Chapter One

Do your regular exercise routine or start a new one.

Let your guests know how many will be coming and ask them to make that many copies of each of the recipes they're bringing. You could even make the get-together a potluck, with each guest bringing one of the dishes

(A small, inexpensive notebook you can carry in your bag works just as well as a fancy journal.)

workable, or more aesthetically pleasing, or just highlight a piece of furniture you're proud of.
