Smashwords Interview

What kind of books are you writing?
I am publishing high-quality themed cookbooks featuring inspiring delicacies made from scratch with natural food. My insightful recipes are kitchen-/time-tested and they contain easy instructions with detailed know-how and precise measurements in both imperial and metric units. They display appropriate kitchen tools and how to use them, provide valuable tips, list substitutions, they yield boundless variety, and feature full-color photographs to increase perception. Tastelishes cookbooks provide first-class recipes that are kitchen/time-tested showcasing flavorful, healthy and nutritious contemporary, old-world-style, and traditional dishes that kick boring, bland, and heavy out of the kitchen. The process is kept simple and practical techniques are applied throughout. My baking books showcase among aromatic oven-baked breads also fine cakes, cookies, sweets and desserts that attempt a different flour/sugar ratio which results in exquisite flavor and fabulous texture. The combination and ratio along with the correct type of ingredients that is applied in Tastelishes recipes makes all the difference in the world.
Are Tastelishes recipes complicated or does it take forever to make the dishes?
Tastelishes recipes are simple yet glorious. The majority of dishes do not cook very long at all which preserves essential nutrients. Other dishes like chicken stock, beef consomme, homemade stews or ragouts simmer by themselves within a quite reasonable amount of time and require very little attention to none. With some recipes, the process can be streamlined without sacrificing quality. Many of the recipes display top-notch dishes that take only 30 minutes and less, perfect for weeknights, holidays, or festivities, and entertaining with e.g. appetizers, meat and side dishes, soups, even cakes, cookies, and desserts. Creating a bouquet of flavor, pleasing texture, and mouthwatering looks is achieved by the use of pertinent ingredients, applying the proper ratio, precise measurements (especially when baking), and working with the correct kitchen tools. Tastelishes passes along the know-how and inspiration to make cooking and baking from scratch with natural ingredients a joyful, healthy, memorable, reassuring, and impressive experience.
