LOVE IN BLOOM BLOG HOP

Welcome to the Love in Bloom Blog Hop! I’m offering a signed copy of my novel A GHOST OF A SECOND CHANCE and this gorgeous photo album. The album looks nothing like the photo album Laine discovers in her grandfather's attic--no dust or spiderwebs--but I really like the crystal and I hope the lucky winner will, too. I debated on what to offer for a give-away. I really wanted to buy everyone apple fritters, the favorite food of my main character in A GHOST OF A SECOND CHANCE, but that sounded messy, so I’m including a recipe. If you ever feel stressed or haunted by ghosts, I hope you’ll find some comfort in a fritter.

 What do you have to do to win my book and the photo album?

 Follow my blog. 

Like my book on Amazon. Here's the link-- http://www.amazon.com/Ghost-Second-Chance-Arbor-ebook/dp/B007IK0KZK/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1336714245&sr=8-1

 Leave a comment and include contact information (so that if you win I'll know how to find you).

 And to thank you for visiting, here's the fritter recipe.

 Ingredients:

1 cup sifted all-purpose flour
1/4 cup sugar 1 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/3 cup milk
1 egg
1 cup finely chopped apple
1/2 cup confectioners' sugar, sifted

Preparation: Sift together the flour, sugar, salt, and baking powder. Add milk and egg; beat until batter is smooth. Fold in chopped apple. Drop by teaspoonfuls into deep hot oil -- about 370° and at least 2 1/2 to 3 inches deep -- and fry for about 2 to 3 minutes, until nicely browned. Drain well on paper towels then roll in confectioners' sugar while still warm. Serve as is or warm, with syrup, if desired.


When you’re finished licking your fritter sticky fingers, please visit all my blogging friends to see what prizes they’re offering.
