1. Recipe testing for the cookbook
I shared this in my email newsletter that went out over the weekend, but in case you missed it there I’m writing a cookbook. A real, published by a real publisher, hold in your hands and sold in stores cookbook. Writing a book is a long process. In fact, I started work on the proposal last summer and the book won’t release until Fall 2018.
I can’t tell you too much about it yet, but I will say that all of you who read and comment here have definitely shaped this book. It’s going to be a cookbook that is meant to be used, pulled out on your busiest nights to help you get dinner done. My goal is to make it a problem-solver, a dinner helper loaded with new favorite go-to recipes that your family will love.
This weekend I tested five recipes. I’ve scratched two of those, because they didn’t turn out the way I’d hoped. The others were winners though!
2. Subtle hint to my family
I ordered this print from an artist on Etsy after seeing it on The Art of Simple the other day. I’m hoping it will remind all of us to wash the dishes as we use them vs leaving a sink-full for someone else to do later.
We are still living without a dishwasher and have no plans to buy one anytime soon.
3. Testing breakfast recipes
I’ve also been testing a few breakfast recipes for the new Eat at Home Breakfast Plans. You asked and we’re working on them! I’m hoping they’ll be ready very soon. I will say, the recipes I’ve tested and tasted have been great!
