This Week’s Good News.

This week, other than being my favorite holiday, has brought some great news.

Our first few stores are already beginning to sell out!! The book has only been on the shelves for 2-3 weeks and we are getting reorders! We are so happy that people are picking it up and giving it a chance.

Matt and I have booked a speaking engagement at the St Louis Public Library during their Culinary Month in March 2014! We can’t be more excited to share the book with people at this event.

We have gained yet another wonderful spot for the book to be sold – the Missouri Botanical Garden’s Garden Gate Shop! We are so jazzed to be included in this lovely shop.

Thank you again to all our unfailing supporters! I hope you all are finding the book useful and fun.

Congratulations! You have put so much work into this project. I received mine yesterday and was very impressed by the many ways in which this book is interesting and informative. I love the cover and its vibrancy and the interior organization is great. Feel proud…you’ve done well.
