GREETINGS TO ALL “THOUGHTS ON THIS ‘n THAT” BLOG FOLLOWERS!
The HOLIDAYS are fast approaching and we’ve decided to do something a little different. Over the next few weeks, we’re going to feature some of our favorite authors and find out what they like best about the HOLIDAYS and we’ll also hear all about their latest book projects.
We’ve “known” Dee DeTarsio for years and have always been delighted when reading her novels. Her romantic comedies and magical realism always surprises and send us straight to a nice fluffy chair, with a cuppa. Her new romantic comedy, GINGER KRINKLES is just the book for Holidays – and it includes a simply delicious recipe for yummy “ginger krinkles,” which will be tasty with our cuppa.
‘Tis the season to read jolly!
Award-winning novel–including the award-winning “Ginger Krinkles,” a Christmas Cookie recipe, is perfect for holiday cookie parties and exchanges!
Ginger Krinkles is crossing her fingers that this holiday season will be extra special, for once. She lost her job in San Diego and dreads moving back home to Ennui, Ohio, where she’s convinced she will end up like her mean ol’ grandmother (God rest her soul). Ginger has always been a holiday-hater. But she has a secret. Make that two. If you buy the first one, maybe it will be easier to unwrap the second: either Ginger is an elf, or there really is magic to be found in an old cookie recipe.
We asked Dee some questions about the upcoming Holidays and you might be surprised what we learned.
CR: So, what is your favorite Holiday?
DD: The day AFTER Halloween! Because then you can embrace the next two months getting ready for the Holidays. I’m also pretty fond on January 2nd.
CR: Favorite present you’ve ever given?
DD: While no one likes the stress of shopping for the perfect gift and especially on deadlines, my favorite presents are the ones that happen organically along the way, little gifts that remind me of a special friend.
CR: Favorite gift you’ve received?
DD: An “eclectic” stars and moon bracelet that my son bought at his first carnival with tickets he had to earn. He was so excited to give it to me.
CR: Favorite Holiday music?
DD: Jewel’s “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer” …. and old time classics like, “Baby It’s Cold Outside” to “White Christmas.”
CR: Favorite Holiday meal and/or dessert?
DD: “Ginger Krinkles” which you’ll find the recipe in my new novel, GINGER KRINKLES.
CR: Message/wishes for 2018?
DD: Happy Holiday and may you enjoy all the “little gifts” that come your way.
Thank you Dee and we all look forward to reading GINGER KRINKLES and baking some of those ginger krinkles. I’m officially OFF of my diet! It’s the Holidays http://www.deedetarsio.com
