Hey everyone!! I have received a lot of good feedback for the recipe postcard swap. After talking with Rosemarie, aka, YarnTails, and "stealing" her idea, I will be starting a bi-monthly recipe postcard swap.

Here's how it works:

Just take a postcard, homemade or store bought, and send a recipe on it. It can be a recipe for anything. Soup, dessert, cocktails, mac and cheese, whatever you prefer, but it must start with the letter of the swap. This week's letter is "B". Banana Pudding, Beer Battered Shrimp, Buffalo Wings, even a Bahama Mama. You can cheat and do something like Bernadette's Chicken Soup, but let's try to keep those at a minimum.

You will send the (1) postcard with a recipe to (4) partners.

The postcard itself does not have to have a recipe on it. The postcard can be of anything at all, but instead of writing a note you will write a recipe.

The postcard should be stamped and mailed. Do not use an envelope unless your swap partner requests it.

This swap is open to all, International is encouraged so we get lots of different recipes, newbies are okay with a completed profile. No recent no-sends, no ratings less than 4.7. (Or PM me if you have a good reason)

Don't forget to put the name of the swap and your name on the postcard so your partner can rate you!!

*One last note. The alphabet idea is just to give us a direction. If you miss a few or if we've already started and you didn't start with us, don't be afraid to start up. The idea is to spread delicious recipes across the world :)

This is a great idea! A note to my partner: I am a vegetarian, so a vegetarian recipe would be ideal, but not 100% necessary. I have plenty of non-veggie friends to share recipes with. :-) Thanks!

im thinking about signing up but i know that i dont have more than one good recipe starting with 'B'!! can i send the same recipe to all four people? its a good-un'..

The postcards are going to different people so they don't have to have different recipes on them... I'm pretty sure most people will send the same recipe to all 4 partners...

Dumb question...When was the A swap? If anyone also missed it, can we do a private swap. I want to make a book of all the recipes! Thanks!

Susi -

I didn't miss it but I would be happy to swap - I can always use recipes :-)

Susi 07/16/2008 #

thanks manxkity, I appreciate it. I already have a card ready for you!

I cheated today.. I have spent a couple of hours readying myself for the whole alphabet! I luckily have a great cookbook that has a recipe for each letter of the alphabet! Now I just have to get the postcards bought or made to write and send! (if anyone gets stuck on a letter they can PM me, if it's ok with the coordinator!)

i love this idea but my fears were realized in the recipes starting with A swap. some people send recipes using ingredients which are only available in their own country - like cool whip?!?!? what is that? So i couldn't even make the recipe i received. hmmmm. unfortunately i don't have a constructive idea about how to remedy that problem. thanks for hosting tho - i do love to get mail

if you google homemade cool whip you can get a decent recipe for it.

I am new to this site and wanted to participate in this swap. How do I find out what addresses I send my post cards to? Any help for a newbie is greatly appreciated! :D

cool whip is basically just whipped cream :)

To my partners - I'm so sorry I sent my cards out late! I forgot I had signed up for this swap and it landed on my vacation. I'm actually on a phone right now! Hope you enjoy the recipe regardless. Michelle :)
