Announcing the Cookie Cravings Cookbook Plus a Giveaway

Hey! Guess what? We’ve birthed ourselves a cookie cookbook.

I’m thrilled to announce that Cookie Cravings cookbook is now available!

And to celebrate its arrival we’re giving away a KitchenAid 7-quart Stand Mixer just like the one Maria used to bake all these cookie wonders. Believe me, it got a workout. Oh, and a little known fact about Maria: If you can believe it, Maria doesn’t like to eat cookie dough. She’d rather eat the cookies baked! Which turned out just fine, more dough for me and Josh to snack on.

Okay, now I’m getting ahead of myself. First, the cookbook…

Foodie Crush Cookie Cravings Triple Chocolate Oreo Chunk Cookies
Maria’s Triple Chocolate Oreo Chunk Cookies from the Cookie Cravings Cookbook

I’ve partnered with Maria and Josh of Two Peas and Their Pod to co-publish their first e-Cookbook, Cookie Cravings. It’s been such a blast plotting, planning and BAKING. We’re thrilled to share it and a bunch of other downloadable goodies with you.

Cookie Cravings is a 78-page downloadable cookbook that includes all new photography, new stories and a month of cookie recipes: 15 favorite recipes from the Two Peas and Their Pod blog plus 15 new cookie recipes created specifically for Cookie Cravings. I can verify they are all delicious after nibbling my way through the cookie cornucopia as I photographed and styled them for the book. My skinny jeans are officially on vacation.

And just like they say during late night T.V., “But wait! That’s not all!”
