Southwest Chicken Crock-Pot #Recipe

A friend gave me a recipe for the crock-pot meal that she claimed is easy and delicious. I made it last week and she is right. Easy. And. Delicious. Now that the weather is cooling off a bit, I love to use my crock-pot. Try this recipe and let me know what you think.

Easy Southwest Chicken

4 skinless, boneless chicken breasts
1 15 ounce can black beans, rinsed and drained
1 lb bag of frozen sweet corn
1 can petite diced fire-roasted tomatoes (do not drain)
1 jar salsa, choose your favorite heat level

Place chicken breasts in the bottom of the crock-pot and then layer on the other ingredients: beans, corn, tomatoes, salsa. For the salsa, I used a 17.6 ounce jar of Goya Pico de Gallo because that’s what I had in my pantry. Cook on high for 4 hours, or on low for 7 hours. When ready to serve, reach into the crock-pot with a pair of tongs and shred the chicken breasts.

Now, decide how you want to serve. Spoon this lusciousness over cooked rice, or wrap it in soft tortillas, or sprinkle on some shredded cheese and serve with crisp tortilla chips.

Serves 4 as a main course, 6-8 as an appetizer.

Easy and delicious! Enjoy!

SHE'S NOT YOU by @MimiBarbour #Christmas Book #TenBrides

Today, I invite Mimi Barbour, a friend and fellow author, 
to chat about her book, SHE'S NOT YOU.

The months it took to write this book was a fun time for me. The song echoed in my head periodically to remind me of where the plot line needed to go. I’d even play the tune just to get in the mood.

Of course, writing about this holiday is always special. I enjoy trying to get the mood just right so that it comes through the pages for the readers to experience. You know - those festive touches that bring the season close and makes one feel, taste and smell Christmas.

When I write my characters, I have a vision in my head, and at first, for the hero, I saw Elvis himself. But then Jesse Parker emerged and became his own man. I’m glad, because he’s a sweetheart and a shadow to no one. Locked into an old, dead romance, this guy needed to wake up and let go of his memories. Then he wouldn’t miss the lovely woman right in front of him – my heroine Belle. In the song it said – And it’s just breakin’ my heart cause she’s not you. Maybe not, but what if she’s better?

Belle Foster soon became real to me also. As a mother myself, I felt her worries and fears for her little girl. She’s a woman who’s had so much to overcome, most of all a belief in her own worthiness. Sick and alone at any time of the year is difficult, but when you have a small child who relies on you, and the season is Christmas, then who wouldn’t yearn for that special person to share their world.

And Layla, the child, could be anyone’s daughter or granddaughter. Mischievous and cute as a button, she gets into your heart, digs a hole and won’t be shook loose.

Put these three people together in a love story and you have a delightful tale that will warm your heart and brighten the holiday season for any reader of romance. Add a wedding and it can’t get much better...

Actually, it
can get better. This is just one of ten books in the
Ten Christmas Brides

Neu auf Deutsch: EHEFRAU AUF ZEIT Taschenbuch #Bücher #Kindle

This post is for my German readers!

Neu Deutsch Bücher (New German Book)

Der: Ehefrau auf Zeit

Kurzbeschreibung –

Ben Danvers ist jung, schön und verzweifelt: Er wird alles verlieren – wenn es ihm nicht gelingen sollte, innerhalb der nächsten Wochen zu heiraten. Er hat keine Chance, denn die Testamentsbedingungen seines Großvaters sind zwar haarsträubend, aber wasserdicht. Ben hat die Hoffnung fast aufgegeben. Doch dann schlägt ihm plötzlich die Frau, bei der er am wenigsten an eine Heirat gedacht hätte, ein überraschendes Geschäft vor. Chelsea Carson macht Ben ein Angebot, das er nicht ablehnen kann: Er sollte die im Familienbesitz befindlichen Plantagen behalten, wenn er ihr im Gegenzug ihren Lebenstraum erfüllt. Und dieser Traum wird weder mit Verpflichtungen noch mit lästigen Emotionen geträumt, falls er einmal platzen sollte. Ihr geschlossener Pakt ist perfekt, ihre provisorische Ehe die Lösung. Es sei denn, Chelsea würde zulassen, dass die Liebe ihren Plan vereitelte.
