      Well, damn. I misspelled "palate," and "underway" should be one word. Well, ignore my typos (It's not like I have a degree in English and journalism or anything... ahem), but Please, do not ignore Chef Lyon's campaign! Forty-three hours to go, and he's a third of the way there. Get your Christmas shopping done in only One stop here this weekend, shipped for Free, AND make someone's dream come true this year! Now there's some good karma for you.

      For anyone who is looking at this campaign and is considering pledging, you can not lose. Chef Nathan Lyon's seasonal cookbook is a feast for the eyes as well as the palette! There are well over a hundred unique recipes inside, all of which have been tested repeatedly to ensure that they will be perfect for you! Full color photos are works of art in themselves, worthy of hanging on your wall. Fresh, seasonal, local, natural, organic ingredients are always the focus. Nathan's recipes will please vegetarians and vegans as well as the omnivores among us. And who could possibly resist a book that features Chocolate as its own season?

      Christmas is just around the corner, and the holiday shopping season is about to get under way. What better gift is there to give than a beautiful collection of recipes that will last throughout the years? Signed copies, personalized messages, tote bags, and t-shirts are just some of the extras that are possibilities here, not to mention Free Shipping. But you will also be giving the gift of making someone else's dream come true this year, and That is priceless.

      Support your artists and small businesses this year. We need you, in any form of support. Thank you, Kickstarter supporters!

      Much love,

      Shannon M. Russell
