Halo Publishing Spotlights The Chow Down by Lynn April


If you love snacking, and let’s face it, who doesn’t, you’ll want to rush out and get a copy of the latest cookbook available from Halo Publishing International, “The Chow Down” by Lynn April.

Lynn is perhaps best known as The Cake Lady, a well-deserved moniker from her days as the owner of Lucky Duck Cakes, located in her hometown of West Chester, PA. Lynn also writes the popular blog FreshAprilFlours.com and has been enjoying experimenting in the kitchen since her early 20s where she found the process of baking from scratch to be “therapeutic, stimulating, and science-y.”

The inspiration for her latest book “The Chow Down” came from a desire to create an activity book that would be family-friendly.

“I wanted a cookbook the whole family can do together. I didn’t want a cookbook that makes baking unenjoyable or complicated. I’m all about families gathering in the kitchen and making memories there,” says Lynn.

In “The Chow Down” Lynn shares some of her favorite puppy chow recipes she loves to make at home and bring with her to parties and gatherings. Lynn’s favorite puppy chow flavor, Piña Colada, is on page 25.the chow down

I have to be honest, I have found Lynn April’s cookbook to be a great way to get families involved in making fun treats together for entertaining, gifting or simply enjoying as a weekday night treat. Bonus – each one is tastier than the last!

One of the things I like about the recipes in The Chow Down” is that they are flexible according to your family’s likes and dislikes. So if you aren’t a fan of raisins, never fear, you’ll still find a bunch of puppy chow recipes that will make your family “bark” for joy. Make no mistake; these are people chow recipes that you will love.
