Live Real. Eat Real.

A Question

Darling Daughter flies in from Las Vegas on December 20 and leaves December 28, and Oldest Son flies in from Dallas on the 24th and leaves the 29th.  My next two weeks are going to be busy, busy, busy (much like yours, I imagine).  I’ve wondered how to handle blogging – should I try to keep to my regular schedule, blog less often or just take a break until the New Year? – when it occurred to me to ask for guest posts.  I’ve already got one (it will be up early next week), and hopefully will have six all together before it’s said and done.  If I get one from everyone I asked, it should be pretty interesting.  🙂

This busy end of the year has me thinking about next year – 2011?  Really? – and things I have to do, the things I need to do, and the things I want to do.  While it goes without saying that the things we have to do and need to do are important, we sometimes forget that things we want to do are also important.

I want to write a cookbook.

It’s been pointed out to me that I have more than enough recipes on this blog to put together a cookbook, but I don’t want to just print them up, bind them with our little binding machine here at the office and announce here “Hey, I’ve put all my recipes together in a book – you can have one for $10!”  For one thing, my cooking has evolved somewhat since I began this blog nearly 3 years ago (yea, gods) and I’m not interested in putting together a book with recipes I would no longer eat.  I also don’t want to unnecessarily limit my audience; if I’m going to do this, I want it to be full of recipes that anyone would want to cook and eat, even if there are very few, if any, that contain grains or refined sugar.

So my question is, is there anyone out there that would actually be interested in buying a cookbook I wrote?  And if so, what would you like to see in it?
