Whether you're an aspiring writer, hungry college student, cooking show fanatic or culinary whiz mom, we would love to have you be a part of We don't care if you haven't been published or don't have experience in a professional kitchen-- we care that you have a unique/funny/charming/a*s-kicking writing voice and a passion for sharing your home cooking.

We are seeking to web publish and promote several writers and entries, but let's get down to the contest nitty gritty: we are offering a prize of $50 for first place with a limit on 5 entries per writer.

All runners up are eligible for publication. We have a broad take on pasta and include: rice, quinoa, barley, couscous, udon, etc, etc.

Every month, all of our contributing writers are entered into the office pool of gift cards, promo items and "mystery boxes" all centered around smart home cooking.
