Modern Comfort Cooking is a cookbook full of delicious meals of all your favorite comfort foods made fresh and new!

Can you believe it?


Yep, yep. Today Modern Comfort Cooking turns a year old. Crazy how time flies. I remember announcing that I was writing a cookbook back in April of 2017. After the announcement, it was off to the races because I had less than three months to finish my manuscript and take all the photography! Whoa bessie.

But all that hard work paid off because I got to see the fruits of my labor with three amazing launch parties, reviews from major publications like Oprah & Real Simple. Plus, I teamed up with Olena Films to make Modern Comfort Cooking come to life with a cookbook trailer. Also, this trailer still gives me all the feels.

Even though it’s only been a year, Modern Comfort Cooking has given me so much. Yes, it sounds cheesy AF, but it’s true. Seeing people make the recipes from the cookbook makes my heart full. Having people tell me they got back into the kitchen because they were so excited to make a recipe. Hearing my photography has inspired someone to pursue their passion is what really this all about.

It’s not about me. It’s about YOU. YOU made the cookbook come to life and for that I can’t thank you enough. For your continued devotion to CGM to making all the crazy recipes I put in front of you to giving me a chance to do something that I am wildly passionate about.

With that, the best way to say THANK YOU and celebrate Modern Comfort Cooking is to giveaway a copy + $150 Gift Card to Nordstroms to one lucky reader!
