Baking It Up with Lorna Jane Clarkson & “Nourish” Cookbook Signing!

Baking It Up with Lorna Jane Clarkson & “Nourish” Cookbook Signing!
What a fun and very busy week! Last week I catered 4 events for Lorna Jane (talk about an arm workout!). There were LOTS of healthy treats involved, a very successful book signing event at the Santa Monica Store (line around the block!), and the best part is... (drum roll please) Lorna Jane Clarkson herself was there! I was so honored to be asked to cater all the events.

Here's the Recap...

As you know I am a proud Lorna Jane Ambassador and so touched to be so apart of such an amazing and inspiring brand as Lorna Jane. If you have not heard, recently Lorna Jane Clarkson released her new cookbook "Nourish." It’s packed with healthy and nourishing meals - very similar to my style of cooking and baking. It is so great (and very refreshing) to share a very similar philosophy and mission when it comes to nutrition. Lorna Jane was nice enough to send me one of the first copies and I dived right in. This is my hammock - also known as my "chill-laxin" (chill + relax) place. "Chill-laxin" on my hammock with a fresh new copy of Nourish. So as the passionate and pro baker that I am - I was thrilled when Lorna Jane asked me to cater all the weeks events for them! I whipped up some of my own recipes from Moni Meals along with many from the Nourish Cookbook. Let me just say that there was not one gift bag in sight! Each gift bag (made with only love of course) contained my Cashew Cookie Chew Balls and then I also made Cacao, Chia Seeds, and Hazelnut Protein Balls out of Nourish. People loved them and it was awesome.

The book signing turned out great. I was so excited when I got there. I saw this huge line around the block at the Santa Monica Place. Whoa! I love seeing how many people are touched and in love with the brand but also the move nourish believe philosophy that Lorna Jane stems from. Really though, everyone was so thrilled to get the chance to meet Lorna Jane Clarkson in person. On top of that, people we so ecstatic to also stock up on fresh new LJ activewear while they were in the store and they also heard the buzz about my yummy treats too! He-he. People were so great and would come up to me raving about the snacks and it was so rewarding to see.
Move. Nourish. Believe.

I honestly meet so many wonderful people in line too that drove from all over to meet the inspiring Lorna Jane. That is what it is all about. Lots of Inspiration. I love how women are really coming together too! All in all it was such a fun and positive event from start to finish.
So one of my favorite people. Lorna Jane Clarkson you are amazing. What was truly amazing to see was how much time she spent with each person so excited to meet her. It was incredible!
