Introducing . . . Weekend Cooking

Introducing a new feature here at Beth Fish Reads. Every weekend, starting on October 31, I invite you to share your reviews of cookbooks, food writing, foodie novels, and movies that make you hungry.

Weekend Cooking is a chance to share the food love. On Saturday mornings, I'll publish my post -- perhaps a cookbook review or maybe just some favorite food-related quotes.

At anytime during the weekend, if you care to share a similar post, please come on back and hook up with Mr. Linky, so we can read what you have to say. I hope you'll join in when your weekend (or recent) reading or movie watching fits in with the theme. Remember, the definition of Weekend Cooking is free and easy, if you think your post even remotely fits the theme, grab the button and sign in to Mr. Linky.

EDIT: for those confused by Mr. Linky -- the linky appears on the weekly posts, not in this welcome post. For the most recent posts and to participate, click on the following link: Weekend Cooking posts.

What a fun idea! I especially like the flexibility - free and easy :)

Do you ever use a slow cooker? I'd love to share some *good* (tested! not gloppy!) slow cooker recipes, with the weather getting cooler.

Great idea! I'll be on the lookout and try to participate as much as possible!

This is a great idea! I have always wanted to review some cook books, but I never remember to take any photos of the dishes I make. Hopefully this will inspire me to get round to doing it.

Cooking & reading - the best combo ever (especially with a sprinkling of chocolate). I'll definitely participate.

Serena 10/29/09, 8:55 AM  

sounds like an interesting idea. I probably won't participate since I do Virtual Poetry Circle on Sat. and Sundays I take off from the blog.

Good luck with it. I look forward to checking out all the posts.

I love this idea and the button you've made. I'll definitely be participating some, but I'm not sure I'll have something this weekend or not.

I'll be following along. Don't expect any recipe posts from this Bumble though. I don't know how to use the stove. But if ever I come across some interesting food related things I'll be sure to share!

Beth F 10/29/09, 2:42 PM  

Thanks, Molly (Bumbles)-- recipes are not the object -- just anything vaguely food related will do!

Vasilly 10/29/09, 5:25 PM  

What a great idea!

Margot at Joyfully Retired 10/29/09, 7:50 PM  

Wonderful idea.I'm hoping you are going to share some of your extensive (300 is it?) collection of food/cookbooks with us. I'll participate as often as possible. I do love good food and good food writing. Love the button too.

Melody 10/29/09, 8:32 PM  

That's a great idea! I look forward to checking out all the posts!

caite 10/29/09, 9:19 PM  

I am good at vague food...lol

excellent timing. I had something food related scheduled to post. guess it will be a Weekend Cooking now!

nat @book, line, and sinker 10/29/09, 10:46 PM  

clever!! maybe you can snag a copy of blogger 'the pioneer woman's' new cookbook and test drive some recipes for us!

Just the cutest darn button. I'm in.

Just the cutest darn button. I'm in.

Jen - devourer of books 10/30/09, 11:22 AM  

I don't review a lot of food stuff, but I'll definitely join in when I do! Plus, I'll be looking forward to reading your reviews and thoughts.

Book Psmith 10/30/09, 11:27 AM  

I love this idea! I am making a note of it now.

Kim (Sophisticated Dorkiness) 10/30/09, 5:28 PM  

I'm excited! I've been trying to cook more lately, but it can sometimes be overwhelming. I love reading food posts from people who actually have a life and don't spend hours in the kitchen working on recipes.

Molly 10/31/09, 9:15 AM  

What a wonderful idea! I will definitely read all the posts, and perhaps even have something of my own to contribute from time to time.

Vicky 2/8/10, 10:28 AM  

well, it seems Mr.Linky is down again.Use www.inlinkz.com. It is free, stable and with thumbnails.

Rob 2/22/10, 4:24 PM  

I did my first Weekend Cooking post (Espresso Cheesecake) and don't understand how to link with the others. Thanks for helping!

What a novel idea. I love it! Count me in. I have a large heap of cookbooks to get through. I can't wait to begin. :)

Rikki 6/5/10, 12:20 PM  

I just found this. What a great idea! And it fits with a blog post I was thinking about (my first food related one). Count me in from now on.

Hello Beth, I just reviewed a fantastic book on the history of Indian food, so I thought you and your followers might be interested. here is the link to my post: http://wordsandpeace.wordpress.com/2011/04/05/curry-a-tale-of-cooks-and-conquerors/
Enjoy

Weekends are about sharing food and wine with friends and family. My favorite cookbook is Culinary Artistry. It helps you create your own dish by telling you which spices go the best with what ever your are preparing.
