It’s been an exciting two weeks. The book officially released on February 12th, and we celebrated with a TV appearance and book signing at Parnassus Books here in Nashville.
Want to see me make some charmingly green (mint chocolate chip) pancakes? Watch the clip. And if you’re in Memphis, Taylor and I will both be appearing on WREG-TV’s Live at 9 this Thursday morning, demoing the Italian-style Stuffed French Toast from the book.
Thanks to everyone who came out to the booksigning, hung around to chat about all things breakfast. We’re totally new at this and you made our job easy by being so welcoming and friendly.
Not wasting any time, the next day we boarded a plane for San Francisco, where we spent our Valentine’s day at the most romantic place on earth.
Alcatraz state penitentiary.
While it was mainly a trip to visit family, we managed to sneak in a few book events while we were there.
Omnivore Books is the cutest little bookstore, selling nothing but cookbooks. Can I move in? Seriously, I knew I didn’t have much room in my suitcase or I would have come home with an armload.
The next day we drove up to Napa where we had an event at Copperfield’s Books. We got to do a demo (our first ever!) in this gorgeous kitchen. Once again, I wanted to move in.
And a trip to Napa isn’t complete without a stop at Bouchon. Line and all.
Once our events were over with (phew) we had a few days left to explore the city. Our (ok, my) checklist of “must-see” places was very sugar-centric. Tartine, Bi-Rite Creamery, Miette, Bouchon, The Candy Store… we hit them all.
Despite even more lines (apparently my “must-sees” were everyone else’s too), we enjoyed every minute of it. We can’t wait to go back.
If only for another morning bun.
Thanks to everyone who came out to our events, including family, friends, family friends, and loyal readers. We loved getting to meet you in person! We especially loved finally getting to meet Liana (long time-client and good friend), and Lisa (my blogger adoptee, look at what an amazing blogger she’s grown into!) They are the sweetest, really and truly. Thanks for the sweets and jams! :)
We’ve got one more book signing planned in Memphis this Thursday at the Booksellers at Laurelwood. If you’re in the area we’d love to meet you!
My name is Jane and I’m with Dwellable.
I was looking for blogs about Napa to share on our site and I came across your post…If you’re open to it, shoot me an email at jane(at)dwellable(dot)com.
Hope to hear from you soon!
What a whirlwind! How I wish I could have been there with Lisa when she met you both – I can’t tell you how bummed I was. I’m glad the trip went well and that you got to taste SF’s best treats, too :) Congrats you two!
Congratulations on all of your success! It looks like a very fun trip. Bi Rite creamery is the best ice cream place. I love all their flavors, but my favorite is a toss between the strawberry balsalmic and earl grey tea.
Congrats!!! Such an exciting time for you.
How exciting! Can’t wait to get this book!!
OH. MY. STARS.! Just hopped over from Lori’s blog at RecipeGirl.com. Not only are you the wickedest web designer in the history of the world and mankind, but you have now written the cookbook of my dreams…my tummy’s dreams. I’m all about Breakfast for Dinner! So FABULOUS that you thought of this concept for your cookbook. (Where have I been???) LOVE, LOVE, LOVE IT! Congratulations! Headed on over to Amazon to order without delay…like, NOW!! xo
Boy, were you guys busy or what? That’s an amazing experience, I’m so happy for both of you! I also brag many, many times about you being the best web designer ever!

Unil then I’ll keep checking your blog and devouring your posts!
Congrats! I wish I had been paying attention and known you were in SF…would have loved to stop by!
Congratulations! This cookbook totally calls for me, since I think eggs are way better for dinner than they are for breakfast. Can’t wait to get my own copy!
What a fun getaway! I always travel with my husband for his work and take that opportunity to tour around. Hope to visit Napa someday :)
