My Cookbook, Slushed, is available for pre-order!

Tuesday, February 14th, 2012

I’m so excited. I can’t even explain it.

Breathe, Mouse, breathe. I know.

*drumroll*

My cookbook, Slushed!: More than 150 Frozen, Boozy Treats for the Coolest Happy Hour Ever, will be released on April 15, 2012. (Click here to pre-order today from Amazon.)

(!!!)

File those taxes, then blend yourself up a few frosty cocktails, right?

The book is a collection of easy-to-make, booze-infused frozen desserts (everything from pops to ice cream and frozen cocktails).

If you know me, you probably know that I make a lot of ice cream. You probably also know I shake up my fair share of cocktails—and I’m no stranger to booze-ifying my recipes (hello, Drunken Coffee Jello Squares).

Spiked, frozen desserts are right up my alley.

I did all the recipe development, writing, and photography right here in my kitchen in Salem, so I guarantee you that this book is 100% Mouse-Made.

Here’s a sneak peak at the covers.

A big thank you!

Thanks again to everyone who stuck by me last summer as I churned my way (pun intended) through literally hundreds of gallons of ice cream, gelato, sorbet, and sherbet.

You know who you are, and you know how much I love you.

Stay tuned for a ton of new recipes

Now that the book has gone through its final round of edits, I can get back to serious regular business here at The Hungry Mouse. It’s been a crazy 8 months or so.

But! The Mouse House has a brand new, huge stove, and I’ve been putting it through the paces. (Mile High Apple Pie, anyone?)

Stay tuned! Hope you all have a wonderful Valentine’s Day!

Oh my goodness, I got a book deal!

Monday, July 18th, 2011


Ahoy!

So, I’m so excited I might burst! I just signed the contract for my first book deal! (Can you see me glowing from there?)

OK.

*deep breaths*

Here’s the scoop.

The book

The working title is Slushed: From Frozen Gin Fizz to Watermelon Margarita Sorbet—150 Icy Treats for the Coolest Happy Hour Ever.

(Ah, frosty, liquid love.)

The book will be a collection of easy-to-make, booze-infused frozen desserts (everything from pops to ice cream and frozen cocktails). It’s scheduled to be published in the Spring of 2012.

If you know me, you probably know that I make a lot of ice cream. You probably also know I shake up my fair share of cocktails—and I’m no stranger to booze-ifying my recipes (hello, Drunken Coffee Jello Squares).

Spiked, frozen desserts are right up my alley.

My publisher

I’m working with Adams Media, a non-fiction publisher that prints over 300 books a year, including the Everything series, Why Men Love Bitches (which has sold over 1 million copies…holy cow, right?), and The New York Times Bestseller, The Unofficial Harry Potter Cookbook.

The deadline is pretty aggressive, so if you’re looking for me this summer, I’ll be in my kitchen commanding a small fleet of ice cream makers—writing recipes and shooting all the photography.

By the way, if you live in Salem, you’re hereby deputized as an Official Hungry Mouse Tester. You guys are generally a pretty thirsty bunch, so I’m guessing you might not mind. 😉

Stay tuned

Stay tuned for more news and recipes. It’s going to be a wild summer.

Talk to you soon!
