One Pot, One Planet

One Pot, One Planet

My husband is a great cook.

Yes, Bookmaking!!  Our favorite meal is so good that we created a cookbook about it!

Nicholas states, “Food is for nourishment, eating is for pleasure! Combine the two and create a healthy attitude about eating. Forgo stressful planning and shopping, and enjoy a delicious, savory meal.”

A One Pot Meal is a simple pleasure. Cook it once and enjoy it at least a second time. Find your nearest farmer’s market, purchase the freshest ingredients, inhale the aromatic herbs, enjoy the sweet labor of chopping by hand.

on-demand bookmaking is so creative!

I laid out the unique format in Adobe InDesign and published via Blurb. I prefer to create my own layout rather than use the pre-formatted ones. This method is more challenging but the result is worth the effort.

Text by Nicholas, edited by yours truly. Photographs by Nicholas, Jesse, me, and Tobin too! This book is a true labor of love.

Below are some spreads from the 54-page hardcover.

Insider story: I was never satisfied with the “headless” cover photo and I planned to revise it, so I voiced my displeasure to the photographer (Jesse) and to the model (Zoe). This, of course, set off a wicked round of teasing from the peanut gallery …thus the series of out-takes below.  “Oh really, Mom?!”

Photobombing – Photoshop Montage – Jesse & Jaime go flying!

With all of the great photos I have at hand, there are many opportunities to have fun … SO… pardon me.
It’s time for …

Photobombing!!

As you roam abroad, so far away, you are always in my heart.

Travel safely!  Spread goodwill and creativity – and return to me with fond tales to tell.

 

In the words of Mohammed,

…Don’t tell me how educated you are,
tell me how much you have travelled!
