Tasty Tuesday -- Captain Morgan’s Spiced Butter Rum Pound Cake


Captain Morgan’s Spiced Butter Rum Pound Cake
1 & 1/2 cup chopped nuts (Pecans, Almonds, or Walnuts)
1 & 1/2 cup raisins, cranberries, or other dried fruits
Cover dried fruit in boiling water, let stand 5 minutes or until plump, drain.

Dry Mix:
2 & 1/2 cups flour (Almond Meal or Coconut flour will work)
1 pkg vanilla pudding mix
2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt

Cream Mix:
1 & 2/3 cups brown sugar, firmly packed (Substitute Brown Sugar Splenda)
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
4 eggs
1/2 cup Captain Morgan’s Spiced Rum

Preheat oven to 325°F. Grease and lightly flour a 10 inch Bundt pan. Sprinkle half the nuts over the bottom of pan.

Mix together dry ingredients in a hand mixing bowl.

Cream together sugar and butter, then stir in the dark rum in a large mixer bowl; beat on low while adding eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add remaining nuts and raisins (drained). Mix thoroughly.

Gradually add in dry mix. Continue beating on medium for 2 to 3 minutes.

Bake for 55 minutes at 325°F or until done. Remove cake from oven and let cool for 5 minutes, then run a knife along edges of pan if necessary, to free the cake from the sides. Turn out onto a wire rack to cool.

Glaze:
1/4 cup water
1/4 cup confectioners sugar
1/4 pound butter (Margarine contains too much water!)
1/4 cup Captain Morgan’s Spiced Rum
Melt butter in saucepan. Add water and sugar, stirring constantly. Remove from heat; cool slightly and then stir in rum. Set the cake in something like a large pie pan and  drizzle glaze over cake. Soak cake thoroughly, adding a small amount at a time. Dust finished cake with confectioners sugar (or Splenda) so it looks like a light snowfall.

Interview with Banning Hayes from Red Velvet Christmas: Merry Mate by B.J. McCall

What kind of job do you have?

A year ago, I inherited a rundown cattle ranch. The land sits at the base of Elk Mountain. I love the place and the life suits me. I plan to grow old here.

Who is your love interest?

When I moved to Elk Mountain, all I thought about was the fixing up the ranch. I never expected to find love or fall for a she-wolf. The pack elders aren’t too happy about it, but Sierra is the one for me.

Tell us about your first kiss with Sierra.

It happened at the annual Elk Mountain Christmas cookout. I’ve wanted to kiss Sierra since the first time I’d laid eyes on her, but the werewolves of Elk Mountain tend to stick to themselves when it comes to dating and mating. Sierra asked me to try on this Santa hat. I’m partial to my own hat, but I wasn’t about to disappoint her. She put the red hat on my head and when I looked at her I couldn’t resist. We weren’t on a date. It sorta just happened. Can’t say I regret it.
Odd thing is, I can’t get the hat off. It’s stuck on my head.

Do you have any pets?

I have a dog, Lucy. She’s good with the cattle but not with werewolves. Lucy’s never growled at Sierra so I’m hoping they’ll become friends.

Are you a night person or a morning person?

I’m a rancher. I have my first cup of coffee before sunrise and I’m in the saddle by first light. By sunset, I’ve put in a long day. Werewolves love running when the moon is high and Sierra is no exception. I’m not sure how we’ll work out this night person/morning person thing, but wolves need to howl at the moon and I want to make Sierra happy.

Would you share the blurb from your story?

Sure, and Merry Christmas.

A red velvet Santa’s hat that only fits one’s true love? Sierra doesn’t believe in magic, but she’s willing to give it a try and find her merry mate.

Banning is in love with Sierra, but the werewolves of Elk Mountain stick to their own kind. Banning would do anything to spend time with the beautiful she-wolf and he’s more than willing to try on a Santa’s hat to please her.

Humans are off limits, but what’s a wolf to do when the hat is a perfect fit?

Tasty Tuesday -- Homemade Hot Apple Cider

I adore warm beverages around the Holidays. They tickle my memories and relax my body. I'm going to share my Homemade Hot Apple Cider recipe with you. It's super easy to make and is guaranteed to keep a smile on your face. So curl up with a cup and read your favorite naughty tale.

