Change Your Sauce, Change Your Life

I'm deep enough into the process now, that I can make an announcement - I'm working on a book of vegan sauces! Just sauce. Well, and maybe a few basic dishes to go under the sauces. Did you know that most of us, when we cook at home, rely on a meager handful of 5-7 meals that we know and trust and make over and over again? For this very reason, I'm a big believer that changing up the sauce can make an average dish new and exciting, and as a result of such excitement, might indeed even change your life. Butterfly Effect: change one thing, change everything.

OK, so maybe I exaggerate the life changing superpowers of sauce, but I do know with absolute certainty that a good sauce can make a dull meal magnificent. With this in mind, I'm hard at work (and play) creating a collection of super sauces that are easy to make, and go with a variety of dishes.

I'm giddily knee deep in this project. I'm also a little surprised at how much work it is. I'm getting there though! My plan is to self-publish it through CreateSpace, same as I did with my Mandala Coloring Book. I'd like to offer it on Kindle, as well as in print. It appears to all be do-able.

I'll post updates here, and hope to have it finished by say... end of February, although that might be overly optimistic, given the time it takes to edit and have proof copies printed. Wish me luck! I'm doing it all by myself, which is how I learn the most. I'm having fun! I'm especially looking forward to a sauce-making frenzy when it comes time to take photos. Right now I'm haunting thrift stores, in search of dandy little serving bowls. It's amazing what people get rid of.

Have a happy weekend. Eat some sauce! I'll see you back here next week sometime. xoxo
