Cookbook Update!

It’s been a while since I’ve written about my upcoming cookbook so I thought it’d be fun to share an update, as well as a little behind-the-scenes look at what creating a cookbook entails. The last time I wrote about the book back in October, I had just submitted my manuscript. Since then, I’ve been going back and forth with my editor to get the book in tip-top shape. And just recently, I received the preliminary designs for the book. We’re going to tweak the design a bit, but I’m thrilled with how pretty and well-organized it looks so far. Here are a few sample pages:

One thing I’ve learned about the cookbook process – other than the fact that it involves A LOT of dishwashing – is that it is sloooow. I’ve been working on this book since the summer of 2015 and it’s due to be released next spring. If you think that seems like a long time, believe me, I’m right there with you!

Writing a cookbook is much different than publishing recipes online. For my website, I develop, test, and photograph a new recipe every week. Once it’s finished, I share it with you immediately. If I post a recipe in the morning, you can prepare it in your kitchen that very same evening.

For my cookbook, I spent four months developing a book proposal before creating a single recipe. A book proposal is basically a business plan — with sample recipes, photos, and a marketing plan — that outlines the vision for the book and persuades a publisher that the project is a worthwhile investment.

Once my book proposal was finished, my literary agent sent it to a targeted list of editors she thought would be a good fit for the project. I spent the next few weeks in a nerve-wracked state, waiting and hoping that one of them would be interested. To my enormous relief, three editors showed interest in the proposal.

Then things got interesting…When multiple editors are interested in a proposal, the book goes to auction. That means that each publisher puts an offer on the table – the offer includes the advance, as well as the overall vision for the book in terms of publication date, number of pages, number of photos, etc.

In the end, I chose Chronicle Books to publish my cookbook. I hit it off with their cookbook editor and she shared my vision for a book with lots of photos – that was really important to me. So with an official book deal in hand, I could finally hit the kitchen and start creating. More on that process next time…

I have never regretted subscribing to your site. Here is another person looking forward to purchasing your book. I am looking forward to all the pro tips and all the relevant stuff you will surely have for each recipe. Your recipes are simple and yet sophisticated; that is how I like to eat. I love your site and all the special touches you always put on it (photos are great too!). I have learned a lot from you. Best of all things to you!! You managed to be home with your family and be a successful woman at the same time! Go, girl!

Through experience of following your recipes I KNOW that I can choose whatever I desire off your blog/website and know it will be successful. I have planned full dinner parties (for clients) from your recipes and receive great raves and reviews from the “eaters”! SO, thank you for the time you put in and thank you for sharing your expertise and taste with us. I appreciate it!

  • Thank you so much for all your delicious recipes! I’m thrilled that you’re writing a cookbook , which I will definitely purchase!! I am always so inspired by the photos that accompany each recipe — they make my mouth water, which becomes the trigger that energizes me to get into the kitchen to begin another culinary adventure. The results are unfailingly delicious! I have actually been putting your recipes together on my own — printing them and placing them in a binder. It’s a rather bulky and clumsy affair, but with priceless content! When your cookbook is published it will be #1 on my shopping list! Thank you for sharing your creations with all of us!

  • Question: Why use unsalted butter and add salt?
    Comment: Waiting for that cookbook! Love all the recipes I have tried. Have all the Wusthof knives, so I won’t enter the contest. Have had them 20years and they stand behind their warranty without questions. Love them and your emails!!

  • Does this mean your book will not include the pictures of ingredients and pictures of your step by step process? That is what drew me to your blog as well as all my friends I’ve told about your blog. Will you include recipes on your book that will not be available online?

    - Nancy A on April 20, 2017 Reply
    • Hi Nancy, The book will include over 70 brand new recipes that are not on the blog, along with about 30 tried and true favorites from the site. To answer your question about the photos, each recipe will have at least one photo — and some of the more complicated recipes will have step-by-step photos. The step-by-step format is difficult to recreate in a book because of space limitations, but I promise the recipes are simple and the directions are clear. And there are a lot of features in the book that the blog doesn’t have – cooking lessons, pro tips, stories, menus, professionally-shot photos, etc. These things are better suited to the book format – so the book will complement the blog and vice versa. I hope you like it!

I wish I entertained more but I get super nervous when company comes so I rarely cook for others except family and close friends. I am always rewarded with tons of compliments so I am not sure why I am so uptight. I hope your new cookbook will have make ahead easy simple ideas for entertaining ( a group of ten) and easy dinner ideas for company. Other entertaining recipes are too labor intensive. I want do ahead ideas. I love your week night dinner ideas and find them easy and flavorful and healthy. I just did your Asian bowls and they were a hit. I might make them for when my in laws arrival for a high school graduation. Thanks so much for being so accessible! Good luck with your cookbook. That’s impressive having small children at home!

  • Jenn,

    Your recipes are delicious, easy to follow, and creative. I’m not surprised you had multiple publishers interested. You will surely have a successful release. I can’t wait to buy it!

  • I don’t buy cookbooks anymore as at one point I had over 1,000 but got all my new ideas for recipes off the web. However, of all the sources of new recipes I used over the years, yours definitely has the best batting percentage. I live in England, however, I will find a way to buy your cookbook!

    Good luck!!!
