Monthly Mingle #7: Sweet Love!

Photo: Sweet Love by Meeta Albrecht



Liebe geht durch den Magen - a wonderful saying in German, which when translated means love goes through the stomach. Fitting for all of us food bloggers. Wouldn't you agree?

If you have not taken a closer look at your calendars then let me tell you the reason I chose to share this little piece of wisdom with you. February 14th is just a little over a month away. Valentine's day! I love Valentine's day.

For me it is not just a day to show the love I have for my better half but to show my appreciation, affection and good feelings I carry for my friends, family and the special people around me. OK I do not need a special day to remind me of that, but having a specific day is a perfect opportunity to celebrate these feelings.

So, I am inviting you all to my Valentine's Mingle to celebrate love this month. Love of the sweet kind. Create a decadent dessert, a luxurious cake or rich sweets. Just make it sweet for your special sweetie!


Let's get together and share our favorite romantic stories or the special feelings you have for a friend or family member. Let's share "Sweet Love."

Here's how it works:

  1. Create a dish that fits to this theme. Blog about it anytime from now till February 8th, 2007.
  2. Email me your entry with your name, a 100 x 100 pixel picture of your dish, and your permalink by February 8th, 2007.
  3. In your post please include a link to this post and/or the MM logo, so your readers get a chance to mingle with us.
  4. Please send only one entry per blog. If you do not have a blog, simply email your entry, with a picture (if you would like me to add a picture) to blogmeeta@gmail.com.

The first mingle for the new year. Are you ready? On your marks, get set - GO!

I look forward to drooling over all your entries. Wish you sweet love!

  19. Hopefully I'll be organized enough to make this one. As for the previous comment about heart-shaped cake, I guess you could make a big heart with a square pan and a round pan: bake an 8-inch (or 9-in) square cake, turn it like a diamond. Bake an 8 (or 9) inch round cake, cut it in half and stick the halves to the top sides of the diamond. Voila.

    But that would be a pretty big heart. Maybe there's another trick to make a smaller one?

  20. Meeta,

    I'm just dropping a note to let you know that the link in the "previous mingles" post leads to this entry, rather than the roundup. Could you fix that, please? I'd love to see all the Valentine's recipes!

    Thanks, Judith
