CANDY BARS BROOKLYN


2 weeks before the shoot, we learned Chronicle chose a photograper in Brooklyn in mid-May at a time I would be teaching in LA and my partner at a book event in Oklahoma.  Who would watch over the shoot and make sure the baby candy bars were properly cared for??  Thank you, Chronicle Books, Inc., for taking good care of them.

Making Over CANDY BAR MAKEOVERS


 Look!  I'm editing my candy bar cookbook!  I've been going for 3 days and I'm on page 120.  40 more to go - need more coffee.
