Sharing some secret news today that has been in the works for months! I hope you’re as excited as I am!

I have some truly EXCITING NEWS to share today!

This has been months – even years – in the making.

When I first published my eBook, The Ultimate Cookie Handbook, hundreds of you asked for a printed copy.

You wanted it in your kitchen to bake alongside of you and guess what? That’s finally coming true!!!

I’ve spent the past few months dreaming up how I can get this in your hands AND make it really special to celebrate YOU. My people. The ones who are just as obsessed with baking as I am.

And we are going to celebrate.

If you’re anything like me you love the feel of holding a cookbook in your hands. Going through the pages looking at all of the mouth watering images. If that’s you…

Keep reading because I’m going to tell you how you can get your hands on a printed copy of my book for FREE! Seriously this is a one time offer and we only have super limited quantities.

Once we run out we run out!
