Almost didn’t get a blog posted for today!

I’m working on a cookbook. Just one for fun that I’m going to self-publish through I’m picking some of my favorite recipes I’ve published online and choosing some new ones to add.

I’m really having fun with this little project, even if I just publish one book to keep in my kitchen (so I don’t have my laptop teetering on the counter and paranoid that a bin if flour will fall on top of it) or make a few extra for family. Hey, maybe it will be MINDBLOWINGLY AWESOME and I’ll throw some in my etsy shop.

Anyway, here’s a rough draft of how it’s looking so far…

3. Tuna Casserole (with no canned soups!)*
4. White Wine Curry Noodles
