The Recipe Swap

I am by no means a professional chef, but I do LOVE cooking and I love trying out new recipes, and then sharing those with friends. I was talking with my BFF Jaime, and we decided that we wanted to have a recipe swap, and WAH-LA-
The RED Recipe Box was born!

I will be hosting a recipe swap (if you are in the Provo, UT area) in September, and will be featuring those recipes on this blog, as well as any new recipes I try in the future.

I hope to broaden my cooking horizons, and in the meantime help those out there looking for a fresh new recipe as well. I generally take recipes from the web or cooking shows I see and then put a little twist on them, but will definitely let you know who the recipe is from, and where you can find it too! I hope that over time, I can expand my cooking resume and learn new and fun ways to feed my family. I hate the monotony of cooking the same 4 recipes, and can't wait to get my apron dirty with all new ingredients!

Ok so how will the "Recipe Swap" work?
Each time our group (no matter how big or small) meets, we will have such a variety of recipes there to share, I get so excited just thinking about it! I want to have each person bring different recipes. For example, when we meet in September, I would bring 2-4 soup recipes. Jaime would bring 2-4 salad recipes. "kate" would bring 2-4 appetizer recipes and so forth. We would ask that each girl that comes brings enough copies on 8.5x11 paper for each girl that will be there. That is the easiest way to keep everything the same, but I am open to suggestions if any has them. On the invites that I am so excited to send out, I will ask each girl on her invite what would be a great recipe category for her to bring and share with everyone.

Who wants to come to the "Recipe Swap"?

If you would like to come to the swap or know someone that would want to come, please send an email to theredrecipebox@gmail.com. Please include your email, and address that I can mail you an invite! We would love to have a steady group of girls that would come to our swap, and promise it will be worth your time and you will have so much fun! You can also email any of your recipes to The Red Recipe Box, or any of your questions as well.

We hope that you will come and join in the cooking fun!
