Bookmarked Recipes - June

If you are anything like me, you collect recipes right left and centre. I scribble down recipes during cookery shows, from cookbooks and magazines and of course from blogs. Most of my recipes these days tend to come from blogs. Sometimes I am so inspired by a recipe I rush off to the kitchen and make it right away, but more often than not they are stored for another day. This fabled other day quite often doesn't arrived and I lamented the loss of the challenge Bookmarked Recipes, which encouraged me to use some of these recipes.

So, as if I don't have enough to do, I got in touch with Ruth and asked for her permission to revive the challenge. She happily agreed, so here we are at the end of June and the roundup for the first month.

I hope you enjoyed the first roundup of bookmarked recipes and I hope it has inspired you to dip into some of yours.

Have fun visiting all the websites!

If you would like to join in July's edition of Bookmarked Recipes, then just add your recipe to the linky at the end of this post.

Bookmarked Recipes Guidelines:

1. This challenge begins every month on the last Sunday.

2. You may submit as many bookmarked recipes as you like until the challenge closes on the last Saturday of the next month.

3. On the last Sunday each month I will post the roundup and announce the next challenge open.

4. You may post recipes you have bookmarked from magazines, tv programmes, websites or blogs..... Please credit the author of the recipe and ask them for permission if you are posting their recipe, most bloggers are very nice and don't mind if you ask nicely.

5. This blog is veggie, so please have the courtesy of only posting recipes suitable for veggies or why not suggest a veggie substitute if it is just a couple of the ingredients that are not veggie.

4. Mention and link to Jacqueline from Tinned Tomatoes as host and Ruth from Ruth's Kitchen Experiments as founder of the challenge.

5. You can use the logo in your post if you like.

6. I look forward to seeing the goodies you submit.
