So Kate and I both got big brown boxes in the mail yesterday
Big brown boxes filled with other boxes, filled with stacks of heavy things wrapped in brown paper.
I know, the suspense is killing you right? It’s our boooook!
We each got a shipment of advanced copies.
And we couldn’t be more excited!
So of course we had to share it with you!
We love the little details that have gone into this book- like the fun designs and graphics, even the inside of the covers are awesome:
As per our readers’ request, we went with a hard back book, but with a spiral inside, so it’s easy to flip through. The pages are nice and thick and glossy.
And check out this little extra, which we LOVE. It’s a cute removable bookmark with conversion measurements on it. You can pop it in and out of the spiral and use it to save your page!
And all of the pages are just so…fun!
There are even tutorials throughout the book to help you while you make the recipes
And we were thrilled with the number of full-page photos included
Kate’s brilliant idea of a rollover ingredient index is awesome. Got leftover cilantro? Look it up in the index and we’ll tell you what else you can make with it!
On each page you’ll also find tags so you can quickly find things that can be made ahead, or are vegetarian, or slow cooker, etc. We also give tips and serving suggestions to make putting the meal together a breeze!
And of course we sprinkled in some brand new recipes as well.
Not gonna lie, it’s pretty darn fun to see your name on the spine of a book!
We’re so excited about how it turned out. It’s seriously just fun to look at! So bright and cheery- there’s no way you’re not going to be excited about cooking once you take a look at it 🙂
If you missed the info about how to pre-order the book, click here. It should be in stores by the middle of next month!

Jenn- it will be available at all Deseret Book Stores, Barnes and Noble, and Amazon. Then regionally it will be available in many other stores like Walmart and Costco.
Crystal- we discussed the possibility of an electronic version in one of our meetings so we'll be sure to announce it, if it happens!
Eeee!!!! I'm so excited for you guys and excited to have a copy of your book on my kitchen counter in just a little bit! Both my husband and I LOVE your recipes and have tried many since discovering your blog last spring. Congratulations!
Do you know if your book will be available for the e-readers (kindle and nook) I am getting the hard book but it would be nice to have the portability.
Congratulations! How cool is this? It is obvious you both have done as you always do – put a lot of thought and effort into making your end product the very best it can be! Love the hard cove – spiral binding – move-able book mark – great photography – tips! Yeah~ All the best!
that looks great! Can't wait to buy it:):)
We pre-ordered ours yesterday! I think my husband is just as excited as I am!
Ooooh pretty! 🙂 Love the spiral binding! And the photos..love a cookbook with lots of photos!! I can't wait to get one!I haven't had a chance to preorder since hubby is laid off. I'm hoping I can get one for Valentines day! That would be better than chocolate!
This is a great cookbook! I am so excited for it to come out!
I think this is going to be my most cherished cookbook, can't wait to get one. And to think we knew y'all when… ha ha Congrats!
I am so excited! I've been waiting for MONTHS!
I'm so excited…I'll have to wait until I can save some extra cash (I'm a grad student), but it's been on my Amazon wishlist since before Christmas! Maybe a Valentine will notice….
This makes me giddy!! I can't wait!
WOW! What a great looking book! So many great ideas incorporated to make it a fun recipe book to use. I can't wait to get mine!

what brick & mortar stores will be carrying your book?? Or should I just pre-order it from Amazon?
I can't wait!
J- I have no idea, I hadn't heard that. We'll look into it!
So excited! I pre-ordered the book before Christmas and can't wait to get it!!!
I am SOOOO excited to get my book! Can hardly wait. You are by far my favorite recipe blog EVER! I just entered a KARO Cookie Exchange contest and WON! 🙂 So they are sending me a countertop convection oven! Can't wait to try more of your recipes out in my new oven! 🙂 I received an e-mail that the shipment of my book would be delayed, I pre-ordered, is this true!? Love, Joanna B.
I reserved my copy last week! Can't wait to get it! All of your recipes are so awesome and always turn out great. 🙂 Congrats on all your success!
I love all those details, the spiral binding is brilliant (and woot for the conversion bookmark!) Way to go, I can't wait to get my very own copy 🙂
It looks awesome and I love that the book is spiral bound!!! I can't wait till it hits stores next month so I can pick up a copy!
