Exciting News: I Sold a Cookbook!

I have some very exciting news I want to share with you. I’ve just signed a contract to write my first cookbook! I’ve already written a food history book (Cookie: A Cultural History, which contained some recipes), but that is tied up in the logjam that is a university press and isn’t out yet. I’m hoping that will see the light of day next year. In the meantime though, I’ve signed with Adams Media to write No-Pot Cooking or The Parchment Paper Cookbook (title is still not definite!). If you haven’t visited my other blog, NoPotCooking, you can click over there and see what it’s all about. The concept is no mess, easy cooking, all done in parchment paper. Perfect for small kitchens, busy people, and those who really hate washing dishes! I’m SO excited to be working on this. It will be in stores later this year (I’ll be sure to let you know when once I have a firm date).

This project is the reason I have been so slow to post lately. It was a rush to get it done so I had to cut back on everything I’ve been doing to get it done. I’m very excited about it and will be sharing more details as I have them.

    I am excited for you. Congratulations. When is your deadline?

    I am not going to be available for the month of April so I won’t be participating. I will be back in May.

    The deadline has already passed – Apr 1. It was a rush to get it done, but fun to work on it so intensively.
