Books offer us words, yes, stories of fiction or non, and they offer us information that we use like how to plant a garden or how to invest. They entertain us, teach us, and tell us about our past. We take for granted the colorful photographs, different types of curvy fonts, or even a catchy title like Beekeeping for Dummies, but I, personally, will never look at a book the same way again.
Recently, I taught myself how to use Adobe InDesign, which is a program people use to design posters, magazines, menus, and books. The program is not cheap and very difficult to learn and use, but I created a product, a real product; my first cookbook, and it will be for sale soon on my site.
Originally, the book was going to be a Christmas gift for my sons, but the more I worked on it, the more I realized it could turn out to be a product that others may actually want to buy. Then, I thought it would be a cool service to add to my list; to help others create an actual cookbook, a bank for their memories and cherished family recipes.
Imagine having a book of recipes that your mother used to make for you as a child, or a book of your uncle’s spicy chili recipes. Food is a centerpiece to a family, something we all gather around, and also a staple on holidays, birthdays, and special family and friend events. The recipes are treasures, family heirlooms, and they should be displayed and protected.
Together, we can come up with a plan to create a cookbook of your favorite memories from your most beloved home chef, or we can create a collection of your own recipes, a gift for your loved-ones. Contact me today. I would love to hear from you!
