It has been quite a while. For now, let’s just say I was busy… and uninspired. So what’s coming up on Cassandra’s Tears? I’m glad you asked.
First, I’m reading Lawrence Krauss’ A Universe from Nothing and this has inspired me, much the same way that Your Inner Fish did. So, I’ll attempt a chapter by chapter review.
Second, I’ve been working on a book. However, the entire point behind the book… well… it’s a cookbook. Some time ago, I found one of my grandmother’s recipe files. I remember many of these recipes and I loved them at the time. I also know how hard it is for some people to get into cooking, which I do enjoy sometimes. So, my intention was to write a part cookbook part kitchen survival guide (what to buy, how to get quality equipment and food, and how to prep the food). I’m not a chef though.
I’ve decided to release many of these recipes into the wild… here. In another generation, these recipes might have been lost forever. Heck, a fire or even a plumbing leak could have destroyed them. I made my grandmother’s apple cake and realized that it probably hasn’t been made in over 30 years.
Third, I’ve also started another book, this time a fantasy book. I’ll be publishing a few bits here.
Fourth, I’m going to see about starting a tip jar. If you like the recipes or the story or my efforts at the chapter by chapter reviews of science books, then feel free to drop me a couple of bucks. The money will go toward a private domain and server for this website and maybe a forum as well.
