The Book

If you are one of my 16 very loyal readers, I feel that I owe you an explanation about my absence over the past few months. To cut to the chase: I wrote a book.



Lucie's Kitchen -- or The Book, as it's referred to in my house with varying degrees of affection  and angst --  is  chock full of recipes from Lucie's collection intertwined with her story. I tried to just make this a little thing I did for my family, however, certain friends of mind have pushed encouraged me to get the word out.

Apparently when you write a book you have to tell people about it  and let them read it, which is more terrifying to me than writing a 164 page book. You can watch my agony right here-- I will post pre-ordering info right here in the very near future.

In the meantime, thank you for reading my words. It is so surprising and humbling to hear that you enjoy the words that make their way from my head to the screen. I hope you'll enjoy this book even more, all 100+ recipes and the story of a woman who I've never met, but learned so much from.

Oh, and please share with the world and increase my terror if you are so inclined.

With Gratitude,

    I am the mother in law of a author and blogger (Jon Acuff) so I know the angst that goes into any published piece. Congrats on making the effort for all of us! I have printed Lucie's dough recipe chart from your blog and it now is taped inside my kitchen cabinet. A good reminder to us all that we can learn much from those we may never meet this side of heaven.

      That is so cool that you have her dough chart! I'll tell you a secret: Jon and Jenny are mentioned in the acknowledgments. Even though we've never met, their work and the D&B group are a big reason why this book was finished.
