I am frequently asked when I am writing a book, if I am writing a book or if already have one and the answer to that is not any time soon, probably never and no!
Biggest procrastinator right here......
Anyway one of the reasons I started the blog was to share recipes and knowledge freely with anyone interested in eating plant based for health.
There are so many amazing books on plant based & vegan cooking that it becomes overwhelming and in all honesty we don't need hundreds of different recipes. Most folks buy cookery books then never make anything and I have to admit even I am guilty of that but in my defense I buy a lot of books, for research purposes!
My favourite authors are Lee Watson, Aine Carlin and Anna Jones who all have amazing cookery books and I'd highly recommend them.
I have to say that I love nothing better than settling down to read a new cookery book, its one of lifes pleasures, and planning which recipes to try first. I am old fashioned in that I prefer a good old book made of paper than on line or e books but there is a place for them and to be honest its much easier to upload a wee selection of recipes.
I am always drawn to healthier options and will often adapt recipes to make them more healthy. The majority of the recipes I share are vegan and in fact all of the recipes in my wee e book are vegan.
So this brings me back to this wee E book, which I have to admit, Jenna my rather creative daughter put together for me!
I would never have got around to it, technology is not my thing and it would be beyond my capabilities to format and put this book together, so big thanks to Jenna for doing it for me.
We all have strengths and weaknesses and no one is good at everything. I prefer to focus on what I am good at and not stress out about the things I'm not!
In my opinion, asking for help is a sign of strength, not weakness!!
Jenna put a similar wee book together many years ago when she was raising money to go to Sri Lanka and India to volunteer with street kids.
In true Jenna style, she didn't want to just do the usual sponsored event, so decided to focus on her strength at the time, which was her passion for vegan cooking.
She hosted vegan dinner parties and just asked people to pay what they thought it was worth.
They were a huge success and everyone loved the food, even though there was not one vegan among them!
Jenna put together a fab wee book with her recipes, and some lovely photos and quotes, and we sold 150 of them. Everyone who attended the dinner parties bought at least one and most people ordered an extra one. I still have the book and I always said if I ever did get around to writing a book, I would keep it simple and follow Jennas format.
Tried and tested family favourite recipes, all simple but delicious and healthy, with lovely photos and a few wee favourite quotes, which is exactly what this book is.
The photographs with the quotes are Jennas. She is also an ace photographer!
Back to the book, it has 4 sections;
Nourishing Soups & Salads
and there is a very useful Cupboard Essentials List at the beginning, with all you need to stock up a healthy kitchen.
The last page of the book lists all the recipes in Categories with links to each individual recipe which is a useful way to find your favourites and save you time scrolling through the whole book!
