That is a cute idea.

That's cool but where would we post it and how would it be organized? I just posted a salad dressing recipe that I love but I also have a good apple pie recipe.

I think this was discussed once, but the actual practicalities of it all prevented it from actually happening.  If I recall correctly, it turned into a recipe book/recipe card swap.  Everyone emailed their recipes to the organizer who put them into one word doc, then sent them to everyone.  Then each person compiled them, either into a book or on cards, and sent them to their swap partner.

But, as I recall, that also got messy, b/c people started whining that they were vegetarians or lactose intollerant, etc...

Making an effort to use proper English and not 'net slang makes me much more willing to respond to your post.

I love the idea, but yes it could become complicated. However, there is an idea out there that may help. Why write one book? What about several smaller books (eg. Vegetarian, Diabetic, Meatarian, Lactose free, Kosher, etc). You can publish your own books through www.Lulu.com - the books are very reasonable, and if people wanted to buy online they could (you can buy the printed book, the PDF or Email version [not sure which they have], or order from the person publishing). The profits could be set to next to nothing, so the cost is actually just the cost of the published material (so no one person profits when 100 people, or however many, have contributed). If the majority of contributors agreed, any profit could be sent in as a mass donation for craftster (I'm sure it could be worked out that way).

Just some thoughts Smiley

It did happen, and I was the organizer.

Initially it was kind of a mess and wasn't going to happen, but I restarted it as an "omnivore" swap--meaning that ALL recipes were OK to include, and if someone else wanted to start a vegetarian/lactose intolerant/vegan/whathaveyou swap they were more than welcome to (and if you didn't want to receive all different kinds of recipes, then too bad and don't sign up  Wink).  People sent me the recipes, I made a master file, and sent it out to everyone.  Then once everyone got the master file, they made either a cookbook or recipe box with the recipes.

Here's the gallery:

A round two happened, I believe, however I didn't participate in it so I can't really say anything regarding it.
