Show me the money!
From the Kitchen of Christilisa Updates
When I started this Substack, I had no idea what I wanted for it. I knew I wanted to help people tell more stories-the questions was how? As time has passed, I’ve had various forms of writing here about things I enjoy. With every post, I wasn’t sure my point was getting across. After much thought, I’m moving to a more essay structured format. I want y’all to understand, whatever stories I decide to share, how they impact my life personally so you may see how they can impact your life as well.
The goal is to have a weekly post. Each week will cover one of the following:
Book review (fiction to nonfiction- various genres)
An Alabama recipe along with some history
A random topic I feel compelled to talk about
I have also decided to finally go paid. In addition to the four post, you will receive two additional posts a month.
One post will focus on a menu created from the cookbook featured along with the recipes and thoughts about the prep process.
The second post will expand upon the other free post with author interviews, music playlist, giveaways, and more.
You can subscribe for $7/month or $75/year. There is also an option of being a founding member where in addition to the above, you will get a copy of every cookbook and book reviewed (they may be digital and/or physical copies) and an additional post named, Modern Tradition. This will be my family recipes the traditional way and also a modern take on that recipe or ingredient. I have the price set at $750 but you can choose the amount you would like to pay as long as it is greater than $75.
From the Kitchen of Christilisa is a reader-supported publication. To receive new posts and support my work, consider becoming a free or paid subscriber.
If you can’t afford to go paid, that’s okay. Being a free subscriber lets me know that this writing thing isn’t for nothing and you can also Buy Me A Book to support me in my writing journey. I have a massive cookbook buying habit and you can help it along ;). You can also subscribe to my Buy Me A Coffee, where I share the behind the scenes of becoming a full time writer in not only the nonfiction world but also fiction. I’m also on MSN. Most of my posts from here post there but I will be sharing more evergreen content on that platform. Follow me!
Y’alls’ support means everything to me. I appreciate every one of you and thank you until infinity for enjoying my writing.
Until next time,
