MONTHLY - Cooking with Tea Contest sponsored by Tea Chef. Experiment with different ideas to develop the best recipe with that tea, then send it in with a picture.

MONTHLY - Carnival of Dining Out. Come celebrate your favorite place to eat in this new monthly event. Entries are due by the end of the month, and complete information can be found here.

MONTHLY - POTATOES ... How do you find them? Great? OK? Routine? Boring?
In any which case, just cook up something with this universal tuber, take pictures, and publish them along with the recipe & a write-up on your blog on the 1st of March. That would be your entry to the March edition of Jihva for Ingredients hosted by Vaishali on my blog Happy Burp. Wanna go for it?

NOW UNTIL JULY 1st - They Really Go Well Together #3. The idea of the event is to pair ingredients that have similar volatile aroma compounds. This month's ingredients are srawberry and coriander. Complete details are right here.

NOW UNTIL JULY 1st - Wild Food. Host Bron Marshall is inviting and encouraging food bloggers to join with her and take a walk on the WILD side. The theme for this month is… Wild Weeds! You can choose to create something new or share a past experience cooking or eating any legal Wild Weed, anything that grows Wild in your backyard, home town, or country. The theme's been extended to include any native plant, fungi, seaweed, fresh Wild herbs, dried Wild herbs or spices, Wild greens or any weed grown or sold as food i.e dandelions, nettles, watercress, Wild thyme, Wild mint, Wattle seeds, Wild pepper, Samphire (sea asparagus), piko-piko, fern fronds etc. As living in the heart of many cities some of us don't have access to such products, any meal, dish, dessert or treat that has been given the Wild Weed treatment, theme, shape, name etc. is totally accepted! This is a fun event aimed at using ones' imagination! Bron knows you won't be silly enough to go out hunting endangered plant life, or serving up unknown, unidentified or illegal weeds!! Visit Bron's blog for more information and WILD ideas!

NOW UNTIL JULY 4th - Monthly Mingle. This time, the theme is Scream for Ice-Cream. July is HOT. Temperatures rise and many of us are on summer break. It's a great month to kick back, relax and chill with a refreshing bowl of something cool. Cool, creamy, smooth, rich and straight out of the freezer. Some say there are only "31 flavors", but I believe you all can prove that theory wrong! This is what I want for the next mingle: your perfect ice-cream creation. Be creative, be imaginative most of all be cool. Pair flavors never dared, make floats, sundaes or sorbets - whatever you do I want you all to scream for ICE-CREAM! Complete details are here.

NOW UNTIL JULY 5th - Blogging by Mail. Spearheaded by Stephanie at Dispensing Happiness, this is a great, fun way to hear from other food bloggers, and better yet, get cool goodies in the mail. All the information you need is right here.

NOW UNTIL JULY 8th - Hay Hay It's Donna Hay #13. Consider this the sorbet edition, this time hosted by Eat, Drink, Live. Want to join in this fun event? Check out all the details right here.

NOW UNTIL JULY 15th - Weekend Cookbook Challenge #18. This month the theme is red and white. All the info you need is right here.

NOW UNTIL JULY 18th - Blog Or Bust #1. This brand new monthly event comes to us courtesy of Clumsy Cook. This blogging event will feature healthyish foods that won’t bust the measurement tape. There are no rules about low-carb or low-fat (though I’d love some recipes), but all entries should have good health in mind—be it the inclusion of whole grains, nutrient rich ingredients, etc. A dish that you won’t regret cleaning your plate for! You don’t have to include a calorie count, but you can if you want, and the calorie count doesn’t have to be low as long as the recipe is nutritious. Feel free to add any weight loss tips or tidbits in your post! If you have any concerns about whether your recipe is nutritious, send it anyway! I’ll post and we can all discuss what we think. I’ll post a theme for each month’s event. The first Blog or Bust event theme is “Party food.” Since it’s summer, and everyone loves a get together in the backyard, beach, or park, this month’s theme can feature the food you’d like to eat there. No rules really—other than creating something “good for you” (we need to get into those bathing suits ya know!) Your dish can feed a party of 30 or 1, so no need to focus on potato salads and fruit punch (though those would be great too!) Simply create a dish you’d like to share with family and friends. Complete details are here.

NOW UNTIL JULY 19th - Blog Party #24. Stephanie celebrates the 24th edition of her popular Blog Party event, and this time the theme is "Blogger's Choice." Interested? All the deets are right here.

NEW!! NOW UNTIL JULY 27th - For the Love of Ice Cream. Who doesn't love ice cream? And what better time to celebrate it than the month of July which is the official National Ice Cream Month? That's exactly what the folks at YumSugar were thinking too, as they dreamed up this new one-off challenge. Complete information can be found right here.

NOW UNTIL AUGUST 1st - They Really Go Well Together (TRGWT) #4. The idea of the event is to pair ingredients that have similar volatile aroma compounds. This month's ingredients are mint and mustard. Prepare a dish that combines mint and mustard (any type mint or mustard). You can either use an existing recipe (if there is any) or come up with your own. Take a picture of the dish and write an entry in your blog by August 1st with TGRWT #4 in the title. Readers will be particularily interested in how the flavour pairing worked out, so make an attempt at describing the succession of taste and aroma and whether you liked it or
not. A round-up will be posted with pictures. Complete details can be found here.
