Because life ain't all pizza & pop-tarts!

A few people have posted some clever, fun comments this week guessing that this cookbook will be filled with junk food - pizza and pop-tarts galore!  But the best junk food is not prepared at home, is it?  It's take-out, delivery, bought in a box, "heat & serve"...
Which is all decadent & delicious! But we don't need a cookbook for that. We need a drawer full of takeout menus, a toaster & a 7/11 within walking distance.
The purpose of this cookbook is to explore and celebrate the "other" foods found in Stars Hollow. Yes, this includes cheeseburgers - but cheeseburgers you can make at home with real ingredients that taste way better than anything from a drive-thru.
It's also about tantalizing dishes like:
  • Salmon Puffs
  • Mac & Cheese in a Jalapeno-Chipotle Cream Sauce
  • Rocky Road Cookies
  • Spaghetti & Meatballs
  • S'mores Wedding Cakes
  • Magic Risotto
  • Paella
  • Ratatouille
  • Pancakes
  • Blueberry Shortcake
  • Mushroom Soup
  • Zucchini Soup
  • Peach Pie
  • Monte Cristo Sandwiches
  • Four types of pesto
  • Pineapple-Mango Chutney
  • A Goat-Cheese-Stuffed Pretzel basket
These here....these are the foods I'm talking about, Willis. Real foods, using real ingredients. Foods that both sound & taste really good!
If you're into these foods, then please come aboard - pre-order a book or become a tester or a booster or take the WB tour with me.  The Kickstarter campaign is active until April 16 -
(If you've already pledged - THANK YOU!)
Together we're making this book a reality. YA-YA!!



  1. Hi there,
    I think this will be one of the greatest cook books ever!! Thank you so much for making this, it joins my two loves of Gilmore girls and cooking!! I can't wait to own one! I wish you best of success with the creating of it! A big thank you from all the Gilmore girls fan!

  2. As a huge Gilmore fan I would love tips on how to make a golf ball cake!!

  3. I worked a kitchen in Woodridge, IL which utilized a pineapple mango chutney over ahi tuna tacos. Never occurred to me to ask Chef if he was a Gilmore...but I made myself the go to guy for making that chutney!

    Thank you for this book...I can't wait to make and taste all of it!
