanted the teams to come up with a Jerk recipe for one of the Caribbean challenges. Never let it be said that the Naughty ones aren't up for a challenge! In no time at all, we had come up with The Hot Little Naughties but Sparking Nice Jerk Chicken Kabobs #234397 . Also once again, Andi offered to be the guinea pig and make these first. These were Andi's comments after eating the kabobs - " The rice, (with just a little hint of hmmm? from coconut) mixed with flavors from the yam, the sweetness of the mango, and pineapple, and the tartness of the peppers, and the wholesomeness of the yucca, coupled with the jerk chicken was really delicious." Well what I can say...another Naughty but Nice Gang winner!
The following is an excerpt from LittleKiwiChook 's "Best of Tour" post. She really captured the spirit of the team and all the NAUGHTY fun we had during the tour!
First, there's Dreamgoddess , who had us whipped into shape quicker than pint of cream. Her organisational skills are second to none, I'm sure in her spare time she runs a troop of Navy Seals.
Next up, we had chef floWer , who not only takes the most amazing photos, but she also manages to look after sick children, cook 3 dishes a night and sneak into phone boxes after midnight to change into Wonderwoman. I want what some of she's having!
Another team mate who also takes amazing photos is Andi of Longmeadow Farm , who must also live in a place that looks just as beautiful & peaceful as the country I call home. Andi also manages to look after sick Daisy moo cows, plant paddocks of strawberries & asparagus (I'll be over this time next year for the harvest) and also gives the best excuses for buying a convertible (just tell hubby that if it only fits one child that means you'll be spending one-on-one quality time with that child) - brilliant!!!!!
Katia is from Greece and manages, in temperatures approaching impossible, to cook a lot of food & take great photos. She thinks her English needs improving, I reckon it's just great, and feel sorry for her when Peter J tries to confuse her with rotten downunder speak (slip, slop, slap, imagine what they think of us now - probably that us Aussies/Kiwis are a bunch of deviants???). Peter does have the best stories, like showing off his bright orange undies when he went into town, and also manages to cook heaps of food, whilst saving the day by showing the in-laws how to cook perfect macaroni cheese (or try to save them from cooking bad mac & cheese?).
Little Bee and iewe were both gifted premium membership, so there'll be no holding them back now. iewe & Little Bee cooked up a storm, and Little Bee even went mad painting the deck and chairs - craziness in that heat aye!
And then we have Jubes , who kept cooking and cooking and making what sounded like fantastic drinks, and then cooking some more, taking great photos, then cooking, then having great words to say about everyone's efforts, but all the while cooking with a wheat intolerance - whew, so much of this stuff is not geared for a no wheat diet. If you're gluten intolerant please look at her recipes - there's some goodies in there.
Finally, we did have PJD#2 , however she went MIA - study made her disappear.
Hope you've enjoyed reading a bit about our experiences during the tour!
