Cookbook Sneak Peek

Happy Tuesday!!

It’s been three weeks since the release of my book…I can’t believe it! You guys have been so great sending me pictures WITH your book…and what you’re MAKING from the book! I LOVE IT! I continue to collect your pictures and plan on posting more soon. Soon!

But I really wanted to share some of the recipes from INSIDE my book! If you don’t already know, The Cookies & Cups Cookbook is filled with over 125 recipes, mostly sweet, but some savory too! Dessert is first here on my site AND in my book. Literally!

Here’s a sneak peek…

I have some AMAZING friends around the internet who have helped support my book and me so much the past month and more. I really want you to see their GORGEOUS posts. Everyone selected a recipe from the book that they loved and wanted to share, and I have to say I was blown away with all the amazing pictures and sweet words about The Cookies & Cups Cookbook!

And I really loved seeing the variety of recipes that my friends chose, there were only a few duplicates which I totally feel is a book WIN. I promise you are going to want to make SO many things from the book.

Let’s start with sweets, ok? Specifically some great “Bar” recipes!
