What would you say if I told you that there's a cookbook that has Over 1100 accessible recipes? Quiet down! I can hear you hollering and I'm in Kentucky!
There is such a cookbook and all the recipes are on CD and in Microsoft Word format. They were written by a blind lady, here's the introduction from her website.
"This cookbook is a Compilation of recipes that I have collected from family and friends over the years. The cookbook evolved by putting my life-long collection of recipes onto the computer for easier accessibility for myself. When I lost my vision in December of 1968 due to an automobile accident, one of my biggest problems was having recipes at my fingertips. I frequently called friends and asked them if they had a recipe for whatever I wanted to cook or bake and I would record it on cassette tape. I have collected favorite recipes from friends in the many places I have lived during the last 40 years of my life. Over the years I have tried to organize the recipes on different cassette tapes, which is a very cumbersome way of storing recipes."
"The cookbook includes general information I received while in college majoring in Home Economics, as well as Federal Standards available on the Web. When I invite people into my home, I want them to feel comfortable. I mean it as a special gift when I say come on over and I'll make supper or a dessert."
"I use food to connect with others. I treasure memories of shared food, shared joys and challenges along life's journey. Some of my happiest times growing up were around the kitchen table when my family was eating what my mother, sister and I had prepared. It was always a joy to come home from school and be greeted by wonderful aromas of freshly baked cookies or loaves of yeast bread. I use gifts of food to give part of myself to others. The true taste comes from the emotion of the heart that inspired it and the effort of the hands that made it."
"If you get the urge to experiment by changing the ingredients in a recipe, make just one change at a time so you can clearly see the results. Don't forget to taste and sniff while you cook. That is a good way to learn which flavors and textures compliment each other. Food can not only fill up your stomach but when it is served with love you are also filled with contentment. Cooking is the greatest therapy I know."