Hot Apple Cider

  • 1 quart apple juice
  • 2 cups water
  • 5 cinnamon sticks
  • 4 cloves
  • 2 oranges, sliced (leave the peel on)
In large pot combine apple juice, water, cinnamon sticks, cloves, orange and bring to a boil
Reduce and simmer for 15 minutes or longer.

Note: I'll usually make larger batches and let it simmer for up to two hours to concentrate the flavor. Add more or less cloves as needed to really make this cider yours. If you don't have fresh oranges, you can substitute 8 oz of orange juice (with or without pulp).

Serve
Serves 4-6

If you'd like more recipes, check out Changeling's Tasty Tuesday selection and don't forget to pick up your copy of Red Velvet Christmas: Hidden Confections. There's a fantastic Better Than Sex Red Velvet Cupcake recipe in there you won't want to miss!

Interview with Coralee Bradley from Zombies Don’t Make Good Pets by Ashlynn Monroe

What kind of job do you have?
I’m the town vet in Davis Wisconsin.

Describe yourself in three words.
Sassy, Sexy, Splendid

Who is your love interest?
Sergeant Jordan Parks

Tell us about your first kiss with Jordan.
We were hiding in a closet because zombies were trying to eat us.  Jordan rocked my world.

List three things about Jordan that turn you on.
He’s brave.  He knows how to take out an infected horde of zombies with ease.  The man has a body of a greek God.

How did you and Jordan meet?
He was looking for medical supplies to treat his injury.

Do you have any pets?
No, but there’s one pissed off zombie cat waiting for me back at the clinic.

Whipped cream or Marshmallow?
Chocolate!

What is the craziest place you and Jordan have made love?
The closet in my clinic.

What's your idea of a romantic evening?
Any night that isn’t interrupted by a angry, brain eating mob of mindless zombies

A relaxing bath or a long, hot shower?
I’d take either if I could find some hot water.  No one ever warned me how much I’d miss the little comforts during the end of the world.

What's your favorite food?
Chocolate!

What's one thing about Jordan that pisses you off? 
He has military secrets and he won’t tell me what he knows about the government’s involvement with the outbreak. Oh, and he leaves the toilet seat up!

What do you like to wear to bed?
Nothing but my machete and a smile unless it’s cold.

Would you share the blurb from your story?
Coralee Bradley is proud to be the only veterinarian in the small town of Davis, Wisconsin. The picturesque community sits nestled in the river valley surrounded by lush wooded bluffs. Everything about Davis is tranquil except for one thing -- zombies. Coralee finds herself battling for her life against the same people she called neighbors seventy-two hours earlier.
Sergeant Jordan Parks invades Cora's private domain after his black ops zombie fighting unit is overrun by the horde. Injured, he seeks refuge with an angelic redhead. When she suddenly becomes a threat to their safety there's only one thing he can do -- make love to her.
Cora has never seen a better looking man, but it's just her luck to find him when the world is going crazy and certain death waits outside. Jordan soothes her fear using his buff body to bring her to heights of pleasure she'd never imagined possible. One night of end-of-the-world sex will never be enough, but can they survive long enough for another roll in the hay? Cora only knows one thing -- zombies sure as hell don't make good pets.

Tasty Tuesday -- Gingerbread

'Tis the season for one of my all-time favorite things: gingerbread!

Be it cookies or the cake-like bread, I will happily devour gingerbread anytime of year, but there's just something special--magical, even--about fresh, homemade gingerbread during the winter holidays. The smells, the flavors... *happy sigh*

This is the recipe I use, though I honestly don't remember where I got it years ago. Enjoy!

***

Gingerbread

Ingredients:
1/2 cup shortening
1/2 cup white sugar
1 egg
1/2 cup light molasses
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 cup water

Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees (175 degrees C). Grease and lightly flour one 8 inch square baking pan. Cream shortening and sugar until light. Add the egg and molasses and beat thoroughly. Sift together the flour, salt, baking soda, ground ginger, and ground cinnamon. Bring water to a boil and add alternately with flour mixture to the creamed mixture, beating well after each addition. Pour batter into prepared pan. Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 35 to 40 minutes. Serve warm and enjoy.

