NEW!!! MONTHLY - Cooking in Microwave has always been a big challenge, atleast for most of us. Most I have done has been to bake a cake or just use it for for reheating. So this event is a learning experience for many to target on specific theme each month and cook up in microwave. So calling all food bloggers to send in their dish which will be part of "Microwave Easy Cooking". Details can be found here. Dish can be of any cuisine.
NOW UNTIL NOVEMBER 1 - TGRWT #7. This month's challenge is to create a recipe that combines caramelized cauliflower and cocoa. The event is being hosted by Flavor Alchemy. They Go Really Well Together (TGRWT) is a food blogging event where you create a recipe that pairs two ingredients that are not usually seen together. Caramelized cauliflower and cocoa share several chemical compounds and theory predicts there should be great recipes with the pair. The challenge is finding one.
NOW UNTIL NOVEMBER 10th - APPLES & THYME. The event is a celebration of time spent in the kitchen with our mothers and grandmothers (or anyone else you wish to blog about) and what they did or did not pass on to us that influenced how we cook and eat today.

The closing date is 10th November, with the roundup being posted on 15th November, the first annual Apples & Thyme Day. Complete details can be found here.
NOW UNTIL NOVEMBER 20th - CLICK. A new, theme-based event dedicated to food photography. The theme for November 2007 is 'Noodles.' For details, go here.
NOW UNTIL NOVEMBER 25th - BLOG OR BUST #3. We all love fall food: pumpkin, apples, squash, with its comfy spices (nutmeg, cinnamon) and warm-up your heart feel. So, Blog or Bust this time asks for you to create a "Fall" dish - pumpkin pie, chili, gratin, soup, the possibilities are almost endless. Something comfortable, something cozy, something hearty. Something that screams "Come on, holidays, do your worst!" We need to prepare ourselves for winter, people, and the best way to do that is to fill our bellies with something delicious, nourishing, and homey. We don't, however, want to feel like stuffed turkeys, so keep things healthy. Complete details can be found here.
NOW UNTIL NOVEMBER 26 – HOMEGROWN GOURMET #3: PIES AND TARTS Hosted this month by Columbus Foodie, participants will make a dish that follows the theme and that somehow represents their home region (town, state or area).

What do you do with those (or any other) leftovers? Project Foodie is hosting Leftover Tuesdays #10 where we challenge you to transform those leftovers into tasty temptations. The leftovers can be the remnants of a previous meal (either home cooked or bought) but they can also be the unused portions of the various components you've used to create recent (or not so recent) meals. Basically, leftovers are anything in your fridge, pantry or freezer for which you have no intended purpose and need/want to use up! Get all the details here.

Post about a Christmas cookie between now and Monday, December 24, 2007 and send them to Food Blogga.
