Spring Swap

When I was about 6 years old, my sister and I loved to have a look at the recipes my mother had, they were a gift from her mother. Through our eyes, they were at least a million years old.
I still remember the plastic mint colored box and the, must have been over a hundred, recipe cards it held. My favorite, I have a terrible sweet tooth, was the marshmallow birthday cake. It had the shape of a house, the roof made of, yes indeed, marshmallows. It ticked all the boxes, sweet, colorful, special and just so adorable. I stared at that picture for hours.
My mum, not a terribly good cook but a happy baker, promised to make me one on my next birthday. I so looked forward to that. When the day arrived and she made me the cake, I was so thankful. I still remember how proud I felt.
The most beautiful cake in the world, especially made for me!

We are happily to announce our next Swap.

We will make for each other:

A recipe story/picture book.

The book contains:
15 recipes,
some stories/memories and some pictures/ drawings or other illustration to go with the recipes.
You are totally free to choose your own kind of recipes and medium to make your book, as long you can put it in a box or envelope and sent it to your swap mate.

This is gonna be lots of fun.
The good part is, nobody has to know if you are a good cook, maybe you're just a good collector, it really doesn't matter at all ;-)

Sign in:
from now on till mid February.
Leave a comment on this post.

We will sent the book to each other at the end of March.

Come on, girls and boys, join the club!
