tMG recipe zine looking for submissions [Jun. 29th, 2009|10:47 am]
amy lynn


For those of you not on tMG Forums:

Hello All!
On a Forum thread the brainstormed idea of creating a tMG themed recipe zine came up. A few of us has decided we are going to do it and are now looking for submissions. Before you even start thinking about your ideas, WE MUST STRESS THAT THIS COOKBOOK WILL BE VEGAN RECIPES ONLY out of respect for John's vegetarianism and his work for the Farm Sanctuary. If you think it will be funny to submit your recipe for spare ribs, it won't be. Many fans have switched to an animal free diet because of John's work with TFS, and we thought this could be a great help for them, a way to help raise money for TFS, as well as a kick ass zine.

You may be asking, how does tMG factor into a recipe book? Simply put, there will be tMG woven all throughout, but the main aspect is that the recipes will be tMG song inspired, using puns and lyrics to create the titles. If you need help, here a bunch of the lyrics transcribed: [www.themountaingoats.net] Also, look below for examples.


So, having read all of the above, if you are still interested in submitting a recipe, here is what we are looking for in the submission:

*title of recipe - mixing in a tMG pun/lyric
*name of submitter (& forum name if they are on the forums)
*little blurb talking up the recipe, or a short personal story ex: "this one works great for picnics!" or "Some people think it's a little too spicy, so be careful if you can't handle heat"
*ingredients list
*estimation of how many it serves
*directions written in an easy to read format

Now, to make a more cohesive recipe book, we probably won't be able to accept all submissions if it is a similar recipe or similar recipe name, so feel free to submit up to 3 recipes. Below will be a place to ask questions and post the recipe titles you want to submit, so read through and see if someone had a similar title or food creation before you try to lay claim. Please send actual recipes to: starlingzines@gmail.com where they will be compiled and assembled into tMG recipe book. Eventually we'll also be asking for a brief bio for the back, but we'll get to that later in the process when we have more details.

thanks all!

I don't have any recipes to add (still not even completely veg here...) but I will totally be interested in a copy of this. Plus I'm curious to see what other dish names people come up with!

ugh, this is rough to say, but the berry title was already submitted as "fresh berry muffins for you"

the potato one can stay.

what if you make your pie "Bluberry Frost pie" instead?

i have 3 recipes in mind but will have to work on snazzy tmg names for them. (one is a spinach salad, one is for tofu poppers, and one is for this delicious kale/chickpea dish)

when is the due date?

as of now there is no specific "due date" but if you could get them to us by the end of July it would be frickin' sweet. Especially tofu poppers!

I was thinking of sprucing it up a bit with some chocolate or some fruit, or adding an optional sprucing if you wanted more than a vegan sugar pastry cooked in vegan butter :D Though without it, it would be something like a vegan elephant ear, noms!

you could always do a sort of fuit turnover using thawed Phyllo dough or puff pastry, sautee it in butter a bit, and then baked?
