Weekend links: The Simple Bites Kitchen edition

Things have been quiet here on the blog as I’ve been keeping busy with cookbook promotion. This stage feels a lot like the fourth trimester after delivering a baby, complete with similar exhaustion and elation.

I’ll share more about my book tour later in the month ( I am currently in beautiful British Columbia if you are following along on Instagram) but today I wanted to spotlight a few people in my community of food creatives. They have been cooking from The Simple Bites Kitchen and sharing recipes and stories with their own readers.

I’ll also link to a few features in old school media; this dear book baby of mine has been getting a fantastic response and I’m just so thrilled that it has been well received.

Apple Almond Galette to celebrate my new cookbook (giveaway)

The kettle is on and the table is set. It’s finally time to share with you a project I’ve been working on for a little over two years.

I’ve filled notebooks with scribbles and lists, developed hundreds of recipes, and picked the best ones to test and include. I’ve proofed many drafts of the manuscript and styled food for hundreds of photographs.

I’ve been anticipating this day for a very long time: the moment when The Simple Bites Kitchen launches into the world and you all are invited to join me in my kitchen.

Friends, today is the day! Keep reading to learn more about my new cookbook and upcoming book tour. I’m also sharing a seasonal recipe from the book – Apple Almond Galette – and giving away five copies to you[Read more…]

Presenting…The Simple Bites Kitchen cookbook

I‘ve been counting down the days to this very post: the one where I reveal the cover of my next cookbook, The Simple Bites Kitchen and share a few details about this personal project.

As of now, the edits are a wrap, the cover is confirmed and this labour of love is getting ready to go to press. We also have a set release date: October 3, 2017. That’s just six months away!

So how did this book come to be? And what is it all about anyway? Keep reading for the story, a few behind-the-scenes photos…and the cookbook’s cover reveal.
