Ive been asked why a cookbook with pictures,you just need to follow the directions,right?
Many people dont cook at all anymore,its pre-made pizza,canned this,frozen that.
They arent good at reading and picturing what it should look like.Cooking terms have no meaning to them.They havent any experience.
But show them step by step pictures it makes a lot more sense.
The goal,therefore,is to make cooking easy and foolproof as possible for the inexperienced as well as the master skilled cook.
I want the young woman who was raised in a non cooking home to see she can do this.I want the young man who has never cooked a thing beyond a microwave burrito to be able to eat a tasty home cooked meal.As for the master cooks,doesnt hurt them to see what the final product should look like either.
Currently hoping to get a couple hundred recipes here.Its a lot of work,admittedly so. But we can do it. You dont have to create literary photo journal masterpieces,we arent pro's. Just put up what you can as best you can.
And lets not forget dishes that seem so simple to you they arent worth putting up.Making Chili or Chicken Soup is HARD for someone who has never done it before.
When we get our cookbook big enough I will work more to promote it via search engines with key words to get it out to as many people as possible.
"Make it your ambition to lead a quiet life, to mind your own business, and to work with your hands, just as we told you, so that your daily life may win the respect of outsiders and so that you will not be dependent on anybody."
