Lunch Box Stuffers - Recipe Swaps

I started participating in some recipe swaps over at SplitCoast Stampers - lots of fun, but time consuming...I'm going to have to limit myself to one swap at a time once I've met the commitments for the swaps in which I'm currently participating.

The first swap for which I signed up was a "Lunch Box Stuffers" swap. The hostess was looking for new and exciting ideas to put in her lunch box. What a great idea! I took two spots in that particular swap and these are the recipes I submitted:
This is my recipe for Chopped Broccoli Salad. I love this because it's so bright and summery. The best part is that if you're doing weight watchers, the only point count is for the dressing and for a pretty full bowl, the point count is only 2!

This is the brownie recipe that I have been cooking for probably close to 30 years...I figure I've been making it since I was about 10. It comes for a tattered old Five Roses cookbook that my mom has and it is WONDERFUL!!!

The knife/fork/spoon and coffee cup images are from a Stampendous set that I picked up in Austin, TX when I accompanied my hubby on a business trip.

Happy Stampin'!


  1. mmmm...yummy Christyne!

  2. Oh sounds yummy! Both of them!

  3. Oh I love these! I am addicted to recipe swaps as well (: I am signed up for four, but I staggered when they are all due, and only signed up for one spot each. They are soooo much fun! I plan on making a new cookbook for mine. Thanks for sharing!

  4. I was in an A to Z recipe swap for soup recipes and loved it! Your salad recipe sounds delish!

  5. ooooh brownies!! I want some! This is such an awesome idea for a swap!! You'll have to share any recipes with us that you try and like! You did an awesome job and both of your submissions look yummy!

  6. Yummmm! These look fantastic!


Thanks for taking the time out of your busy day to leave me a comment. I read every one of them and appreciate the time you spend on my blog. Have a GREAT day!
