Her Mr. Miracle - #NewRelease Holiday Romance @DonnaFaz



I’m excited to share my New Release with you. Her Mr. Miracle is the 8th book in my Ocean City Boardwalk Series. 

The awesome thing about Her Mr. Miracle is that the story went in directions I was not expecting. I love it when that happens. One secondary character in particular showed up out of the blue, and she made a decision that I found, well… shocking. But once the scenes were written, I found myself coming to a place of compassion and understanding for her.

Here’s a little more about Her Mr. Miracle:

Veronica “Ronnie” Clark has had it up to here with her family. So she shoves her suitcase into the trunk of her car along with that billowy, lacy, monstrosity of a bridal gown and hits the road. Unfortunately, her old Volvo gives out, leaving her stranded on Christmas Eve in the nearly deserted seaside town of Ocean CityMaryland. Oh, boy, does she ever need a miracle!

And like Christmas magic, her Mr. Miracle appears. Adam Rone stops to offer her assistance, and once the tow truck drives away with the Volvo, he suggests she stay at Ocean Dreams, the hotel he owns and operates in the tourist town. 

Ronnie is drawn to the compassionate single dad, and the attraction they feel is undeniable. But when she learns all he’s going through to keep his family together, she can’t bring herself to reveal to him that she’s running from hers. All she wants is for him to take her in his arms and kiss her, but he keeps asking about that stupid wedding dress!

Dina Griffin flees a dangerous situation and ends up in Ocean City, Maryland where she hopes to spend the holidays in hiding. Trusting no one, she wants only one thing this Christmas—to feel safe. Then Officer Gav Thomas threatens to arrest her for shoplifting. Shoplifting? 

Gav is certain there’s something Dina isn’t telling him about her visit to his seaside town, so he devises a means to stick close to the vulnerable beauty. An unexpected attraction sparks, fierce enough to heat up the salt-tinged, wintry nights.

But the trouble Dina had hoped to escape arrives at her doorstep, bringing with it stark-raving fear and the realization that she must place her trust in someone.

Is Gav really just a local cop… or is he Dina’s guardian angel?

Pumpkin Roll for Autumn - #Recipes for #Foodies


November brings cool, crisp temperatures, gorgeous colorful leaves, delicious family feasts, and Pumpkin Roll! My family goes crazy for Pumpkin Roll. In this Pumpkin Roll recipe, I use a ready-made spice blend that includes cinnamon, ginger, cloves, and allspice… all the tastes that celebrate autumn.

Pumpkin Roll

Ingredients for the Pumpkin Roll cake:
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 1/2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice blend
1/4 teaspoon salt
3 large eggs, room temperature
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
2/3 cup canned pumpkin

Ingredients for the Pumpkin Roll filling:
1 8 oz. package cream cheese, softened
1 cup powdered sugar
4 tablespoons butter, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
More powdered sugar for garnish if desired

Instructions:
1. For cake: Preheat oven to 375° F. Grease a 15 x 10-inch jelly roll pan; line with parchment paper. Allow 2-inches of overhang on the 15-inch sides of the pan for easy removal. Spray the parchment paper with baking spray.
2. Combine flour, baking powder, spice mix, and salt in small bowl. Beat eggs and the white and brown sugars in larger mixer bowl until thick. Beat in pumpkin. Gently stir in flour mixture. Spread evenly into prepared pan.
3. Bake for 13-15 minutes or until top of cake springs back when lightly touched. Immediately loosen and turn cake onto a clean, dry cotton towel. Carefully peel off paper. Roll up cake and towel together, starting with narrow end. Cool on wire rack.
4. For filling: Beat cream cheese, powdered sugar, butter, and vanilla in small mixer bowl until smooth.
5. Carefully unroll cooled cake; remove towel. Spread cream cheese mixture over cake. Re-roll cake. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate Pumpkin Roll at least four hours. Sprinkle with powdered sugar before serving, if desired.

National S'mores Day - August 10th



Today is National S’mores Day! I used to make S’mores with my kids when we spent our summer vacations in Cabin 18 at Harrington Manor State Park. We’d toast marshmallows over a camp fire and sandwich them between graham crackers along with a nice hunk of chocolate. But according to the Kraft website, you can make indoor S’mores in your microwave. Here’s the recipe:


4 Honeymaid graham crackers, snapped in half
4 Jet-Puffed marshmallows
1 Hershey’s milk chocolate bar (1.55 ounces), quartered

Place 4 graham squares on microwaveable plate; top with chocolate and marshmallows. Microwave on high 15 to 20 seconds or until marshmallows puff. Cover with remaining graham squares; press together gently to secure.

There are many other ways to celebrate National S’mores Day.

At Today.com, find a recipe for Gooey S’mores Pie and 4 other recipes.

TasteOfHome.com offers 19 new ways to make S’mores.

HuffingtonPost.com has a grown-up take on S’mores.

So pull out those graham crackers, marshmallows, and chocolate bars. Today’s going to be a S’mores Day!


Rich Decadent Cocoa Brownies


I somehow ended up with 3 open containers of cocoa in my pantry and I was looking for a recipe to use up some of it. I found a brownie recipe at Epecurious.com that looked interesting and I did a little fiddling. (I’ll bet you’re not surprised.) The result is rich, decadent cocoa brownies that will satisfy anyone’s chocolate craving.

Rich, Decadent Cocoa Brownies

10 tablespoons butter, melted
3/4 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons cocoa
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup all purpose flour
3/4 cup chopped walnuts (optional)

1.      Preheat oven to 325° F. Spray an 8 inch square pan with cooking spray and set aside.
2.    In a bowl, stir together the melted butter, the white and brown sugars, and the cocoa. Add eggs one at a time and beat after each addition until eggs are well incorporated. Stir in the vanilla and salt.
3.    Add flour and stir just until the flour is incorporated. Do not over beat. Stir in walnuts. Batter will thick.
4.    Spread batter evenly in prepared 8 inch square baking pan and bake for approximately 30 to 35 minutes.

As you can see in the pictures, I’ve drizzled my brownies with store bought caramel sauce, but these brownies would also be great with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. (They’re also delicious all on their own. Just ask my husband, who got up in the middle of the night for several more chocolaty, delectable squares.)
