New Around the Green World

Thanks to Megan the Wonderful over at Shabbyblogs, I now know that Blogger has added a page gadget for us to play with.  So, of course, I had to play.  See the links across the top of my blog, under the search bar?  Those are my pages. (There will be more to come.)  At first, I thought I could post to the other pages like I could to my main blog page, but that's not the way they work.  So I have a page for my digi scrapbook, and another for my favorite books.  When I want to add something to either of them, I just need to edit the original page post, as opposed to making a new post.  It's pretty cool, I think.  (If you would like to know more about the page gadget, you should check out Megan's tutorial.)

But, that whole process of figuring out the new page gadget got me to thinking how cool it would be to have a recipes page, where I could post awesome recipes of my own, as well as those of others.  Since it doesn't work with the pages thing, I started a whole new blog called The Green World Recipes.  Clever, right?  
If you look to your left, you will see the button for my new recipes page.  Click on it, and you will see the one, lonely little recipe I have posted.  I have more lined up, but I need photos to go with them before I can put them up.  So, I want to open it to my readers!  I will be setting up a Green World Recipes e-mail address, and posting an e-mail button on that page for recipe submissions.  (Those of you who know me personally and have my personal e-mail address, should just use that.)  If you submit a recipe, please include a photo of the recipe, and if you would like to have your photo posted as well, you should send that along too.  If you would like to be anonymous, please say so!  Otherwise, I will put "submitted by Blahbity Blah" at the end of the entry.

The idea here is to have a resource for cooking inspiration.  There are a lot of recipes on the web, but these will be recipes loved by the ones who submit them, so we know they are good.  I'll make sure to tag them all, so that you can easily search among them for whatever it is that you need, whether it be a chicken recipe or something tasty for dessert.  
We'll see how this little experiment works out.  Remember, even though I have a lot of recipes of my own that I want to add, this will need reader support to really work.  And if you have any suggestions for other nifty additions to The Green World, I am all ears!

I'll leave you with a couple of random pictures of Elora from this morning:


  1. Cool, recipes.... I think I've stopped cooking though.... If I change my mind, I'll defintely pop a couple in!

    I like the tabs, didn't know they had started that.

    Elora is GORGEOUS, glad you're having fun with your camera. Nicely done!

  2. Love Elora's picture and her dimples :) You know I do not cook but I have good recipes that I have collected throught the years from some dear friends. I will have to make some so that I can take a picture for your blog.

  3. Corinnea I was hoping--no, I demand! that you submit your black bottom cupcake recipe. :) Pretty please!

    And thank you Lizy, I'm looking forward to sampling one of your recipes. ^_^
