To Deliciousness and Beyond Cookbook

The Cookbook

To Deliciousness and Beyond is a 130+ page cookbook featuring over 50 dessert, beverage and bread recipes. Each recipe has a full-color photo to accompany it along with a clear list of ingredients and directions.

The Backstory 
The original concept for my cookbook was simply to compile my recipes to one day pass down to my son. Baking in the kitchen together is my favorite mother/son activity and I thought a cookbook was a fantastic way to pass along my skills and passion. I began writing after his birth while stationed in Italy and spent the next four years working on it. Our travels of Europe and the United States, as a military family, have inspired several of the recipes, of which I put my own little twist on. Examples include Croque Monsieur Stuffed Pretzels (France), Apple Strudel (Germany), and Cannoli Ice Cream (Italy). I have poured my heart into this book. Stories accompany several recipes and family photos of our travels and time in the kitchen are also included.


The Outcome

My hope is to make cookbook writing a career. As a military spouse having a portable career is ideal. Being able to help provide more income for our family and to provide more opportunities for our son would be absolutely incredible.

The Details 
The main purpose of this Kickstarter is to raise enough money to place a bulk order of hardcover books via Blurb to lower the retail cost for customers. My stretch goal is to raise enough to order an additional bulk shipment of softcover to allow more options for customers.

Please see below for a breakdown of costs that this fundraiser would cover.

Risks and challenges

Because this cookbook is completed, the risk and challenges are very low. Printing costs have been discussed with printer which should avoid any unforeseen costs. All books will be shipped directly from me to you to avoid any issues with a warehouse.
