Here's how it works:

Just take a postcard of any type, store bought or home made and write a recipe on the back. It can be a recipe for anything...soup, dessert, cocktails, side dish, whatever you prefer, but it must start with the letter of the swap. This swap's letter is "A". Apple Strudel, Aunt Ann's Pea Soup, Aardvark Stew... you get the idea! You can cheat and do something like Carol's Pea Soup, but let's try to keep those at a minimum.

If you are going to make your postcards, please make something that you'd like to receive. Take time making it, and make it nice!

You will send one (1) postcard with a recipe to four (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. Short recipes are easiest to fit on the PC so they can be read easily

The postcard 4x6" or 5x7" in size and sent naked..

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

This swap is newbie friendly, as long as they are serious about completing the swap, and have a well filled out profile. They need to start swapping some where!

I will be checking profiles and dashboards before I assign partners so make sure that you are up to date and you have no recent ones or unexplained threes!

*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 country :)

What does "sent naked" mean? I'm new at the post card thing :)

I have local p.c. With recipes print on them. Can we just put a sweet note instead of an extra recipe?

@rileyzoe It means to send them just like you would a regular envelope, not in an envelope

@mmdurio That is not swap works really, I'm sorry. The postcards should be the kind that have a picture on the front, then the recipe on the back, and the recipe needs to begin with the letter of the swap, like it says in the swap description.

Can you let us know what the minimum requirements are to join this in the future? I'm new but would love to get in on this! I have a culinary degree and tons of recipes!

Yay, 12 participants so far, I'm so excited! These will be great addition to my growing alphabet recipe collection.
