A Labor of Love

Well, tonight I am staying in, supposedly because I am disciplined and want to do my statistics homework.  Disciplined I may be, but I at least have to procrastinate a little tiny bit.  I mean, really… its statistics.  

So as some of you may remember, I was working on a cookbook.  And in fact, I made some.  Each one has a handmade cover, color photographs (many of which can be seen on this blog), some decorative things, and a grand total of 39 Recipes in the following categories:

Appetizers, Soups, Salads, Sandwiches, Entrees, Sides, Breads, Desserts, Fruits

Each category has 4 recipes, organized as 1 recipe per season.  The exceptions are Entrees, which have 2 recipes per season for a total of 8 recipes – and Fruits, which has 3 recipes in no particular order since Fruit is not available fresh year round.

I’m pretty proud of it and pleased with how they turned out.  The picture at the top of this entry is of a few different books which haven’t been given away yet.

Here are some more detailed shots of my personal copy:

and even closer…
As you can see, the title is “Good Food is a Gift” and so is this cookbook!

    Nice work. The books look great. A friend of mine is working on one as well. It’s a collaborative effort among us, with plenty of photos from our dinners together.
