Here is a really cool recipe contest we entered. This is from a cooking blog (http://www.feastingonart.com/2010/02/feasting-on-art-recipe-contest.html) that blends art enthusiasm with cooking. Each month, the author chooses a painting and you enter a recipe that uses the ingredients of the painting.
