As most of you know about me, I love to cook. Just as enjoyable as the cooking, is sharing the recipes! So I’ve been working away in my kitchen and at my keyboard the last several months compiling some of the most popular recipes I’ve shared here, along with a handful of brand new ones. I’ve compiled them into a little cookbooklet and I’m excited to tell you that it’s in the final stages of being ready! It’s about to head off to the copy editor and soon, it will be an ebook! Short and sweet, with 10 recipes, it will be value priced and hopefully bring a little cheer–and a bit of a fun mess to your kitchen πŸ™‚Β 


In the meantime, here is one of the recipes that my pal, Amanda Dykes…dear friend and beta reader…just tested!


This is the Yogurt Blackberry Jam Bread. I think it might be my favorite recipe in the book!

She even sent me these lovely pictures! They were so blog-ilicious that I had to write this post and figured now was a good time to give you all a bit of a peek at what’s to come!

Today I am going to type up the final recipe which I’m testing for the millionth time (homemade Mac ‘n Cheese anyone?) then it will be off to the copy editor! I have had theΒ privilegeΒ of meeting a lovely woman who is going to be copy editing the project. Though I hadn’t met her prior to this, she was part of the editing team for both books 2 and 3 of the Cadence of Grace series so she’s not only familiar with my writing (er…typos) but she’s familiar with the characters. Characters you say. In a cookbook?? Oh, I forgot to mention that there is a bonus read at the end. Remember my free read that I had on my facebook page starring Lonnie and Gideon? Well that chapter has gotten a bit of a makeover and is going to be a bonus read in the cookbook. Just to make it more fun! And because I am a romantic at heart πŸ˜‰

Let’s chat:

Do you have an e-reader? Kindle or Nook?

Right now it looks like this book is going to be on Kindle, so for all my Nook friends out there, I’m trying to come up with a solution for you. Also, if you don’t have an e-reader, I’d love to hear from you. Working on some plan B’s for ya’ll πŸ™‚
