Family Style Cook Book

So I’m finally getting around to making a cook book… Below is what I have so far topic wise. Anything else I should include? I’m still way early in the process and trying to get everything sorted and organized first.  The idea is to keep it to things that the Family/Me has made over and over again. Things I’ve been asked “how it’s made, or just mentioned that I should bring it in for events.  The “tried and true” sorta recipes. Thoughts? With what I have so far it’s about 78 pages just from what I have on this website (still need tons of editing, not to mention me recooking everything to get proper pictures, instructions, and methods for the book).

I plan on releasing it via iBooks because:

  1. I can add all sorts of multimedia stuff (such as walk through videos, image galleries, etc).
  2. It is easy to publish it to anyone who wants it and across multiple platforms (from macs to iOS devices, even option to export a PDF or epub versions).
  3. I can update it a I go along with newer recipes, videos, multimedia, and anything else I can think of automatically to anyone who has the iBooks version.

If you have a recipe that you have liked and want me to include it please mention in the comments below (or directly to me).  There are some recipes I know I’ll still need to get from family members (as i enjoy it, but don’t know how to make it).

And any ideas for a title?
