>She’s back … and she brought cookies. Nearly two years after her infamous reality show ended, megamom Kate Gosselin, 38, has announced that she’s releasing a cookbook: Love Is in the Mix, featuring recipes inspired by her sextuplets and twins.

Wasn’t this book due years ago?

Yeah, and then a few things happened! It was a crazy time during my split (from ex Jon Gosselin), and I was so distracted then. Now I’ve spent so much time in my kitchen over the past two years that I’ve been able to refine the recipes and make them so much better.

With eight kids you must live in your kitchen …

Most days I feel like my bedroom is a waste of square footage because I consider my kitchen “my room.” And thank goodness, because from there I can hear everything that’s going on and break up fights.

Other than a recent episode of Wife Swap, this book cover will be the first time many people will be seeing your kids so grown up.

Can you believe I’m going to have two teens on my hands this year? It goes so fast, it’s crazy. That picture of us has turned out to be one of my favorite photos ever. We did it with a skeleton crew: I did everyone’s hair and makeup. We all just smushed together and this great thing came out as a result!
