Processed with VSCOcam with m3 presetHi, I’m Laura and welcome to Tutti Dolci (Italian for “all sweets”). I started Tutti Dolci in late 2010 as a space to record my baking experiments. Over countless bowls of butter and sugar, this space has grown into a creative outlet that combines my passions for baking, writing, and photography.

Baking philosophy: I bake seasonally and use ingredients from local sources whenever possible. My recipes are often original creations with reasonable nutritional profiles that don’t sacrifice fabulous flavor. Meyer lemons and farm stand berries are among my favorite ingredients; I also adore anything chocolate (with salt!) and I’ve been known to put brown butter in everything (especially cookies).

Photo/recipe use: Please review my photo and recipe policy.

Freelance inquiries: I’d love to work with you! I offer recipe development, food photography and more. My blog is my portfolio.

5 Things You May Not Know About Me

1. I absolutely do eat dessert every day (in moderation). I balance out the sweets with healthy plant-based meals and am active every day (running is my favorite!).

2. I recently welcomed home a Ragdoll kitten named Latte and I’ve been utterly smitten since day one.

3. When I’m not working (or procrastinating!), I can be found on Instagram or Pinterest – I’m officially addicted to both!

4. The Great Gatsby is my favorite novel and I reread it once a year.

5. I’m a California native but when I win the lottery, my sights are set on Italy!
