Virtual Recipe Exchange: Email Option II

Here is one reason why a Virtual recipe exchange is so nice!

Reading someone else's handwriting is hard enough without the spills and splatters!
Electronic recipes cut out the mess.

Today we have another option for your Virtual Recipe Exchange, so that you can expand your recipe collection from the comfort of your own home...

Email Option II: Include only those you know- friends, family, and good cooks!

If you are uncomfortable with the "chainletter-ish-ness" of our Email Option I: The More the Merrier from yesterday's post, then Option II may be more your speed.

Here's how it works: Send an email invitation to everyone you want to include in your exchange by adding each person's email address in the "To" line of your email message. Remember to include your yummiest recipe to seal the deal!

Each participant will send everyone in the group their favorite recipe by clicking the "Reply to All" button in your original invite message. Depending on the size of your group and the number of recipes you would like to receive, you may ask the group to send more recipes.

Here are some text directions to include in your email:

You've been invited to be part of a recipe exchange!
Please share one of your favorite recipes with our group by clicking the "Reply to All" button in this message. Not only will you be sharing your recipe, but you will receive recipes from everyone in the group! What a fantastic way to spice up your recipe collection!

Now your friends and family will rave about your new dishes and treats!

If your own recipe cards look like the pictures above, you should consider creating your own cookbook. If you are interested, I'm your woman! Simply send an email to or check out We will help you organize your recipe cards into a masterpiece!

I love this idea. I think I'm going to use a theme when I send out the invitation, maybe Late Summer Favorites or Garden Vegetable Recipes. Thanks for the suggestion!
