Somewhere along the way, we forgot that meals have a simple job…feeding our bellies. I began the NellieBellie Recipe Challenge several years ago as a way to help us get back in touch with the joy of creating meals for our families, learning new kitchen skills, and trying new things with a community of new friends.

I LOVE seeing your creations and engaging with the community. Keep reading to hear what this month's theme is, how to enter, and what you might win! Let's have fun!

What is the NellieBellie Recipe Challenge?

I believe that good food = good conversation = world peace. NellieBellie is on a mission to provide inspiration and education to get more people around their dining room tables on the way to world peace. ♡ This challenge is used to inspire us to try new recipes, educate us on new skills and techniques, & encourage conversation and community in the kitchen. BONUS! You can win fun prizes just from join in. And the Facebook community brings tons of value and joy to our daily lives.

Keep going to learn more about how to enter & rules you need to know. Let's get you in the kitchen!
