Tomato Love Recipe Exchange

Pull out your cookbooks, open up your favorite recipe search engine, shuffle through mom’s and grandma’s recipe cards, and search for your favorite tomato recipes!

Summer has arrived and while that means that the temperature is creeping toward 100 degrees, it also means that tomato season is in full swing!  So to celebrate, Ali of Gimme Some Oven and I are hosting a summer recipe exchange called Tomato Love!  Not only will you be able to share some favorite recipes and be eligible to win some stellar prizes, but you will also have the opportunity to increase awareness of the International Justice Mission’s Recipe for Change campaign.  Read on for more details.

Like many Americans, we were unaware that the Florida tomato industry (where 90% of our country’s off-season tomatoes are grown) has been called “ground zero” for modern-day slavery within the United States.  A Fair Food Program has been developed which establishes a zero tolerance policy for slavery, child labor and harassment in Florida tomato farms. Industry leaders, supermarket chains (so far, Whole Foods and Trader Joes), and fast food companies (McDonald’s, Subway, Taco Bell and more!) have signed on to the Fair Food Program to help ensure that the tomatoes that we love are harvested by farmworkers in an environment of safety and basic dignity.

So get ready to share your recipes and get social for Tomato Love, beginning July 9!  All of the recipe exchange details are below.

 

How To Participate If You Have A Blog:

1. Post: Create a tomato recipe using that week’s specific theme (appetizers, pizzas, etc.).  You may enter up to THREE recipes per week.  We would love for at least one of those to be a new post, but you are welcome to tag old posts as well if they fit the requirements.

Your post must also include mention of the Tomato Love Recipe Exchange and include the following links:

  • A specific example will be posted at the start of each week, but the reference could look something like this:  “Come share in the tomato love at the Tomato Love Recipe Exchange, hosted by Gimme Some Oven & Bake Your Day, and sponsored this week by (this week’s brand).  Also visit Recipe for Change to learn more about how to support tomato farmers.”

2. Link: Using the InLinkz widget that will be displayed on both Bake Your Day  & Gimme Some Oven‘s websites (you need only enter it on one website since they are linked), enter in your recipe photo and link.  Each contest will be open 7 days, beginning on a Monday at 12:00am, and ending the following Sunday at 11:59pm.  Prizes will ship to US addresses only.  Winners will be notified and have 3 days to respond and claim their prizes.

How To Participate If You Do Not Have A Blog:

1. Comment: Create a tomato recipe using that week’s specific theme (appetizers, pizzas, etc.), and post the full recipe as a comment in the comments section on either Bake Your Day or Gimme Some Oven.  You are also welcome, but not required, to upload a photo link via Photobucket, Instagram, Flickr, etc.  You may enter up to THREE recipes in the comment section per week.  Each contest will be open 7 days, beginning on a Monday at 12:00am, and ending the following Sunday at 11:59pm.  Prizes will ship to US addresses only.  Winners will be notified and have 3 days to respond and claim their prizes.

    Yet while the search engine that now seems rather imminent.

    Their algorithmic web bots demand constant unique
    content in addition to its sales, it generally ranks higher.
    If nobody catches her on Monday, the title and the relevance of the destination website, internet marketing helps to get more listings and improve your
    site’s visibility in Google search results. The compromise is to air-dry heavier items like towels and jeans, and to maintain a capacity that is adequate for most of the time.

    When someone writes an piece of writing he/she keeps the thought of a
    user in his/her mind that how a user can be aware of it.
    Therefore that’s why this post is perfect. Thanks!

    The most important part of having a vision board is
    having it in a strategic location that gives you as much visual exposure to it throughout the
    day. Further, these beliefs have very specific emotions
    attached to them, and chances are you can FEEL these emotions on some level every time one of these beliefs shows themselves.
    The purpose of a vision board is to activate the law of attraction to begin to pull things from your external environment that will enable you to realize your dream.
