We recently challenged some of the best food bloggers out there to a recipe contest. Make a weeknight meal for 4 for less than $4 per serving. Entries came in from chefs of all kinds - cookbook authors, vegans, college students, stay-at-home moms, engineers and we had to narrow a large pool down to our favorite six. But even our runner up recipes were pretty awesome and we thought we'd share with you some of our favorites that didn't make the cut... Apron Adventures: Asian Ginger Steak Married... with dinner: San Francisco Sloppy Joes Living the Justopian Life: A Seasonal Three Course Meal Stay tuned next week to find out who our lucky six finalists are!

I read "Living the Justopian life" daily and love the recipes posted by the author. Also, you can watch a live demonstration on her web site (www.justopia.com) with live feedback 5 nights a week. I highly recommend checking it out!

@debbie We didn't receive any raw recipes for this particular contest - however, we have an entire category in our forums dedicated to raw foods if people are interested in engaging in conversation! http://www.wholefoodsmarket.com/forums/index.php?plckForumPage=Forum&plckForumId=Cat%3aac80c666-ce42-49c8-8941-7c335cf4efcbForum%3ad41280f3-9e29-4731-b4a1-5ec35537163f&plckNumPerPage=200&plckCategoryCurrentPage=0

Apron Adventures has actually inspired some of my cooking. I'm glad others are recognizing the talent behind its author. Keep up the great work!
