Yes, this is a big week for us, so if you’re already tired of hearing about upcoming events and books that are now on shelves (Yay!!) and all you really want is food, go take a peek at our recipe index!
First item of business today: our big, fun, awesome, food-filled party is happening TOMORROW! Thursday, September 13. It will be at the dreamy kitchen mega-store Orson Gygi, in Salt Lake City Utah from 11-1. There will be cupcakes for kiddos to decorate, samples for everyone, dancing monkeys, and general happiness overflowing everywhere. Okay, so no monkeys, but still. It will be epic. Please, please, come if you can!
Next up: It’s official, Savoring the Seasons is on book shelves now! The official launch date was yesterday, so you should be able to easily find our book in a store near you. It’s in a lot of different places, but one thing we are really excited about is that it can be found in Walmart stores nation-wide.
That means even way down south in who-knows-where-the-heck-she-actually-lives, Louisiana, Kate can walk into her local Walmart (or Sam’s Club) and grab a book! (Yes, we buy our own books. People seem to think we have a limitless free supply- if only!) I walked into my Walmart today in Boise to grab produce for my next recipe post and there it was, sitting right in there with The Hunger Games and 50 Shades of Gray in the Bestseller section.
Note that the Walmart “Neighborhood Market” stores, don’t carry books and therefore won’t carry ours. Almost all of the Sam’s clubs sell books, but the few that don’t obviously won’t carry ours. Look for “Savoring the Seasons” in the book section, either on the shelf or in an independent display. And if you can’t locate it, just ASK! They do all carry them, but the shelves don’t hold that many at a time, so they might just be out if you don’t see it. All of the stores should have lots in back, so just ask someone! One of the best things is that you can just slip it into your grocery cart and no one has to know you didn’t just buy eighteen bucks more worth of vegetables. So head on out to your local Walmart this week and grab a book!
In addition to Walmart stores, you can also find our cook book in the following locations:
Deseret Book (in stores and online)
Barnes and Noble (in stores and online)
It also may be available in other bookstores and you can always special order it if you can’t find it!
Lastly- we had a greeeat idea about a little contest where you tag photos of yourself with our book, but it seems like there have been tons of facebook issues with that process! If you want to participate in the fun, read Kate’s post about it, and if you prefer, instead of posting a photo to facebook, email us! You must must must use the subject line: “I Savored the Seasons!” and attach a photo of yourself and the book. Be creative! Our favorite photos might be featured on the site, and win prizes, so get snapping!
It was so nice to meet you both today. You are even lovelier in person! I am the one who had 6 books for you to sign. So, when I got home and was putting them away I realized that I had somehow gotten an extra book in my pile. Somewhere someone named Angela is missing her personalized, autographed, wonderful copy of your book. I called Orson Gygi’s and they had not heard anything about my mix-up. So, I am bringing the book back to Gygi’s tomorrow morning. Good grief. So sorry, Angela!
My pre-ordered copy is supposed to come today! Last night I dreamt that it came, but it was written in Spanish so I couldn’t read it. I’m so excited to look through it and wish I lived close enough to go to the launch party (but I’ll see you in Boise!).
What a great time at Orson Gygi! It was so nice to be able to sample some of what is in your beautiful book. I have already marked the recipes I want to try first, and as always, I KNOW they will be delicious! Thanks!
I got a review copy of the cookbook from the publisher. I’ve written a review that is featured in my weekly food column this week. I’m also giving away a copy of the cookbook, too. It’s a great one!
I just bought mine at Walmart and the summer tab is missing. So sad. I’ll have to try and exchange it tomorrow.
Deseret Book sent me a review copy a few weeks ago and I love it! It’s beautiful and full of some awesome-looking recipes. I’ll be reviewing the book on my book review blog sometime soon!
Saw it at Costco yesterday!!! So exciting!!!
Yahoo! Found it at Costco, can’t wait to start cooking!
Got mine at Walmart today! I just finished going through the book page by page. One of my favorite parts is how you included what foods are in season on each season’s cover page! I am always wondering what is in season when, and now I know! I’ll be at Orson Gygi tomorrow and I can’t wait!!!
Savoring the Seasons in DC! Mine just arrived (I pre-ordered). Great job ladies! Husband is just as excited as I am 🙂
Now when you said monkeys, I started towards the door to grab my coat and be on my way. But then I read on and found the monkeys were a trick! That’s not very nice so I’m just going to stay home!
Of course, I’ll have a chance to pick up the book later but the monkey bit! No way am I going to a monkeyless party. What were you thinking?!?
Sad here in Colorado too. Went to two Wal-Marts with no luck, might try Costco tomorrow, otherwise will have to order one on-line. Anyone had any luck in the Denver area?
Unless your Walmart is a “Neighborhood Market” they will have them for sure, all the Walmart stores do. It could be in its own special display unit, or on either the cookbook or “bestseller” shelf. Or sold out! It’s restocked several times a week,
Bought mine at Walmart in Va Beach today!
I am so excited that mine is arriving tomorrow from Amazon! It is like an early Christmas present.
Congratulations! How exciting! I WILL be there tomorrow and I look forward to meeting you!
Congrats for the successful events!
My Costco dont have it:( neither does my Walmart:( sad day!
I looked for your book at my Costco yesterday and it wasn’t there. I was so bummed! On to Walmart.
I picked up my copy at Sam’s Club yesterday. Homemade dulce de leche is in the oven right now!
Oh and I forgot to say, going to a bridal shower this month and this will be the perfect finishing touch to her gifts. 😉
Congratulations! I’ve been a long time fan and it’s crazy to see how much you’ve girls have grown. So exciting.
Also side note, super cute outfit. I want that cardigan!
I’m so bummed! Amazon isn’t delivering my book until tomorrow and I went to costco to have a look and they didn’t have it, either. Can’t wait to see it and I SO wish I was in Utah to come to the Gygi party. Congratulations!
Congrats!! I actually saw your new book at Walmart (IL) on Sunday!! 🙂 I can’t wait to try these new recipes!
Sooo sad! My wal-mart doesn’t have it. 🙁 Sent my hubby last night, and I called the service desk today, and no luck. :'( I am soooo looking forward to getting it if/when I can find it!
Rock Springs, WY
I hope the launch party goes well for you 🙂
Congratulations! What an awesome accomplishment to have your book in the Bestseller’s section at Walmart! I’ll see you at the event tomorrow 🙂
Congratulations! That’s awesome that Walmart is carrying it (in the bestsellers section no less!). That’s huge! I’ve never met you guys, but I’m excited for you both.
I’m heading to Walmart here in a few mins – hope that means I can find the book!!!! 🙂
Oh, yay!!! How exciting!
Boise! I had no idea. Are you going to do any events here??? I would sure love to come!
I would LOVE to come to the Launch Event in SLC, but I live in North Carolina! My pre-ordered book from Deseret Book came yesterday. I was so excited! The new book looks great. Can’t wait to try the recipes!!!!!
I get paid over $87 per hour working from home with 2 kids at home. I never thought I’d be able to do it but my best friend earns over 10k a month doing this and she convinced me to try. The potential with this is endless. Heres what I’ve been doing, >>> Green32.comREAD MORE
