I’ve been plugging away at the cookbook and just wanted to post a quick update for those who are interested. A few things:
1. I’ve started a Facebook group for anyone who’d like to hear how the publication is progressing, learn when the book is finally out (projected publication date is early 2009), or contribute ideas, questions, comments, or photos of any of the items you’ve already tried (most of the baked goods on this blog will also be in the cookbook–so if you’ve ever baked anything from DDD and have feedback or photos, PLEASE feel free to post them on the group page, or just let me know!) To join the group, you can go here. Would love to see you there!
2. Although many of the recipes, as I’ve mentioned before, have already been tested because they were sold through my baking company, I still have to adapt some of them for the home cook and am creating new ones as well for the book. And so. . . I’m now actively soliciting recipe testers. This would involve a bit of work and, most importantly, feedback to me about the recipes. If you’ve got time to bake up a storm over the next month or so and are interested, please email me at dietdessertdogsATgmailDOTcom or sweetfreedomcookbookATgmailDOTcom. Thanks!
3. To help you get in the dessert kind of mood, here are some recently baked items that will be in the book (they’ll be posted on the Sweet Freedom blog and Facebook page as well):
Coconut Cream Pie:
Chocolate Chip Cookies:
Glazed Chocolate Orange Torte:
Old Fashioned Raisin-Spice Cake:
“But Mum. . .does this mean WE can’t be your taste-testers anymore? Because you know how much we love your baked goods. . . ”
