I am in.

Do you want to do both digital and analog (paper)?

vote-for7vote-against

(oh Finally!)
Me too. Set up the rules. How many recipes each? Do you want to have every one include a recipe for five different courses, or family recipes, ethnic recipes (cepelinai, y'all!), or fun categories? I like this Recipe Route idea!

vote-for6vote-against

Totally diggin' this idea... I'm in!

Details?

vote-for7vote-against

Ooh, I am in! I also think it would be nice if whoever ends up with the "completed" book could scan it or something so that everyone would get to see all the recipes that were included.

Delicious foods + the fun of a chain/exchange = awesome idea!!

vote-for7vote-against

Yes, I love new recipes! I'm in.

vote-for7vote-against

OMG I felt like I was comment jail!

I am in!

I was kind of thinking that someone might feel the urge to type up recipes that were just in the book so that all could have a copy. I envisioned folders on the thumb drive to keep the submissions a bit more organized:
Appetizers, Desserts, Dinners, Soups, etc. The folders could obviously be edited/added as needed as the drive traveled.

The book would likely just be in the order that they were added by members along the Route.

I wouldn't want to dictate that each contributor would have to add a set number of recipes (don't want to discourage Wooters with one or two gems who are looking for more ideas), but we probably should have an upper bound so that it's not overwhelming by the end also. 5 sounds reasonable, yes?

@hobbit: Hello, my name is LaVikinga and I am a Deals.Wootaholic.

JUST now stumbled across this blog site and thought it was along the lines of my ideal for the recipalooza: http://www.robynwebb.com/fabulousfoodfinds/

It's a combination of great recipes, photos, how-to's and stories behind the recipes. I realize it would be a lot for some of us to do, but I think incorporating some of the ideas would make the journal extra special. AND once the journal comes to an end, it can be "published" cheaply and sent back out to the contributors.

@perkalicious11: We could do like a three ring binder and have the dividers separating them.

vote-for7vote-against

@sgoman5674: does a binder still fall under the acceptable contents of media mail? (I suppose I could look myself, but I'm sure there are some enablers out there who won't make me.)

The binder would be a good way of keeping it more organized. How large are we envisioning this will be? 1/2" binder? 1" binder? Maybe that's something that would have to be decided once we figure out how many are thinking of participating.

vote-for6vote-against

@perkalicious11: The binder as well as a thumb/flash drive. Maybe a 1 gig would suffice.

vote-for10vote-against

If we wanted to go green, we could have everyone submit the recipes to a single email address. Have one person organize it, put it on a flash drive and then start the flash drive on it's journey (where it could collect more recipes as it goes along). This way the first several people on the list would be a larger variety of recipes at the start.

vote-for10vote-against

@perkalicious11: or the binder can grow like the box did.

@lavakinga: I like the idea of being able to publish cheaply and maybe even working a deal with woot??? that perhaps some profits could go to a charity for the homeless or something like that????? Maybe we could work this to be a sponsored deal??????? @jumbowoot are you listening?

vote-for6vote-against

@hobbit: Charity deal! That would be really cool. Maybe have not as a sponsored deal, but as the main deal on woot.com. That would be really special.

vote-for8vote-against

Here's an alternative suggestion. Someone ::cough::cough:: could go off and create a blogspot called, oh, I dunno, perhaps dealswootrecipes.blogspot.com? People could then add recipes, via posts, or comments, or similar.

It's there, now, if anyone wants to play. I'm just a big fan of not making more paper, and this way, we don't have to wonder whether someone's dropped the ball or not.

[Off to the great outdoors for a while. I think that no one can actually play right now, and that I have to give permissions. It also won't hurt my delicate feelings if this doesn't get used.]

vote-for6vote-against

@sgoman5674: well I didn't want to think THAT big but yes that would be cool too! maybe move to moofi after the day if it didn't sell out.

@shrdlu: what am I doing wrong? I get a DNS error.

Edit: D'oh! Sorry, thought you had already done it.

@theoneill555: Do you still not see it? It does take a few to propagate, but I believe it's out there now. Dang, but you guys are QUICK.

ARHGHGH!!!

