#FoodYearLinkup – May 2016

I’m back with my monthly #FoodYearLinkup the place to share and discover lots of foodie inspiration for events in May. There’s absolutely loads of events this month so hopefully something to inspire you all…

Food Year Linkup May 2016

I’m really hoping that the weather improves for National BBQ week as it’s been hailing here today and snowed last week!

As always we had so many amazing posts linked up last month, I’d really recommend you go and take a look. My favourite were these edible fruit scabs that Sarah from Craft Invaders shared for April Fool’s Day (disgusting aren’t they!). I’m always hugely impressed with how creative everything is on her blog – I’m obsessed with her homemade coloured sugar sprinkles and Christmas spirit.

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 May. We’re back to having a really great selection of events to choose from so hopefully there’s something to inspire everyone.

8-14 May – British Sandwich Week

13 May – International Hummus Day

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 new events into the calendar so make sure you take a look and see what’s new.


  1. Linking up my Vegan Raspberry & Pomegranate Cheesecake as it is definitely going on my list of desserts for our summer BBQ’s!

  2. Have linked up my mini berry cheesecakes, for the Jewish holiday of Shavuot. I realise now I’ve added them to May’s linkup that Shavuot is actually not until 12 June! Happy to wait until next month. Oops.
