Calling All Chic Chefs!

Can you make a mean PB & J? Are you a wonder at whipping up bruschetta? Do you put your own sassy spin on the classic “ants on a log?” Well, we want the scoop on your sweetest, savoriest recipes!

We’ve teamed up with CHOW.com to check out your Tasty Tweets. Everyone has a fave afternoon snack, and yours could snag you a $100 gift certificate, and a goodie bag bursting with cool culinary swag! Here are the delicious details:

The contest begins today, and ends on September 6 at 12:00 p.m. EST.

- Follow both @ModCloth and @CHOW on Twitter.

- Tweet your snack recipe @ModCloth, and include the hashtag “#MCCHOW“.

- Recipe must fit within one tweet. No limit on how many times you may enter!

- Prepared foods don’t qualify as recipes! I.e. “Unwrap candy bar & eat” won’t cut it.

- Entries will be judged on tastiness, creativity, ease of prep, and adherence to the rules.

    Once we’ve narrowed down the most appetizing ‘Twe-cipes,’ we’ll join CHOW.com for a tasting, and then choose a winner. So, get crack-a-lackin’ on your snackin’ – and be sure to share the recipe!

    And, be sure to check out all of our cute culinary-inspired items to create a look that’s yummy enough to eat!

      Chai Rice Pudding that warms you from head to toe…
      * 2 cups of water
      * 3 1/2 cups unsweetened rice milk
      * 4 black chai tea bags (5 if you like it strong!)
      * 1 cup short grain white rice
      * 1/2 cup light brown sugar
      * 1/8 tsp. salt (just a pinch!)
      * 2 medium-sized apples, peeled, cored and diced
      * 1/4 cup raisins
      * whipped cream (to give it some oomph!)
      * cinnamon for garnish (to make it pretty)
      Boil water and 1 cup of rice milk. Remove from heat, add tea bags, steep for 10 mins. Add remaining ingredients after medium heat boil, cook until rice is done. Garnish and make it pretty!

      What’s a hashtag?

    9. ModCloth 09/02/2010 at 8:08 pm #

      Hi, Kate!

      A hashtag is the word or phrase that follows the hash symbol (#) in a Tweet. They make Tweets searchable, because you can enter the hashtag – in this case #MCCHOW – into Twitter’s search field, and see all the recipes that have been Tweeted thus far! :)
