Right now I'm reading "Offering to Isis" by M Isadora Forrest.  I'm really liking it.  Having shrines and making offerings feels like the right thing for me to be doing right now. 

Now, I do love Isis and all but then there's the rest of the pantheon. I was going to try to adapt the rituals in this book for other Netjeru, but perhaps another author has saved me the trouble (?)

Any help would be appreciated.  I don't see myself as going orthodox or being a very strict reconstructionist.  I do want some kind of regular practice that has some historical basis. Something I can learn by heart, get comfortable with, and slowly make my own.

I don't know of any books on the subject.

However, the standard basic offering liturgy (used by both Kemetic organisations and the Church of the Eternal Source) is based in the Pyramid Texts, verse, uh.  Utterance 269.  Various other texts from those are used by various organisations; I can throw more things out for you to look at.  (Honestly, I want to get a copy of the Pyramid Texts to see what sorts of liturgies I can find in there myself, though I'll probably stick with 269 for general use.)

Standard procedure would be to have a ritual bath or at lesat washing-up (I generally shower), and offer fire, incense, and libations of cool water.  Plus whatever other offerings one might make.

Check out Daily Life of the Egyptian Gods by Dimitri Meeks and Christine Favard-Meeks. It's probably one of the best books describing Egyptian deities and associated ritual and history.

If we're talking about Isis and not Aset....

Have you read:
Isis Magic by M. Isidora Forrest or Mysteries of Isis by deTraci Regula?  The first one is heavily ritualized and Hermetic in nature while the second one is very kitchen witch like as far as ritual goes. 

Have you also read Reed's Circle of Isis?  It has some Tamaren Wiccan rituals in there. 

Darkhawk answered the traditional format of ritual for Kemetics. 

There is also Eye of the Sun by Kerry Wisner.  It's Kemetic though and may be too Recon for you? 
The rituals here can be adapted to any Netjer, but for the book it focuses on Hethert. 

There is also Tamara Siuda's book The Ancient Egyptian Prayerbook which has a ritual there for any Netjer.

I would like to point out that these authors and Ellen Cannon Reed are not Kemetic Recons.  They are influenced by Hermetic Magic or Neo-Wicca or Traditional Wicca. 

Offerings to Isis is a good book and she does take from some Kemetic sources, but I don't think her approach is Kemetic Recon. 

YMMV.
