When a personal bankruptcy robbed her family of financial security, Lindsay Frucci decided the way back to marital and family bliss was to start a business that would make gobs of money. Out of the mantra “there must be something I can do” and a passion for fat-laden, fudgy brownies that made it hard to zip her jeans, an idea was born: healthy brownies for the masses. In a leap of faith borne on the wings of innocence and naiveté, she founded No Pudge! Foods, Inc., and began an epic journey of unexpected personal growth and discovery. Frucci owned No Pudge! for ten years, and when she sold it, her Fat Free Fudge Brownie Mixes were sold in every major grocery chain in the United States. The fairy tale is an enviable, business success story. The reality is the story of a woman who was raised hearing “you can’t” and found, to her surprise and great satisfaction, she could – and then some.

About the Author:

Lindsay Frucci founded No Pudge! Foods in 1995 and served as Chief Cook and Bottle Washer for ten years. She, her husband and their pound-puppy Zoe, happily divide their time between Wolfeboro, New Hampshire and Brooklyn, New York. This is her first book.

Review:

"A quick-witted, engrossing read, Frucci’s memoir bubbles with can-do, feminist moxie and the simple tenet that a great idea will never fail you." -Kirkus Reviews

"I never knew I liked memoirs until I picked up Lindsay Frucci’s The Pig and Me... Chock-full of humor, witty dialogue and insightful prose, this book is very well written and full of surprises – even until the very last page! Lindsay is a very talented writer, and I hope to see more books by her in the future." -Chick Lit Cafe

"Most books about business are a bit of a snooze - informative, sure, but certainly not page-turners. "The Pig & Me" by Wolfeboro 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..." -New Hampshire Magazine, October 2011

"If Lindsay Frucci is half the motivational speaker she is as a motivational writer, she should be taking her talk nationwide and firing up would-be entrepreneurs across America! ...this memoir (is) special, unique and worth reading." -Chick Lit Central

"[Lindsay] had a vision and would not let anything stop her, no matter how many times she was told “No”. If you want to read a good uplifting book without all the calories than pick up a copy of The Pig and Me!" -Cheryl's Book Nook
