Awww the fun of writing cookbooks
Monday, April 22, 2019
I'm in the process of typing up recipes for upcoming cookbooks of more family recipes. I've got recipes for possibly three more. I have three already out.
I've been transcribing those old recipes cards on legal pads. I've still got more to do but I decided to type for awhile.
I've got folders for two cookbooks but the 2nd folder could be multiple cookbooks. I dont know yet.
I guess when I get further along with the recipes, I'll know more about what I might need for each cookbook.
It's a fun process just tiring and hard on the eyes. One recipe card from the 60s was written in pencil. It was so faded I couldnt read it with my eye problems. My son was able to read it. So that's what I'm up against.
I have a foot tall stack of spiral notebooks and legal pads, scraps of paper full of recipes. Plus my box of recipe cards.
After they're all typed up, or enough for a cookbook, I'll start putting them in my cookbook document and start the publishing process.
My goal is to save all these old family recipes.
