Free Holiday Cook Book 2019

 A tasty present from the creative authors 
 at the Wild Rose Press 

     Here is my pumpkin soup recipe.
             Perfect for a cold winter's day or night.

Cousin Jeanne’s Pumpkin Soup
2 1/4 cups pumpkin (okay to use entire can)
1 cup coconut milk (okay to use entire can)
1-2 tablespoons maple syrup. Start with 1.
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp smoke paprika
2 cups veggie stock (may not need all)
2 shallots (3 if small)
4 cloves garlic
1/2 red bell pepper

Brown shallots and garlic in olive oil for 2-3 minutes.
Add rest of ingredients & bring to simmer.
Blend in regular blender or with immersion blender.
Return to stove and cook 5-10 minutes.

Great with focaccia bread, toasted cheese sandwiches.
Be creative. Top with dollop of sour cream, toasted
pumpkin seeds, lime zest, picante sauce.
Add your own twist: ginger, curry, etc.

I'm betting Kade and Blind Deer wish 
they had this to eat 
as they traveled the untamed frontier 
on the way to rendezvous.

While searching for her Native American tribe, Blind Deer crosses paths with Kade—with near fatal results. Once she is patched up, she decides it is safer to travel with him than alone Their uneasy alliance turns to genuine caring, but Blind Deer's past gets in the way, and she must choose between love or old obligations.

                     Both seek retribution, 
                  neither is looking for love.  

    Ochessa is heartbroken when she finds her brother
fatally wounded. His dying words are about a childhood puzzle box, missing legal documents, and a drifter named Nicodemus Breedlove. Ochessa vows to find Will’s murderer—and the man Will described.
   No stranger to trouble, Nic's only concerns are his
Stetson, his mule Sadie, and a long awaited chance at retribution. After gaining Ochessa’s trust, and taking the job she offers, life gets more complicated. 
    Back on the ranch in Colorado, Ochessa works as hard as any man. Then Nick tempts her into playing even harder as a woman—both are overwhelmed by their growing love for one another.
    Weathering a stampede, a gully washer, and a pack of outlaws, they locate the killer. As Nic’s quest for justice, and Ochessa’s vendetta for Will play out, bullets fly...                               
         Not everybody’s gonna make it out alive.

  “I’ve come for the job,” Nic said.
   Ochessa hesitated only a moment. “I don’t need any more ranch hands.”
  “Not a job, the job.” Nic retrieved the bounty poster from inside his shirt, leaned forward, and held it up in front of her face.
  Of course. Naturally he would be offering a gun for hire, not a strong back for bending.
   Re-folding the paper, he tucked it away in his back
pocket. Several similar fliers were poking out of his saddlebag. He must have collected all the ones she tacked up in town.
  “It doesn’t say anything about expenses,” he continued.
  “That’s because I don’t intend to pay any.”
  “That should narrow down the applicants considerably.” His gaze settled on her lips. “Or are you planning to offer incentive of a more personal nature?”
 “Listen, Breedlove. Don’t get your hopes up—or anything else. Whoever I hire can live and eat at the ranch for free. And they can stay at Will’s cabin if the search takes them back to Kansas.”
  He seemed disappointed. She didn’t care, or at least she shouldn’t care. What this man thought held no consequence for her. Being a drifter, he would most likely ride out of her life as quickly and unexpectedly as he’d galloped into it.
  “Well…” Nic urged the mule one step closer.
  “Well, what?”
  “Do I get the job or not?”
