Other rules will be mailed to the individuals.

Themes for BM # 35th will be the following:

Since having this theme is to make sure my Kid's Delight event gets good entries, I thought it makes sense to have two themes based on the hosting time.

Kid's Delight - Sweet festival dishes for kids (3,4,5 and 10,11,12)
Kid's Delight - Whole Grain cooking (17,18,19 and 24,25,26)

Please note Kid's delight posts be it for the BM theme or the event, needs to be kid approved. Which means you get your kid, your young relatives or neighbours approve what you have made. Would surely appreciate a note on who liked it and their age group. This way we can tag it properly.

Another thing can be that you as a kid liked the particular dish. Else it will not be eligible for both the events.

Kid's Delight - Sweet festival dishes for kids (3,4,5 and 10,11,12)

Sowmya will be hosting the Edition and is calling for ideas that can fit under Sweet Festival dishes for Kids. Other thing that you might have to look out will be the following

It should be sweet only (savories not accepted)
It should be pure veg and no eggs
Cooking should be done in less than an hour

Kid's Delight -  Whole Grain cooking (17,18,19 and 24,25,26) 

Sandhya Ramakrishnan will be hosting the next edition and she is calling for dishes that are made with whole grain and kids approved. It can be any course and any cuisine. Just the two conditions the dish has to be made with whole grain and approved any a kid.


As theme says, please make a dessert that can be served after a meal. This can include Indian Dessert as well.

Any Regional with Course specific

Same regions, different course

Example: If you select Tamil Nadu, then you will have to do a breakfast, a lunch, a dinner or it can be any other combination like sweets or drinks. Only condition, the course can't be same.

Pizzas as you like

You can make different styles of pizzas, with different sauces, different flours, healthy pizzas, dessert version. breakfast pizzas anyway but it has to be pizzas.

All three days has to be different combos as expected.

Pressure Cooker

Should be a Cake, Dessert, Gravy for each day. It can be any cuisine, clause being the entire cooking has to be done in a pressure cooker. Like the tadka has to be done in the same pan, no other cooking vessel should be added for any purpose.

Recipes Healthy Recipes (Can be Diet friendly for Diabetic Diet, Diet for Weight loss) 

Showcase dishes that are considered healthy and suitable for any specific diet. The diet can be for diabetic friendly, Weight Loss program, Weight gain etc. All three can be for one program or a mix as well. However it should be an accepted diet. It's not like you make a roti and say it is good for diabetes.

Cooking with Corn

Can be corn kernels, baby corn, but not corn flour or corn starch. You can make a starter, rice, dessert etc. Each day different course.

Special Theme - Do three weeks and for the 4th week you get to do the special theme.

And this month you can showcase your "Bookmarked recipes can be online or otherwise"
