Drum roll, please….
I’m writing a cookbook! Well, an e-cookbook. But something, finally.
Wow, this is hard work. Between developing the recipes, actually measuring ingredients, and styling/shooting the food, it’s a huge project to tackle! But, I have come to realize that I love sharing the ease of cooking with others – yes, I said ease – and I think this book will be the best way to accomplish this task.
Obviously this will take some time to complete, but I wanted to share now to 1) help explain my absence from DIY projects and 2) get some feedback on my vision!
One of the biggest complaints I hear about cooking and meal prep is that it takes a lot of time and becomes boring. And yeah, that can definitely be true. Even for someone like me who can enjoy the same thing a couple of days in a row, a whole week of the same meal is not appealing. Then, what happens? You throw things out and waste food, right?
My method involves is easily preparing several components of a meal, then combining them in different ways throughout the week to keep food interesting. I have some slow cooker recipes for those days when you really have ZERO time to spend time in the kitchen. Everything is designed to be simple to execute, but delicious and healthy! For the days when maybe you have some extra time or want to bring a dish to a potluck, there are some more “advanced” recipes, just involving a few more components and some extra steps.
The book will be organized by macronutrient: protein, carb, fat, (and veggie). Those of you who count macros will hopefully rejoice at this! I have found that there are very few cookbooks that cater to this way of eating. If you don’t care what a macro is, don’t worry – you can still use the book!
Plus, I’ve been working really hard to take mouthwatering photos (or trying to). Because you know what they say – you eat with your eyes first!
I’m looking forward to finishing this project and sharing it with you all!
