I don't know about you guys, but for me autumn is always so much more than changing leaves and a crisp chill in the air. It's the smell of homemade bread, the warmth of the stove, and for some reason, the faint taste of cinnamon and clove seems to ride the very wind. What does the change in weather bring to your kitchen? I want to know, so let's swap.
The idea of this swap is to hand make a cookbook of your favorite "Autumn Inspired" recipes for your partner. Food and meals that bring a warmth to the belly and the soul. (can you tell cooking is kind of spiritual for me? laughs)
The cookbook can be any size you want, and put together in anyway you feel inspired to. Type or handwrite recipes, add pictures of the food, or add autumn embellishments. As for specific guidlines, your cook book should contain recipes for:
Due to the nature of this swap, you will have to have a minimum of a 4.7 rating and no more than 1 no send. I don't want to have any dissapointed swappers. This swap is international. If you get an international partner, make sure to convert your recipes to the proper measurements, or include a conversion chart in the back of the cookbook. This swap is more about sharing YOUR favorite recipes with your partner, but if you would like to make it more special, you can research your swap partner's tastes and find recipes for them. Let's aim for hearts here, people and make some beautiful and yummy cookbooks. I'm giving a lot of time between the sign up date and send date so that you have plenty of time to do a good job.
I have had a few newbie requests for this swap, and I really hate to say no to anyone, BUT, making a book, even a cookbook, is a pretty involved swap. I've been burned by people on involved swaps before, and nothing hurts my feelings more than to spend all that time and energy on a project and then get nothing in return, so I'm going to have to say No Newbies on this one. It's nothing personal, I'm really sorry, but I think that the minimum rating on this one is really important. Autumn is a long season, maybe someone will start a newbie friendly swap! I hope that htey feel free to do so.
