The last few weeks: Magnolia Network, 2022 cookbooks, giveaways, previews and more

Happy 2022! This week’s roundup will share posts and information since our last roundup on December 17th.

The Magnolia Network announced that the popular Waco couple, Chip and Joanna Gaines, will officially rebrand the DIY television network on Jan. 5. Viewers will be able to “experience everything Magnolia” in one place. The great news about this is that now we can watch episodes of Zoë Bakes and other shows such as Erin French’s The Lost Kitchen without paying for another streaming service. Check your local cable listings – I already have my DVR set.

I realize the dust hasn’t settled on 2021 but I am so excited for the cookbooks being released in this year. Recently, I updated our preview post with books coming from Erin Jeanne McDowell Savory Baking (Harvest, an imprint of Harper Collins/Mariner Books will be releasing Erin’s book as well as others); Food52 Food52 Simply Genius, Samantha & Samuel Clark Moro Easy, Edd Kimber Small Batch Bakes, Karen Martini Cook: Your Friend in the Kitchen, Ixta Belfrage (of Ottolenghi fame) Mezcla: Recipes to Excite, Naomi Duguid The Joy of Salt, Esteban Castillo Chicano Bakes, Maori Murota Cuisine Japonaise, Nicole Presley Flantastic!: Mexican Desserts, Odette Williams Simple Pasta and Danny Bowein Mission Vegan. I hope that this year will be a smoother one for publishers and authors. The last two years were rough with so many book publication dates changing.
