I've been working on a new cookbook, and I'm happy to announce that it will be available in bookstores everywhere this September 24.
This was a tough book to write --- it has been a 3 year process to recipe develop and test 365 brand new dinner recipes. A few that appear in the book have been showcased on the site, but my contract stipulates that only 10% of the book content can go online.
And there are PICTURES!!
don't worry. I didn't take them.
Tara Donne, a fabulous food photographer, was in charge, and I just couldn't be any more pleased. The food looks FANTASTIC, but it was all made in a slow cooker (no funny food prep, my directions were followed) and to boot, all the food was photographed using gluten free ingredients, since Tara (and my editor) both just-so-happen to be gluten free.
I think you're really going to like this one. Some of the recipes from the book that you'll recognize are:
Not Your Mother's Meatballs
Matzo Ball Soup
Korean Soft Tacos
But there are tons of others that I'm sure will be a new regular in your meal plan rotation, such as:
Honey-Lime Chicken Soft Tacos
Snowy Brisket with Baked Sweet Potatoes
Brown Sugar Pork Tenderloin with Mustard
Roasted Grape and Goat Cheese Sweet Potato Bake
I stuck to all main dishes for this book because while it's certainly a ton of fun to make cheesecake and greek yogurt, most people still really need good, solid, tried-and-true dinner recipes.
I've broken the recipes into chapters: Soups & Stews, Beans, Poultry, Beef & Lamb, Pork, Sandwiches, Meatless, and Fish & Seafood. There is also a full index.
Thank you for your support, and for your kindness these past five years. I never, ever, could have imagined that I'd be able to play with my crockpot everyday and consider it work.
I am working with the publicity team at Houghton Mifflin Harcourt to help "get the word out" about this new book. I'm happy to learn that Sam's club and Costco will be stocking copies, but I'm not sure which regions.
If you'd like to help with publicity, I'd love to hear from you --- I am certainly open to any and all ideas! I wish I had the foresight to take a marketing class instead of so much English Lit in school!!
If you are out and about in a place that sells books, it would very much be helpful if you could mention my name and the book title to a manager.
And of course, this book will make an excellent gift to anyone on your Holiday list! If you'd like a signed bookplate, I will send one your way! Just email me.
Thank you again, and happy slow cooking!!
