Recipe Swap Part 1

Let me preface this by saying while I am NOT a cook, I have friends that are.  Do not hesitate to try the following recipe.  It is not mine.  The muffins are great.  I promise!

The first couple of times I tried 6x6 recipe card swaps I thought I should match the embellishments to the recipe - as in a chicken on a chicken casserole recipe.  This made for some funny stuff but I quickly found out that was not what was expected.

This past summer I did another recipe swap and got the recipe I used from my sideline, Eileen Flannery, who is an absolutely fabulous cook.  So good in fact, that we quit taking turns bring dessert to our meetings, we just give her cash and she brings something wonderful every single month!  Anyway, this was my recipe card...

Sadly, this great paper is retired but you could still copy the idea - Just use coordinating paper and use a chipboard letter that goes with your recipe.  This "B" for blueberry is the Serif Essentials Die.  I glued a scrap of paper to chipboard using my SU glue-stick - perfect adhesive for this - and ran it through the Big Shot.  Remember to always have the side you want to show face down against the die.

After seeing what I did with her recipe, Eileen wanted our group to do a recipe page swap.  I agreed on the condition that she give me another recipe.  The meeting is tonight so tune in tomorrow to see what I came up with  - it is punch creation for those of you addicted to them (like me) - and the recipe is for Amaretto Chunk Cookies.  YUM!

Lucky me! I have this page, but I haven't tried the muffins. Maybe after I lose all the weight I want to lose (can you say never,ugh?) anyway, this is a great page and I can't wait to see what you come up with tomorrow.
