On Writing a Cookbook

I’ve been checking out cookbooks from the library lately.  Ones that have recipes on cooking food you have grown or foraged or even bought local.  Seems like a lot of them are from the area in the north east.  Some of that stuff doesn’t grow in Texas.  Or I’m not interested in eating thistles and milkweed.

So as I garden and generally go about my day, I think about what my cookbook would have.

Um, 2 recipes.

1. eat as you pick.

2. saute what you pick with garlic and onions.

Two recipes do not a cookbook make.  And I’m not sure #1 counts as a recipe.   However, I have been very happy, with this repertoire.  My daughter even pointed to the skillet full of Amaranth and said, “I’m eating that!”


I’ll let you know if I come up with any other items for the cookbook.
