#FoodYearLinkup – January 2016

Happy New Year!!

I’m still pondering my New Year’s resolutions, I’ll probably have them set by the end of the day. Have you made any?

While I’m still mulling it over I thought I’d share January’s #FoodYearLinkup, the place to share and discover posts about foodie events in January.

Food Year Linkup January 2016

My pick from last month’s linkup

There were so many lovely festive recipes linked up in December and my absolute favourite was this Christmas spirit from Sarah at Craft Invaders. It’s just such a lovely idea – Christmas spirit in a bottle – can you get any more festive than that?


So what’s the theme this month?

As always, I’d love you to come and link up any foodie posts relating to the events in the Food Blogger’s Calendar for January. Once again we’ve got a pretty quiet month, it seems everyone is still recovering from Christmas. As a little bonus as well as the events listed below you can also add any healthy recipes to help people kick-start their post-Christmas diets (I know I need to!).

1 January – New Year’s Day

1-31 January – Veganuary

1-31 January – Dry January

24-30 January – Breakfast Week

25 January – Burn’s Night

If there’s an event missing from the calendar that you’d like to link up a post for, that’s absolutely fine, just make sure you let me know what the event is in the comments so I don’t get confused 🙂 .

To join in with the #FoodYearLinkup…

  1. Click the “add your link” button and add your link with a picture to entice everyone to come and have a look.
  2. To make my life easier I’d appreciate it if you could leave me a quick comment letting me know which event you’re linking up for (it helps me to tweet them at the right time).
  3. Join me in visiting the other linkers making sure you comment on at least one (I’m more than happy for you to link up several posts, but if you do you should go and comment on at least one other post for each one you link).

I’d also love it if you’d add the #FoodYearLinkup badge to your post so your readers know where to come to find lots of other fun foodie posts (you’ll find the code towards the bottom of this post).

Throughout the month I’ll be tweeting every entry and if you tweet me (@CharlottesLK) using the #FoodYearLinkup hashtag to let me know you’ve linked up I’ll make sure I include you in the tweet. I’ll also be pinning every entry on my dedicated #FoodYearLinkup board and may include my favourites in round up posts for a selection of events throughout the year. The tweets and round up posts may also include images from your post. If you’d rather they didn’t then just let me know in the comments.

So what are you waiting for? Link up up right here…

Before I go…

I’ve been busy adding events into the calendar so make sure you take a look and see what’s new.



  1. This is a linky which I keep meaning to join in, yay I am here! Thank you for hosting x

  2. Hi Charlotte, I’m linking up my Avocado on Toast recipes for #BreakfastWeek 🙂 Eb x

  3. I’ve added another link for Veganuary – My Kabocha Squash stuffed with black quinoa.

  4. Hi, I’ve entered Cranberry & Apricot Cinnamon Rolls for Breakfast week!

  5. Hi – just added another two links for breakfast week, one about brunch and one about sudden breakfasts. I’m getting very hungry looking at the other links especially the sweet potato chilli – possibly followed by poached pears!

    Lovely link up – thanks.

    • Sudden breakfasts! I’m not sure what they are but they sound a little scary, I guess I’ll have to come and have a read and find out more.

  6. Hi Charlotte, I’ve linked up my Guernsey Gâche recipe, although an anytime fruit loaf, it’s delicious toasted for breakfast x

    • I’ve not heard of a Guernsey Gache before, but if it’s a fruit loaf then it’s definitely something I think I’d like!

  7. Hi – just added a picture of a Haggis in the wild linking to my post about Haggis for Burns Night.

    Lots of interesting things to investigate – especially coconut and honey omelette!

  8. Probably obvious, but the Vegan Haggis is for Burns Night 😉 Thanks for the opportunity to share this Charlotte! x

  9. Hi Charlotte, I’m linking up my Slow Cooker Vegetable & Cider Cassoulet for Veganuary. Off to check out those delicious looking breakfast recipes x

    • Thanks Sarah, it sounds delicious. I’m really learning a lot about how amazing and varied vegan food can be at the moment.

  10. Better late than never, I have finally got round to joining again! I’m linking up some breakfast recipes from Three Sons Later and waffles with honey and yogurt from My Kitchen Notebook.
    Thanks for hosting, Charlotte.

    • It’s never too late to join, I’ve had people sneaking an entry in on the last day before. The waffles sounds lovely x

  11. Just linked up some wholewheat vegan cheese scones for Veganuary! Also would make a nice breakfast as they are savoury and have sunflower seeds in!

    Off to look at a few of the other recipes they look lovely!

    Midge 🙂

  12. Linking up a breakfast wrap for breakfast week. Thanks for letting me join in!

  13. Hi Charlotte, we’ve linked up our making marmalade post for breakfast week! Thanks for having us, Sarah x

  14. Happy New Years! I’m joining for the first time this month!

  15. Lovely, and I will try to join in this month too!

  16. I am linking up my Sweet Potato Chilli, Brown Rice and Avocado Salad for #Veganuary and general healthy eating – it’s packed full of superfoods as it was inspired by Jamie Oliver’s TV series on superfoods 🙂 Thanks for hosting such a fab linky! Eb x

  17. Happy New Year! I’m trying to eat more healthily this year but don’t have any strict goals. I have added my spiced wild rice and pea salad which fits with Veganuary.

    • Happy New Year to you too!

      The salad looks delicious, I’m similar to you in that I’m just trying to be a little bit more healthy rather than starting to crazy heathy eating plan (which I usually do) and then completely fail to stick to it!

  18. Oh forget to say I just added a link to my 7 different breakfast post – you probably guessed what for!

  19. The Coconut Chocolate Oats looks very tempting – and I don’t usually like oats!

  20. Happy New Year Charlotte! I’ve just linked in my Energy Balls with dates, apple & almonds – they’d happily sit in the Veganuary or the additional ‘healthy’ recipes given that there is no added sugar or fat in them.

  21. Looking forward to seeing lots of healthy recipes to get the new year off to a good start- I’m trying out Veganuary which should be a challenge!

    • Thanks for joining, your Curry Laksa looks delicious. All the best with Veganuary, I’m quite in awe of anyone who manages it.

  22. Thank you for featuring our recipe 🙂 My New Year resolution is to develop my knowledge of wild food this year and I have just booked myself on a foraging course – I cant wait!

    • Sounds interesting, I’m scared of foraging as I suspect I’d probably poison myself with some dodgy mushrooms. I look forward to reading about what you do, hopefully you’ll be able to teach me a few tricks to avoid that fate!
