CJ’s Grape Salad isn’t the original name of this recipe. I don’t remember what my
friend Teri called this dish when she served it at a get-together at her home six
All I do know is my family loved this decadent grape salad that was served as a
side dish, even though it tastes like dessert. And no one in my family loved it
more than my youngest daughter Read More...
This recipe is special to me for two reasons. First of all, this pie crust is

Usually we travel every Thanksgiving to family a few states away. This year,
however, my husband is working, so we’re homebound. I’m pretty excited about
it, but my daughters are bouncing off the walls. Not only do we not have to

I’ll probably make the turkey, but my parents are arriving at the airport at
noon, so the kids are Read More...

In WHERE THERE'S SMOKE a novella in the A WRONG BED
CHRISTMAS book, my two characters Emma and Erik are stuck in an abandoned
