Happy Mother's Day!!! ~Free Recipe

Friday, May 11, 2012

(If you're here for the Giveaway Hops, please scroll down to the next two posts.)

Update: A small change in plans... Sophia's Cookbook has been uploaded and is now available for purchase. (Click on the book cover below to buy it now!) Sorry, but I missed the schedule for the free promo on Fateful. Prom for my senior go in the way! Check back soon, the free promo of Fateful will be rescheduled for some time later this week. ;)

For this Mother's Day, I'm announcing the release of Sophia's Cookbook for Mortals for only .99 cents on Amazon!

In Fateful you get to know a vampire named Sophia. She absolutely loves to cook for her mortal friends and that's what this cookbook is all about. This book contains actual recipes that tie into the series and show you how she slimes the pretty apron she wears. This cookbook includes a variety of recipes, including: finger foods, teatime treats, fairy-influenced fair, and some of Ethan and Danielle's favorites, such as Ethan's triple-layer chocolate cake. Here is one free recipe from the book: (Enjoy!)

Magic Fairy Juice

This is very much like the juice the fairies gave to Ethan and Danielle to heal them—minus the magic, of course.
You’ll need:
8 tablespoons lime juice (bottled or about 4 limes, juiced)
3/4 cups to 1 cup superfine sugar (or granulated)
8 tablespoons sweetened condensed milk
6 cups water
1/2 pint fresh strawberries, chopped
1/2 pint fresh raspberries

Mix water with sugar. Stir to dissolve sugar, and then chill. Once it’s chilled, add the lime juice to the water and sugar mixture, then add the sweetened condensed milk. Lightly mash the strawberries and raspberries. In each glass, add ice, 1-2 spoonfuls of berries, and then limeade. Serve immediately over ice. Hopefully you won’t suffer too many side effects from the fairy magic.

If you happen to be one of the lucky women getting a Kindle for Mother's Day, then please snatch up your .99 cent cookbook!  (If you don't have a Kindle, then you can still enjoy this cookbook! Amazon has many free apps to help you out with that. For example, if you have a PC in your kitchen, then you could simply download the PC app and pull the recipes up that way.) If you'd rather have your cookbooks in print, then watch for the release of the spiral-bound version, which will be out as soon as I approve the proof copy from the publisher.
