Your Best Recipes, Join the Fun!

>> Wednesday, October 20, 2010

Hi everyone. As you may have noticed lately I haven't been sharing as many recipes or visiting many of your delicious blogs. I have been working on a big project that has many parts or small individual parts. One small part of the big project I can share with you today. For months now I have had the idea of hosting another site or a monthly roundup of the best recipes. So I've come up with this Your Best Recipes, a monthly roundup of your best recipes.
Show me Your Best Recipes
There are no limitations as to what you can submit, anything goes. The only requirements are that 1. It has to be a recipe that you published the month of the roundup, and it has to be a recipe that you feel was your favorite one posted that month. It can be anything your heart desires, there are no limits on the cooking or photography skills. This is your moment to proudly show off your dish! 2. Sign up to the roundup using the Linky form below to add your name. This is so we can get an idea of who will be joining the roundup.

3. Use either of the following badges to invite your visitors to the roundup being hosted here.

Your Best Recipes

The badge below you can add a small thumb of your dish. If you need help just shoot me an email.
Your Best Recipes
That's it, pretty easy! So why did I decide to host this round up? It is because there are so many talented foodies out there that can be overlooked in the mass. That is such a pity, and I would love to help you let other's see the dish you were most proud off that month.

So for this 1st edition of YBR grab your badge ahead of time. By October 30th please email me at spiciefoodie (@) the following:
1. Your Name, Blog Name, link to your best October recipe. 2. A small image size of your dish (either 300px wide for a landscape orientation image or 300px heigh for a portrait orientation image). See sample below.
Your Best Recipes
On October 31st I will post the roundup photos with a link to each of your sites. On October 31st you should post a new blog entry on your blogs with a YBR badge and a link to the roundup here on Spicie Foodie. Being that this is a new thing for me too, I know that as we go we can iron out all the little confusions or problems along the way. If you need any help or clarifications post a comment below. I am really excited to see all of your submissions, it will be a feast for our eyes! Help me spread the word and tell all of your foodie friends, thanks.
