Sweet New Zealand & Fennel Ice Cream Revisited

Hard to believe that we are now into the fourth month of the Sweet New Zealand monthly blogging event, created by the very lovely Alessandra Zecchini, and it is my turn to host this month. My first time hosting anything like this so please bare with me!  This is an opportunity for all Kiwi bloggers (whether you are living in New Zealand or overseas), as well as for non-Kiwi bloggers living in New Zealand, to connect and share some of those sweet treats from your kitchen. You can find a round-up of last month's sweet delights over at Couscous and Consciousness. So many sweet treats I want to make, though they may have to wait until post health kick. This is a really fun way for us all to get to know each other, and I hope you will all join in for another month.  If you're new to this event, the rules are simple:

1.   This event is open to all bloggers living in New Zealand (even if you are not a Kiwi), as well as all Kiwi bloggers living and blogging overseas.

2.   You can enter anything sweet: cakes, biscuits, slices, desserts, even drinks, and you may submit as many entries as you like, including old posts if you like.

3.   Your entry must  contain the phrase Sweet New Zealand, the Sweet New Zealand badge (choose your own size), a link to the host, and to this post - so if you are submitting an older post remember to update it accordingly.
4.   To make submitting your entry really, really easy I have included a linky tool at the end of this post.  The linky will be open until 28November  and I will do a round-up of all entries on 30 November.  To use the linky tool, simply scroll down to where it says "You are next ... Click here to enter", and then follow the instructions.  If you prefer you can email your entry to me by 28 November, providing your name, your blog name and URL, your post URL, and a photo.  Please email to mairi29  at xtra dot co dot nz

And it is as simple as that - no more rules just looking for oodles of sweet inspiration!  Have fun and I look forward to seeing all your sweet entries.

To get you thinking sweet check out this Fennel Ice Cream & Bittersweet Chocolate Pear Cake - the fennel ice cream is revelationary and comes via Orangette...seriously my favourite ice cream....ever, yes ever. It will convert fennel haters in to lovers!!

Happy sweet concocting!

  5. Hi Mairi - for some reason photo failed to appear after cropping tool?:(

  6. Phew - just squeaked in under the wire. This month has totally run away from me - it's been a pretty busy time with kitchen renovations and yoga school opening, so have had to resort to submitting an old entry for my Lemony Peach Cake - still with peach season just around the corner it seems pretty timely :-)

    Thanks for hosting.
