The Pretty Dish Launch Party!
I have to thank you for making yesterday one of the best days of my life.
Hearing from all of you who got The Pretty Dish those of you that were literally waiting for the amazon delivery – it was amazing!
And last night we had a launch party at Floor 2. It was SO fun! When my first book launched, I was at a signing in Florida. I knew that for this one, I wanted to be HOME. This is normally a post I would share over on my crumbs page, but I couldn’t help sharing it here since you were a big part of it!
We started with the signature cocktail – rosé all day! Um, it’s a mix of tequila AND rosé. Hello, that is me. In a drink.
It was a cocktail/snacks party (is there any better kind?) that included mini smash burgers, oyster tartines (OMG), oxtail empanadas with green goddess dressing, caramelized onion, goat cheese and bacon flatbread annnnnd of course, cheese and charcuterie. I wish that I could say I took a thousand pictures, but I didn’t! I couldn’t! I just enjoyed the night and it was such a blast. I did swipe some of these from instagram stories though!
Speaking of, you guys are absolutely blowing me away with your love for The Pretty Dish! I’m stunned at how incredible #theprettydish hashtag is already, I’m in love with everything you guys are sharing with me, the photos of recipes you have already made, the pics you’re DMing me and how wonderful you are being about the book. This means so, so, so much to me. THANK YOU! I want to see everything you’re making!
Also! Remember that I’m giving away a bunch fo $250 amazon gift cards! To enter, post a picture of your copy of The Pretty Dish (a photo with you, a photo with or without a recipe that you have made – whatever you’d like!) on your instagram page (not instagram stories) with the hashtags #theprettydish and #howsweeteats. You can enter as many times as you’d like as long as the picture is your own! Each photo is one entry. This giveaway runs through Saturday, March 31st and there will be five winners! (If you don’t have instagram, you can email me a picture of your dish as entry!) This giveaway is open to EVERYONE!
I actually had a new recipe planned for today – and I scrapped it at the 11th hour (or, um, 2am, as I’m writing this post). But I wanted to share THIS because you guys have been so incredibly supportive and my love for you is UNREAL! You are making this a dream come true! xo

My copy came yesterday! Hurray!
And I don’t think anyone would mind if you remade that rose all day cocktail for your blog. Just sayin’. Sounds right up my alley. :)
So happy & excited for you! Can’t wait to feast my eyeballs on this soon! :) :) :) You’re the OG food blog I ever followed, and you truly taught me via internets how to cook creatively. LOVE!
SUCH an awesome launch party! And you already saw me celebrating the arrival of your book :) XOXO
I am anxiously waiting the arrival of your book!! It was supposed to be delivered yesterday but we’re getting 15+ inches of snow here in Maryland and they didn’t make it to our house. Hopefully it comes today! Can’t wait!! Congratulations!
You look gorgeous and so, so happy in these pictures!!! Wish I could have been there to celebrate with you! xo

Fingers crossed my copy is waiting for me at home tonight!! xoxo
Ahhh! So excited for you! I think it’s a bit of a wait for The Pretty Dish in the UK, amazon is saying it will be dispatched on the 1st April! I’m jealous of everyone’s pictures! Can’t wait to hold it and flick through it!
My copy arrived Tuesday. It’s beautiful. And I looked through it just enough to know I have to make that pasta dish with the lobster and burrata ASAP!.
Time to celebrate!!! Beautiful book….. now about that blue lace dress you are wearing!! Where did you get it and is there a picture of the dress without the jacket??
Congratulations Jessica! You have so much to be proud of! I just ordered my book and am looking forward to receiving it!
Just got my copy and am loving it!!!!!! What a great book. Congrats on making your dream come true!
Awesome party!!!! My sister in-law got the gift copy for her birthday present (3/16 – her baby was just born ON her birthday too!). She signed up for your recipe group, and I’m going to try to follow along too!
