I want to celebrate this day by eating chocolate with all of you!!
My kids often ask, “If you could have one special power, what would you want?” Of course, they mean the ability to fly (which could be handy when we’re running late for the school bus) or lasers shooting from my eyes (also handy for cooking dinner) or super speed (great for cleaning the house in the blink of an eye) but what I would really want, would be the ability to make baked goods appear out of thin air and then send them to anywhere in the world on a thought. I believe that power is the true path to world peace.
Anyway, to day is release day for Christmas Kisses: An Echo Ridge Anthology and I wanted to share a little known fact about the book. We slipped in some pretty awesome recipes. That’s right, each story has a recipe that goes with it!
In The Candy Counter Heiress, Andy has a thing for banana flavored chocolates (and kisses) so Lucy whipped up a recipe for Chocolate Banana Nut Bread.
Christmas Makeover introduces you to one of the hot spots in Echo Ridge where the pizza is to die for. Cami Checketts has included a recipe for Emma’s Homemade Bread that will have you going back for seconds.
Rachelle Christensen’s Hope for Christmas is a story with a whole lot of heart and her recipe for Carlos’s White Chicken Chili
w/Optional Slow-Cooker tips has a whole lot of flavor!
Soda Fountain Christmas, by Connie Sokol, celebrates the fun of yesteryear as Kenworth’s Department Store works to regain the sense of community department stores were built upon. To celebrate days gone by, Connie included a recipe for Martha Jean’s Apple Cider Donuts.
Heather Tullis, author of One Winter Night, knows how to spice up a story and her recipe for Fay’s Gingerbread Cupcakes is just the thing to cap off your holiday parties.
BUT, you get so much more than wonderful recipes with Christmas Kisses
. The stories are sure to capture your imagination–and your heart–and transport you to Echo Ridge where romance, Christmas music, and twinkling lights abound.
