Preorder Bonus for The CSA Cookbook!

Pumpkin seed brittle

I can hardly believe that in just a little over a month, The CSA Cookbook will come to fruition!

Retailers are currently listing the publication date as February 16, which means those of you who have preordered the book will start to receive your copy shortly after. Which means you still have a few weeks left to place a preorder if you haven’t already!

To sweeten the deal, literally, I’m offering a bonus collection of recipes for every person who preorders The CSA Cookbook from any bookseller!

Sweet potato truffles

The CSA Cookbook: Bonus Recipe Bundle features eight indulgent, easy-to-make desserts based on… vegetables!

I’m talking brittles and brownies, truffles and cookies. I’m talking delicious desserts to help you make the most of your CSA box, farmers’ market basket, or backyard bounty. It’s a fun and wonderful way to use up excess produce and learn how to incorporate more vegetables into your cooking. Desserts were one of the categories I had to cut out of my book because of space limitations, so this bundle is the perfect complement to The CSA Cookbook.

Some recipes are unabashedly all vegetable, like my Tomato Tarte Tatin, which turns so rich and juicy in the oven that your sweet tooth will sing. Others use a vegetable to improve the texture and deepen the flavor, like my Beet Brownie Bites, which your guests won’t even realize are made with earthy beets.

When you preorder my book, you’ll receive a PDF file with these eight bonus recipes (and beautiful full-page photos) included:

  • Beet Brownie Bites
  • Carrot Cake Donuts with Cream Cheese Frosting
  • Sweet Potato Truffles
  • Maple Butternut Squash Pudding
  • Cinnamon-Cardamom Pumpkin Seed Brittle
  • Zucchini Chocolate Chip Cookies with Dried Cranberries
  • Cucumber Mint Granita
  • Tomato Tarte Tatin

The Bonus Recipe Bundle will be emailed to you on March 1, the official release date of The CSA Cookbook. To claim your preorder gift, simply forward your receipt or proof of purchase to

This offer is valid through the entire preorder period, so if you’ve previously preordered, you are still eligible! Please note that the release date may change at any time without further notice, and we reserve the right to close this offer early. Preorder now to ensure you receive your gift!

Thank you so much for your continued support!
