2/24/14 dinner

I love to cook! I love everything about it well, other then cleaning up. I’m messy

I worked the early shift at work today so I was able to come home and cook! Tonight I’m making steak and onion sandwiches and Bacon ranch potato wedges fries. Yummy! And very simple too!

Dinner went very well, my husband loved it!

Look for the recipe soon!

This new series by Surrey Books launches with an everything-you-need-to-know guide to using the slow cooker, and features 101 delicious, diverse, and recipes, all of which have been thoroughly kitchen-tested to ensure you have success every time you make one.

Featuring a detailed introduction that covers the basics of slow-cooking and discusses helpful how-to’s, insider tips, and keys to best results, this book–and all the books in the 101 series–features a simple, contemporary-looking design that’s as clear-cut as it is elegant, with measures calculated using both traditional and metric quantities. Scattered throughout are beautiful full-color photographs that accentuate the book’s visual appeal. This is a practical, hands-on kitchen resource that will also look great on the shelf–and because its flex-binding is sewn, it’s supremely easy to keep open and flat on your kitchen counter while you’re cooking from it.

Perfect both for beginners and more experienced cooks looking to broaden their kitchen horizons, Slow Cooker 101’s breadth of recipes are drawn from a wide range of culinary traditions. Among the delicious recipes include here:
Beef Stroganoff
Lamb Biryani

Winter Vegetable Risotto

Chicken Mole
Cioppino

Vampire master Michelle, and her slave, Aaron Pilan, leave the heartbreak of Vegas…

…for a new start in Paris. Aaron’s mistakes in Vegas make him question everything he knows about Michelle, and the prospect of a long, lonely future with her.

Struggling with his predatory alter ego, Aaron chafes under Michelle’s rules. His animalistic desires drive him to take a lover without conditions – a bloodslave – but Michelle refuses.

Michelle is not blind to Aaron’s needs. She answers his demands by opening her heart and soul to him. Their minds intertwine and Aaron relives her dark, gritty tale of survival in the ravages of war-torn Paris under the German occupation. Her disturbing revelations are met with shock, pushing Aaron even further from her. For the first time, Michelle begins to reconsider the way she has lived all these decades.

And they are not alone in Paris. An investigator has shadowed them from Vegas, seeking the unique gifts of Michelle’s blood. He hunts the vampires, attacking them at their most vulnerable time. Michelle and Aaron face death and worse – separation.

Aaron and Michelle’s wicked, pulse-pounding tale drags readers breathless through one cataclysmic event after another.

What happened to her fairytale life? 
She’s young, she’s sharp, she’s the hardest working attorney in the whole LA office. Still, when Alexis O’Brien finally gets brutally honest with herself, she has to admit she’s nothing more than a glorified workhorse for her boss and his slippery partners. Her dissatisfaction only deepens when she gets sent on a wild goose chase to rural Wyoming to find some elusive gifted architect for a project she thinks is corrupt. 
Then she meets Sean Rockland. The antithesis of the effeminate manicured types she’s used to at work, with his muscles fairly rippling under his button down, Sean ticks her off from the very first moment she lays eyes on him as he’s recuing her from car trouble—which only makes him laugh. Of course that doesn’t help. 
Sean has this way of calmly logically encouraging her to face her issues that makes her even madder. Why does he always have to be right? Why is she drawn to him anyway? What’s up with all these crazy fairies appearing? And why can’t she find the darned missing architect? 
When her spitfire meets his steel sparks begin to fly!
Watch for more of the Rockland Ranch series!

Heartbroken rant

Have you seen this on Craigslist yet? This is truly a heart breaking story of a poor beautiful pit bull. I don’t know how in the world people can be like this. Its sicking! I am going to try and contact the person who has the dog now. Hopefully I will know more soon. I love animals, and stores like this are ridiculous. I think the people who do this, should get a taste of their own medicine.
