My first deadline is fast approaching. Half the manuscript (150 recipes) is due a week from Monday, so this week and next I’ll be at the computer. I much prefer the hands-on creative work in the kitchen to the t-e-d-i-o-u-s data entry, but both are a part of the process. Last week I squeezed in a few more recipes before giving myself over fully to transcription. Wanted to share them (partly so I can remind myself I’ll be back there soon!) Just as a reminder, these photos do not link to recipes. They’re just a sneak peek at some of what will be in the book this fall.
