That's right! The fearless, ever-talented, always ambitious members of the Austin Food Blogger Alliance wrote a cookbook, and I'm a part of it! That's right - my name is in print. You can see for yourself by visiting Austin-area bookstores, including BookPeople, Whole Foods Market, Central Market and Breed & Co, or by purchasing online at Amazon.com, and BarnesandNoble.com.
A huge thank you to Addie Broyles and the rest of the gang who compiled, edited, photographed and labored over this book. All I had to do was supply my recipes and photos (the cocktail photo isn't ours, the pasta one is) and say thank you!
It was so much fun celebrating with the group this week at Freedmen's - a newish bar in West Campus that is anything but a "West Campus" bar (present and former UT students know what I mean). Thank you to Freedmen's for having us and for sharing your delicious beer, wine and BBQ (omg the ribs and potato salad espwith the hungry & thirsty bloggers :) I can't wait to go back.
The recipes I have in the book are two that I've blogged about before - Tagliatelle with Fresh Corn Pesto (tweaked and renamed Bacon Corn Pesto Pasta in the book) and Italian Grapefruit Cocktail (tweaked and renamed Italian Grapefruit Cocktail with a Texas Twist in the book).
I hope you'll support the AFBA and me and order a copy of the book for yourself and a friend :) Thanks to our publisher, The History Press, and sponsor, Cooking
CONGRATS to all the bloggers who are included in the book!

That's right, I turned 28 on Wednesday! Thanks to the lovely ladies at The Pie Society for continuing to satiate my pie addiction :)
