My First Book
Yep, I wrote a 252-page cookbook filled with plenty of beautiful photographs. What initially started out as a simple collection of homemade favorites for my family, grew into something much bigger and got a life on its own. I want to share this book with everyone and inspire people to make simple, wholesome meals at home and spend more time connecting around the family table. This cookbook is a collection of my favorite recipes while growing up and is full of anecdotes and family traditions. It takes passion and a lot of time to make a good thing, and it certainly has been a journey of hard labor and dedication. I worked every spare hour I had on this project and fully funded the photography, illustrations, professional editing and design of this book.
Cooking My Way Home is nearly done, and I can’t wait to share this personal project with you soon! We are now in the process of finalizing the never-ending last-minute details and looking into our funding options to print and distribute a book that meets our quality requirements. I will keep you updated through my Cookbook Journey in this community and share with you the behind-the-scenes process of creating and publishing this cookbook.
