Celebrate Good Times, Come On!

Almost a year ago, we threw our forthcoming wee one a shindig, and dubbed it a Nugget Warming (for those of you new to this blog, “Nugget” was Huxley’s in utero nickname). We’d had two other baby showers thrown for us, but we wanted to put our personal spin on things, cook up a mess of seasonal, local food, and gather around the fire ring with a smattering of our nearest and dearest. You can read about the hijinks, shenanigans and general merriment that surrounded the event here.


Our Nugget Warming was also captured for all to see and entombed in posterity in the brand new book Where Women Cook-Celebrate!. Some of you may recall that I write for Where Women Cook magazine (the fall issue, where I chat about all things apple, is available in stores now!). Where Women Cook-Celebrations is produced by Jo Packham, the force behind the magazine, as well as Where Women Create magazine (which is also available in book form). It showcases celebrations thrown by “28 bloggers, chefs, cookbook authors and kitchen creatives”, ranging from Fourth of July bonanzas (Ree Drummond!) to finding seasonal joy in cooking up a big pot of risotto (Béa Peltre!).

I am completely honored to be included in the company of such incredible women. While the book officially publishes October 4th, it will be offered up in advance at The Creative Connection Event. We 3 Englishes are headed that way tomorrow morning, returning home on Sunday (wish us luck-Huxley will be with Hubs for a good chunk of the event and he’s used to having access to mama whenever he pleases!!!).

I adore a good celebration. I’m in the midst of planning a very special one right now, to take place in late October, celebrating the first journey around the sun for the same Nugget celebrated one year ago!!!
