In honor of Valentine's Day, I want to thank you for sharing your tales of young love gone sideways, Pamela and I really appreciate it. I also want to take a moment to give a brief shout-out to my Charming Suitor for essentially making every day Valentine's Day. (I know, its mushy, but he totally does.)
Congrats to the following winners of a signed copy of Notes to Boys! Please email your shipping address to staceyballisinfo (at) gmail dot com:
For the rest of you, I hope you will buy a copy of this terrific book, maybe two....one for you and one for the person who begged you not to send that note to that crush. You can find it at your favorite local bookseller, or HERE.
In the meantime, I need your help. My first digital cookbook is going to be released this coming October. (SQUEE!) It will be the collected recipes from the novels, plus the "lost recipes" of dishes mentioned in the books but not included in the limited recipe sections in the back. I need a couple of things from my favorite readers:
1. Please comment with the names of the dishes you most want included that you haven't seen recipes for as yet. For example, the Mea Culpa Muffins from Good Enough to Eat will be making their first appearance. This is a good opportunity to go back to the books for a refresher, or to use it as an excuse to pick up one you might have missed! (hint hint)
2. I need a name for the cookbook. At the moment we are referring to it as Stacey Ballis' Big EBook of Yummy Deliciousness, which, you know, is god freaking awful. So I am looking for some titles with a similarly fun vibe, but less terribleness. I will pick the top few choices and put them up for a vote, and the top two vote getters will receive a fun package of cooking gadgets. If my editor picks any one of your titles for the actual book, not only will you get a signed copy of Out To Lunch, but I will use your name (or the name of your choosing) for a character in my next book. (to be clear, not in Recipe for Disaster, which is finished, but the NEXT one which I haven't started writing yet because of the cookbook thing).
So, comment below with recipes I need to include, AND possible cookbook titles between now and 11:59 PM Monday Feb. 24, and I will open voting on Feb. 25.
Thanks again to the fabulous Pamela Ribon for coming to visit and being so generous with the signed books!

As for the title, I love how you always end your blog posts "Yours in Good Taste" it is sort of like your trademark. I think that would be a cool title :)
