During his hiatus, Joe Prichard of the Recipe continued to do mostly local performances with the exception of reorganizing The Recipe in 2007 and 2008 to do The Recipe Family Cookout at Nelson Ledges Quarry Park near Garrettsville, OH. During the summer of 2008, Joe met singer/songwriter Shannon Jones who caught his attention at an open mic he had been hosting at Billy’s in Clarksburg, WV. Soon they began doing several duet acoustic shows in WV, PA, MD, VA and OH. The appearances they made in late 2008 were starting to trigger a fan response that seemed to call for a return of The Recipe. The band is now planning a new Recipe album release for 2011.
