Pick of the week

I am honoured that my new release Abigail Cottage has been named Pick of the week by thriller writer Lorrie Struiff

Check it out!!

Abigail Cottage

When Abigail falls in love with Justin she can’t begin to know the world of hurt she is heading into. Gorgeous, kind, rich – he’s the man we all dream to meet. BUT, all is not what it seems because Justin is a true demon from hell, disguised as a mortal being. He wants her and will do, kill or maim anyone who tries to stop him. Namely Shaun the real hero, who wants Abigail more! So what does a mortal man do against a demon? He enlists the help of a gypsy of course. But not any old gypsy. Rosa knows Justin very well and has the powers of the spirit world on her side to fight him. Using crystals as a powerful weapon, the light of the spirit world to lead them, they embark on a battle with the whole of the underworld. Many loved ones will lose their lives. This isn’t a book where everyone survives. In real life, bad things happen. In Abigail Cottage, terrible tragedies occur too. Believe... not every story can have a happy ending.

Ginger Simpson is in da house!!!

I thank Margaret for inviting me here today to share my favorite recipes with you. Since marrying my second husband, who is the king of the kitchen, I rarely cook anymore. I’d share some of his delightful recipes but the problem is, he doesn’t have any. He “wings it” and the results are delicious, but therein lies the problem. You’ll never get the same dish twice because he can’t remember what he put in the previous time. *smile*

So, I’ve flipped through my 3x5 card index, looking for something to share. I don’t have anything really awesome, but I do think I’ve found one you all can use at one point or another.

3 cups of tap water
1 fairly large pan

Fill a Pyrex measuring glass to the “2 cup” line and dump into the pan. Add an additional “cup” to the measuring glass and add to liquid already in the pan. No stirring necessary.

Place contents on a high flame until bubbles appear.

Voile! Boiled water!

The possibilities are endless. You can add Lipton Soup mix, Kraft Macaroni (cheese to be added after noodles cook), make hot chocolate… or you can bottle it and know that in the case of a national disaster, you have clean, boiled water for your family. Oh, and I didn’t think I had anything useful to offer. Silly me! This definitely beats my recipe for burned microwave popcorn.

Historical fact:
Did you know that the Lakota Sioux carried their water from local streams in pouches made from the stomach of the buffalo? The demise of the bison was a major factor in the tribes that so depended on these animals for everything: food, shelter, clothing, needles, bowstrings, tools. No part of a slain animal was wasted by an Indian… unlike the white men who killed them for only their pelts and left everything else to rot.

Talking about Native Americans, have a look at Gingers latest release, White Heart, Lakota Spirit. Fab or what!!!

Well, I think we will all be using Gingers great idea most of next year!!

  11. I think I may try this with some pasta. If it works for macaroni - and I don't have the added step of adding cheese. Thanks Ginger!
    I love the book cover.

  12. Hi Ginger,
    Another thing you and I have in common husbands who cook. Now your recipe for boiled water, I think I could just about manage that without burning it.
