My Big Announcement!!!

I let my fans on facebook know that I was making a big announcement today on my blog.  I asked if there were any guesses as to what it might be.  I got a few responses that I got a chuckle out of...
"They are letting you design the next crockpot."
"‎1,000 days of slow cooking?"
"A tv show with Guy Fieri???"
"This year will be 366 days of slow cooking. It's a leap year."
"Your own smart phone app!"
"You received 14 more slow cookers"
"Cookbook release?"

Well, I can tell you that I will NOT be doing 1,000 days of slow cooking or even 366 for that matter.  I WILL however continue to update my blog 2-3 times a week with new recipes.

I can also tell you that I am NOT pregnant.

I wish I had a smart phone app.  That would be sweet.  I am not that tech savvy though...and my budget is too limited to hire someone to create one for me.

BUT...there will be a NEW and IMPROVED cookbook that will be released in March!!!  I was lucky enough to be approached this year by a publishing company and we have worked this last year to get this ready.  It is going to be awesome.  It is full color with beautiful pictures.  It is about 265 pages long and contains 365 different slow cooker recipes (some from my first year of cooking and plenty from the 2 years since I finished).  This will be your go-to guide for dinner ideas, party ideas, and more.  Here is the cover...isn't it beautiful?  Sometimes I just look at it and get all giddy.

I truly am so blessed and honored to have this happening to me.  It has occupied my thoughts day and night and even my dreams at times.  There will be a chance for you to pre-order your own copy and as soon as I get those details I will share them with you.

Because this new book is coming out I have stopped selling my first book.  Because it was self-published I had to also self-fund it and self-distribute it and self-market it :)  I am happy to be able to focus on creating new, wonderful recipes instead of focusing on these tasks.

Thanks so much for reading this blog.  Thanks for sharing it with your friends.  I so appreciate all the support and love I feel from you.
