Cookbook #2 Photo Previews

My poor blog has been neglected while I've been busy writing #2, I apologize. 

I'm nearly done -- 160 recipes and counting (my goal is finishing somewhere between 175 and 200). It's hard for me to believe that just 7 week ago my recipe count was 0! 

Anyway, here are some pictures I took yesterday. These are not the pictures that will be appearing in the book, and they're completely unedited, but they'll give you an idea all the same. 

I hope you're as excited as I am about this next book!

I've been getting several messages that Amazon has "cancelled" your orders, so I wanted to explain that here.

First let me say I'm so sorry this happened. I know many of you have been waiting a really long time already and now having the order cancelled is aggravating.

Amazon is getting more books on 4/22 and will be taking/fulfilling orders sometime after that. They've always been scheduled to get more books on that date---since we ordered the second printing in January. 

I talked to my publisher and they've experienced this in the past with other titles. All we can gather is that it's automatic and purely computer-generated. After Amazon is unable to fulfill a book order for an extended period of time, it cancels orders all together.

You can still find some lingering copies in B&N stores, or order it on bn.com---which is saying the title will be available May 10th.

I'm happy to talk directly to anyone that is upset or frustrated and find a way to get you a copy as soon as possible--please email me lindsay[at]happyherbivore[dot]com.

You can also order books directly from my publisher here. The price is competitive and you'll probably get it faster from them than from bn or Amazon.

Again, I'm so very sorry about this! I was elated when the book did so well and sold out, but I've been bummed and panicking ever since. I want you to have the book, and soon you will. :-P

My mom is back for another guest post. As I mentioned last time she stopped by, she and my father are cooking their way through my cookbook

Here are some of the recipes from my cookbook, as prepared by my parents -- and with my mom's commentary:

Root Beer Float Cupcakes (p. 214)"Your Dad made these cupcakes one afternoon while I was doing laundry. They smelled soooo good when they were baking. I thought these were very good..different...but tasty. We want to try it with Dr. Pepper."

Chickpea Noodle Soup "This soup on a cold day was excellent. What a comfort food. We were getting a hail storm and it was perfect--EXCELLENT. We had enough leftovers for the next day so we were looking forward to our lunch. It was good reheated as well. This is the ultimate comfort food. We really love it."

Steak & Pepper Fajitas (p. 103)"Daddy just LOVED these. I love portobello mushrooms so you know I liked them! They were so delicious---you don't need any kind of meat because the onions and the peppers and the mushrooms---very very good. Portobello mushrooms are so good."

Teriyaki Chickpeas(p. 127) "Daddy and I both love anything with an Asian flavor so this was a sure thing. It was really nice, very easy. We really enjoy Asian food and this is one of our favorite Asian-flavored dish. We even got the wrong salsa at the store and it was still very good."

Carrot Cake Cupcakes (p. 213) "As I mentioned last time, your father has been after me to make these cupcakes. Ughhhh TOP OF THE LINE! Our favorite. These were both mine and your father's favorite of all the recipes we made. We took two up to Aunt Connie's and she liked them too. They are so good and I like that it's a dessert with carrots."

My mom also wanted me to point out that they've made the Southwestern Pasta Salad (p. 183) twice more -- saying it's their favorite side dish at lunch since it's so refreshing.

Thanks Mom!
