What a brilliant and totally attainable endeavor! Here's what I love about the idea, and then keep reading to see how we're going to organize and thus gather our own family
- The pictures are personal, attractive, and relate to the recipes.
- The style in which the recipe is written is my favorite style: simple, minimalistic, and easy to cook from.
- Affordable, lifelong, collectible book.
- The possibilities are endless!!!
I'm starting to compile our recipes today.
- By Season first and in this order: Autumn, Winter, Spring, Summer
- Within the Season, in this order: Vegetable, Meat, Grains & Pastas, Baked Goods, Cocktails
- A List section for specific holidays: Harvest,* Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year's, Epiphany, Valentine's, St. Patrick's, Easter, July Fourth, and Birthdays General.
- A Meal List: I love how Mireille Guiliano and Jamie Oliver present their recipes within a greater meal plan.
- Each Recipe will include: Source, Prep & Cook times, Age-appropriateness (as in, this was made when the kids were such and such ages), and the Meal in which it was enjoyed.
- As often as possible, a photo to accompany the dish. Preferably as freaking amazing as Clover Lane's!
NEXT WEEK is ALL ABOUT FOOD. I'm finally reviewing the French Kids Eat Everything brilliance, discussing how we plan our meals each month, and more!
p.s. Sorry for the late post. Last night was the first in which I got more than 4 hours of sleep the whole night, and we had our music class this morning. I've had a headache for 2 full weeks, but I'll be darned if today isn't looking up!
