If you participated in the last round, welcome back! You are going to add 2-3 new recipes to the book you have (if you haven't already) and send it out when partners are assigned.

For the new participants: purchase or otherwise obtain a Composition book (the marble-looking black and white ones), and decorate it or cover it if you like.

On the first page write your name and the swap name and in the back write your address and a note to return the journal home to you when it is full. Write one recipe to share with others and include a short letter on a separate piece of paper telling why you chose this particular recipe.

This will be a bi-monthly swap to give the journals time to travel. Also because I haven't received the one I was supposed to get yet.

Next month in a separate swap you will take that journal you received and write a recipe and pass it on. We will keep going as long as there is interest. Please only put in realistic and usable recipes, the point is for people to find cool new recipes to try out.

The fine print:The minimum qualification to participate is a 4.5. This has changed due to the sheer number of non-sent books that I've had to replace for the US version. Newbies are welcome as long as they have 5 mailed swaps under their belts. No 1-3s in the last 3 months. No exceptions. Please don't flake, this is someone else's recipe book you've got, after all.

If you can't participate for a round, please send the book back to the original owner and we'll get yours back to you.

When you get your partner's book, send them a PM to let them know you've received it.

You will have until May 1st to sign up, mail it out by May 11th. If there are any questions, please ask.

I just got the recipe book that was sent to me yesterday, so it really might taken a while to travel. I sent mine to Pyxidragon at about the same day as the one sent to me. It's a US-Netherlands swap so I hope you get it soon..

Hi...i live in the UK and I am not sure what type of book to get..is it A4 plain paper?

Hi Charlote, if you go to Amazon.co.uk and type in "composition notebook", that should give you a better idea as to what I'm asking for.

Hi, I leave in Spain, I went to amazon and type "composition notebook", that gave me an idea, but my question is : I have a moleskine notebook similar, it measures 210 X 130 mm. Is it ok????
