OOPS - Have a recipe that you came up with quite by accident? You wanted to make something else but didn't have the right ingredients so you experimented with something off the wall and it actually tasted good? Here's your chance to share it with others. I like to call these "OOPS" recipes

Green - Or since March is associated with St. Patrick's Day and doesn't matter who you are, everyone is Irish on St. Patty's day and everyone wears green, so this month's theme is Green! Any recipe involving a green veggie, dessert, drink mix. But be sure it's one you've tried and tested. Now if, you are Irish and have a favorite Irish recipe, then you can sign up for that instead.


Here's the catch: Since this is a scrapbooking site, your recipe card will have to be decorated scrap book style. Say for example, your recipe is chocolate covered cherries, could make your recipe card on brown and red cardstock, add some cherries or red gems/ribbon.

When you sign up, please let me know what your recipe will be and an alternate, in case someone beat you to it.

Here are the rules:

1. Sign-ups will be accepted until 3/17/12.
2. Recipe must be typed out.
3. Recipe card must have at least 3 embellishments
4. Recipe cards must also be made out of a heavy duty cardstock or similar material that is acid free for those who wish to put this in a photo album and must be 4x6. You can make it 8x6 and fold it in half or do a 12x6 and make a trifold.
5. The number of recipes cards you make will depend on the number of people who sign up. I am going to limit it to 10 people per category. If there is more interest, then I might start up a second group.
6. All cards must be in my hands by 3/31/12, that does NOT mean post mark day. I will be swapping them out that week. I want to make sure everyone has their cards in their hands before Easter!

7. Mailing: I will try to use the same envelope as long as it's in good condition. If it's been used numerous times and the outside is getting thin, then you might want to get new envelope. Please include a return address label. I have enough tape, so I can tape it on, if needed. Include the same amount of postage, plus four 10 cents extra postage stamps.

For people swapping from overseas - I accept Paypal. Pm me for my email address.

Thanks for hosting this swap again! I had fun making the Valentine's recipe cards. I'd like to sign up for the OOPS category as well as the Green category.

OOPS - Taco pasta shells (I had everything to make tacos, except the shells!!! So, we used a box of jumbo pasta shells and baked the "tacos" instead!)

Green - Grasshopper Cheesecake

Thank you ladies - the chicken broccoli ring did not call for creme cheese only soup; so I added some creme cheese to it and less soup - I have had different variations on it when I make it - but this one seems to get eaten faster.

Look forward to this swap - I love cooking and have done a couple of others it should be fun! If we do not get more signed up I will consider doing another set of each catagory.

Have a great weekend!

This month seems a bit slow for a lot of swaps... so many new ones are popping up all over.

I'll keep it going. Even if we're only making three cards, we'll be getting a couple of new recipes in return.

Yes, I think this is the 4th month since I started it. The first month, there were about 6 different categories, then we did Christmas cookies, then last month was chocolate. I find it's easier to keep the number of categories down to 2 or 3.

(Melissa, you made me blush!)

I would love to join this...my only problem is the size of them. I was involved in another recipe swap on another scrapbook site, and every month is had to ALWAYS be 6"x6". So every month, do the sizes change, or are they always 4X6?

The other recipe swaps I have seen are usually 6 x 6 this is a different size, I am going to try it out.
