'Power' less cooking event

In this era of high electricity usage, here comes an event that makes you think.

My mixer was repair for a week and that forced me to think what food i can cook without it. That gave a thought to host an event which would feature food that can be cooked without mixer, grinder, oven or microwave...in short without using any electrical appliance.

Everything related to this event-

1) You can post any item- snacks, sweets, meals etc. Provide a link back to the event.

2) Last date for the event is 30th November. Round up would be sometime in the first week of december.

3) Send me your entries to easycrafts@gmail.com with subject as 'Power' less cooking event and your name, blog name and link to the post. Non-bloggers can mail me their recipe with the photo.

4) Feel free to use this logo for the post.

Thats a good idea...coz if any one of our appliances get repair ...we are having a hard time ....An event like this should bring out many ideas from all of us...!!
