Some of you may remember that I was going to make a mad dash to complete a family cookbook to give out for Cookie Day.

Cookie Day was yesterday.

Did I complete the cookbook?

No.  

No I did not.

I decided to add Fair Foods, and favorite noshes from restaurants to the pre-packaged Snacks Foods I'd originally planned to do

I've collected, tested, adapted, and formatted the following recipes:

Now I just have these to go.  They'll all been tested and adapted and tweaked to meet my standards, just not formatted yet. And not ready to give to my family. They didn't get this cookbook as a gift for this year's Cookie Day.

That means I have a whole year to finish this off and perfect it for them.  I can include new pictures, but I'm not expanding the list of noshes and snacks. I've got over 130 recipes here, that's plenty of snackies and noshes and nibbles.

I do have the recipes already done, they just happen to be scattered among spiral bound notebooks, 3x5 cards, and pocket notebooks.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
