IMBB27 + SHF20 = The Joy of Soy
June is upon us and that means new editions of two of food blogdom's most prestigious online cooking memes -- Is My Blog Burning? and Sugar High Fridays.
The first event, Is My Blog Burning?, was born out of the creative genius of Alberto at Il Forno. He first proposed the idea, and concept, to a handful of bloggers back in January 2004. That first event, staged in February of 2004, drew a small (13 entries), but illustrious group of food bloggers -- the roundup listed entries by Pim, Josh, Maki, and Elise among others.
FACT: For those of you who don't know, this blog was started in April of 2004 because I wanted to participate in IMBB #3 which was being hosted by my favorite blog (now defunct) Shiokadelicious!.
The second event which is considered the first "official" spin-off of IMBB?, Sugar High Fridays, was created by Jennifer at the Domestic Goddess. This was the perfect event for those of us with a sweet tooth and the first event, held in September/October of 2004 was anchored by the participation of Clement, Viv, Zarah Maria and Cathy.
So here we are, right in the midst of a food blogging explosion and I'm hosting not one, but TWO events concurrently. Thanks go out to Alberto and to Jennifer for allowing me to play host for the month. And now, here's the good stuff:
Prepare a dish using a soy. Use soy milk, soy beans, tofu, tempeh or any other soy preparation in your dish. Since this is a combination IMBB?/SHF event, be creative! Send me an e-mail with a link to your entry no later than Sunday, June 25th (that means Monday, June 26th for those of you on the other side of the International Date Line). If you don't have a blog, but would like to participate, send me an e-mail with your recipe, a photo of the dish (if possible) and any information that you would like published with your entry and I will post it for you.
The roundup will be posted on Monday, June 26th (keeping my fingers crossed). The roundup will also be done automatically if you chose add the following bits of code to your post:
