It’s that time of year again…Thanksgiving is just around the corner. I already have a turkey in the freezer!

The recipe I’m going to share with you today has garnered me a ton of accolades for something SO simple. It looks fancy and tastes great, but it’s one of the easiest things you could possibly make. It’s a faker 🙂 I’m asked to bring this places all the time.

Okay…so what is it. It’s a dinner roll variation on monkey bread baked in a bundt pan. It’s the bundt pan that gives it such great presentation.

Easy Breezy Fancy Dinner Roll Loaf

Ingredients:

one stick butter
two tubes large refrigerator biscuits (store brand fine, buttermilk flavor or other is fine)
1 – 2 tsp thyme (You can use another herb, but I’ve found thyme really works well.)

Seriously, three ingredients and the pan – how easy is that?

Here’s what you do. Heat over to 375 degrees. Melt the butter (I put it in the microwave). Pour the melted butter in the bottom of the bundt pan. Get butter all over the sides and center of the pan (I use a pastry brush). There will still be butter pooled in the bottom. Now sprinkle the thyme all over the sides and bottom of the pan. Spread it out and try not to bunch it up in one place.

Now for the biscuits. I usually take all the biscuits out and put them on a plate to help myself. There are usually ten biscuits. Remember you want the big ones.

Place the biscuits upright one by one into the pan. You may need to scoot some over but they will all fit in a standard bundt pan.

Put the pan into your 375 degree oven. It usually takes about 20 minutes to bake. The biscuits all puff up and squish together like a cake. Check with a fork for doneness. If you pull apart some biscuits and they look raw, cook longer. Having a nice crust on the outside is cool!

I usually use a round pizza pan for serving. Put the pan (or your plate) on top of the bundt pan and invert it. Shake it a little and the whole thing should come out. People can pull it apart and get a nice buttery biscuit. Don’t worry, it doesn’t really taste like refrigerator biscuits with all the butter and the herbs.

These even work great as leftovers (if there are any left!).

Eat!

Bad Boys of Romance

In my newest release, Her Wish His Command (Book 3), the heroine Anna longs for her co-worker Jonah. When she finally gets her shot, she’s afraid he can’t be the commanding man she needs.

*****

wish_command_200x300Her Wish, His Command Blurb

Doctor Anna Foster may just get what she wants: sexy fellow researcher Jonah Granger. She’s been in love with him for years, but Jonah has always been more interested in work at his family’s business, Granger Pharma, than romance. Now that they’ve admitted their attraction, Anna may even be able to tell him what she really wants: to submit to him.

But Granger Pharma faces a hostile takeover. Sensitive data and samples are missing from Anna and Jonah’s lab; it may be corporate espionage. Everyone is under suspicion and, and they’re even beginning to question each other. Anna must discover the truth if she’s going to save both her job and her relationship with the man she dreams of serving.

Her Wish, His Command Excerpt

Jonah sipped from his cup. “This coffee is better than usual. What did you do?”

“I washed out the pot and filter?” Anna laughed and threw her braid back over her shoulder. Wasn’t playing with hair supposed to be a flirty thing to do? She glanced into Jonah’s eyes and saw his pupils dilate ever so slightly.

Jonah placed his cup on the counter. “I usually just dump the old coffee.”

Anna reached to top him off, making sure she grazed him again. She turned and put the coffee pot back in its place. Her hip bumped him.

“Anna?” he asked in a deep, questioning tone.

“Yes?” She paused. “Jonah?” She drew his name out on her tongue.

His eyes locked with hers. “What’s this about?”

Anna broke eye contact as his scrutiny became too intense. “What’s what about?”

“This.” He gestured toward her. “Is this about yesterday?”

Anna wasn’t sure where to go with her plan. “Yesterday?” She feared her manner gave the impression of stupid instead of coy.

“Yes, yesterday. We had a moment, for lack of a better term. Is this some game?”

Anna straightened. “Game? What is that supposed to mean?” Her voice lost its teasing edge.

“It means that either you are trying to needle me or maybe … maybe you want something?”

Anna frowned. “Those are the only two explanations?”

Jonah considered for an instant. “Anna, you’re not interested in me, are you?”

Anna thumped her mug on the counter. “Of course not.” Color rose in her face.

“Anna, about yesterday. I didn’t mean to be unprofessional.” His apologetic manner unnerved her.

“You were not unprofessional,” Anna bit out. What a disaster. Was he going to say something kind? Anna didn’t think she could bear the embarrassment.

Jonah took her hand lightly in his. Her hand trembled, and Anna was sure he felt it. “Are you afraid?” He looked into her eyes. “Or aroused?”

Anna swayed as his calloused thumb stroked her palm. The lab seemed to shrink, the walls gathering close around them.

He tugged on her hand, bringing to his lips. He nipped her fingertip.

Anna struggled to remain impassive as her blood surged. She sensed she hadn’t fooled Jonah with her imperfect façade of calm.

A predatory masculine smile crossed his face. “I see.” He sucked her fingertip into his mouth.

So, what makes an alpha hero dangerous? Is it danger to the heart and emotions? Is it literal physical danger? Maybe the hero is a spy….or a police officer? Is it just an aura of confidence and an ability to handle whatever comes along? You tell me 🙂

Most of my stories have alpha type heroes. For the most part, what is at stake is the heart.

In my Mia’s Cop Craving series, the hero is a police officer named Rogan. He is definately a danger to Mia’s heart…but in the best possible way! Please enjoy the excerpt below.

Excerpt from Mia’s Cop Craving

“What happens next?” He wanted to hear the details.

“Well, it varies. Sometimes I’m restrained.”

“Like this?” He grabbed her wrists and stretched her arms out over her head, holding both wrists with one hand. With is other hand he roamed her body at will, stroking, caressing her soft skin.

Mia gasped and shivered. “Yes . . . sometimes he uses his hands. Sometimes he uses . . . other things.”

Rogan nibbled her ear. “What other things?”

“Well, handcuffs.”

“Really? Mmmm and what about you Mia? Do you want me to use handcuffs?”

Mia swallowed hard. Was she going to go for it? Yes. She nodded and Rogan let her go and got off the bed. He reached for his pants and the leather duty belt. He flipped open the handcuff case and removed the shiny, silver rings. He held them out for her inspection.

She nodded again, surrendering herself.

He opened the cuffs and crossed to her. “You have the perfect headboard for this.” He threaded the cuffs around one of the decorative metal bars. He took one hand and then the other closing the cuff around each of her delicate, narrow wrists in turn.

As the metal clicked shut, Mia trembled. Though she felt an innate sense of trust toward Rogan, she was truly at his mercy now.
