Heiress to the Flame

HEIRESS TO THE FLAME


Roxie Sanders has dodged a few dangerous situations dating back to her teen years. After being rescued from certain death, she becomes a private investigator as a way of helping others and paying her blessings forward.

Nelson Crawford, part of the PI team who helps her escape a harmful situation, serves as her role model. The two form an immediate bond partnering on many cases and along the way, a flicker of attraction ignites between them, refusing to be snuffed out no matter how hard Roxie tries.

Shadows from Roxie’s past pop up to haunt her and when a case involving a kidnapped child takes them to the place where all her troubles began, her hometown of Osyka, Mississippi, she finds that trouble waiting for her. When Nelson is kidnapped, Roxie can no longer deny her feelings for the man and will stop at nothing to gain his freedom, even awakening the power of the flame sleeping within her.

Will her efforts pay off or will her dreams go up in smoke?

Spring Fever

 I have been hit hard by the Spring Fever bug over the last month or so.  My front porch is my favorite spot and I could sit and look at my plants or baby them all day and that's just about how I spent my day.


Here are a few pics from my prized collection. Yes, succulents are my new obsession. 



I used a red bowl as a planter here that made the red in the leaves pop.

Fairies! Imagine that!

Icebox Fruitcake

Fruitcake. Yay or nay?

Now, before you go turning up your nose at the thought of fruitcake, take a look at a very old recipe. It's my grandmother's no-bake fruitcake. It's a Christmas favorite around my house and it's delicious.

Ingredients

  • One box (approx. 12 oz.) of vanilla wafers
  • One pound of candied cherries (red and/or green)
  • One can (approx. 14 oz.) sweetened condensed milk (not evaporated milk)
  • One cup raisins
  • One cup coconut
  • One cup pecans
Directions
  1. Finely crush vanilla wafers. A food processor works great!
  2. In a large bowl, add the vanilla wafers, sweetened condensed milk.
  3. Hand mix until wafers are moistened.
  4. Add remaining ingredients.
  5. Mix well by hand.
  6. Press mixture into a buttered tube pan.
  7. Cover
  8. Refrigerate overnight, until firm.
Keep it refrigerated, as it will spoil. This isn't your traditional fruitcake. It's so, so much better!

The Weather and other Changes

As the seasons change, so do our tastes and cravings for our favorite foods. Tonight we are waiting for hurricane Zeta to make land fall in Louisiana and head North through our area. 

We're told to expect rain . . . a lot of rain along high winds but after the hurricane remnants move out, the temps are supposed to drop and I am already searching for soup recipes.

I'm thinking chicken.

What's your favorite soup?

Working from home

My situation as a result of the current world crisis is doing my day job from my kitchen table and I must say . . . it works for me! Oh, but I do have help. Ivy's just taking care of her nails before we get started.
