Surprise Announcement: Sugar High Friday

[Many thanks to all who particpated, the round-up is live!]

Lots of surprises to announce today!

SURPRISE SURPRISE: The unlikely Veggie Evangelist is September's host for Sugar High Friday, the sweet grandmommy of food blogging events.

[What's Sugar High Friday? In October 2004, Jennifer, Canada's very own Domestic Goddess, launched the first-ever blogging extravaganza for sweet tooths: all of ten food bloggers played with white chocolate. Then there were SHF2 - SHF21. Fast forward nearly two years to Delicious Days' just finished SHF22, Can You Can?: 52 jams and jellies from all over the world!]

SURPRISE: In September, Sugar High Friday makes an extra-warm welcome to cooks who feel tempted to participate but don't have food blogs (hello Connie?! Betty?! Alaska Carrots?! Nan & Anonymous?! I know you're out there!) or blog on other topics, like my pal Tamara Nicol at Luminous Lens who so graciously created the logo for this month's Sugar High Friday. Would you like to be a food-blogger-for-a-day? All the detail is at this special spot, which is also where your recipes will be posted.

BIG SURPRISE: Sugar High Friday's very first blogger-for-a-day has already sent in her entry! Yummy!!

SURPRISE: The theme for September's Sugar High Friday is ... ta da ... Surprise Inside. Let the creative juices flow! What's your inside surprise, a secret ingredient? a chocolate-covered raspberry? an almond in rice pudding? a gush of lava chocolate? [Are vegetables required? At Sugar High Friday, are you kidding?! Of course not! But since this Is A Veggie Venture, vegetables are allowed, and warmly welcomed, so long as they're tucked inside something sweet!]

SURPRISE: At random, one participant will be selected to receive a special ... you know what's coming, yes? ... surprise gift!
