[community profile] rawfood is for everyone who is interested in raw food, whether they are vegans, vegetarians or omnivores. Perhaps you eat 100 % raw food, or perhaps you're just interested in increasing the amount of raw food in your diet. Whatever your approach, you are equally welcome there.

(I'm endlessly amused by the tag in this entry.)

Hello! I have recently created a new comm for people who are interested in bartering/trading homemade and handmade items with others. This is not a community for buying and selling, but for bartering/trading only.

[community profile] bartering

Community rules are available on the comm profile.

Please introduce yourself when you sign up and let people know what you're offering/looking for.

This is a very small comm right now, and will only be successful if lots of people join and get involved. So if you're interested in (legal!) gray-market type dealings, freecycling, bartering, trading, art, baking, and all those other sorts of things, please join us!
amadi: An appetizing array of various fruits and vegetables. (Food)

Four serving dishes full of different foods are set on a table, with spoons ready for service. In the corner is the caption The Dinner Party, food,  friends, fun

[community profile] dinnerparty: A recipe exchange with a spin

The Dinner Party is a bimonthly recipe exchange run much like fanwork exchanges. Each exchange has a theme, participants are matched & prepare a menu for one another with recipes, stories, photos, music or whatever they'd like, to suit the theme.

The theme for January/February is "Dinner with Friends." Sign-ups for the first exchange are open through January 21.

Hi all, not posted here in some time but I would like to pimp out two new communities!

First up we have [community profile] theoldbluebox, which I co-maintain with a friend. We're both quite unhappy with the changes at LJ and the way that communities are being affected, and so we've imported it here to Dreamwidth! Here you can share all Doctor Who-related news, pictures, macros and squee (which reminds me; I really must post a picture of the Adipose stress toy I recieved for Christmas)! We are also looking to be affilliated with some of the other Doctor Who communites out there, as long as the maintainers are nice, and not giant Vampire Fish or something!

Do you enjoy pickling and preserving home-grown produce, or taking those leftover onions and turning them into a wonderful onion and rosemary jam? I noticed a distinct lack of communities for creative homemakers and cooks, and so I bring you [community profile] in_a_pickle. Please join and share your successes, failures, advice, recipes, pictures and vegetable/fruit/herb garden tips!

I was sitting here, eating my thai noodles from a package that I had modified with cabbage and mushrooms to be healthier and more delicious, and contemplating making Kalhua Cake that requires a box of cake mix, and I realized that I wanted a community that has recipes that are made easier by using a base of prepared mixes or foods but are still delicious and healthy.  [community profile] notfromscratch  is that place!

Post your recipes, your questions, your ideas!
sally_maria: (Chocolate)
[personal profile] sally_maria
Come and talk about your favourites at the new community [community profile] chocolate_lovers.

There are so many wonderful brands and styles of chocolate out there, let us know about the ones we may not have discovered yet. If you have a favourite chocolate shop, whether online or off, tell us where to find it.

What's the most unusual flavour of chocolate you've tried, and did you like it?

Or perhaps you love the everyday brands that you ate growing up - they may bring back fond memories.

[community profile] green_living is for those interested in a greener and more natural lifestyle, or simple lifestyle, whether for health, political, or financial reasons.

Similar communities (I have no affiliation with these, but think that they could use some activity as well!):

[community profile] environment - Environmental News and Discussion

[community profile] permaculture - Food From Sustainable Landscapes

[community profile] gettingtoenough - Radical Simplicity

[community profile] homeeconomics101 - Home Economics 101

[community profile] eco_parent - Green Parenting

(Also, there's no tags for "nature" or "environment" yet, if those could be added that would be awesome!)

Here are some small communities I run that I'd like to see embiggened. Please feel free to join and start participating!

[community profile] literaryicons is a place to submit and request text icons based on works of literature, especially those that don't have television shows and movies based on them. It can be hard to express your love for a fandom that doesn't have pretty pictures and hot actors/actresses! I'm working on some Lois McMaster Bujold icons now.

[community profile] newgotham is a community for people in, around, and traveling to Chicago. I've been trying to post links to free festivals and gatherings, reviews of cool businesses and places, and bits of Chicago history.

[community profile] singleserving is a cooking community for small batch cooking. Live alone? Have a small kitchen? Just starting out? Jump in here! Post recipes, experiences, and requests. I did a post on potatoes that a lot of folks found helpful, and I'm going to do a write up on rice next. I started this community to fulfill a request, but honestly I'm more used to large batch cooking, so I'd really love if more people were posting recipes and tips.

[community profile] labyrinthine is a fan community for Sarah Monette, primarily her Doctrine of Labyrinth books but also her Booth/Bone Key books.

Do you have questions having to do with managing a household, be it one on your own, with a partner/partners, a family, friends, strangers? Questions like "how do I remove cat pee from my carpets", or "something just came off the wall and I have two left hands, WTF do I do???"? Or maybe, "what food do I really need to keep in stock?", or "I have x amount of money and need to serve y people dinner - anyone?"?

Or have you found the perfect solution to keeping walls from getting moldy and want to share it?

This is your community.

 I'd really like to pimp my community, [community profile] pencils.

Pencils is a place where you can post:

Digital Art
Traditional Art
Crafts/Baked Goods
Film & Animation
Original Fiction

The purpose of the community is to get people to share their work and be able to receive feedback - comments, critiques, etc.  

Journal prompts are provided weekly, or you can use your own prompts/prompts from other communities.

bake: (ice-cream lover)
[personal profile] bake

[community profile] gourmandise is a community where framboise and I share recipes of all things sweet and delicious. It's not only about recipes, but also about pretty food photography. We could say it's a "cooking inspiration" community :D

The community is pretty new, there isn't much content yet, but we'd love to welcome new members and see the community growing! So, don't hesitate to join :)

Hi, I've recently been added as a maintainer for the community [community profile] vegetarian 

We're a fairly open community, for any vegetarian or vegan related discussion (at the moment, we mostly just have recipes).  Currently we are quite small, but would like to expand into being a general community for all veg*ns and veg*n friendly people on dw, hence the promotion.

So if you're vegetarian, or just interested in any sort of veg*nism, feel free to stop by and say hi, ask a question, or post your favourite vegetarian link or recipe.

Hi all, I've created a community called [community profile] cakedecorating , and it pretty much does exactly what it says on the tin.

If you're interested in fancy decorated cakes, from cupcakes to wedding cakes to crazy sculptural pieces (a la Ace of Cakes) then you'll probably like [community profile] cakedecorating ! I also hope this will become a place to share tips and tricks, as well as reviews of tools and books, and discussion of decorated cakes people may find IRL or on the internet - cake wrecks are just as welcome as show-offs and gawking/inspiration.

Again, anyone is welcome - you don't need to be a cake decorator, just have an appreciation for or interest in decorated cakes!
