Recipes anyone?

{...and give-away!} I had a great time in St. Paul and can't wait to go back next year. Class sizes were low because it's a new show, but the upside to that is I got to really spend some quality time chatting time with our Minnesota papercrafters, I even shared a sushi dinner with one of them.

So, with a little bit of sadness I say goodbye to my last CKC of the year, which also means it was my last Recipe Card Swap class of the year. I was looking through all the recipe cards I swapped out (I have SO many now...thanks!) and decided to share a few of them with you.

First of all though, I'd like to share my card. I made close to 100 of these. This is my favorite lemon bar recipe. I've tried many, as I love lemon bars, but this is my favorite...perfect ratio of lemon to crust. Oh, makes my lips purse just thinking about biting into one of these!

You can keep your recipe cards super simple, like mine here (just stamped and matted) or go all out like some of the cards below. I'm still in awe of the embossed mixer...can you imagine doing 20 of those? Amazing!

Here are some highlights from the year. I've included a scan of the Spicy Pumpkin cake below, as it's tucked into a pocket. I'd like to thank the following people for sharing these fun cards with me.

  1. Monkey Bread: Linda Comfort

  2. Spicy Pumpkin Bread: Brittany Wade

  3. Stuffed Shells: Emily Aubin

  4. Mashed Potato Salad: Darn! I don't know who made this

  5. Cowboy Caviar: Becky Woods from Mount Pleasant, SC

  6. Chicken Stuff Crescents: One of our events team members, not sure who.

  7. Cream Puffs: Heidi Dawson

  8. Sugar Cookies: Again, don't have a name for this one.

{Here is the insert for the Spicy Pumpkin cake...perfect for Autumn!}

Lastly, I happen to have quite a few of my lemon bar recipe cards left over and would love to share them with you. Please leave a comment here and then email me with your mailing address (you can email me through my profile). I'll shoot one off in the mail to you on a first come, first serve basis.

I absolutely love lemon bars and would love a copy of that recipe. I found one that I like by Emeril Lagasse, so I can't wait to try your version. I also love the idea of a recipe swap. It's so much nicer looking than a plain index card. LOL

Hi Susan! I love your receipe swap page - it is beautifully done! It is a double gift - we get the receipe and the card! I would love to receive one. Maybe it will inspire me to participate in receipe swap myself!
