…and on the shelves apparently by the screaming phone calls and emails coming in!
It’s not that I wasn’t “allowed” to say anything it’s that I didn’t quite know how and I wanted to wait ’til I had my OWN copy… which I STILL don’t…
But guess what?
I figured out there is only one way to say it… here goes…
OH MY GOSH!OH MY GOSH!OH MY GOSH!OH MY GOSH!OH MY GOSH!OH MY GOSH!
OH MY GOSH!OH MY GOSH!
 AMÉLIE AND I MADE THE COVER OF 
WHERE WOMEN COOK!

Being in Artful Blogger a few months ago was INCREDIBLE.  Then to make the cover in print was… wow!  Remember this past spring, “Parisienne Farmgirl, A City Girl with a Farmer’s Heart Page 66.”
But really, this is just so darling.  To share this with my daughter… to be able to see my photographs…. to see that hilarious photo we took while making dinner after cutting our Christmas tree  (Look at the wine all over the counter top!  HA!  Ok, Half was for a reduction and half was for consumption!…I didn’t know I was expecting yet:))… to be able to write about my Mom, Grandma and Great Gramma… to see recipes of mine published…
UNREAL!

Working with Jo Packham (the editor) has been sheer PLEASURE!  She is just a delight and there is not one ounce of pretense in the way she runs this magazine.  I would work with her, do anything for her publications again in a heartbeat!

I hope to have a big stack of these to offer you if you’d like one by the end of next week.  In the meantime, the summer edition of Where Women Cook “Featuring The Parisienne Farmgirl” is available is available at Barnes and Noble and other bookstores.  It is a lovely magazine, lush photos and great stories.  It is NOT just another cooking/recipe magazine. This publication is about the heart of the home.

Now… I find myself motivated, affirmed and inspired and find myself dreaming about writing my own cookbook… I have so many ideas… (I PROMISE I will finish the Paris book I have been yakking about for the last two years!)

I hope you enjoy it!
I can’t wait to get my own copy!!!
