    Hi Jaden, so happy that you are done and your BIG BIG day is approaching closer and closer.I have to say it was so nice to meet you in Florida this Feb and know a little more about you in real life and your preparation for your cookbook….It’s different when you have met someone in person, if you know what I mean. Best wishes…….

    You go Girl! Already have the cookbook on pre-order from Amazon and will try to be patient until it arrives this fall. Glad you created the book on a mac–surely makes life a whole lot easier! I’m a mac person too.

    Congratulations, Jaden! I’m so excited for you! I hope you do a book signing near me so I can finally meet you in person! You are a rockstar!

  13. PatriciaW

    What a beautiful cookbook! These days, cookbooks are almost coffee table books. I love the pictures of ingredients and finished recipes, as well as the added explanations and background info common in today’s cookbooks.

  14. Diane-The WHOLE Gang

    Congratulations!!!!! That is so exciting. The book looks amazing. I’m going to have to get a copy. I’m guessing I’ll need to change out a few ingredients since I can’t eat gluten, dairy or rice. Rice I miss the most. Thank you for sharing that moment with us. You are an inspiration to someone like myself who would love to publish my recipes in a cookbook someday. Again, Congrats!

  16. Chris

    Congrats Jaden! Can’t wait to get my hands on a copy! Thanks for the sneak peek, and sharing your special moment with us!

  17. Tartelette

    Congratulations! So flipping excited for you! I am in the final edits too and stalling on the acknowledgments page…It’s turning into a poetic tribute!! So sorry I did not have time to be one of your recipe testers but I will be first in line to get the book to make them!
    If only I had 1/10th of your energy!!




  18. Jen Yu

    Congrats, lady! Kudos to you on cranking out that book while juggling thirty-seven other top priorities. You pwned it, woman. xxoo

  19. SpecialEd

    I have a spot on the bookshelf for it, right next to all of David’s books! (Of course Asian cookbooks go next to Dessert books!)

  20. sarah

    hooray, jaden!! CONGRATULATIONS!!! you must be so happy, and relieved, and we all can’t wait to see the book once it’s out! πŸ™‚ hope you’re either sleeping soundly or celebrating…

  21. marion

    It was soooooooo cool to test ^^
    I can’t wait to have it πŸ™‚ instead of my well printed recipes from the forum
    I still cook with it and everything is just perfect
    So thank you very much, again, and I’m just in a hurry to get it, at least πŸ™‚

  22. Diana

    CONGRATULATIONS!! Now get some rest before your whirlwind book tour πŸ™‚ I can’t wait to finally hold it in my hands. I’m getting two so I can give one away.

  23. Dallas

    Yay! Jaden, this is fabulous. So excited for you. You must feel like a million bucks! I can’t WAIT to buy my copy in a few months’ time. Now go have a glass of wine, girl.

  24. Pat

    Jaden, Very glad to hear the good news!! As excited as I am to get a copy, you and your Family must be ecstatic! All the hard work and waiting are finally going to pay off. I will be watching for the release date. Thank you so much for doing this.

  25. pat

    Congratulations, Jaden! The book looks gorgeous. I sent off my final manuscript a couple months back and boy was it an awesome feeling!

  26. Barry

    Wow, the book looks phenomenal! Can’t wait ’til mine ships from Amazon. I honestly don’t know how you manage to be a mom, blogger and TV personality and cookbook author. Congratulations!

  27. Dawn in CA

    Congrats, congrats, congrats! The book looks beautiful from the sneak peak. I can only imagine the work that must have gone into making it… sort of like giving birth, I imagine?!?! So now you’ll have to go through all the post-partum feelings: amazement, exhaustion, relief, wonder, joy… and a little bit of unexplainable sadness that the project is finished. Don’t worry, that last one is only fleeting. πŸ™‚

    Congratulations Jade!
