A package arrived on my doorstep earlier this week- my new Breakfast for Dinner cookbook! I’m thrilled to be one of the lucky few that got a sneak peek before the books actually hit the shelves next week.

And you guys…. I’m salivating. Please forgive me.

I want to eat breakfast for dinner, and lunch, and well, for breakfast! This is one of the best looking cookbooks I’ve seen in a long time, and I’m not just saying that because Lindsay and Taylor are my friends.

Yes, that’s right. I’m very fortunate to know the authors, Lindsay Landis and Taylor Hackbarth, the duo behind the food blog Love and Olive Oil. I’ve eaten their food. Several times (don’t be jealous). Lindsay and I planned the Nashville Food Blog Forum together. I helped test recipes from her first cookbook before it was published.

And I swear to you- I am not just saying this because I like them – Breakfast for Dinner is absolutely incredible. When I opened the package, I spent at least an hour (probably more), drinking in the beautiful photography and reading  through every scrumptious sounding recipe- Bacon Fried Rice, Cornmeal Pancakes with Beer-Braised Short Ribs, Habanero-Cheddar Bread Pudding, Bacon Jam, Vietnamese Iced Coffee Pops, just to name a few!

For all you Nashville folks, don’t miss out on your opportunity to meet Lindsay and Taylor in person next week at Parnassus Books and buy their fantastic new cookbook the very first day it goes on sale! I have a feeling they may even sign a copy for you :-)
