It's that time of year again!
You all know how much I love to cook and I'm always on the hunt for new yummy recipes to try. Several years ago I thought, wouldn't it be cool to have a recipe box/book with shared recipes from members from here and thus, Gingerbread's annual recipe exchange was born, going on year 13!
So are you ready to sign up!
Here's how it goes:
~ Everyone who signed up would be responsible for doing at least 2 recipes. You will have to send your 2 recipes to all the other members who participate. Just keep in mind if we have 6 participants that'll be 12 recipe cards you have to do. *But it'll be worth it when you get all your lovely cards!
~ Recipes must be done on recipe cards or recipe card sized paper. For example if you wanted to do yours on the computer that'd be ok as long as you cut them to card size, about 4x6 inch seems to be the standard.
~ I encourage people to embellish their recipe cards, maybe with stickers, pictures, bust out those glitter pens, we like pretty pony recipe cards! Do whatever you like to make your cards as unique and wonderful as you!
~ When you title your recipe put your member name on it. For example I could call mine; "Gingerbread's Italian Creme Cake", that way everyone would remember which cards came from who.
I made a pony themed binder for my cards. But a card box would be a cute idea too. Here's a pic of mine...
Sign-ups will be until 11:59 pm EST, Sat. July 23rd
You will receive participant's addresses by Sun., July 24th
Cards will need to be mailed out no later than Mon., Aug. 15th
I've given 3 weeks to make and ship cards cause I know things still aren't 100% "back to normal" and life is always throwing us stuff. However, this is always a fun swap more people can do since it doesn't call for as much purchasing or expensive shipping. If for any reason your cards will be late getting mailed please message me so at least I know and don't think you've dropped out.
If you are interested in joining message me your address by the sign-up deadline. Requirements are that you must have been a member here for at least 2 months or have accumulated some positive feedback for me to consider. This is a good opportunity for some newer members who haven't accumulated any feedback yet to have a chance to earn some for future swaps and trades.
Also, please let me know if you have any particular allergies to certain foods. It's not required that all participant's recipes take these into account but it would be the nice pony-thing to do. Please at least include some of your recipes that all participants could use. I will note next to each person's name any allergies.
I look forward to seeing everyone's cards! The ones we exchanged in previous swaps were lovely and I can't wait to do this again.
