Welcome to the SECOND  month of a year-long Best Wine Country Recipe Challenge. From April through March 2012, BiteClub is on the hunt for great cooks from Sonoma, Napa, Mendocino, Lake and all of the Northbay to submit your Wine Country recipes each month.

How it works: Using the comments below, submit your recipe for this month’s category: Casseroles & Sides Recipes. Recipes must be original (no fair stealing from your favorite cookbook — family recipes, your grandma, your mom or best friend are great resources, though. Recipes for each month’s category must be received by the end of the month.

May: Casseroles & Sides
We’re looking for one-dish casseroles (yes, tuna noodle is okay) or spectacular sides.Make sure your recipe includes ONE local ingredient. That can be anything from local eggs, milk or butter to local fruits and vegetables.
Deadline for this month’s recipes: May 28

– A gift certificate to a local restaurant.
– Your recipe on the menu of a local restaurant
– Eligibility to compete in the Best Wine Country Recipe Cookoff

The Fine Print: I won’t exclude pros, but really, this is about everyday eats. I want folks to find great recipes from their aunts, grandmas, dads, friends…whatever. This is about SONOMA COUNTY! If I find out that your recipe is intentionally plagiarized, you will automatically be disqualified and I will ridicule you publicly. Full rules here
