If I am being honest, there a handful of things that I avoid on a regular basis, mostly because I don't understand how they work or why they are necessary. Aside from teaching myself Photoshop via YouTube videos, most technology and apps tend to fall into a category of perpetual neglect (ignorance is bliss, right?). In fact, updating my OS even gets abandoned on a regular basis.

But with recipes chosen and a dinner party planned, I knew I wanted to commemorate the occasion (and welcome fall) in a unique, creative way that went beyond sharing bits and pieces via social feeds.

Much to my surprise and excitement, Blurb makes creating books of any variety easy and yes, fun - we are talking layouts, design and editing, it is a one stop shop! As a visually sensitive person, I knew I needed a program the was simple and intuitive, and was thrilled when I found curating a narrative through Bookwright to be second nature. For Fall Fare I created 5 recipes for an autumn vegetarian gathering - my only regret was that I did not have more content to add...but there's always next time.

Typically after the recipes are formed and the meal served, only memories remain. So creating the cookbook, something tangible I can reuse and reference over and over again, prolonged the fond moments of dining with friends and experimenting with fall produce - two of my favorite things.
