November in Photos
Interrupting your regularly scheduled cookie palooza recipe to share my completely absurd, yet exciting, inspiring, and unforgettable month of November. From Baltimore and NYC to St. Louis and Chicago to Pittsburgh and Cleveland and back in Philly. Meeting so many of you. ♥
And all your smiling faces!
Traveling to come meet me, bringing your excitement and questions… truly nothing could be better. This was one of the best months of my life.
Look how amazing you all are.
I’ve said it a billion times, but let me just thank you one more time for making this my life. I wouldn’t be here today without you. (I’m a sap!! Totally getting teary eyed so far writing this post.)
Texas This Weekend!
This weekend I’ll be in Texas on my book tour. Austin on Friday night at Book People (7-9pm) then Houston on Saturday at Williams Sonoma (4060 Westheimer Rd. 12-4pm). Would love to meet you! In February, I’ll be back in Boston and NYC, then in San Fran and San Diego. Full schedule here.
Oh my gosh I’m in the current issue of People magazine. What! It’s their holiday issue and I published four of my favorite holiday recipes and photos in it! Plus, a tiny little picture of my gingerbread cupcakes (a picture I took!) is on the cover. Do you think any celebrities will see it? And email me to bake for their holidays? And they’ll fly me out to Hollywood on a private jet? Fingers crossed.
Anyway! In between all the book tour stops in November, I found time to bake.
These last cookies are a recipe coming tomorrow! Also pictured: gingerbread men at the top, pecan pie, funfetti oreo fudge, brownie batter for a new recipe I’m working on, dark chocolate peppermint truffles, and cranberry orange scones.
In between all the dessert, I roasted a lot of vegetables. Balance.
(All I do is drizzle with olive oil, sprinkles with salt, pepper, minced dried onion, and lemon pepper. 375 for 20-ish minutes.)
And added some cayenne to my seriously smooth hummus one day. Wooo-eee! That’s a kick in the pants.
Popped in to say hi on Thanksgiving.
I took my first soul cycle class! My bud Ryan instructs in Chicago. Go to his classes! I’ve never felt more inspired and pumped up. And WHAT a workout in only 45 minutes.
Aaaaand here is our Christmas tree home to only 3 ornaments so far.
I have 23 more days to finish it.
Food bloggers! Don’t forget to join me in Salt Lake City this May for the Everything Food Blogging Conference. As an official speaker, I will be providing a special baking class for VIP ticket holders on Thursday, May 19th. You can bake with me in this hands-on class! I’ll also be attending the rest of the conference too. There’s limited availability, so register soon if you’re interested. Cannot wait.
See you in Texas this weekend!!
