Eid Mubarak! I’ve had a really busy weekend and I’m sure that many of you have as well. I wanted to just share a really quick idea that I had today. Because it’s a holiday I did a lot of cooking and a lot of sharing of foods I have made. Inevitable someone always asks for the recipe for something. Typically we’re not somewhere that there is a paper and pen nearby. However I always have my phone. Here’s where my great idea came in.
A few weeks ago I wrote about Touchnote, a smartphone (or desktop) app that let’s you send postcards using your own pictures. So instead of trying to find a scrap of paper and write down a recipe I decided to snap a picture and upload it to Touchnote.
I then make a note on the message page to insert the recipe, move forward to the final screen to type in the person’s address. Then I can take the time to add in the recipe as I have time and send. In a few days they will receive the postcard in the mail, the image serving as a reminder of the dish and the recipe complete on the back.
This is a fun way to share recipes with those who have enjoyed items you have made. The more that I play with Touchnote the more ways I’m finding to use it besides just sending a simple picture!

What do you think about this idea? Wouldn’t it be fun to find a new recipe in your mail instead of a bill?
