Introducing: Food of the Month Club

Attention foodies!  Something new and exciting is coming to La Cocina de Leslie in 2012!  And I would love for you to join me.

It's meme kind of thing called The Food of the Month Club and it's something I've wanted to do pretty much since I started this blog.

At the beginning of each month, I'll announce the Food of the Month.  All you have to do is cook up something fabulously delicious using the Food of the Month as one of the main ingredients and post the recipe on your blog sometime during that month.  At the end of the month, I'll post a Round-Up of all of the recipes with links to your blogs.

And the best thing about The Food of the Month Club is that it will feature easy to find  ingredients that many of us always have on hand in our pantry or fridge.

I hope you'll join me in this new adventure.

Be sure to visit La Cocina de Leslie on January 2nd to discover the very first Food of the Month!
