Be sure and link to this week's Carnival on your blog to show your support for Carnival volunteers. We depend on our wonderful volunteers to sift through all the recipes each week (pun intended), so if you have not volunteered before it's probably your turn! If you have volunteered before and you enjoyed it, feel free to volunteer again too. (It's a great way to introduce new readers to your blog and share your love of cooking at the same time.)
I have added a Carnival of the Recipes page here. (Hopefully, this will help folks plan for upcoming editions with themes.) If you have more suggestions on how to make our Carnival bigger and better, just let me know.
Next week, the Carnival of the Recipes will be hosted by Food Past. The theme is Holiday Memories. send in your favorite recipe (and holiday food memory) to firstname.lastname@example.org by noon CST on Saturday.
If you're interested in hosting a future carnival at another time send an e-mail to email@example.com with the word host in the subject line.
