Last week I announced that I plan to write an ecookbook! This is insane for two reasons: 1) I have no idea what I’m doing and 2) I seriously have no idea what I am doing. I’m probably out of my mind for attempting this, but since my motto for this year has been “if not now, when?” I figure I may as well just jump into the ring.
I thought it might be fun to include you guys in the process mostly because I so appreciate your feedback, but also because if things go according to plan (for the record, I have no plan) then I want you to see that you can do it too.
Every once and a while I will put together a short post on how things are going, what tools I am using, helpful resources and give you guys an opportunity to put in your two cents. I hope you find this fun, and if not I can always just sulk in the corner. Have I mentioned that I’m TERRIFIED?! I mean whaaaat, I got this. Fake it till ya make, am I right?!
Today we’re talking theme. I’ve actually discussed several theme ideas with some of my close friends and was going to ask you guys to help me pick, but none of them really felt right. In going through my recipes for my new Recipe Index (have you checked it out yet???) I noticed I have an obscene amount of recipes for a certain category. However, it was only after talking with a certain fit foodie that I finally realized what I should be doing. SO…
Healthy breakfast food! I’m assuming none of you are shocked by this. I am obsessed with all things pancakes/waffles/oatmeal/granola/eggs etc…and I basically brunch like it’s my job. I love breakfast food and I especially love hosting people for breakfast or brunch. Ain’t no reason why you can’t feed yourself or a room full of guests healthy breakfast food that is also delicious.
I’ve already begun shooting and had a near meltdown over cinnamon rolls this weekend (third time’s a charm!) but despite my anxieties and occasional frustrations, I’ve never been more excited to tackle a mission. Plus I’ll be eating an insane amount of breakfast food over the next few months, so I certainly cannot complain!
In discussing ideas with Lee and and C I’ve run into one major problem. I HATE bacon. I don’t like the taste and the smell is nauseating to me (I know, please don’t judge) but according to them I can’t do a cookbook with breakfast food and not include bacon in some shape or form. So now I am asking YOU, do I need to suck it up and start cooking some bacon or can I pull off a breakfast cookbook sans bacon?
I hope you guys vote yes…
Stay tuned for more ebook updates or stalk my Instagram where you’ll get a behind the scenes peak at some of the recipes I’m including!
Thoughts on breakfast food? Am I crazy for not liking bacon?
