WOULD ANYONE BE INTERESTED IN A COOKBOOK? JEAN AND ANNA CAME TO ME WITH THE IDEA. IT WOULD BE THE RECIPES THAT JEAN AND ANNA HAD PUT ON NEW YORK STATE OF MIND. THERE WOULD ALSO BE SOME THAT HAVEN'T BEEN ON. MAYBE EVEN ONE OR TWO OF MY MOTHER'S. WE ARE JUST IN THE TALKING STAGES RIGHT NOW. IF THERE WAS A COOKBOOK IS THERE ANYTHING SPECIAL YOU WOULD LIKE IN THE COOKBOOK? HOW MUCH WOULD YOU BE WILLING TO PAY FOR THE BOOK?
ANOTHER THOUGHT WAS A COOKBOOK OF THE ALL THE CHRISTMAS RECIPES WE HAD ON THE LAST TWO YEARS, PLUS THE ONES WE PUT ON THIS YEAR. OR MAYBE A BOOK OF ALL THE EASTER RECIPES WE HAD ON? WHAT DO YOU THINK?
