My cookbook launched exclusively on Kickstarter today!

June 11th, 2015


I am completely thrilled to tell you all about a very exciting project that I’ve been working on for the past year..launching my cookbook – Good Taste – exclusively on Kickstarter!

Readers of my novels know how much I love painting pictures with words and how much my characters tend to love food…eating it, preparing it, and sharing it.

Food, and the feeding of people I love, is a passion of mine. I’ve shared recipes on social media, in my books, and in my newsletters throughout the years, and have fed most of the people who have dared set foot in my kitchen. Cooking has always been a huge source of joy, comfort, and inspiration for me. I love cookbooks and have spent countless hours reading them, thinking about them, and obviously cooking from their pages. Deep down I always fantasized about writing my own.

And now, I am finally biting the proverbial bullet. This Kickstarter campaign is to help me produce my very own, and first ever, cookbook. It’s nearly done and will be gorgeous––I could not be more proud of what I have created so far.

I’m doing this on Kickstarter because I want to share this process with as many people as possible. It’s a dream come to true to finally take this step, and in the same spirit of wanting to share my kitchen table with family, friends, and neighbors, I want to share this process with all of you. More pragmatically, I also need your help getting it over the finish line.

I’ve poured my heart and soul into a cookbook, called Good Taste. Good Food. A Good Life, and you can help me get it finished if you help support me before July 7th!

Good Taste will be a beautifully designed, and produced, linen-bound hardcover filled with gorgeous never-before-seen photographs and delicious and simple recipes for appetizers, entrees and desserts. The book will only be available on Kickstarter–a way to bring creative projects to life through donations.

I wanted everything about this book to be completely homegrown. My fingerprints are on every inch from the recipes and stories, to the sketch I drew for the logo, to styling and cooking the food, to picking the cover and the fonts. This cookbook is a part of my heart and creating it has been deeply personal. It is filled with easy, uncomplicated food to make family and friends feel nurtured and loved.

Good Taste will pull you into my world and share a real taste of what my life is like. Kickstarter is all-or-nothing so I must raise one hundred percent of my goal together within 33 days or this project won’t happen. I hope you’ll join me in my dream of producing my very own, and first ever cookbook, and I hope you’ll visit the page and pledge your support right now!

I hope you all love it as much as I have loved putting it together! I’m deeply grateful for your support.

Much love,
