Down-Home Comfort with Red-Eye Gravy and Deadlines

Grits with Country Ham and Red Eye Gravy on Down-Home Comfort on Food Network

I’ve got a stack of books I’m in love with and can’t wait to share with you – Summerland by Anne Quatrano, Cooking Light’s Global Kitchen by Dave Joachim, Latin American Street Food by Sandra Gutierrez, just to name a few….But, my friends, I’m on deadline for my next book with Ten Speed Press, titled Lighten Up, Y’all.

It’s due March 17 and I have to stay super focused.

So, this is more of a catch-up than a proper post. Testing has been going really great – I am loving the recipes, as are my guinea pigs. How about a Lightened Up Cream Cheese Brownies, Macaroni and Cheese, AND Old-Fashioned Pot Roast?!

I’m especially excited because I requested this next book to be paperback — and less than $25. I want people to cook from my books and want this one to be as accessible as possible. It will have 100 recipes and over 75 extraordinary photographs by my dear friend, the beautiful and talented Angie Mosier.

There’s been a good bit going on — I’m working with IdeaLand and Pixie Wizard on a new website that will be AWESOME. I’m thrilled with their work so if you need someone to work on your corner of the web, make sure to check them out.

I’ve got lots of events and classes lined up for spring; please check out my events page. (Summer will be up soon.)

The big news is that Down-Home Comfort on FoodNetwork.com is a BIG success. I’m heading into a photo shoot for the summer Down-Home Comfort posts as soon as my manuscript is finished.

This week I am sharing a recipe for Stone-ground Grits with Country Ham and Red Eye Gravy.

So, please forgive the sound of crickets from my own blog — and in the meanwhile, please follow Down-Home Comfort  on FoodNetwork.com — and, help a sister out – please like, pin, share, and tweet!

Bon Appétit Y’all!

  2. Your first two books were home runs V. Looking forward to the next one. Your books explain techniques and not just recipes and that is very helpful 🙂

    Love the title Lighten Up Y’All, that’s great. VMT for passing on the news about LVP eBook to food 52, it’s great to have an independent voice in our support. Will you be at IACP, if so do let’s get together, perhaps sit together at the Awards? (Nicole is coming too). I know that Lisa has dropped out, her family situation is sad and, I’m afraid, not uncommon. As always with dear Lisa she seems to be coping well, indeed running the situation. do hope to see you soon, much love. Anne Can you believe it, the rain is bucketing down!
