Default Postal---No Stove Required ~ 6x6 recipe card 5+1~Due Feb 2

This is a 6X6 page Recipe Swap.

This is for any recipe that a stove is not required. Some of you may know My stove caught on fire and well I haven't had the money to replace it...I know what you are thinking...a stove is only a few hundred buck...but no not this one...to replace it's $1500!! that right ladies $1500 smackeroo's!! So I've decided to embrace all the other cooking tools in my house...you know all those fun items that look cool and fun to use that we buy, use twice then they get put up....well this swap is about all those under used items or maybe in your house they are not under used (that's what I'm hoping anyway! )

so this can be a recipe using your:
microwave
deep fryer
rice cooker
food steamer
toaster oven
electric skillet
outdoor grill
crock pot
A george Forman grill
Blender
Mixer
Food processor
Dehydrator

well I think you get the idea...

the only trick to this swap is NOTHING can be prepared on the stove! meat can be browned in the microwave or electric skillet then put in crock pot....or maybe you have a great no bake pie, or no bake cookies, or an amazing Dip, or fish for two that you can bake in the toaster oven...once again..i think you get the idea....

The second trick to this swap is to HAVE FUN and be Creative!! you'll be amazed at what you can actually create with out a stove!! I didn't think I could survive...now I'm thinking I can wait awhile before I need my stove again.


PRIZES:
~anyone who takes 2 or more spots


Requirements:
6X6 base of good quality card stock.
NVR, but two layers with your recipe TYPED.
Stamping is not required, but would be wonderful!!
Please use at least one embelly.
Make a page you are proud of! Your siggy should be on the back or at least on a sticky on the back.

Quantity:
5+1; with the 1 for the hostess. You will not get one of your own back.
You may sign up for more than one spot, but it must be a different recipe.

Deadline:
February 2, 2013. They will be swapped out within 10 days of getting all the packages.

Mailing Instructions:
You know the routine....
Please place your swap(s) in a ziploc baggie with your SCS name, real name and address.
Enclose a SASE with equal postage as you sent me ~ NO metered strips, ie postage with dates.
Please enclose an extra stamp or two, just in case....all unused stamps will be returned.

My address is:
Kristyn Coppock
1009 Magnolia St

If I had to give up one piece of equipment in my kitchen it would definitely be my stove. I hardly ever use it! It just seems like a waste of energy to heat up the stove to cook for one person when a toaster oven can do the same job. I would like one spot to start please. This is going to be very interesting to see what recipes everyone chooses.

Today I made spagetti with no stove! I cooked pasta in microwave, browned meat in electric skillet and simmered the sauce in same pan. Baked garlic bread in toaster oven. And enough to feed 4 with leafovers....see no stove required!

Any special trick to cooking pasta in a microwave? I've never done that, but I would if I knew how.

dea taught me how... I heated water for about 7 minutes then put in pasta (i used small shells) and cooked for 10 more minutes....almost overcooked pasta...so next time i will do 7 and 7.

tonight I made chicken and rice in my electric skillet...i just love that thing. tomorrow will be a pork roast in the crock pot (maybe).

That sounds easy enough. I will try this at home first and then we can have pasta for our next pot luck at work.

Microwave pasta, electric skillet chicken and rice, crockpot pork roast.... who needs an oven, right?

that's what I'm beginning to think....I'm ready to pull my stove out, and put in a table or counter top so I have more space for my skillet and other non-stove cooking tools. LOL

Kristyn, I know that feeling! But this week I'm working 24 hours of overtime, and I have deadlines breathing down my neck, so I really need to use every spare moment productively. sigh I need a nap!

so has anyone else seen the new breaking dawn movie? I took my daughter and her friend to the midnight premier...I think it was the best one yet. I've read the books, but it's been so long know I couldn't compare it to the book...so I think that might have helped...but still I think it was the best yet. even the girls thought so too...

Good morning!
How is everyone? I have a cold and have had it for 3 days so far. My DH told me to take Zinc. He says that helps him. Going to swap out one of my swaps and then make Christmas cards today.
