I found a link to a recipe on Smexy Books for a Samoa girl scout cookie bundt cake that BetsyLife posted.  After I stopped drooling, I forwarded the recipe to my friend’s mom (because I can’t even manage to bake one of those boxed cake mixes without setting off the smoke detector) and she made it for me.  It is so freakin’ delicious.  Like, hide it so no one else can have any good. 

Cover Talk

Resized1   Resized 2

Not really in love with either of these covers.  It’s more that we’re just really excited for the releases.  Avenging Angel (book 4 in Cynthia Eden’s The Fallen series) is currently scheduled to be released on May 28th and Bayou Noel doesn’t have a release date yet (as far as we know!) but seeing how it’s Christmas themed, it’s safe to say it’ll be out towards the end of the year.
