Community Support and March Events!

I recently got some love from a beautiful blog Third Story(ies) on Valentine’s Day. It’s a colorful blog about a lovely house and gorgeous food, so glad the book is in the hands of another inspired cook!

And we are proud to be #3 on the blogroll of the super inspiring blog, I Run in the Rain! It chronicles a woman’s journey from an unhealthy weight to a new life of health, it is exciting and heartfelt.

There are a few events in the works for March, and not just your run-of-the-mill signings either!:

Matt and I will be giving a talk at the Schlafly Branch St. Louis Public Library on March 13th at 7pm as part of their month long celebration of Food!! We will be signing books too, but also talking about the book, shopping, and food.

I am also proud to say that we will have a table at the open reception of the ACF Regional Conference in St. Louis. Very excited to share the book with professionals!

Stay warm and I will see you soon, St. Louis!!

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.
