Behind the Scenes

Meet Peter, my oh-so-supportive, not to mention, handsome hubby :) 

He's my sous-chef, dish washer, extra-camera-man-when-my-hands-are-covered-in-food, and most importantly, my taste-tester and toughest critic. I know if I get the silent nod during his first bite, the recipe most likely passes “The Test” and means it’s safe to share with you.

Meet my editor, Ben Goodridge!

Ben graduated from USM with a B.A. in English. He's been kind enough to join me in my lovely blog experiment and helps to make me sound fancy.

Some FAQs

What camera do you use?

  • Currently, I have only been using my iPhone, but due to the amount of flour, cheese, oil, spices, you catch my drift, collecting in the crevices, I’ve gradually been making some camera-choice adjustments.  We recently purchased a Canon PowerShot SX130 IS for our honeymoon in Puerto Rico.   It doesn’t make me look like a professional photographer when I am using the point-and-shoot lil guy but it’s better than my phone, which recently survived a tumble into a Tupperware full of water and bean sprouts.

Can I use your pictures?

  • All of my photos and recipes are copyrighted under LaraThalice.  I take my own photos, as well as do all editing work, and would prefer the photographs remain at only.

Can I post your recipe on my site?
  • Yes!  As long as you add a link back to my original post, giving credit where credit is due, that is fine by me!

If you have any questions or comments, feel free to reach me at:  I would love to hear from you!
