My Cookbook

Oh, I was so full of myself!

I thought, after 30 years, that everyone would be so interested in all
the wonderful recipes I had collected and created!

I also had discovered wonderful shortcuts, methods, knowledge,  that I so wanted to share!
So, surely, there was a cookbook in there somewhere, right?

Well, upon retiring, I ventured to New York City to care for a beautiful granddaughter.
Then another granddaughter in that family arrived so I continued to travel to New York City,
for five years!
I was in my glory and enjoyed every single minute!

In the back of my mind, I thought my wonderful cookbook could wait.....I would get to it.

Lo and behold, I am no longer traveling to New York City every week and now have more
than enough time to devote to my cookbook and, guess what?

The publishing world has drastically changed!
You no longer go to an editor and try to impress them with an outline!
It seems the technical world has passed me by!

Wonderful cooks with great ideas started blogs years ago and then progressed into videos.....
some of them are now able to get a cookbook published.
It seems the publishing world has  changed with the must have a following
of at least one million on a blog or video series in order to capture the attention of the editors.
OR, you must be a celebrity or a famous singer......only then can you get a book published.

Well, I don't have a million followers, and I am not a famous singer or actor,

I am going to continue my little blog here  and post my thoughts, menus and photos of my
foods and table settings and just be happy with that..... with the hope that someone reading
my blog will learn something new or be inspired to try something new or .....just enjoy!!!!
