I’m writing a cookbook!
To say that I’m excited to share this with you would be an understatement. I am elated, exhilarated, over-the-moon thrilled to tell you all about it! (And if you’ve been following me on Instagram, you’ve already seen a few sneak peeks!)
This cookbook is dedicated to any and all chocoholics. It contains 50+ (almost all of them new!) healthier recipes, and yes—every single one contains some form of chocolate. Whether you prefer milk, dark or white, there are lots of treats inside for you!
… and more!
As someone who reads more cookbooks than fiction, I usually thumb through a few titles more often than the rest because of their particular qualities, which I made sure to include in my cookbook for you too.
›› Easy recipes. You don’t need any special equipment or training to make the recipes in this cookbook! They’re all straightforward, uncomplicated treats that anyone—experienced and novice bakers alike—can make. And just in case, I include detailed instructions for each recipe too!
›› Photos. One of my biggest pet peeves is a cookbook without photos. I want to see what the cookies and coffee cakes will look like before I start! So every recipe in my cookbook has a full-color photo to go along with it.
›› Metric measurements. With my background in chemistry, I actually prefer working with a kitchen scale instead of measuring cups. (Strange but true!) I find that weighing ingredients with the scale is much more accurate. Plus I know not all of you live in the US! So every recipe comes with both cup and gram measurements.
›› Nutritional Information. I include it for all of the recipes here on the blog, so every recipe in the cookbook comes with the Nutritional Info as well. And just like the treats I post here, all of the ones in the cookbook are skinny, lightened-up versions that still taste just as delicious!
›› Dietary labels. Every recipe in this cookbook is low fat and low calorie, but I include more than just that! For those of you with particular dietary concerns or preferences, the recipes also include any of these applicable labels: gluten-free, dairy-free, vegan, clean eating, paleo, and high protein.
Like I mentioned earlier, you’ve already seen a few sneak peeks if you’re following me on Instagram! Here are a few of the snapshots I’ve shared there. Be sure to keep an eye out for more using the hashtag #ahbcookbook!
When Does It Come Out?
The cookbook will be released this summer! As soon as I know a definitive date, I’ll let you know. In the meantime, stay tuned because I’m going to hold giveaways for signed bookplates and copies!
From the bottom of my heart, thank you all for your support. You are the ones who have made this possible. I couldn’t do it without you!
