Forgive me for being self-serving. But this is a project my sisters and I have been working on for months. It's finally finished, and published, self-published-but it's published. My sister, Catherine, youngest of 5 girls, thought this up. I thought it was funny; we got together with the other sisters and tried desperately to come up with enough recipes to fill a book. It was pretty hopeless, and so a lot of our time was spent trying to find recipes easy enough for us to want to cook. We spent many evenings cooking each others' recipes to make sure they worked. We've compiled them into a book for anyone who prefers to be anywhere other than the kitchen, but who is charged with bringing a dish to some function.
That's my sister, Catherine, on the cover. I shot all the photos with my little digital camera, including the cover. And I did the layout and production on my mac, using lots of Photoshop. It's been an all-consuming effort. But fun. Our hope is that one day a real publisher will take over. I'll let you know how it goes.
On November 8, we're having debut of sorts, at my sister's place of business in Buckhead, Seraphim Skin Care Salon in Atlanta. Anybody interested is welcome to come. I'll post specific information as the time approaches. In the meantime, check out our book on Lulu.com! www.lulu.com/content/1284044
And now, back to my art...