Preheat oven To 375
SIFT TOGETHER:
1 and 1/2 cups of flour
3/4 teaspoon soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
then set aside

CREAM TOGETHER:
1/2 cup of crisco
3/4 cup of sugar
Combine flour mixture with sugar mixture.

THEN ADD:
1 egg
1/4 cup molasses
1/2 cup of flaked coconut
1/2 cup of chopped nuts (she used pecans)

Drop by tablespoonful on cookie sheet about an inch apart. bake for 10 minutes.


This is my mother’s recipe for Molasses cookies. It brings back fond memories of coming home from school and how moist and chewy they are. When the kids were growing up as a treat my mom would stop by with one for each of us. They are so good. You are in for a treat.

Tasty Tuesday - An Icing to Die For

There are few things in this world that get my heart pounding and my mouth watering. One is a sexy and delicious romance (whether I read it, watch it, or experience it with my own Knight-in-not-so-shiny-armor, it's just as exciting!). The other is a decadent dessert that makes me forget, for just a little while, all the craziness that comes with being an erotic romance author on deadline as well as a mom, cook, housemouse, wife, lover, etc.

Today I'm going to introduce you to An Icing To Die For...White Chocolate Mousse. It's the perfect companion to The Better Than Sex Cupcake recipe found at the end of my Red Velvet Christmas story: Hidden Confection.

Take a look at the results of this recipe. What do you think? Delicious, no?

My husband and I worked for weeks to find the perfect blend of dark chocolate and red velvet to make a moist and delicious cupcake. The icing itself was a family favorite. Together...dynamite.

Without further ado, I present The Better Than Sex Red Velvet Cupcake Icing to Die For:

(recipe is modified from SuperChef's, my husband's, site, cbsop.com. Posted here with permission. All right's reserved)


ICING TO DIE FOR


  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 4 ounces white chocolate baking bars, coarsely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons vanilla

Heat cream in a 1 small saucepan until just boiling (also known as scalding the cream) 

Place white chocolate into a heat proof bowl and pour hot cream over chocolate. Allow to sit for approximately 3 minutes, then stir until smooth. 

Stir in vanilla and refrigerate until extremely cold (approximately 1 1/2 hours), stirring occasionally. Mixture will be thin.

In a large bowl, beat cold chocolate mixture with an electric mixer on medium speed for about a minute or until chocolate begins to thicken. Switch to high speed and mix until stiff peaks form (Note: if it won’t go to stiff peaks, it’s not cold enough, so place it back in the fridge for a half hour and then continue beating).

Pipe as needed onto cooled cupcakes. Important note here...if the cupcake is anything but room temperature or cooler, the mousse won't hold up well. 

If you'd like to see the delicious recipe for Mia Devyne's Better Than Sex Cupcakes, pick up Hidden Confection from Changeling Press December 5th or your favorite e-store as they're uploaded. 

Bonus for buying at Changeling...each Red Velvet book purchased gives you an entry into Changeling Press's annual event:

One Christmas Eve, Mia Devyne of Devyne Pastries went underground and closed up shop for good under scandalous rumors of bewitching red velvet holiday cakes designed to skyrocket your sex drive. Her disappearance sparked a worldwide search for her sensual seductions cookbook.

Four years later, a rival pastry chef has arrived on the scene with his own version of the cakes, and Mia can't stay away. For a Christmas present to herself, she wants to try just one bite of the Better Than Sex cupcake, and then she'll disappear back into the shadows. If she gets to kiss Liam again, well, that's just an added bonus.

Liam Merriman has one goal... draw the sexy Mia out of hiding and back to the spotlight where she belongs. He knows why she disappeared all those years ago, and he plans on picking up where they left off. Naked. In his bed.

Interview with Addison from Ticket To Ride by Ana Raine

What kind of job do you have?
I am a pianist at local clubs, bars, and anywhere else that will have me. But mostly, I’m kind of spoiled staying at home or practicing music while my boyfriend works.

