I am so flattered to be hosting Week 52 of BSI! BSI stands for Blogger Secret Ingredient. BSI has been going on in the blog world for almost one full year. Each week, a new host picks an ingredient and anyone (food blogger or not) can submit a recipe. BSI is such a cool blog-world activity.
- The host picks an ingredient, preferably one that is in season, readily available, and not too expensive;
- The host links back to all the other previous weekly hosts;
- Participants create a unique recipe using the BSI and e-mail the host with their recipes.
- You do not have to have a food blog to participate, and you do not have to submit a photograph (although it is preferred).
- if you don’t have a blog, you can submit your recipe to the host, and she will post your recipe for you on her blog.
- The host reviews the recipe submissions by Sunday night of each week;
- The hosts pick a recipe that is her favorite; and
- The host post the winner Monday morning and sends the winner a token prize of her choosing.

I decided to pick something a little different for this week’s BSI….
You guys know I am the pancake and waffle queen. Love me some pancakes! But pancake mix can be used for so many things. For example, I used pancake mix in my Autumn Shepherd’s Pie recipe (not vegetarian).
Some tips on how to win this week’s BSI:
- You can use any brand or type of pancake mix. You can also use a gluten-free mix if you want to. As long as the mix goes with the general theme of this week’s BSI, you’re golden.
- I doubt I will choose a pancake or waffle recipe as the winner. Maybe if you have an insanely unique pancake/waffle concept, I will choose you… maybe. But the goal of BSI Pancake Mix is to use the mix in a new and creative way.
- Please e-mail me when you post your BSI recipe on your blog. If you don’t have a blog, send me your recipe and picture via firstname.lastname@example.org.
- The BSI winner will receive a small prize!
- You have until Sunday the 18th at 8 PM EST to enter.
Can’t wait to see your BSI Pancake Mix entries! Remember, e-mail your entries to me at email@example.com by next Sunday the 18th.
