Hey, All...I was impressed with the quality of the dishes, casseroles, salads and platters that you made for the buffet at our birthday party. Our community spirit was/is excellent. Which got me to thinking.
I think I will head-up a “Steel City Ukuleles (community) Cookbook….
I will send out a request for recipes. Everybody makes something really good. There will be guidelines, and I’ll give you a format to follow. When I get a response, I’ll take the next step. Don’t send anything until you hear from me again, ok? But you can start thinking.
Examples: Chris’s Baked Beans, Barbara’s Corn Pudding, Frank’s Santa Fe Salad, Jack’s Kolbasi and Kraut, Barb’s deviled eggs. Real food, simply made.
Yes, making a cookbook is a lot of work. (I’ve written 4 cookbooks, and co-authored two others.) But we all have skills, and I will ask for your expertise. We will need volunteers: e.g., line drawing artist, proof readers, recipe testers, and so forth. When we all share in the process, there’s no burden and we have a win-win. (No, we won’t use an online copy-cat format.)
Oh, and I’ll request recipes from our traveling artists, too. Gerald Ross might send us a Michigan cherry pie; Lil Rev will have some gluten-free goody, Stu Fuchs is liable to contribute crunchy granola. And Danielle Ate the Sandwich? Right.
