Favorite Recipes Event : Cake Recipes: A monthly Event

previous post: Whole Wheat Rye Maple Challah | next post: Hearth and Soul Blog Hop: 103: 6/5/2012

I started blogging to keep a written record of recipes, so Nidhi wants to try some time she can take a look at. I didn’t learn anything from mom as she was not willing let her daughter cook thinking that I am going to get hurt. Now I am cooking her recipes from the memories of having watched her cook and also talking to my dad about his recollection of mom’s cooking
After almost 2 years and 7 months of blogging I got some courage to announce an event.  Guest hosted events and blog hop still hosting an own event was not my forte until now. 
So dear friends and fellow bloggers get ready to cook up some delicious dishes, this event is about favorite dishes. Everybody have   favorite of everything, just like my little one likes vanilla ice cream , you can make her eat bowl of rice telling that you are going to give her ice cream after that.  My hubby loves banana bread.  Just like favorite color and dress you will have a favorite cake, ice cream, curry, bread so on
We are going to make favorite dishes every month. I would like to know why that particular dish become your favorite, if it has story like, mom made it or grandma made it, then add that. 
If you already blogged about favorite dishes, then make a revisit and add a fresh twist to it by tweaking recipe or changing ingredients etc. 
I always think that for the effort to make dishes and send to blog events, the participant should be rewarded.  So as token for your efforts and time, I will be giving away $ 10 dollar Amazon gift card to a winner.
A linky will be open from 1st of the month to month end. Now it is from June 1st to June 30th 2012.
You can link only one recipe to linky. 
No Archived post.  Recipe should be posted in your blog from 1st to month end. If you linked an archived post you are not  going to be included in the giveaway.
Recipe can be with or without egg and also gluten or vegan free.
You have to link this announcement post in the recipes; using logo is welcome but not mandatory. 
 As a token for your time and effects to make these recipes I am giving a 10 dollar Amazon gift card to one of Participant.  Winner will be selected through random org.
For the participant in U.S, Canada get Amazon gift card. Rest of world participants I will try to send gift items.
If the first winner fails to provide address and details within 24 hours. I will select the next winner. 
I would like you to follow me in feed burner, Google friend, twitter, Pininterst. Also like my face book page.   Chances of winning will increases when you follow me in all. 
Non-bloggers can also welcome, send me full recipe with a photograph to this e-mail.

    Love your cake event, Swathi. I already have the perfect cake, which I can share on you blog hop, after the 8th of this month!
    So happy that you are hosting, great memories for Nidhi. I was the same way as you, when I was growing up; as a young girl, my mom would not allow us in the kitchen when she was cooking or baking…I regret not learning her famous breads she used to make, and everything else!

    Congratulations, dear friend on your new blog-hop, I know it will be a great success!

    My hubby has forbidden me from baking cakes after the overdose of cake he had last month on his birthday, hehe.

    But I’ll still try to bake one, may be a very small 6″ one :)
