I have some huge and thrilling news!

Are you ready???

I’M WRITING A COOKBOOK!! A real, tangible, sold-in-stores cookbook!

The current title (it could always change) is Cookies + Cream: Inspired Recipes for Homemade Ice Cream Sandwiches. The book will feature cookie recipes and ice cream recipes with fun and tasty ways to pair them for ice cream sandwiches. The book will be published by Running Press and will tentatively be released in spring of 2013.

I’m beyond excited about this project. I feel so lucky to have the opportunity to publish a book, especially being so young. I’d like to thank my book agent, Holly Schmidt. I’d espeically like to thank all my readers! You guys have helped make my life and career more amazing than I could have imagined. I really hope you all will enjoy the cookbook. I’ll be posting my progress here and on Twitter, so stay tuned for more news!
