Hi everyone. One of the best things about Christmas is the food. As we are celebrating CHRISTMAS IN JULY all month i thought it was a good excuse to share some recipes and give us a head start to the real thing.

As Christmas to me has always been about giving I have a gift for you as well.

If you would like to participate just create a page with your favourite recipe/s.
At the end of the month everyone who participates will receive all the pages and recipes.
As we like to keep our recipes at different sizes you can make your recipe either 3x5 in or 8.5 x 11in [300dpi]
At the end of the month you will receive them all on 3x5 cards and get any larger pages that are contributed.
COULD YOU PLEASE EMAIL YOUR RECIPE TO ME AT sharon at artforscrapbooking dot com so I can put them together to give out at the end of the month.

You can use the gift I have for you and also may use my kit "Homemade Christmas (http://www.godigitalscrapbooking.com/shop/homemade-christmas-p-11620.html)" which you will find in my store here (http://www.godigitalscrapbooking.com/shop/homemade-christmas-p-11620.html) [and it is 50% off for the month]
As we will be exchanging the pages we make
PLEASE DO NOT USE ANY OTHER DESIGNERS PRODUCTS as this is not in keeping with normal Terms of use.
You can of course use anything you make yourself - my gift is just a few little extra recipe themed items.

When you are done put a preview of your page in the gallery and show us the link here. You can put them in the Recipe Exchange Gallery (http://www.godigitalscrapbooking.com/photopost/showgallery.php?cat=518) [it is old so lets revive it lol]
You can download your gift here (http://www.jackethead.com/afs/gifts/afs_cijrecipekit.zip) [This is a direct download from my own server and should start automatically]

Sounds like a fun challenge to me.

Since we are sharing, should the recipes all be in 3 x 5 format which is the size of a standard recipe card?

HMMM I hadn't thought of that lol. I used to print mine but now tend to have them all on my computer or I print out - laminate and put in a folder.

Anyone else have thoughts on this ?? We could do a layout and also include the recipe on 3x5 ??

I usually do mine sized to 8 1/2 x 11", so that I can put them in my three ring binder, which is full of page protectors. But I'll go with the size that's decided upon.

I have done that with some Patty. I did them mainly for my son when he left home. I laminated them with a recipe on each side and then just punched holes put them in folder. he can take out the one he wants and prop it up and no worries with spills.
I used to just write them on a small card and keep in box years ago but some recipes were too long.
I will see if anyone else has input for a day or 2 and then decide.

I'd like to keep it standard to the 3 x 5 size, thank you. Be back soon with mine.

Ok lets go with doing them either 3x5 or 8.5 x 11 inch.

If you make at 3x5 300ppi anyone wishing to can upsize and add a background and print out to save at letter size.
if you do at letter size [Patty B feel free to do this] I will type the recipe up on a 3x5 card for the exchange.
That should work for all of us. :biggrin:

I had to google Emeril's essence lol, Pretty much like a cajun spice mix you get here or I could make my own mix.
Looks like a great recipe Patty. Thanks for joining in.
Could you please email the full sized one to me at sharon at artforscrapbooking dot com so I can put them together to give out at the end of the month.

Better dig my favourite christmas recipe out. it is a shortbread that is easy to make and melts in your mouth.

I'm still learning my way around and hope I did this right. It's in the gallery (http://www.godigitalscrapbooking.com/photopost/showphoto.php?photo=108980)and I will email to you as well. We usually have a very small Christmas dinner with only our immediate family but we always have this glaze on either ham or turkey.

Thanks so much for joining in and welcome to GDS. I got your email ok and will go off to the gallery and leave you some love as well.
Thank you so much for this recipe as I have wanted to do a glazed ham for ages and never got around to it. This will be my inspiration. I am hoping to find a turkey to do a christmas in July dinner so will try it out then.

Here's my recipe. It's our Christmas tradition to have this salad and Ham Loaf on Christmas Day. When my Mom first made this she rolled the cream cheese and walnuts into little balls and dropped them into the Jell-O. Took too much time for me! :laugh: Gallery Link (http://www.godigitalscrapbooking.com/photopost/showphoto.php?photo=109320&title=gds-christmasinjulyrec&cat=518)

Wow that sounds worth a try. I imagine the cherry will go well with the ham and it is cold so good for me for a summer christmas lunch. We get cranberry sauce here in australia that is more like cranberries in jelly.
Funny as I have got older I take the easier ways to make things too lol.
Thanks so uch for joining in

These sound really interesting - I would never have thought of using applesauce. I will have to try it and make some for gifts.
