Jemia had sent me an email invitation for this recipe exchange a while ago. I had to double check with her to make sure it is not a scam, and by the time I went about to sending the recipe it was a couple weeks later.
Here is basically how the email goes:
We are participating in a collective, constructive, and hopefully TASTY experiment.
As such, you have been invited to be part of a recipe exchange concept. We hope you will participate.
We have picked those we think would make this fun. Please send a recipe to the person whose name is in position 1 (even if you don’t know him/her) and it should be something quick, easy and without rare ingredients. Actually, the best one is the one you know in your head and can type right now.
Don’t agonize over it, it is one you make when you are short of time.
After you’ve sent the recipe to the person in position 1 below and only to that person, copy this letter into a new email, move my name to position 1 and put your name in position 2. Only my name and your name should show when you send your email. send to 20 friends BCC (blind copy). If you cannot do this within 5 days let us know so it will be fair to those participating.
You should receive 36 recipes. It’s fun to see where they come from! Seldom does anyone drop out because we all need new ideas. The turnaround is fast as there are only 2 names on the list and you only have to do it once.”
The challenge for me was to come up with twenty people whom I know will be willing to participate in this. Only less than twelve hours later I have received about three recipes. I am quite surprised.
I will be posting up these recipes as I receive them and I will try to make and take pictures of them for updates. I am pretty excited, and hopefully I will get some more recipes back.
