If cooking a Thanksgiving feast wasn’t enough, I’ve been busy in the kitchen for the past few days testing recipes for the amazing cookbook author and food photographer, Lara Ferroni. I’m certainly not complaining though!  It’s been really fun and I’m excited to tell you all about it.

If you’re not familiar with Lara she’s an extremely talented food photographer and accomplished cookbook author.  She’s now working on her next cookbook that features delicious sweet and salty treats but without all the junk (ie ingredients you can’t pronounce). Definitely my style of cooking!  Lara asked me to test recipes for her peanut butter stuffed pretzel balls and chocolate caramel cookie sticks. Considering I’m both a peanut butter and caramel addict, I was thrilled I got to try these recipes.

Unfortunately I’m only here to tempt you with Lara’s yummy treats- the recipes can’t be released quite yet.  But what I can tell you is that you should most definitely snag this cookbook once it’s available next fall! From these two recipes alone I know her book will secure a spot on my cookbook shelf.  Thanks for allowing me to help, Lara!

  1. They look yummy, Clara! Anything with chocolate interests me. I eat a little every day.

  2. Those PB pretzel balls look downright addictive-maybe it’s a good thing that I can’t rush into the kitchen and whip up a batch right now. Kudos to you for scoring a great opportunity. I love Lara’s pictures. Nice to know she’s expanding her doughnut empire. Yum!

  3. Karen: Glad to hear I’m not the only one with a such a weakness for sweets!

    Modern Cupcake; Thank you!

    Bob Vivant: Aren’t her pictures gorgeous? And yes, the pretzels are very addictive!
