I am so excited to write this blog post and say that my first ever cookbook has finally been launched! I know it’s been a continual thing to share my Soup Maker recipes over the last fourteen months, but since late January this year, I thought it would be a good idea to create one place just for them. The idea was to give you an accessible collection that would always be at hand for when you need them, rather than trawling through each and every blog post (and there is a lot).
And I thought I’d take this opportunity to talk about the features of the book and why I’ve chosen them carefully and not rushed things.
- It Has 65 Recipes (25 Completely New).
It’s no secret that 40 of the recipes are available here on my blog and so to sell an eBook on Amazon, I thought it was only fair to give you something new too. I know it’s taken time to put them all in one space, write an introduction, photos and formatting wasn’t easy, but if I were buying something, I’d want something extra.
- Almost All Recipes Have Photos.
I love a good cook book and think there’s nothing worth than an uninspiring book without photos. Images are great for guidance but sadly I felt a handful of my early photos really brought the book down so omitted them. I’ve since bought my first DSLR and think my food styling and photography has greatly improved, but it’s now one of my favourite parts of being a food blogger.
- It’s Colour Coded for Vegetarians.
I love my vegetables more than anything else but if you’ve made any of my soups, you’ll notice I tend to only use chicken stock for flavour. However, I’ve noticed my vegetarian following keeps growing which I really appreciate; (I used to be vegan myself at Uni) so I’ve created two colour codes that were vital within the book. One colour means the recipe is already vegetarian and the other, which applies to the majority of recipes, means you only need to swap the stock.
- It Can Be Used on All Devices You Own.
If you’re going to buy an eBook, I want you to own it forever and use across many of your devices. Many eBooks can only be purchased for one device yet personally, I flit between whatever I have at hand, like my phone, tablet or laptop. And if Amazon closed down tomorrow, the eBook won’t disappear (so I’m told).
- There is No Diet Club Terms Mentioned.
As I am not an official representative of any diet clubs, there is no slimming organisation’s terms mentioned. However, all recipes are low in fat and healthy and can be eaten on many diets. To guarantee you are on the right track, you will need to check with a representative of your club with any of the recipes.
If you would like to purchase my book then that would be incredibly awesome and can be bought here on Amazon in a Kindle version. For a list of recipes, simply click on the “Look Inside” feature above the image of the book there. If you don’t have a Kindle, you can download a free Kindle reader app for your device to read it.
It would be lovely to see it in a hard copy one day, but I suppose it’s one step at a time. Right now it really feels like a dream come true compared to my days as a child typing away at my Mum’s typewriter, making up many Enid Blyton style stories.
