Remember that ecookbook I’ve been harassing you all about? YEAH…it’s DONE and ready for browsing!


This cookbook has been a few months in the making and you’ve probably seen my instagram photosfacebook updates and tweets about it. It’s been quite the long process, but I was happy to do it because {1} I love what I do {2} I listen to my readers and {3} it’s nice to have all these everyday recipes in one place–not just for you but for me too!

IMG_0224Why did I write Everyday Ingredients Extraordinary Meals?

On my blog, I usually post all the random crazy recipes that pop into my head. Do I ever post the simple, everyday recipes I use on a weekly basis? Sometimes, but not usually. So, why did I decide to put all these recipes into a cookbook? Because I’ve been getting more and more emails from you wonderful people asking for them! I also loved the idea of self publishing my own recipes because I could control everything about it from start to finish, making the book completely and authentically MINE. {But of course with the help of Heidi!}

My whole goal with this ecookbook was to give you a taste of what I cook for my family all the time–basically a bunch of new recipes you can’t find on my blog. You’ll recognize a few {like my Cinnabons} but besides that, everything is pretty much brand new just for you!
