While working on the recipes for my grilled cheese cookbook, Melt: 100 Amazing Adventures in Grilled Cheese, I believed that I could use as many recipes from the blog as I wanted. However, that was most definitely not the case. I was only able to use 15 recipes, with the other 85 being completely new/original. The publisher rightly said that if people bought the book and then visited the blog and all the recipes were the same, they would never return. And if visitors of the blog wanted to buy the book and they saw all the same recipes, they wouldn’t buy the book. Smart thinking.
Up until now, unless you went through the blog and compared every recipe to the book, you had no idea which recipes from the blog were also in the book. That is until now. I have gone ahead and added a badge (right) to each and every recipe that is also featured in Melt: 100 Amazing Adventures in Grilled Cheese. This way, as people are looking through the blog, they will know right away that that recipe is also featured in my grilled cheese cookbook. Pretty cool, huh? I am also listing them below for everyone to view as well.
