Thanksgiving is a holiday of family and friends and of remembering what is important in your life. If your family is like mine, what is most important on Thanksgiving is food. Lots and lots of food.
Thanksgiving is the only time of year that some of my favorite family recipes make an appearance at the table, and all of those dishes are tied to strong memories. As my family has gotten older and the kids have moved all over the country, I worried that some of the recipes would be lost. The obvious solution was to write a cookbook.
I made my cookbook a few years ago by just uploading a word file and cover. Simple! Once I had my files ready, it only took a few minutes to publish and I had the perfect Christmas gift for my entire family.
All those delectable recipes have now been saved in my book The Midwest Meets the South. Though grandma absolutely refused to let me print her famous yeast roll recipe in a book, so some secrets remain just that.
With the Lulu Studio it is now easier than ever to turn your Thanksgiving feast into more than a picked-over turkey carcass and memories. Just choose your binding, type in your recipes, add photos and publish your book. Easy as pie (which you should definitely include a recipe for in the cookbook). You can get started here.
If you add family photos and the stories behind your meals, this simple cookbook can become a keepsake for generations.
Lulu Studio will be my first choice, when I make a second edition. (Grandma, I will get that yeast roll recipe one day!)
Happy eating everyone!
