hi! click the tabs above to see some of my work!
My name is Laura. Paso Robles wine country, California is where I call home, although I spent my childhood in New England and went to college in New Jersey.
My dad was a chef in his day, and so by default I began cooking at a very young age. My whole life, cooking and baking has been a way for me to unwind, to entertain, and to learn. My blog documents my cooking adventures – traditional family recipes, experimenting with brand-new foods I find at farmer’s markets and local specialty shops, and exploring new wines and the foods that pair with them.
What you should know:
Unless otherwise noted, all the photos on this site were shot by Laura Zolnoski. Please do not use them on your site or elsewhere without my permission, proper credit, and a link back to Sweet Life Laur. The same goes for the recipes – they’re original, written by me unless I say otherwise. I love to share, but I do not love people who steal!
Please feel free to leave comments with questions, suggestions, or whatever you like – I love feedback!
Lastly, for your reading pleasure, there is an option to have my recipes e-mailed to you; you can also add my site to your RSS feed, follow me on Twitter, or recommend Sweet Life Laur to your favorite sites – all these buttons are on the right sidebar.
