Recipe Roundup Giveaway!

It's the Pass It On Plates' first ever
Recipe Round Up!
One of the most frequently asked questions we get when people have Pass It On Plates is:
"What should I put on my plate?"
Be our Guest Blogger on our Plate Diaries blog - submit your favorite recipe post.

We're doing a recipe round up to gather recipe posts from people who want to be a Guest Blogger at our Plate Diaries blog at

The Giveaway runs Nov 22-29 and there will be two kinds of winners. Everyone who enters will become a guest blogger with the post they used to enter the Giveaway. One person's name will be drawn to win a beautiful cookbook with color pictures of each recipe.

1. Enter with a link to your recipe blog post.
2. The recipe post must include at least one picture.
3. The recipe must be for something that could be given away on a Pass It On Plate.
4. The recipe post can be from any date, so you can enter an older post if you want.
5. Entries not following the first three rules will be disqualified.
6. One recipe per person, please.
Note: If your recipe needs to be modified to meet the criteria in #3, please mention that in your entry. If you're not sure about #3, you can check out our FAQ to learn more about Pass It On Plates.

Giveaway starts at 12:01am PST on Saturday November 22, 2008 and ends 11:59pm PST on Saturday November 29, 2008.
Winner will be announced December 1, 2008.

So what do you get?
We actually have two kinds of winners. Everyone becomes a Guest Blogger with the post used to enter the Giveaway. In addition, one lucky person's name will be drawn to get an extra treat.

What's the extra treat that one person gets?

If your name is drawn, we'll swap recipes with you - This is a beautiful cookbook with some fantastic recipes and great food gifting ideas. Recipes range from sweet treats to savory relishes and easy snacky foods you can whip up in no time.

Everyone gets to be a Guest Blogger?
Yeah - That's the cool part. Since we need to publish a new recipe per week, every entry will be published on our Plate Diaries, giving you full credit and linking back to your site. It's a win-win. Even if you don't win the cookbook, you still get a bump in your Technorati rank and the potential for more traffic to your site. When the giveaway is over, we'll go through all the entries and schedule them into the Plate Diaries. We'll let you know when your post is scheduled to be republished. If you would like to see one of our guest blog posts, you can check out Deaf Chef at Large's recipe for Apple Crostata With Cheddar Cheese.

By entering this Giveaway, you are agreeing to let us republish your entire recipe post with pictures on our Plate Diaries site at This post will also include a link back to your site where it was originally published and an invitation to our visitors to check out your site for more recipes.

Remember - enter with a link to the recipe post, not a link to your entire site.
If your link just goes to your entire site we won't know which recipe you're entering and you won't qualify.
