Who wants a free PR4 backlink?

    I have an external PR4 blog (email me if you want the URL) that's been around for a few years that details authentic cookie recipes from countries around the world. I've covered (some through research and some through contributed recipes) 62 countries so far. I'm looking to expand the reach of the countries and add more authentic recipes to the countries already covered.

    Some of the most popular recipes are Alfajores de Manjar Blanco from Peru (by far and away the most popular!), Mantecaditos from Puerto Rico, Gaufrettes from France, Nestle Toll House cookies from the US, Nan e-Nokhodchi from Iran, Torticos de Moron from Cuba, Tawa-Tawas from Bolivia -- you get the gist.

    I'm always looking for people who want to either submit a recipe or do a guest post. In either case, your name and URL of your choice will be displayed on the post. If you have other relevant hubs/blogs/articles, I'll allow up to 3 outgoing links. (All links are DoFollow, BTW.) And if your hub or blog or site is really, really relevant, maybe even a permanent spot on my blogroll. smile The blog gets traffic all year, but the majority of its visitors are from November through the winter months, with an obvious HUGE spike in December.

    I was going to post this in the Food forum, but you don't need to be a foodie to have an authentic recipe. Many of the ones on my site are submitted recipes that came from someone's grandmother, mother or wife.

    Let me know if you're interested.

    YES YES YES please big_smilebig_smile - I have a number of food hubs, and love to ransack my grannies' cookbooks for old treasures. Also I share a blog that highlights recipes. We are starting to get some traffic and everybody comments on the recipes. We would love to expand into more ethnic dishes - have access to some fantastic Northern and West Coast First Nations dishes. Wanna have a potlatch?
    My blog partner and I  would love to get involved!

      Salmon tartare cookies? Hmmmm....NO! smile But if you want the link, Misha, call some of your Russian relatives and get a recipe. I'll write up the post and give you the link to whatever blog/landing page you would like.

      Right now for Russian cookies I've got Kosh Tili and Pryanik.

        He-he, had to go and check for myself. Found a factual error. "pryanosti" never meant "pryaniki", it always meant spices. smile

        I recognized what you called kosh-tili, not sure if I ever heard this name. I know them under "khvorost" smile

        And thanks for your offer, I might take you up on it smile

          The Kosh-Tili comes from Tartarstan and means "birds tongues". Maybe broader Russia calls them "khvorost"??? And I thought Pryaniki was basically Russian gingerbread???? Help!

    Wow. That is a really generous offer. Now I only would have to find English translations for Mohnstrudl, Apfelstrudl, Powidltatschgerln, Palatschinken, Topfengolatschn etc. (all of them Eastern Austrian/Bohemian desserts).

    I have a couple of Hubs that use Guinness - they are traditional British Recipes with an Irish slant...

    Guiness Irish Stew
    Huinness Shepherd's Pie
    Guinness Welsh Rarebit

    and more to come...

    I'm definately interested in your offer...

    Just to clarify, folks, I only cover cookie recipes. No other desserts, sweets or main dishes.

    You don't need to have written anything about them. Just submit to me an authentic and traditional cookie recipe from any country, one that really is part of the country's cuisine, and I will get it up there. You can link back to whatever landing page you want. It doesn't need to be about cookies. I have guest contributors who submitted, let's say, their Grandma's cookie recipe but they didn't have a food blog. So the post would say "Contributed by John Jones, visit his website (website URL)".

    And FYI...I haven't monetized that blog. This is purely for fun and adventure!

    Let's see I open up the box of Betty Crocker cookie mix....

    Usually I'd do almost anything for a free PR4 link. But I don't think this would work!

      Too funny! At least you use the box mix instead of getting those frozen cookie log thingees! smile
