Caudill has collected about 50 recipes and stories from others and has 150 of her own, but she imagines a “nice, big hearty book” with several hundred recipes, a hardback with color photos, “just like the food network.”
The cookbook will have a variety of recipes, she said, including appetizers and salads. All of them will use simple ingredients from local markets.
Caudill sells designer aprons to help fuel the expensive project, and displays them on her website at firstname.lastname@example.org.
“I’ve been working on this for six to eight months, selling the aprons, getting the website done and testing and writing recipes,” she said.
Caudill believes raising money to fight breast cancer is very important. Testing and treatment are expensive, she said, and she knew someone who died because they didn’t have medical insurance.
“I want to give something back to all the women who have struggled,” she said. “I don’t want to leave this world without doing something selfless.”
