AN EPIPHANY OF THE SENSES, An Eclectic Recipe Collection Guaranteed To Awaken Your Senses. It is with great joy and pleasure that I present to you my cookbook.

It's been many months of planning and typing, many recipe testings, many photographs, many late nights, many stressful days, many glasses of wine, several drafts, many nights of feeding my husband bad dinners because I had deadlines to meet, even many "Ouch, I think my butt is numb from sitting too long". But I'm so happy to finally show everyone the big "secret" project I have been pouring all of my energy and soul into. It is specially wonderful to be able to share it with you my most loyal and supportive readers and new foodie friends. You the ones who take the time to visit my blog and read my words.

The doorbell rang very early in the morning, we were still in bed, and as usual when the doorbell rings that early I make my husband get up to answer it (I know I'm mean, hehe). He came back to our bedroom telling me that I had to sign for the package. I'm not a morning person and I was so out of it I didn't even image that it was my cookbook being delivered. The FedEx guy handed me the electronic thingy to sign and I quickly saw what the package was, woohoo! I don't think I even signed my name, it looked more like hieroglyphics. I ran back to bed and ripped open the package. When I saw the book it was like Christmas had come early for me. I couldn't contain the joy nor wipe the smile off my face. We laid in our warm bed flipping through the book, I still smiling and thinking to myself this is the ultimate payoff from all my hard work. My sweet dear husband, who is always so supportive of me, telling me how proud of me he is and saying how great he thought the book looked, that was the cherry on top. I could never get tired of hearing him say that to me.

I dedicated the cookbook to him (my husband) because of all the love, support and encouragement he has always given me. I have also dedicated it to you, the loyal followers and readers of Spicie Foodie. You the ones who have encouraged me to keep going and learning, for always being supportive and always having nothing but warm friendship and kind comments for me, Thank you. (You know who you are)

I spent the past 6 months cataloging, typing and photographing my favourite recipes to include in the book. The result has been an eclectic recipe collection that is guaranteed to awaken your senses. All recipes are dishes I love both to eat and cook on a regular basis. A few of the recipes included have been published on my blog but are fundamental recipes both in my kitchen and to the book. The remaining majority are new recipes never before published.
