Christmas Cookbook

So for Christmas I got a few things for my boyfriend: new shoes, funky socks, a mug that looks like a camera lens... and I also made him a little cookbook! He plans on moving out on his own for the first time in a couple months, and he doesn't know the first thing about cooking. So I gave him some basic tips on how to prepare foods, clean his kitchen, and some easy little recipes. He loved it, especially cause I did all the drawings myself! :)

It was only like 20 pages but I worked for a good month on it. I put it together and printed it with Blurb, which was very simple and professional and I highly recommend it. They even let others see a preview of the book! Here it is in case you are interested: 
Here are some of the little drawings I did to go along with the book:

Intro: This is a Kitchen
Starches (Breads, pasta, rice, and potatoes)

Spices, Herbs, Wet and Dry Goods
I gave him lists of alll the basics, from flour to dill weed (we're Polish and use that on everything)

Cookware and cleaning supplies
