Hot Autumn Nights #BlogHop

Friday, November 29th, 2013

Sexy athletic body

Grand Prize

$70 Barnes & Noble or Amazon Gift Card, winners choice.

 “What’s your idea of a hot autumn night?”

For me, a wonderful way to spend an autumn night is quiet time in our hot tub. The best time of course, is in the fall, though I like the winter too. We have ours secluded in a fenced off garden area of our yard. It’s very private. Small white lights accent one portion of the enclosure. Scented salts, a nice glass of wine, with soft music playing adds to the entire atmosphere. The sky above is clear, the stars are bright. We can pick out both the Big Dipper and Little Dipper easily. If we happen to have a few flakes of snow fall on our nose, all the better. The company is my loving hubby.  It’s quiet, it’s serene, it’s very romantic.


Leave a comment. Tell me your idea of a hot autumn night.

(don’t forget to leave your name and email)

and I’ll send you an e-copy of my debut release from last January, Worth the Risk.  And watch for my upcoming release, available January 17, 2014, Friends with Benefits.  If you have time, stop in during the month of December when I’ll be doing something special in advance of my release.

NOW, DON’T FORGET… if you want a chance at the GRAND PRIZE …

IMG-20111223-00002 - 1I just love the holiday season. I love the lights, the music and the special movies on T.V. Christmas is just around the corner.  I love the excitement in the air. I love the idea of buying gifts for friends and family. Though I don’t enjoy wrapping them! LOL.

Traditions are my thing at this time of year.  And one in particular is all those special treats we make. One of my favorite recipes that I do every year is my whipped shortbread. But I’ve already shared that particular recipe on my site.  They are melt in your mouth delicious.  Check here for those buttery morsels.

So, I decided to share another of my favorites. One of my special traditions at our holiday breakfast table.  I go all out – it’s a feast in of itself. A number of years back I discovered a recipe for an Oven Apple Pancake. You can find it in Company’s Coming for Christmas by Jean Paré. © 1996 by The Recipe Factory Inc.  An oh, man, is it yummy.

Open Apple Pancake

Serve with maple syrup

  • ¼ cup of butter or hard margarine

  • 1/3 cup  brown sugar, packed
  • Light sprinkle of ground cinnamon
  • 2 apples, peeled, cored and sliced in wedges ¼ or 6mm thick
  • 3 large eggs
  • ¾ cup of milk
  • ½ tsp of salt
  • ¾ cup all-purpose flour
  1. Melt butter in 9 inch pie plate in 425°F oven
  2. Stir brown sugar into melted butter. Sprinkle with cinnamon.
  3. Overlap apples in a single layer over top of mixture and then cook in oven for 10 minutes.
  4. Beat eggs with a spoon in a bowl.  Add milk, salt and flour.  Stir to moisten. Remove large lumps but don’t try to smooth out all the small lumps.
  5. Pour over apples.
  6. Return to oven and bake for 20 to 25 minutes.   It will rise up, but lower back down when you removed it from the oven.
  7. Cut into wedges and serve hot. Don’t forget the syrup 🙂

It’s great warmed up later too!

My Giveaway!

Now, I’m going to give away  an e-copy of my debut release that came out almost one year ago. Worth the Risk is a reunion story with a sad history behind why Molly and Tanner split up so long ago.  Ten years later, they’re reunited, but is the torch they still carry for each other enough to reignite their love? Or, will secrets from the past continue to keep them apart?

Do you have a special treat or tradition that is must every holiday season? Just leave a comment and tell me. But don’t forget to leave your name and email.
