    I swear to God I’ll pay extra for an autographed copy. I’ll bet others will as well (hint, hint!)

    BTW, please note my new blog location so you can change the link in your blogroll.

    Gawd! This must be so exciting for you….Pictures look amazing and so does the chef ;-)

  19. SJS — 2/11/09 @ 11:18 pm

    Aww, there’s no talking in the video. Bummer! I was curious to hear the voice that goes with your sense of humor.

  20. How exciting! Good luck.

  21. Sowjanya — 2/12/09 @ 2:28 am

    Awesome. Can’t wait :)

    Note to self : Please don’t come into Jaden’s blog after 8 PM. Bad for the waist line ;)

  22. finsbigfan — 2/12/09 @ 9:25 am

    Damn!!!!! You are gonna make me do something I swore I would not do!!!! BUY a cookbook. Seriously, haven’t bought one in years. That’s what the web is for, or so I thought. Can’t wait to cook the book. Loved the promo and the pics.

  23. TIna — 2/12/09 @ 11:11 am

    Absolutely phenomenal photography! My camera and I are coming to Florida next week; how about some food photography lessons?

    Seriously, I can’t wait to see the cookbook. I know it’s going to be fantastic!

  24. Maya — 2/12/09 @ 12:05 pm

    Good luck Jaden!

  25. Single Guy Chef — 2/12/09 @ 3:25 pm

    Cool video! Are you doing the photography in your book too! I hope so (and I hope you get paid double!) Hope you have a book tour to San Francisco when your book comes out. I’ll be first in line!!

  26. Mike — 2/12/09 @ 5:30 pm

    So ready to see the end result. I’m throwing a pre-congratulations out there

  27. Judy in SATX — 2/12/09 @ 7:03 pm

    Great video! I posted it to my FB – so when will you be by to fluff and fold?

    I second the request that you sell autographed copies!

  28. Deb — 2/12/09 @ 10:55 pm

    Love the tiara! Cool pix of your mom, kidvid and hub too! Great audio and fast pace of the music/vid makes me think “snappy cooking with delish results”! You go girl! I’d be up for a signed copy myself but only if you can mail it! I hope you sell tons of copies to food lovers everywhere!

  29. Kristin — 2/13/09 @ 1:30 pm

    Do we really have to wait until Fall ’09? That’s so far away.

  30. Nila Rosa — 2/13/09 @ 8:23 pm

    Awesome video. Love it

    So exciting! I just made your Thai Coffee Ice Cream a few days ago as part of our fancy Valentine’s dessert. It’s our favorite ice cream ever :)

  40. susan g — 2/22/09 @ 12:10 pm

    We should be doing your laundry! We loved being in the test group and still cook Steamy. I’m in the book line…

  41. Jude — 2/28/09 @ 10:07 am

    Great video… I can’t wait to check your cookbook out! Count me in for a pre order.

  42. audrey — 3/3/09 @ 6:29 pm


    out of topic…

    i wish you can include in your blog some recipes that can go into kids’ lunchboxes/snack boxes. :) or recipes that have the kids’ thumbs up sign. a special category on “food kids would most likely enjoy”, perhaps?
    better yet, i really do wish you can come up with a recipe book about foods kids will love!

    looking forward to your steamy kitchen cookbook!
