Special Offer: The Perfect Gift for New Parents

bookplates for Parents Need to Eat Too by Debbie Koenig
They’re even prettier in real life!

Because it’s Cyber Monday, I’m making a special offer on an old-school item: My cookbook. Because you can’t really wrap up a website, can you?

If your best friend/daughter/niece/coworker/stepson/name-your-relation just had a baby, or is expecting one, I can’t think of a better gift than food. But consider that old saying: Give a mom a fish, she eats for one night. Teach a mom to fish… Plus a casserole might not fare too well wrapped up under the tree. It might be wiser to surprise the new parents in your life with a cookbook that gives moms and dads all the ammunition they need to take care of themselves.

Which is where I come in, with a special holiday offer. Forward to me your receipt for Parents Need to Eat Too via the “contact” button at top right, and I’ll mail you a signed bookplate and blank card. For free. All you’ll have to do is sign the card, place the bookplate inside the book (the dedication page has the perfect amount of space), and wrap. You’ll get major aren’t you thoughtful points for virtually no effort. Pair it with a slow cooker to make it super-duper-special.

Hanukkah starts in just two weeks, so act fast!

I’ll sign on the dotted line


Blank inside, for your seasonal words of encouragement

So, what are you waiting for? As the advertising folk like to say: Supplies are limited, so don’t delay!

Choose your bookseller:

Amazon | Barnes & Noble | Indiebound

(Here’s where I blush and acknowledge the audacity of the illustration. I don’t mean to suggest that Parents Need to Eat Too is up there with the work of MFK Fisher and Julia Child. Not remotely. That image is an adaptation of an existing piece of art I found on Etsy, site of all things handmade and groovy. Nancy Nikko, the creator of this gorgeous work, made both the bookplates and the cards.)

    Ordering three copies! I still don’t have one for myself. I’m hoping one of the cousins I’m ordering for makes it to your classes sometime.

      Thanks, Aileen! Be sure to send me your address, etc.
