It is here!

 

Publication Day.

Just those two little words send my heart soaring.

 

To walk into Village Books to see this table, set with the books of all the amazing writers who will be reading this month

Words just fail me.

 

Then to go down to the cookbook area and see this display.

Oh My!  Sorry for the poor lighting, I forgot to bring along a bounce.

So if you are in Bellingham on Thursday December 8th at 7pm and would like to sample some treats from the book, meet me and my family, hear a bit of the backstory to the book and get one signed for a gift (or for yourself), please join me.

I’ll be the one blushing a lot. :)

 

Would you like a preview of my new book?

Join me as I  showcases recipes from my new cookbook, Gluten-free Baking for Dummies:

Roasted Vegetable Pizza (prepared without xanthan or other gums),

Crispy Cheese Popovers, and

Chicken and Vegetable Pot Pie with creamy gravy and flaky pie crust that you can prepare ahead of time. Vegan conversions will also be covered.
