Find the Best Recipes in My New Cookbook


OMG it is TIME! This week has been in the making for two whole years. TWO YEARS. I can’t believe we’re here.

I made it, you made it…and my book made it too! It’s been a long haul and I can’t even explain in words the feelings that I am having…excitement, relief, anxiety… I am all aboard the emotion roller coaster right now. Just ask my husband.

Or wait, maybe don’t…

Tuesday, April 12th is my OFFICIAL RELEASE DATE! Anyone who was gracious enough to pre-order the book you should have it in your hands tomorrow morning!! And you you can go into your local Barnes & Noble and it will be there too along with loads of other bookstores!

I can’t imagine how surreal it will be to see my book on bookstore shelves. You know I will be stalking all the Barnes & Nobles in New Jersey just loitering around my book, moving it to the front of the bookshelf asking people if they want a signed copy. So awkward, yet so true.

The Cookies and Cups Cookbook is filled to the brim with sugar and butter, as you would expect.

But the concept of the book (just like this blog) is all about eating dessert first! Desserts make up the first 3/4 of the book with a special extra section with everyday dinner ideas…and I will tell you I am pretty dang excited about these recipes!

Like this Jalapeno Popper Pizza…

I am FLIPPING CRAZY EXCITED for you to be able to hold this book in your hands…to dogear it…to stain it up…to really USE it. AND when you do get your copies I would LOVE to see pictures of you with the book! Post them on my Facebook Wall, Tag me in an Instagram Photo, Tweet me! And hashtag your pictures #TheCookiesandCupsCookbook so I can find you across the internets!

I can’t say enough again about the amount of gratitude I have to you for all the support, kind words, virtual high fives…

YOU gave me the courage to make this happen. YOU made this possible for me.

Eight years of blogging has lead me to this moment and my heart feels so full right now.

Thank you.

ALSO OMGGGG. You guys are gonna die. I have some pretty major news.

I may or may not be on NATIONAL TV this week! OMG!

A little morning show called TODAY has been amazing enough to ask me to be on their show THURSDAY MORNING!!!! I will have more details later this week, but SET YOUR DVR for April 14th during the 10:00 hour! Dying with nervousness!!!

  1. Got your book in the mail yesterday and seriously can’t put it down. I had my sister come over last night and we made your Chocolate Chip Cookies and Browned Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies so we could do a taste test. #bestnightever I can’t wait to try out every recipe. I felt so inspired with every single page. So happy I found your book and blog. #readerforlife

  2. I always liked cooking with my grandma….when she passed on..I then spent my cooking time with my mom….we would bake cookies for christmas and my dad would get a bowl full while they were warm and a glass of milk just to test them out..he would always let us know if they passed….we would have to hide some or they wouldn’t last till christmas.

  3. So excited for you, Shelly! The cookbook is gorgeous and can’t wait to see you on the TODAY show!!! <3 you rock! love you!
