Recently one of my favorite photographers, Matt Armendariz, came out with a cookbook. I freaking love his blog, his photographs inspire and motivate me, and he’s the coolest guy in the LBC. So when I found out “On a Stick!” was his beloved first book, I knew that I had to have my very own copy. I first caught a glimpse at the book when I attended Matt’s photography workshop a couple months ago, and I have been waiting patiently for my own copy.
Everyone knows that I love to entertain and host parties, and there were countless recipes that I had seen that I had been dying to make – everything from appetizers, drinks, sweet and savory things on a stick. It’s the typical and quirky things that you love on a stick or you should put on a stick because it’s so much easier to eat. Everything from the typical corndog, chicken and waffles (Roscoes’ fans), sangria on a stick and caprese on a stick. I fell in love with this recipe instantly because it was a sweet reminder of my recent Italian vacation. Plus, it was so simple and easy to put together when attending or throwing a potluck or summer party.
Get your copy today, and have fun eating your food on a stick.
