Carroll Pellegrinelli is a Wall Street Journal bestselling author.

She has written two cookbooks, "Starter Sourdough - The Step by Step Guide to Sourdough Starters" and "The Easy Christmas Cookie Cookbook". Her third cookbook "Bread Machine Sourdough Cookbook" will be out in late November of 2021. She also wrote a travel/adventure cookbook called “Travel with the Lee Girls as They Shop and Eat Their Way Through the South – New Orleans”.

Her second cookbook "The Easy Christmas Cookie Cookbook" has over 60 recipes just perfect for holiday baking. Not only is this a good cookbook to have for yourself, it makes for the timeless Christmas gift.

“Starter Sourdough - The Step by Step Guide to Sourdough Starters”, Carroll’s first full cookbook, was on The Wall Street Journal's bestseller list. It was written to help people understand that Sourdough bread isn’t hard to make; it just takes advance planning. It has sold nearly 14,000 copies.

Her first book “Travel with the Lee Girls as They Shop and Eat Their Way Through the South – New Orleans” combines her three loves. The book is part personal travel travelogue, part guidebook and part cookbook featuring some of the area’s iconic recipes.

Besides God and her family, Carroll has three big loves: baking, travel and writing. As soon as she could reach the counter, her mother taught her how to cream her butters and sugars. In later years, her father took up baking bread as a way to deal with work-related frustrations. He shared what he learned with Carroll. This passion for baking lead her to a 20-year job as the Desserts and Baking Editor for, which was owned by The New York Times. She created over a thousand pieces of content such as recipes, articles and how-to baking features online. Even though no longer exists, some of her content can be found via The Spruce Eats website.

While her parents were imparting their zeal for baking, her grandmother introduced her to another passion – the exciting world of travel. Carroll’s grandmother took her on her first cruise at age 9. Since then she’s been on at least another 25 more. She’s traveled the world on the sea and via land on her own, and for two decades as a travel agent and tour guide.

Carroll discovered her love for writing by accident. She went back to college to finish her bachelor’s degree. There was a special program that afforded working adults the ability to complete two years of college in just one year. The third year was completed by writing life experience essays and the final year was accomplished by attending weekly classes and writing term papers. Carroll discovered her knack for writing when she had to write a 10-page paper once a week for nearly a year.
