Thank you so much; I'm sorry, but politics being what they are, It probably won't happen. It would have been a lot of work job and would have required a lot of folks to work on it. I think it would have been fun, though but sometimes thing change overnight. If they ultimately change their minds, I'll let you know.
Sorry to hear that. I hope it works out somehow. Too many community and family recipes just fade away.
My wife and my sister and I put together a family cookbook, about 170 pages, so that we could easily find all our old favorites and nothing would be forgotten. It was a ton of work. And still is, we are filling in gaps and also adding new recipes as we work them out. Never had any idea of publishing, it is just for the family to use.
