Would you believe I started this blog back in 2010? It's purpose was to share my love of cooking, as well as promote my very first book, Anna's Kitchen. And, if you been following this blog, you also know my intention was to publish an updated version of Anna's Kitchen, with additional historic recipes, titled Rosie's Riveting Recipes. Then life happened. I got involved with other projects. I made new friends. I did some traveling. And I started up a book publishing business. As John Lennon once said, "Life is what happens when you're busy making other plans," and I've certainly been busy making other plans.
So here I am, four, no make that five, years later. Yikes! Anna's Kitchen had been out of print for sometime now, although you can find a few used copies on Amazon at ridiculously marked-up prices. In the meantime, I still had all the material for Rosie's Recipes sitting on my hard drive. Then one day, just before the holidays, I picked up the phone and called Cynthia, my editor. We had a long discussion about "Rosie," and we decided the time has come to get her done once and for all. So while Cynthia is going over the manuscript I've been creating the cover, which I'm now debuting. The book will be published by Good Oak Press, and it will be available this spring.
