It’s here! It’s here!
Yep, One Pan & Done is out in the world today, and I feel like shouting it from the mountaintops, and maybe also hiding under a rock (or, perhaps more comfortably, just the bed covers) until the nerves pass. But maybe I’ll just take a deep breath and eat some truffle mushroom lasagna?
Yes, let’s do that.
Writing this cookbook was a whirlwind affair — I found out I was pregnant a few weeks after I began work on it, and the ensuing nausea and food aversions (to anything besides cereal and cheese, basically) made recipe testing… interesting. But, more than ever, I craved simplicity and ease in the kitchen, so once I started enjoying food again the (one pot! one pan! streamlined!) recipes made their way to the page faster than I thought they might.
I have to pinch myself these days when I stop to think about the fact that, not only do I have an actual baby (who is about to turn one next month!?! what is happening?!?), I have another book baby out in the wild. Maybe even in your hands! Maybe you’re already cooking from it!? Sigh… they grow up so fast, don’t they?
I feel so lucky to get to do this kind of work, and though it often (on publication day perhaps more so than on other days) feels scary and surreal, I don’t take a second of it for granted. Thanks to you for coming along for the ride.
Can we eat lasagna now?
