I heard a story on NPR a couple of months ago. It was about how, now, with social media, some authors are able to get input from readers as they write. I can’t find a link to the story or remember how it all worked … but I do remember thinking, “What a good idea!” And, “Wouldn’t that be a smart way to write a cookbook?!” This method would have limitations, of course, because people like to eat different things and have access to different ingredients. But on some level, don’t we all need similar recipes?
Like, something nutritious and delicious for a weeknight meal.
And something that the kids will eat.
A good cookie recipe for holidays and bake sales.
A variety of side dishes to keep things interesting.
An elegant (but still easy) dish for entertaining.
And a really yummy cupcake recipe for birthday parties and special occasions.
Those are just some of the recipes in my new iPad App, Cocina Marie, now available in iTunes for $4.99. I’ll be adding recipes on a regular basis, so my hope is that this is one “cookbook” that will never get stale. Plus, with this App, you can add your own notes and pictures right there in the program, and easily share both with friends on Facebook … thus, avoiding the hassle of printing recipes and then hand writing (and inevitably losing) any notes to yourself.
Most important, because I will be frequently adding new recipes to this App, YOU can have a say in what’s included! Really, I would love your feedback — what you like, what you don’t, and what you think I should add. Thanks in advance dear readers — I’m looking forward to hearing from you. Thanks also to the nice and very patient people at Cooked.it, who are responsible for creating and maintaining this App. And as always, thanks to John and Jack for your love and support while I worked on this project.
