Karen and I would first like to wish all of you a very Happy Thanksgiving filled with family, friends, much love, and delicious food!

We have a couple of fantastic book promotion opportunities coming up this week after Thanksgiving and we are SUPER excited about them!

We are definitely most excited about our participation in the “Cookbook Social at the Palace Ballroom” on Tuesday, December 2nd, and sponsored by Tom Douglas Events. We are thrilled to have the opportunity to be at this event and cannot thank the lovely people there enough. There will be several authors there with tasty bites to share as well, so you should definitely stop by if you can. Here is the event link:

And then on Friday, December 5th in the Arnold Building of main campus, we will be at the Fred Hutchinson Center Annual Winter Craft Fair from 9-3 (Karen will be there from 9-1), where we will be signing copies of Every Bite. If you or someone you knows works at the Hutch, be sure and stop by. It’s a great event where a portion of the proceeds go to the SCCA (Seattle Cancer Care Alliance) Patient Family Services Fund. Open to all , so if you work nearby or are a Hutch employee, come join us for some holiday cheer!

Hope you can make it to one of the events. We would love to see you and talk food!

Have a wonderful, safe holiday-
C & K

 

Cookbook Update and Some Other Stuff…

Hi all-

Early this week, we got an email from Robert at Vanguard with the 1st copy of the manuscript to proof! To say we were thrilled is an understatement! I (Carol) was particularly taken a back seeing the title/author page and the copyright page. It’s finally becoming really real and is starting to look like a cookbook!

We also got a first idea for the cover for the book. It’s not really what Karen and I had in mind, but we’ll work with them and will get if figured out. We’ll have the first draft to them by next weekend and will move on from there. Not until we’re done with the proofing and it moves onto the marketing department do we get a release date. Which is what we’re particularly excited for! Hopefully just in time for the holidays!

I also came across a couple of interesting food tidbits you might enjoy:

The first is a suggestion on what to do with leftover Sriracha from lifehacker.com. They’re not wasting a thing and we love it!

Last Bit of Sriracha!

The second is just a creative and healthy way to give and eat salads (from the Daily Dish). I just find the photo so pretty:

Enjoy eating every bite!
