Welcome to Divine Dish!

January 21, 2007

Ever get bored of eating the same things over and over? Well, I have decided to start a weekly recipe submission called Divine Dish
Here’s how it works:
On Sunday, I will post a theme for the week. If you want to play you need to post your recipe on your blog by Friday (I like photos ) ) If you played all you have to do is leave a comment on my blog telling me that you played. At the end of the week, I will choose my favourite recipe out of the submissions and feature it on my blog with a link to your site! I will also be keeping a record of all recipes submitted (not just the featured ones) and will be creating a Divine Dish Cookbook with all submissions which will be available next Christmas! I encourage everyone to participate – it will be fun and we will all get to try different recipes.
Many of you already post your fabulous recipes on your blogs so all you have to do is let us know you played )
Tell your friends and fellow bloggers – the more the merrier!!
