Coming November 30!!

Cookies I Have Loved is a compilation of my most well-used cookie recipes —a collection that includes best-sellers from the cookie bakery I opened in the nineties, recipes inherited from friends and relatives, and favourites I came to love over the years. It’s the second in my series of small format, single subject cookbooks, which started with Dirty Food (see below!). Note that it also has a rad exposed spine, designed to a) look cool, and b) so the book lies flat on your kitchen counter! (This book has blue thread in the stitched binding, and Dirty Food has orange.)

I’m doing something unique with sales for this one, just because I can. I’ve decided to make Cookies I Have Loved available exclusively through independent booksellers across Canada, and online here. Because I’m circumventing the steep discounts, mandatory marketing fees and shared markdowns imposed by many large retailers, a portion of direct sales through my website —$1 per book— will directly support food-related community initiatives. (School and community pantries and kitchens, sending meals to ICU staff, that sort of thing.) I’m excited to direct people to support the few fantastic indie bookstores we have left, and do some good in our communities.

As always, if you order through me I’ll sign each book (to someone specific, if you like!) and we’ll ship any number of books for free within Canada. (And yes, I ship to the US as well, for an added $6!)

Stay tuned for an ordering page! And if you’re an independent retailer and are interested in carrying it, email us for terms and specs at cookiebook@shaw.ca! And if I’m in town, I’m happy to come do a (safe) signing!

I also have stock of Dirty Food, and will sign and ship as many copies as you’d like for free anywhere in Canada! (And yes, I ship to the US as well, for an added $6!) You can order by PayPal or credit card! (And yes, you can have them personalized! There’s an “autograph the books to” column on the PayPal order form, and if you’re ordering by credit card there’s the option to add a message at the end of the checkout – you can let me know who to sign your books to!) Thank you!!

By the way, both books can be purchased on the same order – each page will add the title to your PayPal shopping cart!

The rest of my books are available at Chapters as well as independent bookstores across Canada, though it seems some of my older titles are now out of print. Thanks so much for your support!
