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:
- I can add all sorts of multimedia stuff (such as walk through videos, image galleries, etc).
- 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).
- 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?
