Links: Book Tour Notes, Pickles, and Birmingham

A shelf of painted jars. I'm normally opposed to painted jars, but these are kind of cool.

The book tour goodness continues! We had rain for most of Saturday in Atlanta, but that didn’t stop people from coming out to the Carter Center and Piedmont Park (including Whit from the Locurean and Jacin from Lovely Little Details/Salt Gatherings). I can’t thank Lyn from Preserving Now for putting together so many terrific events for me.

Today I drove to Birmingham and spent several hours sitting in my hotel room, trying to whittle down the contents of my inbox.I also had dinner with Kim from A Tiny Forest, which was such a treat. She makes all padded tote bags designed to hold and protect mason jars and I love my two-jar bag.

Tomorrow night, I’m teaching a sold out class at Birmingham Bake & Cook and Wednesday, I’ll be at The Booksellers at Laurelwood from 6-7 pm doing a demo and signing books. And then on Friday, Chicago! Now, links!

It’s been quite a scramble around here getting ready to leave on this southern book tour of mine and so these links are now a full day late (so sorry to keep you guys waiting for the winners in the Cutco giveaway). I head out tomorrow morning and have come to the point where I’ve done all I can do before I hit the road. I will try to catch up with the rest later.

Oh! And thanks to everyone who came and picked up a book yesterday at the Philly Farm & Food Fest. It was such a treat to meet so many of you! Now, links!

And so many cookbook links!

The Eat Boutique Pop Up is open! Come on over!

I got back from a whirlwind weekend in Boston late last night (which is why this links post is a tiny bit late). I was there for the Eat Boutique Spring Pop Up Market at Fringe and I had a delightful time. I made many batches of Honey Sweetened Strawberry Jam and Mustardy Rhubarb Chutney from the new book, signed lots of books, and chatted with so many lovely people who came out to say hi.

I also got lots of quality time in with Maggie and her crew from Eat Boutique (they still have a few of my Food in Jars Favorites boxes in stock!), finally met the guys from Cuppow in person, and had dinner with Janet and some of her family (during which I got to eat some of the best fried chicken of my life). It was a good weekend. Now, links!

In other news, my new book has been getting some very nice mentions across the internet. If you write something about the new book, please do let me know. If you make something and share it on Instagram, make sure to tag me so that I can link it up as well! Here are a few of the latest.

Foundation Salt Set - Food in Jars

The winner of last week’s giveaway is #147/Purlewe. I hope you all enjoyed the salt-focused recipes, as well. I highly recommend them both. I ate those garlicky cucumbers all darned week and they were so good. And the kimchi is nearly finished. I can’t wait.

I’ll have another giveaway up later today, so check back in a bit!

I'm at the Fair Food Farmstand! Come say hi!

I spent four hours on Saturday hanging out at the Fair Food Farmstand at Reading Terminal Market, sharing tastes of Honey Sweetened Strawberry Jam and signing copies Preserving by the Pint. It was a great day and so fun to meet so many of you! Thanks to everyone who braved the torrential rain to come out! Now, links.

Amazing ramen and kimchi. Yay for serendipitous IACP lunches!

I’m in Chicago. I got here on Friday afternoon and go home Tuesday night. The first few days were turned over entirely to the IACP conference and tomorrow and Tuesday, I’m headed to the International Home and Housewares Show. So far, it’s been a spectacular trip. I signed a bunch of my books last night at the Book & Blog Festival, there’ve been a number of delectable meals, and I’ve gotten to see so many people that I just adore. It has been so good. Now, links!

I’ve got no winners to announce because the weekly giveaway is on vacation! However, don’t fret! I will be back on Monday, March 24, so stay tuned!

Links: Author Copies, June Taylor, and Winners

My author copies have arrived! It's getting real!

On Saturday, some of my author copies arrived. I went from having a single copy of the new book in the apartment to having a stack of 15. My email is exploding with logistics and my to-do list has run over to a second page in my notebook. I’m dealing with the stress of it all by continuing to knit simple scarves and walking to the dog park to watch the pups run wrestle and run after toys.

The quiet before the storm is always the hardest part for me. Once the book is out there and everything starts rolling, I’ll be good. It’s just this period of anticipation that’s making me ever so slightly crazy. Now, links!

The giveaway is going on vacation for the next couple weeks, but will be back on March 24. Stay tuned!
