Hi Lynn,

During the scoring process we were tracking recipes that listed servings as '2-4' in case they could be counted as bonus points. We found 2 recipes that fit this category for your team.  It was determined that these recipes would not count for points and so points were deducted for any team  that claimed them on their scorecard.

You did not have these on your scorecard so you were never given points for them, nor were any points actually deducted.

Your point totals are correct and it was just our mistake of listing those adjustments (that never happened) on your final totals.

Sorry for any confusion. But.......on the bright side.........the scoring team found an extra 20 points for you.

PS
MG can relax. lol. We don't go to the team threads for any information for scoring. Everything we need is on the scorecard you submit to us.


Your revised scores:


TEAM:   │ H π 
Azores - 130
+5 points kale #2
+5 points pork shoulder #7

Japan - 115
No adjustments

Philippines - 109
+10 points bonus - sprinkles - momaphet, Muffin Goddess

Penalty for late scorecard - minus 25 points

Round 1 - 329

If you have any other questions, please let me know. image

Are the guides aware that one of the submitted recipes is not accepting reviews or photos?  I have made it and I understand so have two other players (Mikekey sent me an email apologizing).

http://allrecipes.com/personal-recipe/64591710/guava-barbecue-sauce/

Is there a work around?

I sent Mikekey a message because this recipe says "personal" recipe, so maybe it is not actually public, but just shared with us.  I tried to search for it, but three other guava BBQ sauce recipes showed up - not his.

Most of the guides (I was absent image) were looking for a work around on this last night. I believe they found a way to do it. Let me go check on this and I'll get back to you on it. image
