Killer Recipe with Laurel Blount, Evelyn M. Hill, and Sherri Shackelford

Since we're all fat and happy this holiday season, I thought I'd share a killer recipe designed to destroy diets.

Introduced to me by the author, Pam Crooks, I've added a few killer changes. It's too good not to share.

WARNING: This addictive recipe makes a TON! This recipe makes FIVE 1-GALLON BAGS. And you'll want to devour every, last bite.

You've been warned...this recipe is a KILLER!

Merry Christmas! 


1 box Crispix or Crispix-type cereal
1 16 oz bag pretzels
1 15 oz bag Fritos
1 box Cheez-its (or 1 bag Pepperidge Farms Goldfish)
2 bags Bugles (Decorate fingertips with bugles and pretend to be an evil witch before adding. Wash hands first. You're not a savage.)
1 lb of mixed nuts (Or not. You do you, dude.)

2 cups brown sugar
4 sticks butter (Only butter. Margarine is for losers.)
*If someone asks you how much butter is in this diet-buster, just say, "A tablespoon or so."
In the world of snack mix, ignorance is bliss.
1 1/2 tsp curry powder
4 tsp garlic powder
5 tsp chili powder
1 TBSP Worcestershire sauce
(Look left and right to see if anyone is watching, then add another dash for good measure because you love Worcestershire sauce so much.)
1/4 tsp Cayenne pepper. Laugh manically while adding.

Divide the dry ingredients evenly between 2 large roasting pans. Melt dressing ingredients together and pour over the dry mix.

Bake 250 degrees for 1 hour. Stir every 20 minutes. (Optional but highly recommended: Taste mix after 40 minutes. Burn fingers in process. Live with zero regrets.)

Laurel Blount

A Baby for the Minister (Love Inspired Book 2) by [Blount, Laurel]

Jilted at the altar, Natalie Davis has no one she can turn to—until Jacob Stone steps in. The single minister’s drawn to the beautiful mommy-to-be and wants to help…even if it goes against his congregation’s wishes and could cost him his job. But when she refuses to accept charity, can he convince her she’s more than a ministry project?


Laurel Blount lives on a small farm in middle Georgia with her husband, their four children, a milk cow, dairy goats, assorted chickens and ducks, three spoiled cats and one extremely bossy goose with boundary issues. She divides her time between farm chores, homeschooling, teaching foreign language and writing. She's busy, but she's never bored!

Her debut novel A FAMILY FOR THE FARMER was the recipient of the 2017 Maggie Award for Excellence in the Romance with Religious or Spiritual Elements category. This book also received two 2017 Holt Awards of Merit and was a finalist in the 2017 Carol Awards.

Whenever she's not working, you can find Laurel with a cup of tea at her elbow, a cat in her lap, and a good book in her hand.


His Forgotten Fiancée (Love Inspired Historical) by [Hill, Evelyn M.]

Liza Fitzpatrick is stunned when her fiancé finally arrives in Oregon City -- with amnesia. Matthew Dean refuses to honor a marriage proposal he doesn't recall making, but Liza needs his help now to bring in the harvest, and maybe she can help him remember...
Matthew is attracted to the spirited Liza, and as she tries to help him regain his old memories, the new ones they're creating together start to make him feel whole. Even as he falls for her again, though, someone's determined to keep them apart. Will his memory return in time to save their future?

Evelyn Hill
According to family tradition, Evelyn M. Hill is descended from a long line of Texas horse thieves. (But when your family is not only Texan, but Irish, tall tales come with the territory.) This might explain why she devoted much of her childhood to writing stories about horses. Once she grew up, the stories naturally featured a tall, handsome cowboy as well.

She lives at the end of the Oregon Trail, where she gets to do all her historical research in person.

Sherri Shackelford

A former naval reservist with a top-secret security clearance, Sherri writes rapid-fire suspense featuring captivating characters and heart-pounding romance. She's authored more than a dozen novels for Harlequin publishing, including both historical and contemporary suspense.

Visit her Website, or follow her on social media:



He lives by the law.

She’s running for her life.

After forensic accountant Beth Greenwood uncovers a money-laundering scheme tying her company to the organization that murdered her mentor, she knows she needs to go into hiding. With ruthless killers in pursuit, she’s forced to rely on homeland security agent Corbin Ross’s protection—even as his investigation suggests Beth is complicit in embezzlement. Can their uneasy alliance develop into something deeper—and keep them alive?
