Tried & Tasted, the popular event started by Zuzana of Zlamushka's Spicy Kitchen, makes a May-long stop right here at Holy Cow! And this month's blog is, drumroll please, the FatFree Vegan Kitchen!
For anyone that's not familiar with Tried & Tasted, this is a thoughtful event meant to appreciate the work other bloggers are doing. In Zuzana's own words, it's an opportunity to thank your fellow bloggers for sharing their recipes by re-creating them and writing about your experiences.
It's easy to celebrate the FatFree Vegan Kitchen. This is a legendary blog that just about anyone who's ever googled up a recipe has to be familiar with. The woman behind it, Susan, is an inspiration to cooks of all tastes and cooking preferences, but among vegans she and her blog have a following that can only be called, for the lack of a better term, cult-like.
Her recipes -- and there are hundreds of them -- are not just healthy, environmentally friendly and cruelty free, but they all look so good, they make you want to rush into the kitchen and start cooking.
And that's exactly what I hope all of you will do beginning now. You have 31 days. Keep the following guidelines in mind as you cook and post your recipes:
-- Pick up any recipe(s) from the FatFree Vegan Kitchen but stay as true to the original recipe as possible-- in this case, it also means you keep the recipe vegan, so do not substitute anything in here with a product that originated from an animal, including dairy products, honey and gelatine.
--Link back to Susan's original recipe post.
--Link your post to this event announcement, and to the original post at Zlamushka's Spicy Kitchen. Feel free to use the logo.
--Send me an email at email@example.com with your name, your post URL and a picture of any size.
--The deadline is May 31 and I will try to post the roundup within a week.
Non-bloggers are also welcome to send in their recipes, with a picture.
Simple enough. So get cooking, guys, and have a fun-filled FatFree experience!
I am giving my recurring event, It's A Vegan World, a break this month because, let's face it, I am not Superwoman. Besides, hosting two events in a single month would possibly daunt even her, I'd say. Well, at least a little bit.
It's A Vegan World just had a great month at Priya's blog Akshayapaatram, and next month it will move to Lavi's blog, Home Cook's Recipes, so keep an eye out for it. We still have a lot of world to cover.
Bye now, and enjoy!
