In 2005, I was working as a food scientist developing new products for a gobal cereal company when I discovered the world of food blogs. I’d always longed to write recipes for a living, however, it seemed like an impossible career to crack into. But anyone could start a blog... and so began stonesoup. After a few months writing, I knew this was what I was meant to do. I invested in a digital camera and by trial and a lot of error began to take photos of my food. In January 2010, I took the next step on my blogging path and quit my day job to become a full-time blogger. stonesoup is a blog that helps people become better home cooks by using a minimalist approach to cooking. It allows me to use my food science knowledge for good. I focus on reducing the number of ingredients, the amount of equipment, the number of steps involved, and the time we spend in the kitchen to a minimum so we can focus what’s important. It’s about simple, wholesome, delicious food that is easy to prepare and still fun and satisfying to eat. Why the FREE e-cookbook? Over the past year I’ve been writing a series of recipes that have only 5 ingredients and take 10 minutes to prepare. They’ve been published in a number of locations.
I thought it would be useful to have these recipes all together in the one handy ebook that you can keep on your laptop or computer at work as an at-your-fingertips reference for when you need inspiration for what to cook for dinner. If you do find this recipe book useful, I’d really appreciate it if you shared the love and forwarded it to your family and friends. Or better yet - send them the link to stonesoup (www.thestonesoup.com) so they can download their own copy and discover the wonderful world of food blogging themselves
