Building a Better Brownie: "The Pig & Me"




One woman's tale of sweetness and life.Most books about business are a bit of a snooze - informative, sure, but certainly not page-turners. "The Pig & Me" by Wolfebobo resident Lindsay Frucci is a rare exception to that.Frucci shows she can not just create a successful business, literally from scratch, but can also tell the story of it with exceptional, can't-put-the-book-down writing.She traces her product - No Pudge! fat-free brownies - from its invention in her kitchen to the sale of the company years later for an undisclosed amount of money (but no doubt lots).A happy ending, until you read the epilogue. There you find a heartbreaking turn of events for Frucci and her family - or we should say another one.We know of the others because Frucci throughout the book candidly shares the difficulties - both financial and medical - the family faced during the time she built the business.Frucci, though, takes on both her professional and personal challenges with inspiring courage and creativity. You can - and definitely should - get the book on Amazon.com and at select independent book stores.
