Addictive Recipes from a Self-Taught Baker


Today I hold Sally’s Candy Addiction finished manuscript.


My heart is racing, my fingers are shaking, and I’m full of emotion as I type. This has been the tallest mountain I’ve ever hiked, the longest race I’ve ever ran, the most challenging test I’ve ever taken, and the biggest project I’ve ever completed.

6 months. 200 pages. 49,000 words. 4,000 photos edited down to 300. 131 test recipes shrank down to 75 winners. And those were tested too.
