Recipe Swap Quickfire in Red


Beauty, to me, is about being comfortable in your own skin.
That, or a kick-ass red lipstick.
        ~ Gwyneth Paltrow


It's week two of our Catered Crop Recipe Swap and that means it's time for the Quickfire Round – where our Catered Crop Top Chef Designers, Guest Chefs and Celebrity Chefs dish up what they've made with the featured ingredient. We've got some delightfully delicious red-hot treats for you.

Our featured ingredient is the color red and playing along is easy as cherry pie.

  • Just use the color red somewhere in your project
  • Include a link to us at Catered Crop or add our button, which you can grab on our sidebar or at our {button gallery}.
  • Link up and link often, but be sure you link up by 8:00 PM EST on Saturday, March 3.
  • Keep the party hopping by visiting the other players and leaving comments.


I'm so tickled that Paper and Such is joining us for this challenge. Paper and Such has everything a paper crafter could want. The Paper and Such line of clear photopolymer stamps is so much fun (check out the chickens) and they're made right here in the USA! They carry all my favorite papers as well as adhesives, dies, embellishments, twine, ribbon . . . yep, paper crafter's candy store. Be sure to visit their Paper and Such Design Blog for beautiful inspiration and weekly challenges.

One very lucky randomly picked player will get to go shopping at Paper and Such with a $20 Gift Certificate.

There's a whole gallery of gorgeous ideas and brilliant tutorials in this Pinterest board we created for you for inspiration. And, here's what our Chefs have prepared for you in red. These are just thumbnails of their amazing work, so be sure to click their names to visit their blogs.
