Media Roundup: One Month Since Book Launch

My “Ten Dollar Dinners” cookbook has been out for one month, and it’s been such an exciting and rewarding experience. From the 20-city book tour to earning a spot on the New York Times’ best-seller list three weeks in a row, I feel so grateful for all the support from fans, friends and also from media nationwide.

I wanted to share a few highlights of the local media coverage from the past month, some from cities I visited on book tour and others that generously covered the release of my book.

Happy reading!
