Today is an Important Day

It’s a milestone day for me. Today is the day that I deliver the manuscript to my publisher for my first book. I know I’ve been quiet about it here – perhaps I’ve been afraid that I would jinx it – but my dream of publishing a book for families with multiple food allergies is coming true.

The book is all about baking without wheat, milk, eggs, soy, nuts, and gluten. It’s part cookbook and part how-to, and will be published in Spring 2012. Yes, I'm very excited! Yes, it's scary, and yes, it's a lot of work.

I must say that I have a new-found appreciation for anyone who has ever written or edited a book – especially cookbooks. It’s amazing how many different ways there are to write, “Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees.” There are a lot of details in cookbooks, and they must be right.

I am so excited to be able to work on this project and can’t wait to be able to share it with all of you!
