Dec/Jan Recipe Exchange

Has this ever happened to you???…

You have a crowd invited for dinner, and you wind up spending the vast majority of the visit tied to the stove??? In an attempt at having more time to enjoy the moment while tossing together an equally impressive meal, the theme this time round is called...

“prep it and forget it”
oven casseroles or slow cooker meals

*****Please specify if you DON’T own a slow cooker so I may accommodate you with an oven recipe in that event.

If you are interested in participating…
1. Email me at and include your name,nest name (if you have one), your recipe submission and any food allergy, dietary restrictions, dislikes or requests.
2. Please make the title/subject of the email, the name of the recipe. For example, Subject: Watermelon Sorbet.
3. If you use a recipe from someone else, be sure to cite your source.
4. You have until FRIDAY, December 5 to enter.
5. I will send you your SUPER FUN exchange recipe by email on SATURDAY December, 13.
6. You have until SATURDAY, January 10 to post the recipe, review and pictures (if you can) to your blog or in a post on the “What’s Cooking Board” if you don’t have a blog.
7. Please email me at by SATURDAY, January 10 (just after the Christmas/New Year’s parties!!!) and include a link to your blog (if you have one). Otherwise, just email me what you typed about the recipe on the “What’s Cooking Board” into your email.

Also a list will be kept of who got what recipe in addition to who has/hasn’t made their recipe.

If a previously submitted recipe was not made but fits this challenge, feel free to submit it again.

Don’t forget to invite others to participate and most importantly HAVE FUN!!!

Oct/Nov Recipe Exchange Roundup

Well that's it, this round of the recipe exchange is over. I had so much fun organizing this and seeing what everyone's favorite fall food is! Unfortunately there were a few recipes that were not made or I didn't receive the link to. If you made your recipe and just didn't get it sent to me feel free to send it and I'll add it, no problem. I left the name of the person who submitted the recipe, so if you see one that wasn't made that sounds good you can contact them or me for the recipe. Every recipe that was submitted sounds so good!

Let me know if you want to host the next round, you can either page me on the board or email me, at gmail dot com.

Here's the roundup:
