Shop the Book – my new APP!!

Ryan and I dreamt this cookbook companion app up 8 years ago when my first cookbook came out, and it’s finally come to fruition just in time for your holiday cooking.🥳

If you all enjoy using it as a companion to your cookbook, we hope to have my other books added to the app as well so you can make grocery lists, search for, and favorite ⭐️ your recipes across all 4 of my cookbooks. How cool will that be?!

Download the free app (search Danielle Walker or Shop the Book), and swipe or search to find your favorite recipes from Celebrations. You can add the ingredients to your shopping list, take your app with you to the store, and check off all your needs as you add them to your grocery cart. It’s the perfect companion to your cookbook, and allows for error free meal planning and shopping.

Last year’s Christmas Special was a highlight of the season for me – it was so much fun! 🎄 Enjoy this segment as Ryan joins me and we make my recipe for a rich #chocolate fudge.

You can view the entire special on YouTube plus grab my recipe for dairy-free eggnog there!

Fudge Recipe ⬇️
1 cup pure maple syrup
1⁄2 cup coconut sugar
1⁄4 cup expeller-pressed coconut oil or ghee
1 cup raw cashew butter
6 tablespoons arrowroot powder
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
1⁄2 teaspoon fine sea salt
12 ounces unsweetened baking chocolate
(100 percent cacao), chopped

Line a 9 by 13-inch baking dish with parchment paper and leave flaps hanging over the side of the dish for easy removal.
In a saucepan over medium-low heat, combine the maple syrup, coconut sugar, and coconut oil. Stir until the coconut sugar melts and the mixture is liquid, about 5 minutes. Whisk in the cashew butter, arrowroot powder, vanilla, salt, and chocolate and continue stirring over low heat until the chocolate melts and everything is well blended, about 5 minutes more.
Pour the fudge into the prepared baking dish and smooth the top with a rubber spatula. Chill in the refrigerator until set, about 6 hours. Cut into squares and serve.

make it ahead: Once the fudge has cooled to room temperature, cover the pan tightly with plastic wrap and store in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks or in the freezer for up to 3 months. Thaw in the refrigerator overnight before cutting into squares and serving.

Santa made me cry.

The little 2 wanted to see the Santa at the brunch we were at over the weekend, and Asher tagged along. After hearing Kezia and Easton’s excited gift requests, he looked at Asher and said “How old are you? 10 or 11?”
Asher replied that he was 11. Then, what Santa said next is what made me cry.

“When was the last time you held your mom’s hand crossing the street?” He asked. “2 or 3 years ago?”

“See, what you don’t know is that your mom didn’t know that was going to be the last time.
So for Christmas, just hold her hand once more.”

Okayyyyy Santa. 😭😭😭

    Love the app, please add the other books. I’m always thinking about your recipes if I’m picking up dinner ingredients on my way home from work, but always miss some key ingredients.
    I used to have your Cookery app, but it disappeared when I upgraded my phone and it’s not on the App Store anymore. Gosh I used that one to death!
