I'm beginning to think it's time you considered turning your amazing recipes (and the accompanying advice and stories) into a book!
Totally agree.
I've just spent over and hour drooling over the photos and recipes on EE's fb page, and I wish I'd read it a year ago.

Wow☺️thank you very much blueangel!

I wonder, presumably you're not a member if the Blog ( which was a group initially)
Can you as an 'outsider ' access the files/photos all the same? I don't mean the main posts, but the word.doc files in there.

Re: Eating and living on a tight budget in Switzerland

Funny that, the last time I bump bump bumpety bumped that thread, I had my accident a few days later ( is there a curse on annoying bumpediybump EF members ).....

Ahh stuff that,I'll take the risk and do it again!!

The Blog is getting slowly, but surely back to normal service.

Want to know what cheap yummies you can create out of elder flowers??
I just posted a 10 page file about elderflower and berries and other benefits of the tree, stuffed to the brim with ideas, recipes etc of what I have made so far.

Like wild garlic? Just as well, there's a file in there telling you with what other cheap ingredients you can make easy preserves or preservable stuff.

There is quite some stuff to discover already and i constantly add more files and of course regular postings.

If you have to watch your pennies in Switzerland it is the place to be, errrhhmm to read!

It is on purpose 'open' so everyone can have a gander, you just can't comment.

Can't believe I missed it until now, EastEnders! I just subscribed to your FB group and look forward to reading up. I have a few upcoming lengthy trips, and your blog looks a lot more interesting than work spreadsheets while in transit

Re: Eating and living on a tight budget in Switzerland

Bump Bump Bumpety Bump


It is not about 5* eating or how can I survive with 300k gross per year in Zürich, nor about; should I choose the Cayenne or the Jag as city car.

The blog wants to show how to get by reasonably well on a very small budget.

It is less than a year old, but already stuffed to the hilt with simple ideas for non-expensive dishes, loads of files on the topic of budgeting/saving and ideas of how to make the most out of very little or ideas on what to make with one simple ingredient.

This is interspersed with the occasional jabbering ( read Recycling) of yours truly from her long gone english columnist days

Always happy to welcome new readers!!

Re: Eating and living on a tight budget in Switzerland

Aaaaaannnd..... bumping this thread again, as I shamelessly admit, I would like to have more readers for my jabbering and scribblings.

Quite a lot of EF'ers already patiently enduring (and hopefully reading) Ms EE's chatter about living on a tight budget and some more and those EF'ers could be asked to provide references so you know it is worth your while.

See you on the 'other side'

Re: Eating and living on a tight budget in Switzerland

Hello Mrs Eastenders,
I have read the start of this thread and was interested to read your blog or facebook pages but as I do not have a facebook account I am unable to read it.
I thought I read somewhere on here that it was possible to do so without a FB account, is that so or not?
I don't wish to cause any extra work for you, just would be glad to read of your budget savings without having to sign up for an account I really would prefer not to have.
Merry Christmas to you,

Cass

Re: Eating and living on a tight budget in Switzerland

Hi cassel

Thank you so much for your interest.
I do totally understand your reasoning in regards to FB.

Unfortunately, when I started to write again some years ago and set up the Swissgerman Blog first (and 2 years ago the English one)

I set that up as group and not as a Page (a FB page is what can be read without an FB account).

Unfortunately, I am not a smartass when it comes to setting up webpages ( and none of the free blog pages offer me the same as that groupthingy does) and so chances are slim of it getting onto www elsewhere, as it has to be free


I have written tons of material, so a printed book would be another option ....how does one go about to do/achieve/get that? I've no clue.

Re: Eating and living on a tight budget in Switzerland

I‘ve had friends use lulu.com and createspace via amazon to self publish (print on demand). The idea being that you can create your book with minimal investment. It‘s just not completely free. Another idea is to have a blog - not a facebook page or group.


And, for minimal investment on your part, sometimes you can accept advertising. Lots of cooking blogs do this.


Just some ideas.

Re: Eating and living on a tight budget in Switzerland

Thanks for the Tips edot

I used to write a blog (albeit not just a foodie one) in the mid-noughties, from the Blog templates I have found so far none is really convincing me.

I have to admit the last I knew ( about 10 years ago) about self publishing, was that you had to pay beforehand for a minimum amount of printed books and this went easily into several thousand francs. Money I simply haven't got.

That Lulu page looks really good and as soon as the holidays, and my cooking frenzy are over, I will certainly see to study it thoroughly and see if I can get to grips with it.


Whittling my stuff down to what could go into it.....apart from the obvious files about basic budgeting etc

Any of you long term SSBKB readers, got a fave recipe/article or two that should be in a book for certain?

Re: Eating and living on a tight budget in Switzerland

Hello again Mrs Eastenders,
thank you for your responses. I do understand that as a busy person and freely giving of your knowledge it should be as easy as possible.
It was very nice to see an alternative given by edot, hopefully you will give it some thought as I feel it would be a shame to limit your contributions to just one source.

May I ask what the acronym SSBKB means?

Cass
