For years as an innkeeper, guests would ask if I had a cookbook they could buy. For years I said over the winter, I was going to put one together. I never did. But Down East Magazine’s book division approached me and asked if I wanted to write one in April 2010. And November 1, 2010 I submitted my manuscript, photos and all. It was a busy summer!
