It’s been two weeks now since my cookbook came into the world. I hope you’re enjoying it and finding lots of new favorite recipes! I absolutely love seeing your photos and hearing about what dishes you’ve made — please keep sharing with me, and don’t forget to use the hashtag #OnceUponaChefCookbook so I don’t miss your posts!
These past few weeks have been a bit of a whirlwind, and I’m so excited to fill you in on all the details.
First, the biggest news…Thanks to all of YOU, the book hit two bestseller lists: The Washington Post and Publishers Weekly. Thank you, thank you, thank you for making this happen!
There’s so much more to share. Keep reading for press features, a gourmet cookware giveaway, book tour dates, and more…

Review The Book
If you enjoy the book, one of the BEST things you can do to support me is to review it on Amazon early! Positive reviews make all the difference and really help the book be seen. A few sentences and a rating are all that’s required. THANK YOU to those of you who have already left reviews!
Sooo, I spent a zillion hours proofreading this book, and then it came out, and I found a few mistakes in it. I agonized and beat myself up about it for a while…but then I realized that stuff happens, and it’s not the end of the world. Please note the following corrections: 1) For the Smoky BBQ Chicken Breasts (p. 129), the salt should be 1 tsp, and 2) For the Coconut Cupcakes (p. 272), the cream cheese should be 6 oz and the coconut milk in the frosting should be 1/4 cup.
That’s all the news for now. Thank you for supporting this book and, as always, feel free to email me if you have any questions or feedback on the recipes. I’d love to hear from you!
