The Single-Serving Cookie Cookbook Preview Recipe

IT’S THE SINGLE-SERVING COOKIE COOKBOOK RELEASE DAY!!!!!!!

Ebook Preview- Chocolate Cake Cookie-11

At the beginning of March, Andrew suggested that I should write an eCookbook.  It sounded complicated and I just got a grasp on using Lightroom and WordPress…I didn’t know if I could handle another software.  Fast-forward an hour…and I decided I should write an eCookbook.

I knew right away that I wanted the cookbook to be about single-serving cookies.  Single-serving cookies have become such a big part of my life, which sounds slightly ridiculous because how could cookies be a big part of someone’s life? But since being married, I no longer live in a house filled with people who are always down for cookies.  If I make a batch of a dozen cookies, they are eaten by…me.  So over the last 6 months, single-serving cookies and me have become rather involved.

A couple days later the cookie planning process began at Starbucks.  Me and an iced coffee sat for hours dreaming up cookie ideas.  It was one of my favorite days.

Andrew says (or he heard somewhere), that in a good marriage the sorrows are halved and the triumphs are doubled.  I know it’s just an eBook, but creating this book has been one of the most fun things we’ve ever done.  I still can’t believe that we actually finished it and got to the point to market it and sell it.  Our original deadline date to have the eBook ready to go was June 1st.  Obviously we didn’t quite make that.

I’m so thrilled that the eBook is finally done, but in a weird way I’m sad that it’s over.  It kind of became an all-consuming thing.  Not in a bad way.  Just in the “i-can’t-wait-to-get-home-so-I-can-try-out-this-new-cookie-idea” way.  There were so many nights that I would much rather have just worked on the eBook than sleep.  I told myself that if I didn’t sleep I’d get a migraine and be a moody, terrible person, but I didn’t want to stop editing pictures, typing up recipes and formatting the eBook pages. 

Now that the book is done, I can’t wait to write another.  I enjoyed the entire process from dreaming up recipes to designing pages in Indesign.   It’s the first time I’ve worked on something that I 100% loved working on.

I thought I’d share a little preview recipe from The Single-Serving Cookie Cookbook.  Out of the 35 single-serving cookie recipes included, it’s probably my second favorite recipe in the book.  Or maybe it’s tied for first.  I can’t decide.  I just know that I love it.  It tastes like the most delicious cake you’d ever eat…but it’s doughier and cookie-like.  And there are sprinkles.

What I Ate This Week.

So meal planning went to the wayside this week.  Andrew is out of town for work so I didn’t meal plan at all, which definitely showed in my dinner meals with a lack of vegetables.  I usually really enjoy taking the time on the weekends to sit down for an hour and search for recipe inspiration and plan out our weeknight dinners.  But it’s not quite as fun when you’re just making the meal for yourself.  By the time dinner rolled around, I wasn’t even excited to eat because I didn’t have anything planned.   The highlight was definitely that pizza…

Dinners

Monday: Pesto Mac n’ Cheese Pizza.  Annie’s sent me a box of goodies in exchange for a sponsored recipe post.  This pizza was the recipe I came up with.  It was pretty tasty.  I love a super thin crust pizza and this was so thin I had to eat it with a fork and knife.  Perfect.

What I ate-119

Tuesday: My sisters came over for a girls night and we ate the pizza leftovers.  Then we went out for froyo.  Such a switch up from a typically unexciting Tuesday night.

What I ate-123 What I ate-132

Wednesday: Torchy’s Tacos date with a friend! I got my usual…The Democrat & Brushfire. I’m a total spicy food lightweight and The Brushfire taco is too spicy for me, but I still really love it.

What I ate-134

Thursday: I really (REALLY) wanted Chipotle, but the Chipotle by me gets kinda sketchy at night so I settled for nachos.  They were unsatisfying and not what I wanted and I thought about how bad I wanted a Chipotle chicken burrito bowl with every bite lol

What I ate-127

Friday: After a 4+ hour drive to Dallas for Andrew’s cousin’s baby shower,  we met at Andrew’s aunt’s house and had dinner.  The main dish was this chicken casserole that had squash, mushrooms and smoked gouda.  It was great.  The side was a tomato-orange-avocado salad, which was equally delicious.  I had seconds of both.

What I ate-139

Saturday: Dinner at Andrew’s aunt’s house again.  We ate lunch out at Black Walnut Cafe, so a dinner in was good.  We stopped by the grocery store (Market Street) and picked up a bunch of prepared dinner things: chicken, salmon, grilled asparagus, potato cakes, grilled balsamic zucchini/red onions/red bell peppers.  Then Andrew’s aunt made a big salad.  I had a little of everything.

What I ate-149

Sunday: I stayed at my parents house.  They were getting back into town from their own busy weekend, so I just made a grilled cheese on sourdough + tomato soup.

What I ate-152

Lunches

shredded chicken + arugula + roasted sweet potatoes after hot yoga.  I try to drive home after hot yoga and then eat lunch once I get there, but I’m so hungry after that I just started bringing lunch and eating immediately after.

What I ate-136

breakfast tacos with arugula + cheddar.  peach on the side.

What I ate-129

So on Wednesday night I finished the ebook!!! It was after midnight, but I still celebrated with a piece of leftover birthday cake from the freezer and a cold glass of chocolate milk.

Then I packaged up some ebooks to ship out to my favorite bloggers/instagrammers.
