Well, today was the official launch date of my Dinner for Two cookbook (which was the main reason for this post) but sadly, the publication date got pushed back to December 7th. BUT don’t fret…I have so many sweet blogger friends around the web who have already cooked out of the cookbook and have recipes from the book to share with you guys!! This is seriously so exciting. I cannot believe people are actually going to be cooking out of the book so soon. Just a year ago, I was still working on recipes for the book and writing and basically freaking out over how I was going to have the manuscript done in time and now, we’re here. The book should be in all major warehouses soon and if you’ve pre-ordered off Amazon, a little birdie told me that you *might* receive it well before December 7th! If you ordered off QVC when I was on, they start shipping out today so you will most definitely have your copy before December 7th!!

All month long and beyond, this post is the one you’re going to want to come back to time and time again because we’re CELEBRATING!! Celebrating the launch of Dinner for Two and having a virtual date night-in with all my amazing blogging friends!!

If you want to get in on the fun and action (I WANT YOU TO), don’t forget to tag #dinnerfortwocookbook on your social media posts so I can see what you’re cooking out of the book and how many of you have received your copies! Thank you so much for all your support and love through the past year and more! Books are still available for pre-order everywhere books are sold!

OH, before I forget…if you’re LOCAL (meaning Washington, D.C. metro area), I’m having a BOOK SIGNING and CYCLING EVENT on December 5th at Zengo Cycle in Mosaic District. All the details are HERE so make sure you RSVP if you want to come ride with me!! If you don’t want to ride and just want to come get your book signed (or to buy a copy or two), swing by at 2pm! I know the book signing is before the book actually publishes BUT most retailers *should* have copies out already and Amazon should have already shipped yours by then if you pre-ordered ;)
