Southern Saturdays

Southern Saturdays Blog Cooking Challenge

Southern Saturdays

Southern cooking by the book! This is a blogging challenge where each week, the group will cook a recipe from a pre-chosen cookbook then blog about it.

For more info join the group on Facebook:
Southern Saturdays

1. Recipe must be in the selected book.
2. You cannot post the recipe in full in your blog post, although an ingredient list will be allowed.
3. You may describe in your narrative, how you prepared the recipe and what changes you made, but changes should be confined to common sense, as you would if reviewing a recipe (too many changes don’t reflect the spirit of the challenge) and you should not list the recipe as your own by including methodology, even if you have done an adaptation. Those who want more info on the recipe should consult the particular cookbook being featured for more information.
4. Participation does not have to be every week,although the group is aiming for Saturday publication. You may particpate as often or as little as you like, but limit it to one post per Saturday please.
5. Hashtag your post on appropriate social media so it may be followed by interested people, and you may also link your post within this group after it publishes.
