The Clever Cookbook |

Hi! It’s me.

Today’s the day friends!

I’m thrilled to announce the official arrival of The Clever Cookbook. Woo hoo!

When I quit my corporate job for culinary school, I had no idea this would be my journey. At times, I wasn’t sure where I was going or what to expect.

Right now, I couldn’t be happier.

My heart is full.

HUGE thank you to my family, friends, recipe testers, fellow bloggers, my editor & publisher- I couldn’t have done this without you.

I think back to all of those late nights organizing my thoughts, writing recipes, and editing photos…

And now, you will finally be able to hold this book in your hands!

The book is now available in stores, but you can also purchase online:

Oh, and PS! Epicurious named The Clever Cookbook one of Spring’s Best Cookbooks! YEAH!

So, let’s celebrate! Ready for this giveaway?!…

And the temperature is bizarrely off, but it’s nothing an oven thermometer can’t fix. Oh, and it’s a double oven.