Describe yourself in three words.
Adventurous, and surprisingly kinky.

Who is your love interest?
My boyfriend of five years,Taylor.

Tell us about your first kiss with Taylor.
My first kiss with Taylor was really hot. I had just finished playing at a dueling piano bar and was still pumped with adrenaline. Then this gorgeous, well dressed man approached me and I couldn’t help but want to kiss him.

List three things about Taylor that turn you on.
He’s kinky.
He always wants to please me.
He’s secretive and shy.

Do you like using sex toys?
Yes, I recently found out that I do.

Top or bottom?
Bottom, but only because Taylor is so good at being a top.

Whipped cream or Marshmallow?
I haven’t tried those, but probably whipped cream.

What's your idea of a romantic evening?
Being alone with Taylor.

What do you like to wear to bed?
Nothing at all so Taylor can be free to touch me.

Would you share the blurb from your story?

“Thinking of something?” Taylor asked, pushing a cup farther away from the edge of the counter so he could rest his arm on the marble.

“About the first time we made love.”

Taylor’s eyes lit up as he took hold of my arm, gently pulling me closer. He kept urging me forward until my erection was perfectly pressed against his leg. The way he towered over me, my head only came to the middle of his chest.

Craning my neck to look up at him, I watched his lips move as he asked, “Do you want more? I didn’t do the best job last night, did I?”

“You always do a good job,” I reminded him, laughing and pushing him away ever so slightly. I was more than relieved when his arm stayed strong around my waist. “I’m just hard to please.”

Taylor raised his eyebrows, “So I see. Luckily for me, I love sucking you off.”

I was surprised. “You don’t want any?”

“Not yet. I used you so hard last night; I’m surprised you didn’t pass out. But don’t worry,” his hand slipped away from my waist so he could lower himself to the floor. “I’ll get mine later.”

Interview with Tavis O’Connor from Demon Seduction by B.J. McCall

What kind of job do you have?

I gamble. I bet on horses and play poker, but if the odds suit me I’ll bet on just about anything. Lady luck has always been good to me.

Would you call yourself golden or a bad boy?

Definitely a bad boy. I like living on the edge, playing the odds and taking risks. I was in an auto accident recently. I totaled my car and the doctor said it was a miracle that I survived. While I was unconscious I saw my future. I didn’t believe in an afterlife, hellfire and demons, but I was wrong. I’ve been given a second change. I’ll never be golden, but I don’t want to see the flames of Perdition again.


Who is your love interest?

Her name is Despina. She’s breathtaking and likes me a lot. I’m crazy about her.


How did you and Despina meet?

She was standing outside the hospital when I was released. I was alone, without transportation and not a penny in my pocket. She offered me a ride. Despina was there at the precise moment I really needed someone. I’ll never stop needing her.

Would you share the blurb from your story?

I’d be happy to share the blurb from Demon Seduction. Some people might not believe my story, but I swear it’s true.

Tavis O'Connor didn't believe in heaven and hell until a glimpse into perdition convinces him to change his ways.

Despina is given the task of reclaiming the soul snatched from the flames. If she succeeds she'll be promoted and attain the demon rank of Wicked.

Confident in her powers of seduction, one night is all Despina needs to bring the sexy Irishman back to the dark side.

Tasty Tuesdays - Pat's Sausage Stuffing


Sausage Stuffing

1 bag of stuffing mix (Pepperidge Farm or Arnold’s, etc.)
1 lb. Sweet Italian sausage
1 large Vidalia onion chopped into small pieces
2 stalks of celery chopped into small pieces
1 can of chopped water chestnuts
3/4 cup of chopped pecans
1 stick of melted butter
2 to 3 cups of chicken stock depends on how wet you want it

Put stuffing mix in large bowl. Remove sausage from casing. Crumble and brown sausage. Remove sausage with slotted spoon. Put in bowl with stuffing mix. Saute celery and onion in sausage grease. Remove onion and celery and add to bowl with stuffing mix. Drain water chestnuts then add to stuffing mix bowl. Add chopped pecans. Pour melted butter over stuffing mix. Pour in stock and mix well.

