Chapter OR'S members were busy in December taking part in the Secret Santa Operation for the community of Norwalk. The group's theme for the year is "Scatter Kindness" and the members have various events planned to share their time and re- sources. In October, the group's members donated toi- letry items for the Polk County Women's Shelter. In November, Chapter OR sponsored a holiday lun- cheon and style show which featured fashions from Mainstream Boutique in Valley Junction as well as merchandise from local designers/artists. Money earned from the luncheon fundraiser will help support the group's scholarship program which benefits high school seniors from Norwalk and Martensdale St. Marys. EGGS RECIPE CONTEST Wholesome, fresh eggs are an essential ingredient in a variety of delicious recipes. Whether it's the simple joy of whipping up an omelet, piling billowy meringue on a pie or blending rich yolks into smooth custard, cooks love the ease and versatility of eggs. The Iowa Egg Council is looking for the best, most delicious recipes from cooks across the state as they kick off their "Incredibly Good Eggs" cooking contest. "Show us your egg-cellent creativity and you just might win an iPad Mini!" says Lois White, director of con- sumer affairs. She urges contestants to be creative and "think outside the shell" with new, innovative ideas. "Make this a fun opportunity to receive recognition for your excellent food preparation skills and culinary cre- ativity," says White. Three divisions make up the contest. They include: Adults age 18 on up, Culinary Arts Students enrolled in a formal culinary arts program and Students'in grades 6-12. One winner from each division will be awarded an iPad Mini for first prize, a Kitchen Aid mixer for sec- ond prize or a $250 Kitchen Collage gift card for third prize. Contestants may enter up to two recipes. Recipes can include party foods or drinks, breakfast entrees, main dishes, side dishes, snacks or desserts. All reci- pes must be original and contain at least four eggs (in the fo.rm of whole eggs, yolks or whites) and no more than 12 ingredients total. Look for contest updates throughout spring. After preliminary judging, the top five recipes from each cat- egory will appear on Facebook and the Iowa Egg Coun- cil website where viewers can support and "like." Cre- ators of recipes who receive the most "likes" will re- ceive a 15rize. A panel of culinary food experts will se- lect thetop three recipes. Entries will be judged on: Taste (40%), Appearance/Presentation (30%), Texture (20%) and Ease of Preparation (10%).
