Oh Crumb…More Competition Although we are in obvious competition with other printed cookbooks, we recognize that the internet presents us with an even more formidable rival. Millions of recipes are published online and are readily available for download, printing or copying; however, we have yet to discover a cookbook line or internet site that focuses on cooking or baking with crumbs.
Competitive Stance We are unique because: Each recipe has a “crumb component”. We provide the only compilation of crumb recipes. Our recipes focus on using common kitchen ingredients. Simple recipes that are easy to manipulate and make your own.
Competitive Stance We are unique because: Our recipes are not only delicious, they are “fast, cheap and easy”! Recipes do not require extensive preparation, cooking or clean up times. Suggested ingredients are relatively inexpensive and can often be “swapped” with alternative/seasonal/cheaper or more exotic ingredients . Recipes are kid, singleton, and soccer parent friendly!
A Bit More About Our Product Laminated pages help combat any potential ‘mess’. Written in layman’s terms – NO JARGON! Our books have personality and humor! Fun facts, tips and quirky kitchen stories will complement recipes throughout the cookbooks.
