A Holiday Cookbook Giveaway!

***The giveaway is now closed. Happy Holidays, all!***

Hello, hello! I hope you’re all enjoying a lovely holiday season. I’m up to my neck in testing seasonal recipes for my next book, all about the wonderful world of Midwestern baking, and time is flying. But I wanted to pop in, say hello, remind you that I post on Instagram much more often than I post here because it’s all I have the capacity for these days, and give you a little reminder about snagging copies of my books for holiday gifts!

As luck would have it, Real Sweet is currently out of stock on Amazon (two weeks before Christmas, hahahaha! HILARIOUS!) and it will likely take another couple days to get copies in and available for you. If you’re willing to order anyway, Amazon is usually super quick about dealing with backorders, and I thank you for your patience. Copies of both Marshmallow Madness! and Pure Vanilla are locked and loaded and ready to come your way. Of course, there are also plenty of other options, like third-party sellers through Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Indie Bound, and my favorite–visiting your beloved, local brick-and-mortar independent bookstore.

If you’re a monogamous Amazon lover, however, and are disappointed at the lack of stock through that channel at the moment (and I feel you, I really, really do), I’d like to make up for it and offer you something all on my own.

As a nice opportunity to add a bit of flair to a gift for yourself or your favorite baker, I’m giving away THREE signed, personalized copies of Real Sweet, and ONE triple volume set of all three of my titles. Fa-la-la-la-la…!!!

(As a child of the 80s, the term “triple volume set” makes me feel like I’m advertising a set of hits from Journey, REO Speedwagon, Styx, Boston, and more, on three cassettes for $19.99 or 2 compact discs for $24.99, plus $3.00 shipping and handling, no CODs. But unfortunately, I’m not Steve Perry. I’m just a cookbook author who hates that one of my books is out of stock on Amazon right before Christmas, realizes this is actually a champagne problem, but I want to spread a little holiday cheer to make up for it anyway.)

If you’re interested in one of these copies of Real Sweet or the **Triple! Volume! Set, set, set!** of all three of my current titles, simply leave a comment below telling me about the gift you’re most looking forward to giving this year. Love you all.

For this giveaway, I’ll ship anywhere in the whole dang world, and sign the books however you like–we’ll talk about that when you win. I’ll even tie things up with a little bow and a note if you want to ship it as a gift directly to someone. Really! The only thing is that entries must be received by Wednesday, December 20th, 2017 at 6:00 p.m. CST. Leave your email address in your comment or on the comment form–winners will be selected at random and contacted directly, and the information will self-destruct after the giveaway closes. Thank you!

“Real Sweet” Has Arrived!


I was going to wait until tomorrow to unleash this awesomeness upon you, but I decided I just couldn’t wait! Tomorrow is March 17th, the official birthday of my third cookbook, Real Sweet. Much like childbirth, I am equally thrilled, amazed, and a little freaked out to have this gorgeous thing out in the world. Thrilled to be able to share tons of great recipes and wacky anecdotes involving natural sugars and lovely photographs with you. Amazed that the whole thing came together so beautifully and that they’re actually going to let me leave the building with my name on this book. A little freaked out because again, like childbirth, the real work begins now, to get this little beauty into as many of your hot little hands as possible.

Hooray!
