Writing Recipes for Publication

Not that Miss Snark will ever use this info, given the large, white, fire burning appliance was removed and replaced with a file cabinet to store take out menus in alpha and geo order, but some of you brave culinary souls will find this writing recipes for publication of use.

Miss Snark looks forward to your publication party. She'll even bring her ambulatory doggie bag.

as usual, stolen from a post at the toolbox!

Ooh, all good avice. I've actually written a cookbook--not for publication, but as a gift for family--and I was amazed how much of this stuff I left out when, recently, I contributed a few to an author's group anthology. Luckily I caught it, but I wish I'd thought of that stuff earlier.

Miss Snark,
Which sort of bag are you referring to? The NYC regulation doggie bag meant for streetside receptacles, or the one for post-dining, at home experiences?

What an interesting site! I have published articles on pots and pans, but not actual recipes. This is a whole new world!

I think MS means the actual dog.

Thanks for the link. I should pass this on to my mom--she loves to experiment with new recipes, and I'm sure she has enough to make a book by now.

I have to say I'm always a little amazed by people who can manage to not have to cook. As a professional starving artist in between stints as a professional starving college student, I literally can't afford to not do my own cooking. Plus I think my mom might disown me if I replaced my oven with a filing cabinet (especially since my parents own the house I currently live in...).

Thank you for the link, Miss Snark. Recently I've been playing with the idea of turning my recipes into publishable material, and this article is very helpful toward that idea.
