Winter Warmer Recipe Swap - Inspiration


Click To Visit

Have you joined the Winter Warmer Recipe Swap that Fiona and I are organizing?  There are 8 days left before the sign-up deadline and I would love for you to take part! It's all about exchanging your well-loved recipes with other people who like to cook.

When you write down a recipe for somebody else, do you get all artistic? I for one always try and add some kind of doodle or a fancy font. I'm not in any way artistically inclined, but I like to personalize recipes that way.

There is an awesome website called They Draw And Cook. It is full of illustrated recipes that are very much artistic and I love to browse it just to look at the amazing designs.

I chose some of the images I found there to serve as inspiration for the swap. Of course you don't have to get fancy at all, a lovingly handwritten recipe is enough in itself, so let these awe but not intimidate you!

  1. Those illustrated recipes are just beautiful! I have only a couple of recipes that I follow. For shortcake and cupcakes. I tend to bake the same two things over and over again and find the whole process of eat and repeat really satisfying! Em x

  2. I love these pictures so much! Still not sure what I'm going to do for my recipe (depends slightly on my swap partner I guess), but these pics are so inspiring!

  3. My favourite ones: pavlova and super tomato soup!

  4. so cute! I am going to sign up now :)
