The New OBB Cook Book, Available Now!

We’re SO excited to introduce you all to our
National Bestseller!
“Savoring the Seasons with Our Best Bites”

Isn’t she a beauty??

This book has even more never-before-seen recipes than our last book, and they will stay exclusive to the book.  Here’s a teeeeny tiny sampling.  Seriously, there are SO many great recipes in this book.

Kate and I spent the last year up to our necks in dirty dishes as we created, tested, and fine-tuned some amazing recipes.  And we have a fantastic artistic team who worked on the layout and design of this book.  We love all of the little features and attention to detail that really make it a one-of-a-kind book.  Take the often-overlooked inside cover, for example.  Cuteness.

And like our last book, this one has a removable book mark that snaps right into any page in the book, and it’s got a conversion chart on it!

The book is spiral-bound, but with a hard back cover and the pages are glossy and splash resistant.  There is a photo (and sometimes multiple photos) for every single recipe.

Kate and I love cooking all year long, and one of our favorite things is the change of the seasons and the food that reflects that.  We love cooking with things that are fresh and in-season, and that’s the whole purpose of this book.  It’s separated by seasons:

So you’ll find creamy roasted butternut squash pasta and maple-glazed cookies in autumn, peppermint ice cream and garlic-rosemary prime rib in the winter, creamy asparagus soup and sweet roasted carrots in the spring, and creamy ice pops and grilled meats in the summer.  Sprinkled throughout the book are mini-tutorials on crafts, holiday activities, and foodie gifts, and there’s even a whole section of cupcakes and frostings!

You can find our book at many book stores, but here are some of the major ones:

Walmart and (Every Walmart in the US should have our book in stock, with the exception of the “neighborhood market” stores that don’t carry books at all.)

Sam’s Clubs and Costco stores:  Selected Stores, over 150 across the US

Questions & Reviews

  1. One of my favorite holiday traditions is brunch with all our friends Thanksgiving morning. It’s such a fun time and everyone brings yummy treats and gets to relax before the big meal later in the day, usually with family.

  2. One of my favorite traditions is I give the kids new Jammie’s all washed and a book on Christmas eve when they were little it helped make bed time easier now they are 18 and 19 they still look forward to the new Jammie’s. :). Looking forward to seeing your new cook book.

  3. Ah! I can’t wait to get your new cook book! Your first one is practically my cooking bible in the kitchen! 🙂

  4. Favorite holiday is Christmas and one of my favorite traditions is teaching my girls to bake all the Christmas goodies 🙂

  5. I just found out that I will be doing alot more cooking for peeps in the months ahead, this cookbook would be soooo useful!!

  6. Love the last cookbook, can’t wait for the new one!
    Christmas Eve my husband and I sit in the dark just with the Christmas lights on and high five each other for staying alive through another Christmas!

  7. My favorite holiday is Christmas and my favorite tradition is going to a Christmas Eve service and coming home afterwards to my Mom’s amazing spread of appetizers!

  8. My favorite holiday tradition- everyone gets to unwrap one gift after Christmas eve services and it is always a new pair of holiday jammies so we all look festive as we unwrap gifts Christmas morning!

  9. I am torn…I have two favorites (is that possible?)
    1 – Sausage balls for Christmas morning
    2 – I have a new 4th of July tradition that went over so well this year! I got it from you, the 4th of July Layered Jello!!!

  10. Granny Cooper’s coconut cream pie is a must! It is my husband’s grandmother’s recipe and she handed it down to me.

  11. Too many to pick from! But our favorite for any major holiday is that my husband makes his grandma’s roll recipe and all of our kids help. They each have their own job and they love it! Well, I guess the fresh-from-the-oven rolls are really their favorite part!

  12. Wow! It looks as beautiful as your first one…which I have and love! Congratulations! Thanks for all your hard work. You make me look GOOD! 🙂

  13. Along side of all the wonderful foods that go with Christmas, my favorite holiday tradition for our family is driving to the mountains to cut our Christmas tree from the forest. We wouldn’t have any other tree than the lopsided, crooked trees we bring home each year. Time spent together tromping through the woods…. priceless!

  14. One of my favorite holiday traditions is searching for our ‘Annual Christmas Mug’…my daughter and I have been buying matching Christmas mugs every year since she was young…She’s 26 now and every year when we go Christmas shopping together, the trip always ends with our search for the perfect Christmas mug to add to our collection.

  15. The new cookbook looks wonderful. I believe I was able to get the last one digitally…hope this one will be available that way. Love to have them on my iPad, I can take it with me in the car and plan ahead for meals.

  16. You two are so fun – and your recipes are the best! So many holiday traditions and so little time! My favorite is getting a chocolate letter of our first initial – one of our great Dutch traditions!

  17. I have a lot of favorite traditions, especially for Christmas. Not only do I look forward to our annual Christmas cookie exchange we hold at work (where I’m ALWAYS looking for the next best recipe for this year’s cookie), I’m also VERY excited to go cut down our tree and get the house decorated. My husband and I started this tradition right after we got married, and have continued since we had our son. The whole adventure is absolutely magical! Last year it actually snowed when we were there! (We live in SC, so we don’t often get snow that early in the season.)

  18. The volunteer fire department used to send “Santa and an elf” to my mom’s house. The kids were mesmerized. It is something I will never forget and wish they still did so we could continue with our grandchildren.

  19. We like to have a familiy night on Christmas eve. We have homemade soups and rolls and some good desserts and then a program with all the kids, grandkids, that can come. Maybe I’ll find some new desserts to add to our Christmas eve get-together. Thanks.

  20. Christmas to celebrate Christ! A Tradition I is place a small unwrapped gift for every family member on the tree to start the fun of gift giving.

  21. I love your first cookbook and bought one for each of our granddaughters. Can’t wait to see the next one.

  22. My favorite holiday tradition was when my papa was still alive and every Christmas we would celebrate Christmas on Christmas Eve at Nanna & Papa’s house with take out chinese food from the same place every year and open presents. It hasn’t been the same since he has been gone but I remember every year like it was yesterday!

  23. I think this new cookbook looks awesome!! My favorite holiday tradition is when we go camping over Thanksgiving with a large group of close friends and everyone brings a part of our Thanksgiving feast. We line up the tables and bring out the food and share this wonderful day with wonderful friends for which we are very thankful! =D
