The 8×8 Cookbook — My Kickstarter is LIVE!

by on September 30, 2015

Back The 8x8 Cookbook on Kickstarter!

The 8×8 Cookbook Launches Today!

It’s the moment of truth—my Kickstarter campaign to launch The 8×8 Cookbook is officially live! 

As I announced earlier this summer, I started a publishing company this year, Burnt Cheese Press, LLC. The 8×8 Cookbook: Square Meals for Weeknight Family Dinners, Desserts and More–In One Perfect 8×8 Inch Dish is my first release, and it’s nearly ready to go to print. I’m aiming to raise $20,000 to make this project and this company happen — I would love your support! 

  • BACK IT on Kickstarter — Rewards include first edition copies of the book (autographed copies make great holiday gifts!), an adorable “How to Make Mac ‘n Cheese” graphic tee for kids (designed by my 7-year old!), the opportunity to join my Burnt Cheese Press Founder’s Table and even the chance to create your own professionally-produced family cookbook!
  • SHARE IT on Facebook or any social media you like (my hashtag is #8x8cookbook). The website to share is:  Help me spread the word about the campaign to all who love to cook and eat, and let people know why you’re proud to support it!

If possible, please make your pledge TODAY–the first hours of a campaign are super-important toward getting the most visibility on the Kickstarter site. All the details about the project (including a cool video!) are on the project page. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR SUPPORT!

The 8×8 Blogger Potluck

This is also a day of celebration! I am so honored to have eight of my best blogging friends joining me to day for a virtual 8×8 Blogger Potluck. We have each chosen a recipe to share from The 8×8 Cookbook:

I’m sharing my Layered Spinach, Artichoke and Crab Dip, which is my idea of the ultimate hot dip. What goes faster at a potluck than a hot cheesy dip? Spinach dip, artichoke dip, crab dip — I love them all. I could never choose a favorite, and with this dip I don’t have to. I could mix them all together, but by creating layers I can taste each flavor individually (while still getting one epic combined bite).
