So I was going through the recipe thread, wading through the huge amount of comments posted there and realized that I had no idea where I even wanted to start.
I'm an innovative girl, and when I became mentally roadblocked by the sheer volume and mass disorganization, it got me thinking.
Here is my project idea: A 3FC LAWL Cookbook made for us, by us. We already have a plethora of recipes in the recipe thread, and a smattering of others scattered throughout the many other threads. We all have short cuts and tricks we use to make this diet easier. How nice would it be to have everything in an organized, searchable format?
Here is what I was thinking, and please chime in with your ideas and thoughts and questions:
*If you go through the COD, which many of us do not, you can buy the LAWL cookbook which has some pretty good recipes. But not everyone can purchase this or has access to it.
*We have a recipe thread here that is filled with random recipes and ideas
*How many of us are bone tired of coming up with new ideas for dinner or lunch and just want someone, anyone to give us a good and easy idea that we hadn't ever thought of?
*One of my favorite websites in the world is AllRecipes.com because you can read the recipes, see pictures of the prepared food and read comments by real people who have tried different alterations to the recipe which I then can incorporate.
I'm pretty creative and handy with the Do-It-Yourself stuff. I'd be willing to collect recipes, ideas, tips 'n' tricks, cooking preperations, even a listing of must-have kitchen items for people just getting started that could show up in the cookbook. I'd be willing to format the project and print them off and put them together in an easy to use and durable book form (the advantages of having the material and equipment to do this at my work) and then mail them out to anyone who wants one.
I have some ideas that could even make the books alterable; as in new pages can be printed everly 4 or 5 months and emailed or sent to everyone to add to their books when we collect new recipes and ideas, especially when the holidays arrive.
A friend of mine did something like this for her church and it looked very cool.
What do you guys think? Would anyone be interested in something like this? Putting it together would be the easy part, collecting recipes and ideas from all of you would be the only time consuming aspect so it would have to be a project that has genuine interest. What do you think?
