Announcing The Baking Bites Cookbook!

The Baking Bites Cookbook

Way back in January, I said that one of my goals for this year was to finish a huge project: to write a cookbook. Unlike the resolutions that involve pledging to use that gym membership everyday (or at all), this is one that I can check off the list. I’m thrilled to announce that The Baking Bites Cookbook is coming out this October!

The book has 51 recipes – and to give you some perspective on how many this is, it’s almost 4 months’ worth of posted recipes! Almost all of the recipes are new, never before seen treats. Only four have been featured on the site before and it’s only because they’re so popular (and such favorites of mine!) that I absolutely couldn’t resist putting them in. The cookbook is styled after some of my favorite single-subject cookbooks, with full-page, full-color photos of every recipe. It uses a large font, making it easy to read and follow – no need to squint at the pages or bend down close to the counter to figure out the next step in the recipe as you work.

The emphasis of the book is on recipes that not too fussy and easy enough to make everyday, but are still full of flavor. You know, like most of the recipes that I post on here! These are the kinds of recipes that are staples to me – and hopefully a few will become staples in your kitchen, too.

Copies of the book will ship around October 25th (I’ll update the date as we get closer), but you can preorder the book now. The list price for the book is $19.95, but if you order it directly from this site, it’s only $16.95, including free US shipping. If you buy 2 or more copies, the price is just $15.95 per book. Did I mention that The Baking Bites Cookbook makes a great gift? International shipping is available, although there is a small surcharge for overseas shipments.

Update: If you’re going to be at BlogHer Food this weekend, look for me. I’ll have a copy of the book with me (even though it isn’t shipping for a couple of weeks) that you can take a look at!
