Beyond the Kitchen

Life Lately:

I’m thinking of renaming these Loving Lately posts to… Outside the Kitchen? Or Something? You guys, I’m not witty. Can you help me come up with a cute name for these weekly little dates? Pretty please! Comment, email, message, snap me!

Okay, aside from that… SO MUCH has been going on. 

I spent a few days last week in Indiana with some awesome bloggers and my favorite tomato company, Tuttorosso! More on this, but it was such an awesome few days and I learned so much about the process of growing the tomatoes then getting them into the can and out to us consumers!


Since I’ve been back, something came in the mail: MY COOKBOOK. Holy moly. I wasn’t expecting it for at least a week or 2, so when FedEx arrived 2 days ago, I nearly fell over! I did a little Facebook LIVE (my very first one), and totally loved doing. I kept it short, but I’ll be doing tons more. You can see a sneak peek of the book in this teaser video below!
