What inspired you to write your book?
My remembrances of grandma’s great cooking.
About your Book:
90 GREAT mid-western recipes for just $.99 cents!
All recipes were taken from Grandma’s handwritten recipes that she wrote down as she made them up, were passed on to her by her mother, or were dictated to her by her friends as they bowled, canned their harvests, or just passed the time sitting on the porch talking about their families.
These are great original recipes from America’s heartland!

How do you see writing a food/cookbook as different from writing other genres of books?
These were all gleaned from handwritten recipes. To grandma’s knowledge none had ever been published.
Advice to someone that is thinking about or currently working on a food book or cookbook
How did you decide how to publish your book and where is it published through:
I first published this years ago through a small publisher called Bookshelf Publishing. Grandma was still alive then and thought it was funny that anyone would be interested in her recipes. Now it is published through Amazon and CreateSpace.
Since 1976, Mr. Darling has written and published numerous short stories, poems, and magazine articles. He has written one play (included in the book Woman In Black) that has been produced in London, Canada and the USA.
