Happy Holidays everyone! I can’t believe it’s December. This year just flew by! As 2013 comes to a close, I thought I’d share a few of my favorite things. The first is my love of holiday jokes. I know they’re cheesy, but I just loving telling them.
Where did Mrs. Frosty meet Mr. Frosty?
At the Snow Ball.
What holiday drink really gets on your nerves?
I could go on and on, but I’ll stop there.
The second is my love of cooking for holiday get-togethers. There are a few dishes my family always requests I make. So in keeping with Edie’s theme of sharing recipes, here is my recipe for Pretzel Jell-O:
Combine and press into a greased 9×13 pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes or until golden brown. Cool.
Blend and spread on first layer. Put in freezer to chill for 30 minutes.
Third layer: 6 oz strawberry Jell-o
2 C boiling water
20 oz frozen strawberries
Mix Jell-o and water then stir in frozen strawberries. Pour on top of second layer. Put in fridge and eat when firm. Enjoy!
And lastly, I wanted to share a video that I came across and really loved. In my latest release, HER ACCIDENTAL BOYFRIEND, Shane, my hero, often calls Kagan, my heroine, by her nickname, Jelly Belly. And well, when I saw this video, I couldn’t help but think about the characters I’d written. But more importantly, I thought about my own story – the one already composed, but also the one still being written. “The Time You Have (in Jelly Beans)” reminded me not to take a single day for granted.
So tell me, what are you doing today? Leave me a comment and you’ll be entered to win a $10 gift card to the online store of your choice. I’ll post the winner’s name on Thursday.
Best wishes for a wonderful December and very happy New Year!
