Fair Indigo "Foodies"

I work amongst quite a group of amateur bakers and chefs here at Fair Indigo. It is an unusual day at the office when someone doesn't bring in something delicious - Homemade Banana Bread, Lemon Cookies with White Chocolate Chips, Almond Cake with Strawberries.  Is your mouth watering yet?

One recipe in particular is office-renowned - Ellen's Delicious Olive Dip.  It is an oft-talked about combination of cheese, green olives, cayenne pepper and more cheese (if nothing else, we are proudly supporting our local dairy farmers!).

Served up with pretzels or veggies, this dip is typically consumed as a meal at one's desk between meetings and emailing marathons. Or, like today, it inspired an impromptu "snack break" in the kitchen while commenting on the latest samples for our Holiday 2010 catalog.

Which got us thinking...  do you have a  recipe that people just can't stop talking about? Better yet, did you come up with that recipe yourself? If so, submit it for our Holiday Recipe Contest! One winner will have his/her original recipe printed on a limited edition towel gift set available for purchase this holiday season - plus, the winner will receive a set of towels when available.
