Leticia SAYS:

I find it odd. I don’t think I want to be compared to food and if I wanted the recipe I would google it and find a million recipes. Is there a place where people can actually write? Isn’t it the reason why you are sending somebody a card?

Hi Leticia –
The recipe is on the back of the card and the card opens up so that you can write your message inside.

It’s true that the recipe might not get used, but it’s just a fun extra detail that makes the messaging feel clever.

I also think that if the recipient DOES like the recipe and the hand-written note inside, this would make kind of a cute, sentimental addition to recipe binders and recipe storage boxes :)
