I have some HUGE news to share! I recently signed a book deal!It feels so strange & exciting to even write that.
It is going to be a paleo (of course!) slow-cooker cookbook. I have been heads down the last couple of months, spending all my weekends and evenings working on recipe ideas, while my husband patiently found something else to do. Thanks for the support, Brooke (just checking to make sure he’s reading this :). We are in the early phases and the project has already been so much fun that I actually ended up coming up with too many recipe ideas. So, this weekend I will be working on cutting them back and deciding which ones to test. I plan to share some of my favorite recipes here as we go. The book will officially be available this fall.
me: at our kitchen table working hard (or hardly working) on recipes…
If you know me personally, you know that I am a crazy planner. I plan everything- sometimes I plan my day, hour by hour – I know, weird. When I started my blog, one of my best friends told me to not plan it or worry about it, and just to spend my free time focusing on what I love and it will all come togehter. I hesistantly took her advice (& she has been such a huge help along the way) and it worked out exactly as she predicted. Thank you, Taryn!
2012 has turned out to be a wild & exciting year. A big thank you to everyone who reads my blog!I really appreciate the support, feedback, comments, etc.! I am looking forward to sharing the project with you in the coming months.

I love your recipes but haven’t tried any of the slow cooker ones because i don’t have a slow cooker. Sounds like I am going to have a really great reason to buy one. CONGRATS!!!

Arsy is the reason I revived my crockpot from the dead. Maybe I _DO_ need a recipe book… I normally just throw in a slab of meat with oil coating and let her rip.
But there’s so much more to life, right?
John Graham says

Joy Lyn James-Heath says
Congratulations Arsy!!!! I can’t wait to try your recipes and get your book!!=) Once again THANK YOU for your blog and help….you are an inspiration and an amazing person=)
I am so proud of you Arsy and can’t wait to get myself a copy of the new book! I’m especially stoked that it’s for a slow cooker- I literally have one recipe that I use over and over and too busy a life to cook traditional meals often. It has been awesome following your blog and I can’t think of a better person to be putting out a book like this!
Thank you SO much everyone for the kind words & the support! I am very excited!
Congratulations! Can’t wait!
That is FANTASTIC! I am so excited for you!!! I would happy to be one of your test bunnies and try out recipes and give my feedback if you like? Just let me know, I LOVE to cook!!!
