A Cookbook coming soon!

A Cookbook coming soon!

I am super excited to announce that I have a great cookbook coming out very soon, like within the next couple of weeks (woo hoo!). We have been hard at work putting the book together over the past months and I am thrilled to have my hands on an advance copy so I can tell you and show you all about it!


About 6 months ago I was contacted by a great company named Chatbooks. I bet a lot of you have heard of them. They specialize in printing small (6×6) photo books that are easy to put together and reasonably priced. They asked me if I’d be interested in partnering with them to produce some cookbooks for my readers.

I said yes. 🙂 I’ve had many, many requests to write a cookbook over the past 6 years I’ve been blogging, but haven’t ever found quite the right publisher (or time!) to do one. Chatbooks has been great to work with and I’m hoping that I can produce a new cookbook every 6 months or so. Each book in the series will have a theme.


The first book is all about 30 Minute Dinner Recipes.


It’s loaded with many fan favorites, like these yummy Buffalo Chicken Tacos.


There will be 28 recipes in each book!


The books are small and can be stored easily in a kitchen drawer or cabinet for handy dinner making access.


I’m super excited about this project, gang. I hope you will find these books to be useful and wonderful.

The first book in the series 30 Minute Dinner Recipes will be for sale soon (very soon, within the next couple of weeks) and can only be purchased online. Cost will be $11.99 with free shipping. Once the books are ready to order I will be sure to tell you all about it, here on the blog and through Instagram and Facebook.

Comments and questions welcome below…

Thanks for dropping by today, all. Hope you have a great week. New recipe coming your way on Wednesday, hope to see you then!

    yay! I am so excited for you (and all of us)!!! Can’t wait to get my hands on the 30 minute recipes – although I have many of them, it will be nice to have them all in one nice, neat book. 🙂 Congratulations.
    BTW – I made homemade ice cream using your recipe for the first time last night – it was so easy, and so good (It wasn’t ready last night, so I had to sneak a spoonful this morning as I was heading out to work…hehe). I was short on things to put in it, so I just winged it. Little Hershey’s syrup, just a hint of vanilla flaving, a couple squeezes of butterscotch, and about 1/2 cup of chocolate chips. Have to say, it was pretty yummy!

    Can’t wait but can you tell me…. does every recipe have a picture to go with it? Those are my favorite kinds of cookbooks! I like to know what it looks like before I attempt to make it!

      I agree with Erin. Love it when I can see what it is supposed to look like!

    Jamie: The cookbook is Great! I will be looking for the next one(s). Two suggestions–the name of each Recipe needs to be bolder and more contrast on the page and the background behind each recipe is distracting and very busy. Makes many of the recipes very hard to read.

      Hi Susan,
      Thanks for your suggestions. Hope you enjoy the book. 🙂
