Inheritance Recipes – September 2015 – Back to School

Welcome to the September edition of Inheritance Recipes challenge. If you haven’t seen yet, the August’s IR round-up can be found here.

This month theme is Back to School… as summer holidays are over it is time to start getting ready for upcoming winter months, it is also time for schools to reopen after much deserved break. We need your recipes that are quick to prepare during busy school days, special weekend treats, lunch ideas, preserves that can be taken out from the cupboard any time or healthy breakfasts as long as they are inherited or inspired by ancestral culture.

Our guest judge this month is multi-talented food & travel blogger, TV personality, private chef, musician, writer, fashion guru (just to mention some of her skills) – Bren Herrera.

About Inheritance Recipes

Inheritance Recipes is a challenge that Solange of Pebble Soup and I have started to celebrate dishes food bloggers cherish. Recipes which have been passed down by a family member, a friend, through an ancestral culture and dishes which you would like to bestow to future generations.

We will also add your recipe to the Inheritance Recipes Pinterest board and include your blog’s handle in our Inheritance Recipes list on Twitter (don’t forget to subscribe to them both), we will share your recipe via social media and include in the round-up at the end of the month and best of all we’ll give away a prize to the blogger whose recipe will have been chosen by a guest judge.

About The Prize

Have you ever wanted to try your hand making preserves like our mothers and grannies used to? Then we are happy to announce that this month’s prize will be this lovely Ball® Home Preserving Starter Kit.
