Last week's Salon Kitchen Challenge dared contestants to whip up a batch of their spiciest wings. Winner Stephen Easley regaled us with the story of how he learned to make Jackie Smith's Louisiana hot wings -- from the NFL legend himself. Read his post at Salon and check out Francis Lam's roundup of other great entries.
Now, this week's challenge:"Months ago, our friend Helen Rosner posted about her hamburger macarons on the excellent blog Eat Me Daily. Yes, tiny French cookies made to look, utterly convincingly, like hamburgers. Yay awesome!
We've been keeping this gorgeous little nugget in our back pocket since then -- no, not literally, but we would if we could! -- and with April Fool's Day this week, it's finally time. This week's challenge is to make food that looks like something else. Will your kids go to school on Thursday with worm sandwiches made from spaghetti? Will you fry rabbit and call it chicken? Will you make a hamburger look like a cookie? (Yay awesome!)
We love seeing your creative side each week with the challenges; here's a chance to show a little mischief too. Be sure to include photos!
Be sure to tag your posts: SKC April Fools"
Blog your submission under your real name by 10 a.m. ET Monday, April 5th. Francis will announce the winners Tuesday the 6th on Salon.