Not blogger, blogspot. Please, whoever has a second, tattle on my other comment and ask them to change my link. I'm an idjit.

vote-for6vote-against

If it becomes digital, then we could rate each recipe with "woots!"
also instead of regular salt, we'll need to substitute 'baconsalt' #notreally #yesreally

vote-for6vote-against

@wootfast: But not for desserts.

I'm in. But please don't make us find a specific number of recipes, my recipe book is still in storage so it might take a while to find it.

vote-for6vote-against

@shrdlu: I think that mailing the recipes would be more fun than a blog. I signed up anyways.

vote-for7vote-against

@shrdlu: I see it, now I have to figure it out (I am a blogger illiterate).

@sgoman5674: There is nothing that says we can't do both.

vote-for8vote-against

Looks like you all have it under control.

vote-for5vote-against

@wootfast: we have already done a digital recipe book.

vote-for7vote-against

@sgoman5674: I concur

@jumbowoot would we be able to do something in print and maybe sell it on woot????????? pretty please with maple bacon on it?

vote-for8vote-against

@theoneill555: The down side of using blogspot is that you must have (or create) a google/gmail account. On the one hand, it's free, but on the other, some folks may object to doing this. For anyone that I already know (whether or not you think that I like you is immaterial), and wants to post recipes, and already has a gmail account, just "follow" this blog, and I'll add you as an admin. It's limited to 100, but I strongly doubt that there are 100 people who have, or are willing to acquire gmail accounts, and who want to post recipes.

We may even consider having a gmail account that people send recipes via email to, and that will then post those recipes as well.

Bookmarked!
@shrdlu: You don't like "recipalooza?" What about WootFood (that is if we're allowed to use the word "Woot." Intellectual property issues.)

vote-for4vote-against

@lavikinga: Hey, I just wanted to put a comment there. Recipalooza is pretty funny, actually. I cannot believe that I just drank a quart of water (mowing is very thirsty work). Okay, I lied, not really a quart, but more than a glass...

vote-for5vote-against

I guess when I get home I will have to type up my recipe for sesame cookies, though it won't get posted till Sat night at the earliest.

vote-for8vote-against

@sgoman5674: noooooooooo don't give in......I am still going for the whole mailing experience. I like getting stuff IN the mail.

vote-for6vote-against

@lavikinga: I think wootfood is a good title if we are allowed to use it. ha ha

vote-for6vote-against

@hobbit: As do I. The funny thing is my wife looks at the mail and then sticks it into a drawer never to see the light of day again.

vote-for6vote-against

@sgoman5674: I guess I also put letters/cards away after I get them (probably for awhile), but I do like looking at them at a later time - it's somehow more satisfying to hold an actual card than to look at one on the computer. And getting things in the mail is always fun!

On an unrelated note, I am surprised that this hasn't yet hit popular...but it is kind of nice not having completely random people posting only for the sake of maybe getting free(ish) things, haha.

vote-for9vote-against

@angstangel: It will not hit popular as long as people are commenting on the "Cost" thread. The activity there is more than the activity here. I'm just guessing, of course, but it's an EXTREMELY educated guess.

[Edit. Make more random comments here. MOAR comments, pls]

@angstangel: peach and rhubarb, separately and combined are a few of my favs, back when I ate that stuff.

monkey bread

(had to find some way to sneak monkeys onto this thread)

vote-for7vote-against

@hobbit: I've heard of it but never had any. Hopefully, someone will have a recipe for it.

vote-for5vote-against

@theoneill555: I have had some at work, someone made some special for me, it is supposed to have pecans in it.

vote-for6vote-against

@hobbit: Is it rough having nut allergies? When I bake things (except for little Pecan Tarts) I usually don't use nuts. I modify lots of recipes even though no one I bake for has nut allergies.

I had a slice of apple pie from Braums for dessert tonight! It was warm, but no whipped cream or ice cream on top.

vote-for10vote-against

@faughtey: Hey, if you're on duty, maybe you can just give this a nudge. I've tried unvoting and then voting again, which sometimes helps. It just should have gone to Popular HOURS ago.

Back later (idle hands, devil's playground, that kind of thing).

vote-for10vote-against

@shrdlu: I don't know if there is any way to make it go over. I voted and unvoted too. If some of you have more than one voting account, try voting some more. Otherwise: @shawnmiller: poke runs to hide
