What should I name our cookbook?
After all of your good feedback on what I should write next...I decided to do something
entirely different. My father's been telling me for years that I need to
compile our recipes into an in-season, homegrown cookbook, and I've
been ignoring him...but the time finally seemed right! Which means,
you'll soon have several polished recipes in ebook form to enjoy in the
near future. And, in the meantime, I'm in search of the perfect title.

Titles are my weak point,
but they seem to make or break a non-fiction book. I could go with a
boring, literal (but likely to capture keyword searchers) title like
Locavore's Cookbook or In Season Cookbook. I could piggy-back on
possible name-brand recognition with The Walden Effect Table or (if my
publisher says it's okay) The Weekend Homesteader's Kitchen. Or I could
go with something entirely outside-the-box...which I haven't come up
Feel free to submit your
title suggestions using the comment form below. To sweeten the pot (and
to continue cleaning out my bookshelves), if I choose your title, I'll
mail you slightly used paperback copies of Moosewood Cookbook, Preserving Food Without Freezing or Canning, and Wild Fermentation. I'm looking forward to hearing from you!
