A Dragon’s Treasure

Coming June 16, 2017

A dragon’s most desired treasure is his mate, but what if she didn’t want to be?

A Dragon's Treasure_teaser

Kai has been hunting for his mate for a very long time. Drawn to a singular place on earth, filled with treasures, he still seeks the greatest treasure of them all. His mate.

Fleeing danger, Connie runs into the arms of destiny, but she has plans already, and a Dragon mate is not on the agenda.

Kai has waited centuries for Connie, and he will claim his mate. Patience may not be a Dragon’s virtue, but he always gets his treasure.

Sparks fly in this humorous erotic tale of mating and mayhem.

A Dragon’s Treasure goes up for pre order on June 2 for .99. On release day the price goes up to $2.99.

I’ll post all the links when available. In the meantime, while I work on getting it on retailers I’m trying to figure out how to do the dragon link jewelry, gloves and purses. It’s all Pinterests fault! They keep teasing me with pins!

But I can’t knit! So I’m going to have to figure out a way. I mean, check this out! How can I not?

Changing things

IStealing Hope‘m happy and sad to say that Stealing Hope will be coming down from Amazon.

But only temporarily! It is supposed to be down effective tomorrow. I’ll be going over it to fix a couple of errors and when it goes back up, it will go up on all ebook retailers! I’ll also be changing the price and it will be changing to $2.99.

So, a happy and sad thing!

I was trying to do some dehydrating this fall, but sad to say I didn’t manage any. I did manage to have a friend show me how to can salsa! Boy was it good! I’m hoping I can do more this coming growing season. Which isn’t all that long in Wisconsin!

One of the things I was looking at was food sealers. I still haven’t bought one. I’m not sure which one would work best. Not to mention food preservation bags. I would prefer bags that work with the food sealer. There are so many out there and it gets confusing. I’m leaning toward the Food Saver food sealer.

Any recommendations? I’d love a bit of advice!

After the Turkey…

Really after the turkey is cooked and eaten, what do you do with the leftovers? There has to be leftovers as that is the best part of a turkey dinner!

I do a couple of recipes. But here is my family’s favorite, turkey enchiladas.

Ingredients:

TURKEY! (shredded or small pieces)

Enchilada Sauce (1 can)

Burrito sized tortillas

Black Olives (diced or sliced)

Chopped Onions (1/2 cup) (optional – You can omit this ingredient if you prefer)

Shredded Cheese (Mexican blend)

Sour Cream (optional)

Makes approximately 1 dozen.

Other supplies:

9 x 13 pan, frying pan, tongs, bowl for onions, and foil.  I work out of the cans/bags for everything else. Makes for less cleanup.

I don’t make the enchilada sauce myself. I’m happy to buy the canned variety. Not the normal size one, but the larger cans. The black olives, I usually buy a small can of diced olives. Sliced worked equally as well. I use a pre shredded cheese, too.

I’m all about making it easy, especially after having made a huge meal!

You can do it all from scratch if you prefer, so have everything chopped and ready to go before turning on your frying pan. I prefer my cast iron skillet, but that is a personal choice.

Have a 9 x 13 pan available and ready on the counter. Heat up your frying pan and have your tongs ready.

Pour your enchilada sauce into the frying pan. Heat it up to a simmer. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

Dip a tortilla in the sauce. This is where you’ll need the tongs! The sauce gets hot. I use my fingers until I can’t anymore, then the tongs. Make sure the tortilla is covered on both sides. It is just a quick dip.

Put the tortilla flat in the 9 x 13 pan. In the center, add turkey, black olives, onions and a bit of cheese. Roll, move to the end of the pan.

Repeat until pan is full and enchiladas are snug against each other. I can usually put a dozen in a pan.

Drizzle the left over enchilada sauce over the 9 x 13 pan and sprinkle cheese and black olives over it.

Cover with foil. Pop it into the preheated oven.

Bake for 45 minutes at 350 degrees. Basically, you’re cooking all the ingredients together so it is one yummy mouth melting taste. Serve with sour cream on top when ready to eat.

Growing easy Garlic

Usually I find garlic rolling around in the bottom of my refrigerator in the vegetable tray. I’ll pull off a clove and I swear it splits and hides right then and there.

It’s easy enough to grow your own. Plant it pointy side up in dirt. Keep it damp and watch it sprout. 5-6 leaves sprouting lets you know it’s done. It can be grown in the bottom of the vegetable tray but I really don’t recommend that!

Garlic helps keep you  healthy, assists in cholesterol processing and helps reduce the risk of heart disease. It’s packed with vitamins.

The leaves and flowers can be eaten, but I haven’t tried those yet.

Not to mention, it is an awesome flavor booster with meat. Beef being my favorite! And fried potatoes wouldn’t be the same without it!

Pinterest has lots of pictures and instructions! It’s easy enough to grow indoors without having to dig in the dirt, not to mention you can then grow it all year round.garlic

Here is a Pinterest link to check it out. https://www.pinterest.com/pin/198580664796288299/
