B is for Bodacious Recipe Swap Quickfire

B was a beggarly Bear,
Who carefully curled his front hair;
He said, “I would buy A red-spotted tie,
But I haven’t a penny to spare.”

It’s week two of our “B is for” Recipe Swap. That means it’s time for the Quickfire Round – where our Chefs dish up what they’ve made with the featured ingredient.

Our featured ingredient is The Letter B: buttons, brads, burlap, and bows; bees, bears, bunnies and Bingo . . . anything that starts with the letter B.

Here’s how we roll . . .

  • Just use something that starts with The Letter B somewhere in your project. Be sure to tell us where we can find B in your project.
  • Include a link to us at Catered Crop or just 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, May 12.
  • Keep the party hopping by visiting the other players and leaving comments.

Winners of the challenge will get the coveted Winning Recipe blog button and an invitation to be featured in our next challenge.

I’ve always loved Purple Onion Design’s whimsical designs, but, oh honeys, the newest release from Stacey Yacula’s Studio is so fresh and fun. One very lucky, randomly selected winner will get a $25.00 gift certificate from Purple Onion Designs. But, you know what? If you see something you like (and you will!), you may not want to wait until our drawing on May 13 to get your hands on them. They are selling out fast! And, get this, because their stamps are made out of unmounted (deeply etched) red rubber, they’re very affordable – more stamps for me!

Here’s a whole Pinterest gallery of creative ways to use the letter B in your projects. There’s even some musical inspiration from Sesame street – I couldn’t leave them out!

Check out what our Catered Crop Chefs and made for you this week featuring freaky-cute images from Purple Onion Designs . . . enjoy! You’ll want to click on the pictures to go to their blog posts for all the details.


I’m crazy excited that two members from the Purple Onion Designs Blog team joined our Quickfire. Welcome Donna and Jennifer!


And, finally, here’s what the winners from our last challenge created for today’s Quickfire. Congratulations Suzie, Cheryl and Monika.
