What am I talking about?
Well, most of you are Recipe Records Cookbooks fans and are aware of one of the hippest features for the books: The Suggested Song List
My late friend and co-author, Maggie McHugh and I, cleverly combined our rock and roll recipes with music. The great addition to the cookbook was the suggested song list contained on each layout. To me, THAT is the greatest part of the book. I always said it was about the music. But, the recipes, stories and trivia are pretty spectacular, too :)
Beam me up, Scotty.
Well, Alexa was given to me as a gift by Ms. Kessler and I was not sure at first if this was a path I should walk. Note: Do not say "record" and "Alexa" in the same conversation (or same room for that matter, trust me). But I soon found out that while I am slicing and dicing, I can tell Amazon's AI tool, Alexa, to play The Meters, or Otis Redding, or opera music. I can ask her to turn up the volume, or turn it down.
Inject Recipe Records Suggested Song Lists:
Ms. Kessler pointed out to me that while you are making a recipe out of one of the cookbooks, you can ask Alexa to play each song on the Suggested Song List.
This is what Maggie and I had in mind some 10 years ago when we wrote the first cookbook. We wanted you to enjoy the music and the food. So, get those Recipe Records Cookbooks out and turn up THE BEAT in your kitchen today!
