Resurrecting the Cookbook
Well, two friends and I started writing a cookbook years ago. One friend dropped from the project, and the two of us were left holding the recipes, so to speak. We have struggled over the years on how much of a priority it was in our lives to make this happen. Writing a cookbook is a lot of work, especially when you are raising more than a handful of children AND homeschooling.
I am excited to say that we are resurrecting the cookbook project. It is something that is near and dear to my heart, and I pray that it will lead to other projects in the future. The cookbook that we are working on will really be good for anyone that is interested in eating more consciously. It will be a wonderful resource for many types of people including singles, couples and families. There will be something for those that are meat eaters, vegetarian and vegan.
This cookbook will encompass our varying dietary styles over the years which includes a struggle with knowing how best to eat and battling old habits. Everyone learns as they grow, hopefully, and this cookbook will provide recipes for every level of awareness. I am so excited that this project is back on!
Of course, the cookbook is always in my head. We have just had it on the back burner, so to speak, for at least a year or more. Making the decision to recommit to the project was rather easy for both of us. It is something that we would just love to see come to fruition and pray that God blesses it's publication. This cookbook has tremendous potential. It is my prayer that I will be offering it up right here in the not so distant future.
In just over a week we will be meeting to discuss the details of what we have accomplished, what still needs to be done, and how to go about doing said things. We will be making a business plan of sorts. Your prayers in regard to this project would be most appreciated. I just know that this is something that can be used to glorify God.
Over the coming months I will share recipes and seek your opinion. I will share struggles and triumphs throughout the process. You input will be sought and valued. I am really looking forward to the coming months.
