Announcing... The Comfort Bites Comfort Food Challenge

Just to let you know, this post was written before I started the paleo diet to help ease my psoriasis. Nowadays I eat a more allergy-friendly diet, but leave these older, non-paleo posts up in case they are useful to readers, as I know not everyone eats the same as I do. Thanks for your understanding. 

Link-ups and blog events are a great way of getting creativity going and kick-starting discussions about our favourite foods. And I've been thinking for a while that I'd like to start hosting one.

So here is.... The Comfort Bites Comfort Food Challenge *cue fanfare*


It's really simple. All you have to do is blog a recipe, linking back to this page, using the event badge (above) in your post. It should be in keeping with the theme of the month, and must be some sort of comfort food to you. For example, it might remind you of something someone close to you makes you (or used to make you), a childhood memory, or just a favourite food you like to snuggle up with and eat when the rain is pouring down outside. Feel free to share your stories or connections to the recipe and why it's comforting to you.

Please also share your creations by posting an image on the Blog's Facebook page, Twitter or Instagram. Mention me @joromerofood or use the hashtag #comfortfoodchallenge and I'll retweet any that I see. 

So let's get started.
The theme for November's Comfort Food Challenge is... PASTA

I thought we'd start with an ingredient that many people will consider good, old-fashioned comfort food. Remember your recipe can be gluten-free (use GF pasta if you like), vegetarian, vegan, meaty, cheesy - whatever you want to cook, as long as it's a dish containing pasta. Use any kind of pasta you like - lasagne sheets, penne, fusilli or spaghetti - and obviously adorn it with whatever ingredients you want to.

The Rules:

  • Please blog a pasta recipe, that is a comfort food to you, and email me with the link to the post, your name, and an image that I can use in the roundup, where I'll also link back to you. Your blog post must link back to this page and include the event badge (above).
  • All entries must be received by 28th November 2013.
  • You can re-blog an old recipe if you like, but please ensure that you include the badge and links as above in your new post.
  • Please don't copy and paste recipes from cookbooks or elsewhere on the internet to enter - recipes must be your own. Please abide by copyright laws. 
I'll be posting my entry soon!
