Thanks so much for all your kind words on my last post – it really made my day(s) to feel an outpouring of love for this little project. And speaking of project, how could I even think of giving this blog up, when I just went through my photo files and rediscovered all these “lost” recipes I had been planning for my next zine? I included a random smattering above, lots of it summer-influenced, which is making me excited for the warmer seasons ahead. And hungry. Pretty hungry.

I say zine, but it would of course be super awesome to one day get to publish a cookbook with pictures and all that. I do, however, appreciate the handmade aspect of a zine, which is the major reason I don’t see myself ever making any e-books. Maybe I’ll include a little photo insert page with the zine. I like having a tangible, personal creation…my dilemma when it comes to “making it” in an internet-driven world big on social media and digital files. I’m also somewhat reluctantly working on making a Facebook page for the blog for the times when I want to blabber on a bit without actually posting an entry. I think it will help keep me motivated to blog, and reduce the amount of food-related obsession I subject my friends to with my personal account (it appears I make people hungry). I’ll let you know here when you can get to “liking” it (ugh, I hate saying that).

I will also, of course, keep you updated on when I’m ready for testers. I need to flesh some things out and get organized, as I’d like to have most or all of the recipes I’m thinking about before I start asking for help. It’s been awhile since the first zine, and this time I’m really feeling good about owning this project and seeing it through. Making things and sharing them is my biggest motivator in life. So I’m going to start making, and then I’m going to start sharing. Hooray!

  4. Yea! I’ve missed you! And this reminds me to pull out my little Swell zine and get to cookin’! Can’t wait for the next one.

  5. [...] While I still eat a lot of regular green salads, I’ve also been trying to keep things interesting by making different kinds of veggie salads, like Spicy Radish Slaw, which will be in the next zine. It’s a simple slaw of shredded radishes with cilantro, serrano chilies, lime juice and a couple spices, and it’s tasty on its own or alongside Mexican-style food (personally, I ate it with quinoa, black beans, and Pineapple-Ginger Salsa [pictured in this post]!). [...]

    Hooray for another Swell zine! I recently made some more of the sweet potato black bean burgers for a pot luck picnic and they went down well :)

    I am so happy to see this! I still make recipes (especially the red bean quinoa) from the first zine all the time!
