Baking with The Cookies and Cups Cookbook!

Baking from The Cookies & Cups Cookbook! #TheCookiesandCupsCookbook

So it’s been 2 weeks since The Cookies & Cups Cookbook was released. I feel a little bit like the Mother of the Bride…

Let me explain. In the weeks…months…years… leading up to the release of my book there has always been something to do. Whether it be edits, photos, recipe development, marketing strategies… I’ve had a plan, a to-do list, a deadline!

Now that the book available for you to hold in your hands it’s a mixture of crazy feelings!

Of course there is the relief that it’s out there in the world…a real life thing that you can all buy. But on the other side there is that, “What now?” feeling. So much of my life these past 2 years has been devoted to this book, and now instead of the anticipation of it I am filled with…do they LIKE it? Are people going to BUY it? What do I do NOW? It almost makes me want to dig a hole and bury head until next year. So like a mom, planning her daughter’s wedding…you spend so much time planning and helping and doing and then your daughter gets married and starts her life and you are there with a little bit of a lull. Did that even MAKE SENSE? My book got married?

But can I just tell you that probably my most favorite part of all this “other side” stuff is seeing YOU with the book in your hands (omg keep posting these pictures I am obsessed), reading your reviews of the book (CRAZY great, except for that one lady) AND and seeing what you’re MAKING!

Your pictures from Facebook, Instagram, Twitter… have been SO fantastic!

They have made my heart so full, I can’t even explain to you.

You friends, are outstanding.

What I also am loving is that so you are making SO many of the recipes. My goal when I wrote this book was to create a book that you would bookmark the HECK out of.

And seeing your pictures proves to me I did just that…the variety of recipes being made from The Cookies & Cups Cookbook is FANTASTIC! If everyone was only making the Salty Browned Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies, I would know that I failed you.

I want this to be your go-to for recipes you know will be a success. A book where everything looks like a “must make”.

SO KEEP THE PICTURES COMING! Keep emailing me and telling me what you’re making! Keep leaving reviews!

I truly appreciate you.

Haha I love that analogy! That totally makes sense! Now you just have to sit back and enjoy the ride as people enjoy your beautiful book! I’ve put it on my birthday wishlist. Can’t wait!

Yesterday I made lemon cookies to bring to work (they were gone within an hour) and today I’m bringing the Oreo cream cookies in for a baby shower. I figured those would satisfy any pregnant woman’s craving haha

I had pre-ordered your cookbook and as soon as I got it I read through the entire thing! Now, I need to decide which recipe to make first!! haven’t had time to bake since I got it! I’m also going to go back and earmark every recipe I want to make. I’m afraid I will have the entire book dog-eared! Thanks, Shelly!!

I made the Glazed Lemmies over the weekend & they are fantastic. I look forward to making something different this weekend. Great cookbook and resource book.

I run my mouth all day long about this cookbook!! It’s just so fantastic and great for any level cook. I even emailed QVC and told them they HAD to have you in the Cookbook Corner on In The Kitchen With David! 🙂 So hopefully they listen to me…because you know I’ve got such influence 😛

Shelly, I love that analogy! The after-a-big-event-letdown that few talk about 🙂 (2 daughters married, 1 to go!)
One thing I love about your cookbook is that there are no “filler” recipes. Each one is a home-run with beautiful photos and superb instructions. My husband asked who had done your photos–after I looked it up, I told him you did and we were both blown away. You are one talented lady! Thank you so much for the years invested in this treasure trove.

Congratulations Shelly on your book!! I’m not waiting for my birthday or Mother’s Day or Christmas, I’m treating myself to this book ASAP!!! It’s on my list of things to pick up this week! The guys at the tanker base will thank you I’m sure, once summer starts. I bake for them all the time. Now I’ll have new recipes to send goodies out to them. I can’t wait!!

I received my copy and have been drooling over the pictures. I’ve marked a number of recipes to make, but wanted to let you know this is one gorgeous cookbook – major kudos to you! I’ll be buying another copy for my granddaughter who loves to bake very soon.

Ordered your book the first day it was available. Poured over it for days. Just one big problem. What do I make first? Do I start with the first recipe and work my way to the last? Alphabetical order? (retired librarian) Favorite flavors? No, that wouldn’t work – love most sweets.. Ask my husband? No, that wouldn’t work either. Through the book in the air and cook what ever page lands open? How about one recipe out of each chapter? Think I will just start and see where it goes. Thank you for a fabulous new cookbook. I already have… Read more »

Ordered my copy from Amazon….received on Monday. Love the recipes and the variety of recipes. I have already ordered copies to give as birthday presents in the next few months. I send you love and prayers. Keep up the wonderful work

I had pre-ordered the cookbook and have made two desserts already – the brown blondies and the cookies and cream cookies. Both places I took them, people asked for the recipe!! Of course I’ve dropped hints they should just buy the entire cookbook! I can’t wait to bake (and cook) my way through it; everything looks and sounds mouthwatering.

So I’ve made quite a few deserts (how could I not!) but the last page… That tequila salsa goodness of a steak was amazing! I had to make 2 batches of the salsa because we ate it all while the steak was marinating! So delicious!

I just received my copy today as a birthday gift from my husband and kids! I can’t wait to dive in and start baking with my little helpers!
