As food bloggers, sometimes we get so caught up in trying new things that we forget about the dishes that we make all the time. These are the recipes we make repeatedly for house guests and potlucks. The ones our families won’t let us skip on the holidays. Our beloved signature dishes. Our house favorites.
What are your house favorites? This will be a monthly blog event where you can show them off. It will run from the first day of the month to the last. I’ll have a writeup of all the entries by the fifth of the following month. The rules are simple:
1. Your dish needs to be vegan. This means no meat, fish, dairy, honey or their derivatives.
2. You should have made this the same way at least three times and consider the recipe “finished.” Any course is welcome, from appetizers to desserts.
3. In your blog post, please mention House Favorites: Vegan, and link to my main page: http://chezcayenne.blogspot.com.
4. Use Mr. Linky at the end of the monthly announcement to enter your post. For the first event, please also leave me a comment below this announcement with the link back to your post so that I have a way to double-check the entries. If Mr. Linky proves to be reliable, I’ll drop this requirement, but for now, I don’t want to miss anybody!
Of course older posts are welcome, but please limit your entries of older posts to one a month, or reblog about them during the current month to enter more. There is no limit to the recipes you’ve blogged about during the current month.
Feel free to enter your House Favorites: Vegan entries in other blog events.
You are welcome to use either of the logos here, but it’s not required.
If you have a recipe that’s not vegan, but you can veganize it without changing the character of the recipe much, blog about your vegan version and send it in – there’s no need to make the vegan version three times. If a vegan ingredient is an option, make sure that you mention it in the ingredients list and instructions. (e.g. Your ingredients list can say something like 2 tablespoons butter or olive oil and your instructions say heat butter or olive oil.)
Non-food bloggers can participate too. Do you have a favorite message board that welcomes vegan recipes with photos? Post your recipe, a photo and a link back to my main page on the message board. Then use Mr. Linky and leave a comment here. Don’t have a favorite message board? Check out the Recipe Help and Cooking forum on VegPeople as a great place to post a few vegan recipes. I have it on good authority that vegan recipes are welcome there!
