This is the video of me getting to see the finished book for the first time. If you’d like to browse through the final book, Harper Collins/William Morrow now has a page on their site where you can see the dedication, introduction, and several other pages inside the book including some photos, recipes, and recipe listings.

    I’m in tears sharing this moment with you it’s so exciting. I do share in the joy that you must be experiencing right now. It’s as if I know you personally, and I just can’t wait to actually meet you in person on the book tour. I’m so looking forward to receiving my own copy of your cook book. And it’s just gorgeous from what I’ve seen so far. Thank your dear sweet heart for sharing this moment with us all. I was laughing and crying at the same time. And I wouldn’t have been able to wait for my family either. It does my heart good to see that you too have no restraint . ; ) ~wink~ Congratulation’s to you Christy!

    I am so happy for you. It has always been a dream of mine to have a published cookbook. I have not made it yet, but I can understand your excitement and pride. Congratulations on all of your success.
