It’s finally here! My editor, Jean Lucas of Andrews McMeel sent me an advance copy of A Mouthful of Stars while I was on spring break in Hawaii. A birthday lunch at my favorite seaside restaurant, Mama’s Fish House, with friends and family, cocktails, and Stars. The cover is gorgeous and the whole design team at AM created such a lovely book. Thank you!! And to Leela Cyd for her gorgeous photography and Adrian Hale for bringing the recipes to life.
