My Darling Lemon Thyme | The Cookbook...

My Darling Lemon Thyme | The cookbook

So I've been sitting on some pretty damn exciting news for the past few months... you may or may not have noticed that my posting rate has dropped somewhat and while some of it has been caused by train-wreck weeks and trips to the beach... mostly I've been quiet around here because I've been busy writing a cookbook!!! Ekkkkkk!

I can't say too much at this stage but I'm super excited to be publishing with Harper Collins Publishers (New Zealand) and over the coming months will be busy pulling together the book that I have dreamt of writing for as long as I can remember. It will be out some time towards the end of next year and don't you worry, I'll keep you all in the loop along the way and you'll all be the first to know details as soon as I can share more. We are taking the kids home to NZ for a holiday and to take a bunch of the photos in my home town of Raglan early next year too, which I am beyond excited about!

Thank you all so much for stopping by over the past few years, without your support my lofty idea to write a cookbook would never have eventuated. I'm still going to try my hardest to get at least one post up here a week, but if that slows down every now and then, you know why :-)

Lotsa love always 
Emm xx

P.S That cute photo above is of Ada's cookbook that she whipped up in a matter or minutes all the while saying to me "why can't you write a cookbook as fast as I can mum?". Haha, if only love.
