New Year, New Challenge - Recipe Clippings

#RecipeClippings
Do you have a folder full of recipes cut from magazines, copied from your mother, grandmother or friends?  I have four A4 folders stuffed full of recipes and those are the ones I'm prepared to own up to, as there are also various notebooks with recipes I wrote out by hand in my teens and twenties!


I hadn't intended to create a new blog event, it all came about through an instagram post  about my recipe clippings which seemed to strike a chord with some others.  I was going to keep it to instagram but, after thinking about it, I realised that it would be hard to keep track only through instagram and there would be a real chance that the whole thing would just fade away.

There are a number of ways you can join in and cook up the recipes from your #RecipeClippings


Make a recipe from a magazine/newspaper clipping or note: 


      • post a photograph and the recipe, or a link to a recipe, on your blog and add to the InLinkz linky at the bottom of this post. Link to Farmersgirl Kitchen in your blog post and include the #RecipeClippings logo
                          OR
      • post a photograph and description on Instagram tagging FarmersgirlCook and using #RecipeClippings
                         OR
      • post a photograph and description on Twitter tagging @FarmersgirlCook and using #RecipeClippings
                         OR

YOU ONLY NEED TO DO ONE OF THESE, BUT YOU CAN DO MORE IF YOU WISH

Rules: 
  • You may post recipes you have clipped from magazines, newspapers or have written down from friends and family.Please credit the author of the recipe or ask permission.
  • Please say where the recipe came from.
  • Three entries per month.
  • I will re-share any posts and/or photos that are tagged
  • Recipes must be added to the linky by the 28th of each month.


If you make a vegetarian recipe you might also like to link up to Bookmarked Recipes at Tinned Tomatoes, where you can share recipes you have bookmarked in books and on websites as well as from your clippings. 


Go get those #RecipeClippings and make the recipes 

you liked the look of so much, you cut them out!

Oooo brilliant idea. My blogging has slowed down recently due to final year uni work but I will definitely keep your challenge in mind because I will guiltily and gladly admit to having loads of recipe clippings!

This is such a great challenge Janice. I have a whole book of recipes which my mum has handed down to me which she hand wrote when i was growing up. I have been meaning to cook from them for ages and this is a perfect opportunity and will make my mum v happy! :)

Thanks Laura, don't let me distract you from your final year studies, please! However, you do have to eat, so maybe you will manage to make something from your recipe clippings.

Thanks Deon, what a lovely idea to use your mum's recipes, it must have been a labour of love writing down all those recipes for you. I look forward to seeing what you make.

Great idea and as I have a couple of files full of recipe clippings, I'm sure I'll be joining in!

This sounds great Janice. I have old internet printouts in a drawer as I don't get magazines much anymore. Would these do?

 
At 4 January 2015 at 19:49 , Blogger Janice Pattie said...

Yes, of course Lucy, they are the modern equivalent of clippings!

 
At 4 January 2015 at 19:49 , Blogger Janice Pattie said...

I think we all do, Karen. Will be lovely to have you join in.

Very good idea Janice. I have so many clippings and notes and ..... - mostly in an over stuffed file, but in lots of other places too.

 
At 4 January 2015 at 21:14 , Blogger GG said...

This is a great idea Janice. I've got loads of recipes, including some faves from school domestic science! GG

 
At 5 January 2015 at 08:33 , Blogger Sophie Broomfield said...

Such a great idea! Now I need to decide which clipping to make first! :)

I had a good rifle through my boxfiles yesterday - have thrown a lot out that I saved back when I was a much less experienced cook, but I've also found a few I'm really keen to try asap :-)

Such a great idea for a challenge Janice, I cut & paste (old school style!) recipe clippings into hard backed A4 books and I love rifling through them for inspiration. When I get 5 mins I'll grab one and see what jumps out at me :)

What a brilliant idea for a linky! I had loads of them at my Mums house :)

 
At 5 January 2015 at 19:31 , Blogger Janice Pattie said...

Thanks, this is your chance to get them out and see what you want to make.

 
At 5 January 2015 at 19:31 , Blogger Janice Pattie said...

ooh domestic science recipes should be interesting!

 
At 5 January 2015 at 19:32 , Blogger Janice Pattie said...

Thank you, look forward to seeing what you come up with.

 
At 5 January 2015 at 19:33 , Blogger Janice Pattie said...

Excellent, thanks for the encouragement to start this linky, it's all your fault lol!

 
At 5 January 2015 at 19:34 , Blogger Janice Pattie said...

Glad you like the idea, Janie. Old school sounds good to me, I still cut out a few myself!

 
At 5 January 2015 at 19:35 , Blogger Janice Pattie said...

Thanks Sylvia, it seems to be quite a popular idea, look forward to seeing what you make.

 
At 5 January 2015 at 21:26 , Blogger Phil in the Kitchen said...

Good idea - it might just encourage me to try to sort out the chaos of my notebooks and folders.

 
At 5 January 2015 at 22:10 , Blogger Nazima Pathan said...

Nice idea Janice - will try and think about some of my recipe clippings that need making and link up

A lovely idea Janice. I look forward to seeing what people share.

What a super idea for a blogging challenge! Many of my recipes are from clippings, so I will be sure to enter! :) Wishing you all the best for the new year!

Yes, do sort them out and get cooking, Phil!

Wonderful idea! I was just going through some of my clippings, and found a few I want to try.
