Upscale Downhome GAME DAY: Recipes and Party Ideas for your Super Bowl Party!

Last minute SUPER BOWL SUNDAY party?

Whether you’re hosting or a guest needing to bring something for the potluck…

YOU’RE IN BIG LUCK.

TODAY, February 5th, before 5pm EST, pre-order Rachel Hollis’ Upscale Downhome: Family Recipes All Gussied Up and you’ll get an exclusive digital copy of Upscale Downhome Gameday, which includes five recipes perfect for your Super Bowl party, as well as some great Super Bowl party planning ideas! Three of the recipes inside are from the cookbook, which goes on sale in October, which means you’re getting a sneak peek before anyone else. Two of them are totally new and not available anywhere but in this cool download!

Upscale Downhome features recipes that are “a mix of my down-home roots and the upscale presentation I’ve learned from living in Los Angeles for the last fifteen years,” Rachel reveals. “This book is a perfect testament to my life long love affair with food. It has the sugar cookie recipe my mom made me as a child, the chicken and dumplings I craved while pregnant. It has the turkey chili recipe which was the first dish I perfected as a newlywed. And the cocktail I drank in my early twenties… it’s the story of my life, as told in food. Upscale Downhome is filled with casseroles, slow cooker recipes, desserts, drinks and there’s even an entire section on dishes you can make with the leftovers from the recipes in other chapters!”

Remember, once you pre-order, go to this page to retrieve your Upscale Downhome Game Day mini-cookbook!

FREEBIE FRIDAY: “How to Hang a Picture” by Jay Sacher and Suzanne LaGasa

Like tying a Windsor knot or brewing a perfect cup of coffee, knowing how to hang art on your wall is a hallmark of everyday style and nuts-and-bolts know-how. The where, what, and whys of hanging art are an overlooked, under-appreciated line of inquiry. Most of us simply wing it with a quick eyeball and a swing of the hammer. How hard can it be? we think. What can go wrong?

How to Hang a Picture: And Other Essential Lessons for a Stylish Home is a user-friendly guidebook that details everything you need to know about hanging, framing, decorating and displaying art. If Strunk & White’s Elements of Style was crossed with a no-nonsense how-to manual, you will have captured the tone and immediacy of How to Hang a Picture: simple rules and essential information presented with charm and intelligence.

And best of all, we’re so excited about this book, we’re giving away five copies over on Goodreads

Meet Our New Author, Mr. Bazaar

Bright Bazaar logo

Our new author Will Taylor (a.k.a Mr. Bazaar) runs the fantastic blog Bright Bazaar, which is a feast for the eyes. Will covers all things colorful and I guarantee you that you’ll get lost on his website scrolling through the loads of bold and beautiful color combinations.

Check out the charmingly adorable video above that Will made of himself running around London in a red sweater and bow tie, getting inspired by color, and typing his manuscript on a vintage yellow typewriter. It just makes you want to hop on a plane to London to stroll the streets with him while he dictates the colors you should paint every room in your house.

I know this announcement is way far in advance of the Fall 2014 pub date, but we’re so excited to be working on this new project with the great Mr. Bazaar that we can’t help but share his enthusiasm and let you all know about his wonderful blog and the exciting news about what’s sure to be a fantastic book!
