As long as I've been cooking, I've had friends and family ask for recipes. I never knew what a cooking blog was, and thought about writing a cookbook. Then I found out about blogging, and decided it would be a cheaper, easier, and more far reaching route, so the cookbook idea fell by the wayside.
Since I found out we were moving, I've been thinking more and more about making a cookbook to have the first two years (thenewlywed years) documented. I also know people like my grandparents don't read the blog, but Grandma's always asking for recipes. And personally, I have many of my recipes in my head, but sometimes I can't remember my chocolate chip cookies and hate sifting through my blog, I'd rather have it in writing.
So... for the past 2 months, I've gone through my blog, picked out my original and most favorite recipes from the past 2 years, and turned them into a cookbook!
The book is in full color, photos of every recipe, a few meal collections, lots of photos of friends and family, and a little of my personal writing. It has over 100 original recipes, and will be ready to buy in about a month! I got my first copy a few days ago, and my sister is editing it for me, so it will be ready as soon as Kris gets her changes in!
I'll be selling it for around $30, with a discount for larger orders. I don't have the order form made up yet, hopefully sometime next week, and the first run of books will be in around October 1. I'll be taking pre-orders for a month, and then will order them in increments of 10 there after... but I'll keep you all posted.
Here's the cover photo, and then me with the first run copy of the book!
