Synopsis

This book was compiled with low vision and visually-impaired persons in mind, however, I'm sure the large print format will be helpful to all who love to cook. I had a wonderful time collecting these favorite recipes from my family and friends and I hope you will enjoy it as well. Happy Cooking.
 

About Nancy Rezendes

See more books from this Author
My name is Nancy. I have been "Legally Blind" since 2004 from Macular Degeneration. Two things I miss most are driving and reading. the driving issue cannot be resolved, but the reading issue can. There are many solutions for this situation: magnifying glasses, books on compact disks, and, if you have a computer, you can download books to disks and/or MP3 players (many libraries have the capability for you to download books). Also, the National Library Service will give you, at no cost to you, a digital player for listening to audio books and music. If you are interested in obtaining more information and you live in Massachusetts, you can call Perkins Braille and Talking Book Library at 800-852-3133. the staff is very helpful and there are over 70,000 talking books available. If you live in another state, you can call information for your state's National Library Service number. In January 2006 I attended the Carroll Center for the Blind in Newton, Massachusetts. the administrators, instructors, and staff were wonderful, and I learned how to use the functional vision I have, to my advantage. I had a hard time reading recipes, so I decided to try recording recipes onto cassette tapes. After doing a few, I realized it was more trouble than it was worth, because it was difficult to find the recipe I wanted. That's when I started typing recipes in large print on my computer with a program called Zoomtext and inserting them into a plastic protector sheet and a three-ring binder. I then decided to publish a cookbook in large print. Because there are varying degrees of vision loss, it was difficult to choose which recipes to include in the book. So I decided to compromise and use some recipes with only a few ingredients and some with several. the following pages include recipes from family, friends, and the backs and sides of boxes, jars, and packages. I hope this book helps you as much as my binder has helped me. Happy Cooking!!!!Nancy Rezendes
