I think no matter what you send around you risk this happening. Imagine sending around a 3 ring binder where each person adds a recipe and a picture of them making it, then sends it along to the next person. Eventually you would have one large cook book of great original recipes, pictures included.
It wouldn't take much for a person like the last one to turn it into a structured cookbook and run around selling it on Ebay or something.
I think we need something of the opposite, instead of something that grows as it gets passed around it should be something that each of us gets a 'piece' of as it gets passed around.

But to be personally contacted and ask for it to be returned and not to is SAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAD! He must have lost it or ditched it in a move---who knows and who cares but it was his responsibility to return it and if there had been a problem he should have contacted DC to let them know. How long did the traveling apron venture last before it ended with this ..............?

Of course, when everyone there found out what we wanted him for, they started calling us every foul thing under the sun and defending him, but we accomplished our purpose (we didn't expect him to send the apron back) in letting him know that we all knew what he had done.

Good for you and Jkath! YOu girls rocked. Too bad that he didn't have a conscience after all

What about an online cookbook that each of us contribute a recipe and a photo of us preparing or serving the dish? Maybe we could set it up in a format that could be optimized so it could be printed out easily and on a standard page? That way we could all have a copy. Maybe we could even make sure we're wearing our favorite apron in the picture?

Like an online DC cookbook made up completely by members with member photos and photos of the dishes? That sounds cool, and making it downloadable and printable would be cool as well!
Maybe have some sort of 'qualifying' and proofing system set up before a submission can be placed in it...
