I had over 420 photos. There were step by step photos of every recipe. One disappointment for me was that I was forced to omit over 200 photos, because it was cost prohibitive. I still left a lot of step by step photos for the more complicated recipes that you may not be familiar with. Now when I make something new, I still take pictures of the process. Maybe I will write another cookbook, or I could use them for my posts. Either way I don't let an opportunity for taking pictures pass me by. I like to take pictures of one plate meals. One way to eat healthy and delicious is to fix a plate with half salad or green vegetables, one quarter with carb and 6 oz. meat for your dinner. Do not go back for seconds.
