Hungry Mother's shrimp and grits vs. East Coast Grill's wet bones? A tough choice.

Can you believe it? It's a rematch! Hungry Mother and East Coast Grill face off again in this year's Munch Madness championship. Remember what happened last year? The next few days could be interesting. You have until April 1 at 11 p.m. to cast your vote. We'll announce the winner April 4.

It was an incredibly close race. Any one of the Final Four might have made it. East Coast Grill garnered 2,170 votes. Challenger Ten Tables missed the win by just 95 votes, coming in at 2,075. Hungry Mother received 2,487 votes, while Craigie on Main was 204 behind, with 2,283 votes. Maybe we should check for hanging chads.

The Recipe Box Project:

If you want to contribute a recipe to The Recipe Box Project, please write it below. Also tell us where you got it (package box, cookbook, mom, friend -- include the name). We're looking for the kinds of dishes that people grew up on, that were served at family suppers, that tell a story, that are typically New England, or that you brought with you from a far away place to New England. We will print one of the recipes in the Food section once a month. To ask any questions, write to Debra Samuels, who is overseeing this project, at To discuss your recipes, click here.
