Ten years ago today, I published the first post on The Geeky Hostess. TEN YEARS. At that point, I just wanted an excuse to learn a bit more about cooking and parties, and wanted to showcase a bit more female representation in the geeky fandoms I loved. In that time, I’ve written for some of my favorite people and companies, I created a line of sprinkles, I hosted a variety of events, I spoke on panels and podcasts, and I’ve published two cookbooks. Yes, TWO! Today I get to announce that my second cookbook is available for pre-order!
Announcing Break an Egg: A Broadway Cookbook. This book has 55 recipes based on Broadway musicals and a ton of puns and inside jokes for drama kids and theatre lovers. Check out the book trailer!
I’m a huge Broadway musical fan and have been attending shows and performing in my community and school theater troupes since I was a kiddo. I assumed I’d be the only one that would love a themed cookbook this much, and was delighted when my publisher and agent were as excited about the idea as I was! This entire cookbook was a labor of love and resulted in a ton of really fun conversations between my editor and I on which shows we absolutely should include and what recipes/jokes should be used for each. I’m so proud of this book and can’t wait for you to see it in person.
The cookbook isn’t out until September 1st, but you can preorder it now on Amazon. Check back here in the coming week as I showcase two of the recipes from the book. In the meantime, let me know what musicals you hope to see included!
I can’t imagine a better way to celebrate ten years of the Geeky Hostess. Thank you all for going on this ride with me. I can’t wait to see what the future holds!
