My goal by the end of the year is to organize my recipes. I have so many, in a variety of formats, just begging to be organized. Really. I hear their caloric little voices saying things like "You like chicken don't you? Come find me. I'm under this pile of 26 inches worth of Taste at Home Magazines, on page 31." or "Remember me? You use to make me all the time. We were good together. You just need to find me again!"
Not only that, but there are many recipes that I don't have memorized, and I have to constantly look through my piles of clippings and notes, in order to find the one I want. Luckily, some of my favorites are posted on my blog, and I'm always bringing up one of my recipes, and then scribbling the measurements on a torn piece of paper so I can bring it into the kitchen with me, and finish making whatever it is that I'm making.
I know it's an improbability that I will get through ALL of these books and magazines filled with wonderful, delightful, recipes, but I hope to get through enough to make a super cool recipe book for myself.
I am going to make a blurb recipe book. I'm so excited about it. I'm in the process of making a blog book from my entries through the end of 2008, but this recipe book will be different. It will be a cookbook. So, because blurb lets you make as many books as you want, I was wondering if anyone else would want to order a copy of my recipe book as well. Just putting feelers out there, to see what you thought. It's not even started yet, but it will feature all the recipes already posted on my blog, as well as a plethora of new recipes.
So, you interested?
