M(i)s Ch(i)ef™'s Month of Meals

M(i)s Ch(i)ef™'s Month of Meals by A M(i)s Ch(i)ef™ compilation of recipes by Michelle Elliott | Make Your Own Book

I was so excited to hear that my lovely friend Tracy was inspired by my meal planning and had decided to try it out with great result. She was enjoying the variety and that she didn't have to think each evening of something to concoct from the ingredients in the fridge! However, unlike me, she didn't have enough recipes to choose.

I decided to make her a cookbook! At first I considered the recipe journal, but the printing and cutting and gluing of recipes sounded like too much of a craft project so I explored the online world and found the perfect site: - an online book creator. My recipes were not original (you'll see I attributed them all to their original source), but all came from my weekly meal plans and I wanted to make it as simple as possible for my friend, a mother of twins with one on the way, so I compiled enough for a month of meals to be followed in order to give the dishes each evening variety and balance if you followed the book all the way through. It was so fun remembering, finding my favourites (mainly from and ordering them how I would plan my weekly menu!

Next step was to compile them all into a Blurb book which was easy with their simple to use and format software. I put together my cover and there it was - my first cookbook ready to serve!

Blurb printed and shipped my book and Tracy received it with delight yesterday!

The cool thing is that I can share Tracy's book with you! If you are inspired to try it for a month, you can order a hard copy for yourself on Blurb, but equally you can leaf through the pages right here!

Wishing you a delicious month of yummy mouthwatering meals and watch out for more!

Lovely to meet you and funny to hear we went to the same school in Edinburgh! I've not heard of this book compilation tool. Thanks for sharing since it looks just great. Bon weekend!
