About the Book


That’s right!  I’m writing a cookbook (I just about can’t believe it either!).  This is the spot where I’ll try my best to keep y’all updated on the progress.  You can pre-order the book now!


6/14/2013 – Revealing the cover:

I get to finally show y’all the amazing cover that was created for the book!  Here’s the post.



6/7/2013 – Announcing the name!

The folks at al.com ran another article about the book and a recipe to celebrate National Doughnut Day.  The best part is they helped me to announce the title.  http://www.al.com/living/index.ssf/2013/06/prattville_food_blogger_announ.html  (I won’t make you click the link though) The Southern Bite Cookbook: 150 Irresistible Dishes from 4 Generations of My Family’s Kitchen

4/18/2013 – Manuscript is TURNED IN!

Yesterday was a HUGE day for me – I turned in the manuscript!  I had somewhat of an abbreviated timeline and ended up writing the whole book in about 4 1/2 months.  I am so proud of what’s all in there.  Currently we’ve got more than 165 recipes that are included, many of them unique to the book.  There’s always a chance some will end up “on the cutting room floor” as they say, but regardless, it will be filled with GREAT stuff.  I promise.  My family even threw me a little surprise “you-turned-in-your-manuscript” party last night.  I’m surrounded by such amazing family and friends.  I feel like it every day, but today I am especially grateful!

3/13/2013 – al.com article on the book:

The folks over at al.com did an amazing article about little ol’ me and what’s coming up.  I’m so excited to bring this book to the world.  I never knew I had it in me. | http://www.al.com/living/index.ssf/2013/03/prattville_food_blogger_lands.html
