I love scavenger hunts and I love to cook. I said to myself "why not combine them". Yes I talk to myself.

Anyway back to the subject. For this swap you will send your partner 10 recipes. They can be on cute cards, or typed, or handwritten, whatever. Here's the catch. You must send 10 recipes out of the following 15 categories. You cannot use the same category twice nor can you use the same recipe twice. Please be sure your partner knows which recipe goes to which category.

A recipe that... 1. uses leftovers 2. contains no meat 3. is for a soup 4. is for a dessert 5. contains corn 6. was found in a magazine 7. you've never tried 8. is your favorite recipe 9. can be made in a crock pot or slow cooker 10. is for an appetizer 11. contains cheese 12. is for bread or muffins 13. contains fruit 14. is for a dip 15. is really bad for you-but tastes soooo good

Okay. There it is. Here's the rest. Newbies welcome. Ratings over 4.5 please. I will angel if need be but I know everyone will follow through. This is international since postage should not be much.

Any questions just post them or contact me. I hope everyone has fun.

super idea!!!!!

Great idea- I love scavenger hunts and have been wanting to collect some good recipes so this is the perfect swap for me! :-)

Sorry the list is in paragraph form. I've tried 3 times to fix it and the machine keeps putting it like that. It looks fine when I'm on the edit screen and as soon as I hit the button it goes back like that. I guess we'll just have to make do. Again Sorry. Thanks to all who have signed up so far. I think we'll have fun.

AAARRRGGGHHH! I was down to only three swaps left!! Now I've had to put this one on my watch list, because I don't dare sign up for anymore until I finish all three remaining ones--I had a goal!

This'll be my reward for being good! Recipes are my absolute downfall! LOL!

great minds think alike, I have been contemplating a similar swap! Sounds like fun, I'm in!!

I was so excited I already completed my recipes! I received a wonderful printer/scanner for Christmas and this was the PERFECT project for it! :D

I joined just in time! YAY! To my Partner: Please don't put recipes on recipe cards for me, I don't use them--I have a terrific custom recipe book/journal from another swap that takes regular 8.5x 11 sheets--just how I like them, and I'd love to use these recipes in that book. Also, as a chef for the past 25 years I have a zillion recipes--but I'd love ones from your family favorites! With little notes about who they come from or how they came about. Copies of handwritten recipes from your Grandma, etc. would be an absolute treasure! Thanks!

Mamabenus--to make the list not in paragraph form, just hit Enter twice after each line.



The spaces.

Yeah I tried that...looked great but when I hit the button to be finished it posted as you see it. Gotta love computers. You know what they say "to err is human-to really fowl things up requires a computer" Oh well what can we do?

My first swap!! I'd love my cards to be 6x6 inches if possible to fit in with some I have just done on ukscrappers.... For my swappees info, we are a family of 5 (3 young children) without any allergies and little time for cooking although I LOVE to cook!! it would be great to have a picture included and both sides decorated if poss. I guess I'll work on a similar format unless requested otherwise x

I'm with twobluecrows... They don't need to be on cards for me. In fact, I'd prefer 8.5x11 pages.

Please no recipes with fish or other sea food, thanks!

lucylemon 01/ 7/2009 #

please don't send me any recipes with meat (except chicken), and no fish either please. Thanks!

Marilyn - Just wanted to let you know that I'm shipping out your recipes tomorrow in the mail. They'll be coming to you from Raleigh, NC. I hope you enjoy!

Aww man...I hope you'll host another one of these! I hate when I find swaps that have already closed...it sounds like such fun.
