My first COOKBOOK is available today! Plus, a giveaway to celebrate!

My first COOKBOOK is available today! Plus, a giveaway to celebrate!

I am so excited to announce that my cookbook 30 MINUTE DINNER RECIPES is available for purchase today. Woo Hoo! As I mentioned last week, I have partnered with Chatbooks and am planning an entire cookbook series. I’m hoping to have a new book come out every 6 months or so. I’m hoping you will find them to be super useful!


The books will only be available online, and through my Chatbooks Publisher Page.

To order, simply click  HERE, or on the image above. The price is $11.99 with free shipping. I will leave a picture link to the order form in my sidebar and at the bottom of future posts for easy access.

To celebrate this first book, I would love to send TWO of you my very favorite pan. I use this T-fal Specialty Nonstick Dishwasher Safe Oven Safe Jumbo Cooker Saute Pan with Glass Lid, 5-Quart (that was a mouthful, yes?) seriously almost every single day. Most of the recipes found in the new cookbook make use of this pan, so I thought it fitting to give a few of them away to help celebrate the launch of the book.

To enter the giveaway all you need do is help me get the word out about the new book! Simply share the link to my cookbook on any social media platform of your choice. Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest or through an email to any of your friends, relatives, acquaintances, loved ones, etc.  Then come back here and leave me a comment telling me you did so. Thank you in advance for helping me spread the word!

This giveaway will be open from today until Tuesday October 20th. I will announce the two winners on Wednesday Morning. Best of luck to all!
