What I Do When I’m Not Here

Last week it was go to Ashland, OR and see plays. Which meant I never quite got back into the schedule of posting so the recipe for apple pie bites never made it to cyberspace. So, here it is. I got the recipe from Pinterest–where I spend altogether too much time.

Apple Pie Bites

Using 1 tube crescent rolls, unroll the triangles and place 1 slice of apple for each triangle. Mix 1 tblsp. sugar, 1/4 tsp. nutmeg, 1/8 tsp. cloves, 1/2 tsp. cinnamon (or any combination you like of those spices). Sprinkle the mixture over the apples. Roll up the triangles and bake for 10-12 minutes at 350 degrees.

So, that wraps up last week. On to this week:

You all know I write romances, don’t you? You don’t? Huh. I was pretty sure I talked about that ages ago. Anyway, during my waking hours I’m pretty much obsessed with writing, plotting, talking about or editing romance novels. Oh, and I also talk to my characters. Which is quite pleasant if it involves a cute guy with big brown eyes and shoulders to die for.

But that’s a whole other blog.

One of the things that features prominently in my books is food. Either or both of my main characters loves to cook. And there’s always a meal or two that figures in the development of the relationship because I think cooking for someone you care for is such a loving thing to do.

In the most recent book, Jake cooks coq au vin for the woman he’s trying to impress. It works. (Of course, she was already falling for him before he made dinner for her.) And he seals the deal with mushroom soup on a cold and rainy Portland day. I’ll get to that recipe on Friday.
