Welcome to my recipe exchange

If you've made it this far, you're at least curious about my dorky idea of a recipe exchange. So thank you for visiting. And I hope you'll read on and participate!

I started this recipe exchange blog to gather and garner recipe ideas - and, on occasion, meal and menu planning ideas - from friends, family, and fellow foodies. I hope you'll join in the exchange by offering your own recipes for posting and by using some of the posted recipes.

How to post a recipe? Email me (denasrecipeexchange at gmail dot com) with:
  1. the recipe
  2. your name
  3. any credit when credit might be due
  4. and whether you'd like me to attribute the recipe to you or not.

OR you can just submit your recipe by adding a comment to a post. I'll get it either way.

Each Saturday or Sunday I sit down to plan out what my husband and I will eat for the week, including breakfast, lunch, dinner, and any snacks. While I love having this kind of intentionality about what we eat, and I love cooking, sometimes the creative juices (so to speak) aren't flowing like they usually do. Sometimes I have to do a little online research to get inspired. And sometimes my inspiration comes from talking about food with my friends -- or seeing what they've brought for lunch or made for dinner. So I thought I'd just collect all this inspiration in one place that will (hopefully) be an ongoing source of inspiration when the creative cooking and menu idea well runs slightly dry.

I'll definitely post my own recipes to inspire you, and will also throw in a theme or two to help focus the recipes.
