  1. How do you add the banner code to a blogger post? I fooled around with it to see if I could and it came up as a html code and not the picture of the banner, any help on this? I need to be sure I can do everything properly before trying to get involved. Love the idea too by the way! : )

    1. I see you found a way to add the banner code. As an FYI, I find the easiest way to add a banner is to grab the code and then edit the HTML code of the blog post I am writing. For those using Blogger, there is a way to toggle between "compose" mode and "HTML" mode when you are writing a post. I simply paste the banner code somewhere (usually at the bottom or top) in the HTML of the post I am writing.

      Hope this helps :)

  2. Ah...No sooner did I ask, that I went back in and tried something else and it worked : )

  3. Hello! I have added a new recipe for the Made with Love Mondays.
    Please note that I have moved my blog to a new address:
    Thank you!

  4. Love this series idea! Have just added a recipe and linked it up!



  5. Hi am sending my entry to your event made with love on mondays.please check out

  6. Hi, I have a question about restricted foods. If I have canned my own tomato sauce or strained tomatoes, can I use them in a recipe since they are not store bought and if I have a link to how I went about doing the canning?


    1. Hi Morgan - yes, you can definitely used your own homemade canned/jarred ingredients. Just be sure to note they are homemade (i.e. "homemade canned tomato sauce") and please do not encourage your readers to use store-bought canned alternatives. That would defeat the whole point of encouraging folks to cook from scratch :)

  7. thank you for hosting - mine is a bit OTT this week but all homemade (apart from the cigarellos!) x

  8. A great linky, I linked before checking all the banned ingredients. I have included Evaporated milk which I'm sure is banned but could easily be substituted with sour cream or single cream.

  9. Wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas !

  10. Hi Javelin,

    I am Tanya, a newbie food blogger. I have linked my recipe Coriander Channa Pulao... Please check. I believe it suits and satisfies the guidlines of the event... If it misses any guidelines please let me know


  11. Hi, linking up for the first time! I try to cook as much as possible from scratch and will look forward to linking up again!

  12. Hello Mark!
    I am finally back to blogging after a long break. I have linked my fruit tart into Made with Love.
    Hope all is good with you. Have a nice Sunday.
    Alida X

  13. Hello Mark,
    I'd like to share this delicious Panmarino but cannot find the link up tool.
    Where's it gone?
    Many thanks and all the best
