Any One Can Cook : New Weekly Event


I'm happy to announce this new weekly event Any One Can Cook, actually the whole idea of this event is borrowed from my friends. When I visited my friend's place for this Eid, we had some very good food, good chat and the idea of this event. When we were chatting, one of my friend suggested why don't you start a event with very simple cooking and easy to make, and the other friend immediately said I know what to name it Any One Can Cook, since we were talking about ratatouille, the last night. Thanks to both of them who gave me this excellent idea, one of them is a blogger, I'm not going to reveal her name now. Sice I already  planned for my monthly event, I made this as a weekly event.
 Right let me explain what is about the event, what do you think cooking is a skill, art, is it only for particular talented people or any one can just cook?
 I have heard so many people saying I never entered kitchen before getting married, including me :-)
Whatever we do clear instructions and passion for what we do, will definitely make ourselves excel in that thing. I think cooking is no exception to that.
 So we are having this event

  • For beginners
  • With less ingredients
  • With minimum amount of time spent
Your recipe doesn't have to fall under all these categories, if it falls under any one of the categories that's enough. I'll also explain about each category separately.
For beginners:
For beginners in the sense, it should easy for a person to follow, who is completely new to cooking or just learning cooking. For example you can send cakes, cookies or bread etc... but you have to give clear step by step instructions, so that a beginner can follow. You can also send some recipes which is very easy to prepare with less steps involved without any technical skills. 
With less ingredients:
With less ingredients in the sense with minimum amount of ingredients available, nowadays people keep travelling and sifting. Some people they work in one place during weekdays and they meet their family only during weekends. So when we are travelling or staying some where for a short visit, we may not have all the ingredients available in home like all spices, different types of flour etc..
 So you can send recipes using some basic ingredients like rice, oil, pasta, flour, few vegetables etc....
With minimum amount of time:
In this fast moving world we are always in a rush and almost everybody will say, OMG! no time, where did the time go? We rush in the morning to prepare breakfast, lunch etc.. again we rush.... for each and every meal sometimes. So you can send your recipes which involves less amount of time, not more than 1 hour, 1/2 an hour would be excellent. You can also give some tips for early preparation so that it will make your work easier on the day of cooking.
Alright, so I hope I have made it clear about the event. Remember if your recipe doesn't have to fall under all the three categories, if it meets at least one category that's fine. If your recipe falls under all the categories that's also fine.
So this going to be a weekly event, from Monday to Friday. Monday in my home page I'll have the Mr. Linky tool, where you can link your recipe, on the other days, you can see it on side bar, from where you can link your recipe.
 Anyway I'll give a few rules below to make it more clear
Rules for the event:
1. Your recipe has to fall under any one of the above mentioned category i.e. for beginners, with less ingredients, with minimum amount of time.
2. You can link your recipe from Monday- Friday anytime.
3.No limit to the number of entries.
4.Both vegetarian and non-vegetarian are allowed.
5.Recipes using pork and alcohol are not allowed.
6.Give a link to this event and place the logo in your post.

Event starts coming Monday September 27th, be ready to get post your recipes, you can link anytime from Monday- Friday every week.
So common everybody lets help our family, friends, sister or even our daughters and sons to get cooking. I hope I'll get all your support as always.
Your comments and suggestions are more than welcome, if you have any doubt regarding this, feel free to contact me.
