|Chef Carla Hall's NEW delicious home-baked goods are tea time ready!|
Carla’s Comfort Food: Favorite Dishes from Around the World will be published March 25, 2014, and her first cookbook, Cooking with Love: Comfort Food That Hugs You, was published in November 2012 and recently re-released in paperback.
Carla attended L' Academie de Cuisine in Maryland and finished her culinary training as a sous chef at Henley Park Hotel in Washington, D.C. As a wonderful consultant, I saw Carla on Extreme Makeover Weight Loss Edition with Chris and Heidi Powell. She made a lower fat alternative to Southern Fried Chicken with a recipe for oven-baked but crispy version. I also enjoy trying lower fat yet equally delicious recipes such as my Applewood Smoke Rub Rotisserie Chicken!

I completely agree with her philosophy. Comfort food can be wholesome, nutritious and delicious.

These Chocolate Hazelnut Praline Petite Cookies below are really crunchy-good and fun! I'm serving them in ice cream dishes but they can also top your ice cream or pudding desserts.
