    wave.gif Hello Everyone,
    It's that time again!

    Now through Jan 31, 2009, there will be a collection of cookbooks from Zaar members for their "Top Favorites of 2008"

    icon_idea.gif Everyone is welcomed and encouraged to post their 'Top Favs of 08' Cookbook!. It's a great way to say 'Thank You' to the other Zaar members for sharing their wonderful recipes. Posting and sharing your 'favorites cookbook(s)' here in one place is a great way others can quickly reference them and browse all the wonderful recipes. yummy.gif
    icon_exclaim.gif And what a great place for new Zaar members to get some recipe ideas! icon_biggrin.gif
    NOTE: Make sure to make your cookbook public. Here's how:
    1. Go to your cookbook, and click the 'edit cookbook cover'
    2. Scroll down to where it says visibility, and check 'public'.
    3. Click 'save changes'.

    icon_question.gif To post your cookbook here, open it and look at your browser's http:// address. You will see a set of numbers (bookid=xxxxx) This is your book number.
    When posting here on the thread, simply type Book #xxxxx (replacing the xxxxx's with your book number) and it will appear in the proper format.

    icon_wink.gif The original idea to do this thread is credited to my wonderful husband Buddha, So everyone can share their favorites in one place.

    He also suggested to rewrite reviews of your 'top 2008' recipes, by starting them off with: "This recipe made it into Book #xxxxxx"
    (A simple way to do this is to copy/paste once you do your first one).
    icon_exclaim.gif It is strongly recommended that it's followed with your original review date as this will dissappear from the review once it's been edited. (for an example, see our review for Orange Pops).

    Check out last years "Top Favorites of 2007"


    Come join the fun by clicking on this link:

    icon_arrow.gif Since the TOP FAVORITES OF 2008 COOKBOOKS has taken off so well, Starting Feb 1, 2009 Bird of 2Bleu will be hosting a tag game here in the cookbooks forum based on this thread. icon_smile.gif

    This will allow all these TOP recipes to be tried and tasted, any anything for a YUM! is a good thing! icon_smile.gif

    A few things to keep in mind are as follows:
    1. Your top favs cookbook must be posted here on this thread in order to play.
    2. You will need a minimum of 10 recipes in your top fav cookbook and they must have been reviewed by you in the year 2008, and you must have given the recipe a 5-star review.
    3. Monthy prizes will be consisting of reviews and a photo (from us) for your own public recipes. (we have some other ideas for prizes in mind as well) icon_wink.gif

    So get those cookbooks in before Jan 31st and head on over to the game! icon_smile.gif

    I was going to ask the SSC hosts if it would be okay first, I've just been super busy today, but will try to get to it asap. icon_wink.gif

    I didn't think I'd do this, but after what feels like a year-long-Zaar-cookathon, it makes some sense! 30 recipes or 10 recipes is easy, 20 is hard. I reviewed over 300 recipes in 2008, and I can tell you that within this cookbook are about 10 to 15 recipes that I lean on now! These are the heavy lifters in my home! icon_biggrin.gif

    Top 20 Recipes of 2008

    Now, I need to change my reviews to reflect this. Plus, I saw many typos I can correct at the same time! icon_biggrin.gif icon_lol.gif
