Who’s Collin? OMG, lemme tell you who Collin is. He is a character in my newest submission… Protect and Correct..
One thing I LOVE about my readers is the intelligence they have. Because of that, I am given the amazing opportunity to write in so many different venues and offer a myriad of stories that the ‘average’ reader might not either understand or embrace.
That being said, this new piece is WAY different than the others… it was inspired by James Patterson, another brilliant author. Without giving it away… just know this…
Brooke wakes up with a new face, a new body, and a new identity. The FBI suspects her killer knows she is still alive and places her in the Witness Protection Program under the care of Collin Golde… a man with his own, deep secrets. Brooke hates the loss of her freedom and struggles foolishly against Collin’s protective nature. Well, you know exactly how he gets her attention- and how he keeps it!
It’s a suspense novel with lots of fun twists and turns, tons of laughter and some tears… and hopefully a book that will leave the readers thinking twice about the important things in their own lives. Most importantly, Meatball likes it. Yeah, she said so!
It’s with the publishers, along with Whips and Canes (not sure of the real title yet!), so its just a matter of the final edits!
Oh Yeah- the chicken recipe… a PERFECT autumn meal, super easy and even better tasting. Collin makes this for Brooke…. what a guy!
Whole chicken- cleaned, washed and dried (use gloves or the chicken police will get you)
Cornbread stuffing (one box or bag)
Fresh cranberries (one cup)
celery (three stalks, chopped)
One small onion (chopped)
One can water-chestnuts (chopped)
Two springs fresh rosemary (dried if ya can’t find fresh)
Spices– garlic salt, pepper, dried orange peels
Butter (1 cup)
Chicken broth (1 can)
1. Turn crockpot on high
2. Sauté the celery, onions and chestnuts in butter until onions start to soften. Add cranberries until skins start to split. Add chicken broth and turn off heat.
3. Add cornbread stuffing to mix- it will be dry! That”s okay cuz the chicken juices will moisten it.
4. Stuff chicken cavities with stuffing and toss chicken in crockpot.
5. sprinkle rosemary, garlic salt, pepper and orange peels on dried chicken skin.
6. dump the rest of stuffing on top of chicken, along sides, etc. add a spring of rosemary on top
7. cook on high for 4 hours and turn to low until you are ready to eat.
TO serve… No, don’t pick from the crockpot! Remove stuffing and bird. put stuffing a bowl and add juices from bottom of crockpot if needed to moisten. YUMMMMM