Stuff turkey. If you prefer dressing to stuffing, place it in a buttered casserole dish and bake in oven for an hour at 325 degrees.

This is a family favorite. When we are going elsewhere for turkey, my immediate family always asks for me to bring my sausage dressing.

Interview with Quinn DePaul from Haunted by Danni Price

What kind of job do you have?
None at the moment.  I was a stuntman before I died.

Describe yourself in three words.
Charming, sarcastic and frustrated.  The last bit is a recent development.  And it's all because I died in the middle of having sex with this gorgeous blond.  My spirit wants to finish, but I have no body to make it happen. 

Who is your love interest?
In my opinion, the female gender is my love interest, but unfortunately most women can no longer see me.  Virginia can, but I think she likes my best friend Jake better.

Do you like using sex toys?
Sure.  I enjoy anything makes the sex better. There is nothing I love more than to please women in bed.

Top or bottom? 
Doggy actually.  There is something about a woman on all fours in front of me with her back arched just right. It’s like poetry.

Do you have any pets?
Not really.  Unless you count the cockroach who lives under the bathroom sink. 

Whipped cream or Marshmallow?
Chocolate Syrup! The messier the better.

What's your favorite food?
Pecan Pie heated with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.  When I was alive, I had to stay in perfect shape, but every once in a while I’d give into my sweet tooth.

What do you like to do in your free time?
Reality TV.  I like Duck Dynasty the best.  It was the second greatest day of my life when I figured out how to press the buttons on the remote. As a bonus, it freaks the cleaning lady out every time she comes in to find the television turned on.

Would you share the blurb from your story?
She took a seat opposite the bed in a blue chair that might once have contained stuffing, but those days were long gone. “Why are you here anyway?”
He flipped onto his back and folded his hands behind his head. “I don’t know. I loved my life.”
She forced herself to look away from his cock. “You must have had some unresolved issue.”
He sent her a lopsided grin. “Did you read that on a cereal box? Come on, you can do better.”
She groaned. “Listen, I’m not much of a medium. I don’t like it, but considering I can hear and now see dead people…”
He slid onto his side, head propped up on one hand, making it that much harder to ignore the giant erection in the room. “Well, that’s fascinating, but like it or not you’re here.”
“Okay, let me think. Do you like being dead?” She toyed with a bit of paper peeling off the top of the particleboard table.
“No.”
“Is there something you needed to tell someone before you died?” She slammed her hand down on the table to get his attention, but he only yawned. “Is there anything at all that you still give a shit about since you died?”
His eyes focused on her with an almost disturbing level of intensity. “Actually, yes. I always want to have sex. I mean even now with you desperately trying to keep your eyes off my dick. All I want to do is screw you every which way known to man, and then invent some for good measure.”
She pursed her lips and crossed her legs, trying to convey a displeasure she didn’t feel. Her pussy rather liked the idea. “Well, you died with an erection. So I guess that makes sense.”
“No, it’s more than that. I’m horny. That’s true. But when people have sex or even sexual thoughts around me, I feel a little alive.”
She scooted farther back into her chair. “Is that why you touched me last night?”
“You felt it?” His eyes lit up.
“I thought I was dreaming, but yes.”
“Last night something called to me, and there you were. When I possess someone, I end up feeling weaker and black out. But after you…” His gaze dropped to her lips. “I want to touch you again. I want to feel you come like you did last night, but for me.”
She bit the inside of her cheek. “Your unresolved issue might be that you died… Unsatisfied.”
Quinn broke out into loud guffaws, but after a few minutes his laughter died. He sat up cross-legged and faced her. “You know. That isn’t so crazy.”
“Thanks for the confidence.”
“You’re welcome, but we still have one problem.” He pointed at her with a dramatic pause. “I can’t touch myself even to jerk off, much less have sex with a woman. So, how am I supposed to resolve my…” He sent a pointed look to his cock. “Problem.”
She sucked in her bottom lip and dropped her gaze. “Well, I might have an idea, but we would need Jake’s help.”
