Holiday Cooking, Blogger Style- 2nd Edition

Last year I hosted the 1st Edition of my Holiday Cooking, Blogger Style recipe exchange and I was delighted with the impressive participation from my fellow bloggers! 81 bloggers linked up and, since many of you listed multiple recipes in one post, there were over 200 recipes shared!

I've used many of your shared family recipes throughout this past year for my own family, as well as for entertaining parties that I've hosted, and for various holiday gatherings that I've attended.

As the holiday season draws near, I thought it might be fun to host a 2nd Edition of my Holiday Cooking, Blogger style holiday specific recipe exchange.

I want to give those of you that are interested time to go through your recipes and pick out your favorites so please mark your calendars for next Friday, October 5th. On that day I will post the specific instructions for this holiday recipe exchange as well as my favorite holiday recipe and then open up Mr. Linky so that those interested in participating can be listed in one central location. Feel free to grab the button above to use in your post.

I'd be most appreciative if you would be so kind as to help me spread the word by posting about this on your blog!

Thanks so much and I hope to see you next Friday!

I discovered your blog via the "Just As I Am" blog and think your holiday cooking exchange project is so grand. I would love to participate and shall add a little post about it to my blog this evening.

This sounds like fun. I'll play! (Here from Boomama.)

At 1:37 PM, Blogger R said...

I, too, found this through BooMama. Count me in! Can't wait!

This is perfect--I just posted 10/1 about wanting to simplify and not get caught up in fall/winter holidays by spending money on decor and such that doesn't mean anything for eternity, and I've decided to focus instead on cooking which spurs hospitality. And people are what really matter!

So thank you for helping me fulfill my goal this holiday season!

At 6:36 AM, Blogger Terri Steffes said...

I hope anyone can join! I found you through another blog. I will have to spend some good time here later!
