How about LESS food recipes.  Of today's list of INSTRUCTABLES, about half are just recipes. How about categories that we can opt out of?

Why Vegan Is Good?

Here are four reasons that make me cook and eat vegan, and most important – enjoy it: Vegan is Healthy - Eating vegan and fresh food several times per week will make you lose weight, look better, be full of energy and feel better. Go back to the roots. Vegan is more Sustainable - Conventional livestock farming is the most polluting, water using, greenhouse gases emitting and cruel industry humans have ever managed to create. And don’t give me that crap about pesticides and migrant workers picking the vegetables – buy seasonal (see recipes for autumn-winter, spring-summer or all season meals) and local products. It’s your choice who you’re giving your money to after all! Vegan brings Cultures together - Vegan meals are dominant menu in all ancient cultures – from India and the Middle East, through South East Asia, the Americas, Europe and Africa. Vegan is a Challenge - My first rule – never follow a recipe to the letter. Use your imagination and creativity, change it according to your personal taste, improvise and share your experience. And here I am putting together a cookbook with easy vegan recipes and willing to share experience!

I get seriously tired of the same old things. I want to branch out a bit.What should I learn? What are your favorite things to cook?What are your favorite things to eat?I think my next big thing will be scalloped potatoes.

It is important to note that we're looking for creative and traditional recipes - keep in mind that just because it has pasta it doesn't mean it's Italian. ;) We're giving away a Kindle Fire, Bialetti Espresso Makers and cannoil forms - check out the official contest page for more information. The contest will be open 4/29 - 5/13 so get to cooking - this one will be over before you know it!

Show me the chicken!

Today we're launching a new Chicken Recipes Contest, and I wanted to invite you to enter! Typically, I would have launched this as a Scoochmaroo Challenge, but you all have been so responsive to these challenges, we decided to turn them into full-blown contests.  Then I realized that you wouldn't get the normal update from me about the challenge, and might not know we're running it at all - oh no!  So from now on I'll do my best to keep you apprised of the contests in the Food & Living categories, and herein create a forum for everyone to chat about it as well. So break out your chicken recipes - I know this seems exclusive to vegetarians, but I also know how creative our audience can get - and show us what you've got to win some sweet knives generously donated from Wusthof.  These are the same knives I use in my home and here at the Instructables HQ! We're even giving away one special prize to one author who submits the most entries!  So enter now, check in often, and vote for your favorites.  Contest closes August 27.

Giving Credit for a Recipe

I have a recipe that I really like and on which I would like to do an instructable.  My question is about giving proper credit.  I looked around at some recipes on here and didn't see anything about giving credit.  So the recipe I want to use is a common basic one, but the one I use, I found on a blog.  So do I reference the blog in my instructable?  Is it different because I'm just teaching how to make the recipe?

Homeroom is a specialty Mac & Cheese restaurant opening soon in Oakland.  Even better, they're running a mac and cheese recipe challenge!  You don't have to be local to enter (or win), and the best recipes will be included in their upcoming cookbook.  I suggest posting your mac'n'cheese Instructable, then sending along the link as your entry - we'd like to see what you've made, too! Details from the Homeroom website: The winning dish will be selected from a group of 10 finalists, who will be invited to show off their mac and cheese at cook-off party held right here in Oakland. But don’t worry out-of-towners, if we choose your recipe one of us will cook it up for you. But there’s a catch. For your recipe to qualify for the grand prize or for a spot in the cookbook, you must follow a few simple rules: * You must use only California cheeses in your mac and cheese. * All recipes must be based on 1 pound of dried pasta. * The retail cost of all your ingredients must equal or be less than $20. This includes pasta, milk, butter, flour, cheeses and whichever veggies or meats you decide to include. * Email your entries no later October 15, 2010.

Non Stop! Caramel cookies recipe

Hi! About 6 moths ago I was visiting family in Germany, and my uncle had these weird cookies (well not really weird, unusual) called Non Stop! Caramel;=/sweet/&f;=all/ Now, I live in Finland, and these cookies aren't available here, so I was wondering if anyone had ever tried to mimic these or had some suggestions what recipes would work. I don't have a lot of free time, so trying out a hundred recipes is not an option. There is another thing. Since then, I have also become a vegan, so if I were to find these in a store, I couldn't eat them, so I sorta need to do this myself. So if anyone has eaten these cookies and knows a recipe for something in the same direction, or can make up a copycat recipe, it would be much appreciated. The recipe doen't have to be vegan btw, I can convert it myself. Thanks in advance,  - Kalle

Has scoochmaroo plagiarized Emeril Lagasse's work?  You be the judge! I, for one, would find it hard to believe that Emeril would poach from smoochmaroo, and that's not considering the six year difference in dates.

Picture of Ingredients. How important is it to you?

Do you count on seeing a picture of the ingredients or do you rely on the actual "List of ingredients" in a recipe? I frequently make recipes up as I go along, taking fastidious notes of what was added along the way and taking a lot of pictures. Because of this proclivity, I've found taking a picture of the ingredients (before the recipe is completed) is a total waste of time.  That wouldn't be so bad, except that I often run out of an ingredient used in the recipe and have nothing to take a picture of.  For example: I'm making an peach pie and the voice in my recipe box shouts "Baja! Remember the fresh strawberries you have in the frig? I bet they would taste great with those peaches!" So, of course I listen to my exuberant recipe-box-voice and add the strawberries... but now I'm out of fresh strawberries... and the closest grocery store where I might be able to find them is 2 hours away.  UGH.  All opinions appreciated... unless you want to criticize my loquacious recipe box.  It happens to be very close friends with my tool box, who is fiercely protective and carries a blunt, heavy weapon object at all times.  It could get ugly, so please don't say I didn't warn you. ;-)

Looking for a Jägerschnitzel Recipe

So the other day, I went to "Spring Fest," a local German American Society event. Naturally, the beer was great (some types I've never even heard of before), but... the food was incredible :) I'm looking for someone's own recipe for jägerschnitzel (as opposed to something I find on a large recipe database somewhere on the interweb). Perhaps it's my red meat deprived diet - but it was incredibly delicious and I'd like to try making it myself along with some red cabbage sour kraut (equally delicious).

Help! I need a recipe for lamb with dried limes...

Hi folks, the holidays must have cooked my noggin. I could have sworn that there was a recipe on 'ables that involved lamb baked with dried limes. So while in London I procured said limes as this cooking looked so very, very good. Now back at my lair in Wales and can I find the recipe anywhere? Er, no. From memory it was baked low and slow, any help would make my taste-buds sing. Best wishes to everyone for 2009. Bosh.

Cooking contest

Drinkmorecoffee's instructable on cooking got me thinking... I think that our next mini contest should be a cooking contest. The rules being that you make something you've never made before, but without using a recipe. So instead of getting a pomodoro sauce recipe online, you make it yourself, using what you think it needs, and then make an instructable on how to make it. Of course you can use the basic sponge recipe like drinkmorecoffee provides, but from there you make it your own. What do you think?Well, the contest is up:Have Fun!
