Requirements for Participation and Info
For info on the Bonus Recipe Challenge (BRC), please see the section below.
- You must have a blog.
- This is a bi-weekly event. There are two required recipes every month which should be post on the scheduled posting dates – NOT BEFORE these dates. If you can’t post them on the posting dates, post them by the end of the month.
- New recipes will be posted here on the last day of each month. Be sure you take note of when you should post about each recipe in your blog.
- You DO NOT have to purchase any of Ina’s cookbooks but it certainly would be helpful in order to pick your recipe when it comes time. Chosen recipes will come from either the cookbooks or http://www.foodnetwork.com.
- The order of who chooses is based on the order in which email participation requests are received. See this page for the list.
- If you know you will not be able to participate for a week (vacation, moving, deathly ill and in bed, etc), please send a quick email. I do ask that you make up the recipe and post it by the last day of the month.
- If a chosen recipe does not meet your dietary restrictions (vegetarian, diabetic, allergies, etc) you have 2 options: 1.) email me to let me know this and you will receive a “PASS” for that week or 2.) you could modify the recipe to fit your restrictions. Please carefully consider the types of recipes we will be making before signing up.
- A recipe or two will most likely come along that you just cannot make for whatever reason. In the case where you just cannot bring yourself to make a recipe (aside from dietary restrictions), please let me know and I will issue you a “SPECIAL PASS”. Four of these “SPECIAL PASSES” will be issued to each blogger per year so choose your requests carefully. It’s important to remember that at some point during this blogging event, we all will be cooking and baking outside of our comfort zones so please try to “go out on a limb” and try something new and/or different.
- I will be perusing all of the group members’ blogs and if there are two consecutive months without the 2 required Barefoot Blogger posts and you haven’t contacted me, I will automatically remove you from the list.
- I understand that circumstances change so if after you sign up you don’t feel like you can keep up with the group, please email me and I will remove you from the list. I’ve tried to make the requirements fairly flexible as I know we all have crazy schedules, but please remember this is a commitment.
