#FoodYearLinkup – October 2015

Welcome to October’s #FoodYearLinkup, the place to share and discover posts about foodie events in October.

Food Year Linkup October 2015

Before I get going with this month’s linkup I wanted to share my favourite post from September’s #FoodYearLinkup.

As with August, I was drawn to the Great British Bake Off inspired bakes (oh I’m going to miss it when it finishes next week 🙁 ) and my favourite this month was these cream horns by Angela at Only Crumbs Remain. They just look so perfect and the flavours sound delicious too!.

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 nice picture to entice everyone to come and have a look.
  2. 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).
  3. 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).
  4. 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 it would be great if you would go and comment on/share one other post for each one you link).
  5. Come back again next month and do it all again.

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.

This day I love - Linked


  1. Those cream horns really do look fab.
    I’ve linked up walnut bread, one of my favourite walnut recipes, for National Nut Day and a chocolate orange cake for either or both Cake Week and Chocolate Week.

    • They do don’t they – I have cream horn shaper thingies at home (there’s probabaly a technical term for them) which I got with some other bits from eBay so I really should give them a try!

  2. I’ve linked up my dark chocolate, pear and hazelnut cake which works for cake week, chocolate week or nut day! Thanks for hosting 🙂

  3. I didn’t realise that there were so many food celebration days – thank you for sharing the post on #DiffLinky 🙂

  4. I’ve just added my White Russian cupcakes for cake week and my caramel filled chocolates for chocolate week.

  5. Aw thank you Charlotte for choosing my Cream Horns this month! Quite an honour considering the wealth of fabulous food being shared! I’ve just shared my Blackberry Meringue Pie for British Egg Week.

  6. I love these link ups. I am sorry I don’t stop by more often! It was great to finally meet you at River Cottage! I have linked up my refined sugar-free gluten-free and dairy-free chocolate flapjacks. They are rather delicious yet healthy! Hope to see you again soon!

    • That’s OK. I have a long list of linkups I want to join each month and only seem to end up joining a few!

      Lovely to meet you too, have you got any more events planned?

  7. Hi Charlotte,
    I would like to join in for World egg day and British egg week with my galangal braised pork belly tartine ;).
    I have missed couple of your link up, very glad that I finally have more times to be back to cooking, wooooot wooooot.
    As always, thanks for the link up party and keep up the good work 😉

  8. Hi Charlotte,
    Delighted to be organised enough to take part this month. I have submitted my Breakfast egg muffins for British Egg week. Thanks for hosting. 🙂

  10. Thanks for this Charlotte – great play to link up – great bog too
    Thanks Clare x

  11. Oh yum, those cream horns look delicious. I’ve just linked up with my Pumpkin Pie Jam for Halloween, it’s a great way to use up your leftover hallloween pumpkin flesh.

  12. Hi Charlotte, just linked up another recipe for Halloween, Best Ever Honeycomb x

  13. I’m a bit late adding my raspberry brownies, as they were posted for #NationalChocolateWeek, but hope that’s still OK.

    • That’s absolutely fine, you’re always welcome. It’s open to the 31st and you can link up anything to do with one of the events at any time x

  14. HI Charlotte. It’s been a while since I’ve entered #FoodYearLinkUp. I have some spider cupcakes for Halloween this month. Hope to join in again next month! Thanks for hosting.

    • Welcome back! Loved your spider cupcakes – so much fun.

      Thanks for joining again, I hope to see you here again soon (although no pressure, you can come and go as you please each month).

  15. Hi Charlotte, I”m wheelie late (sorry couldn’t resist) getting my curry posts in this month. Great Linky though #FoodYearLinkup

    • Love a good curry post, I’ll be over soon for a proper look.

      It’s open all month so you can linkup as late as you like (I did a couple right at the last minute this month too!).
