Prairie Fruit Book Successfully Launched

What a night!

The launch of the Prairie Fruit Cookbook was fantastic.  Thank you to everyone who came or sent their best wishes my way.  It was everything I could have dreamed of and more!

I felt an odd combination of pride and humility.  I was proud of achieving my goal of writing and launching my first book, and, at the same time,  I was humbled by the love and support of all the people in my life who made it all possible.  Writing a book is not a solo act.  Thank you!

Here’s a collage  highlighting last night’s events.  You’ll see my family, my husband giving a great intro, the signage in the store (it is very cool/odd to see poster sized photos of yourself in a store), the sold-out crowd, signing books, City TV taking footage of my “reading”, and my junior high school home ec teacher (guess!).

  1. Just saw your cookbook!!! Amazing!!! What are your favorites?
    Have a question: my rhubarb is growing but it is very skinny… What can I do???


    1. Is your rhubarb in a sunny spot? Rhubarb likes the sun. Also, a good does of compost around the plant in the fall or early spring will give it a much needed boost.

  2. Congratulations! The book is outstanding and the recipes are terrific! The first of many more to come I’m sure!

    Cheers Brad
