People will be reading my words, cooking from my recipes and drooling over my photos printed on paper. It will be published by Running Press and edited by Kristen Green Wiewora who also recently edited, Homemade with Love: Simple Scratch Cooking from In Jennie’s Kitchen.

Gabe and I laughed away the day and wondered how one goes about getting pee off of an ipad.
We talked about getting new carpet or rearranging the room to cover up our 2 year old’s Sharpie rampage. “Let’s go with beer.” I said, already anticipating the skunky farmhouse ale and knowing that I’d just drink the bottle of champagne with a friend the next night.
These posts are often my favorite to write and always the best to read your comments and emails in response to.
How you all have reacted to these posts is a huge reason why I’m writing this book.
“Or we could just put a frame over it and call it art.” I said as Gabe went into the kitchen and pulled out two bottles from the fridge. Regardless of what had happened earlier in the day, tonight we were celebrating.
