One of our favorite family recipes is oatmeal raisin cookies.
Years ago, when my children were young, I loved to bake.
When I decided to pursue writing professionally, I found
myself with less time for baking and cooking.
My husband, in good nature mind you, said to me one day,
“I guess I better start learning how to cook so we don’t starve
to death”. I laughed as he jokingly frowned. He did learn how
to cook and does it without complaint. I don’t know what I would
have done if he hadn’t shown me the support he has given
me through my writing journey. I always knew he was there to
take care of the kids and household, while I fervently worked on
learning the craft of writing.
Below is our oatmeal raisin cookie recipe...if you get the urge to bake.
1 package of Crisco Baking Sticks, softened
1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
½ cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon
½ teaspoon salt
3 cups quick oats
2 cups raisins
Join me for my next “Coffee with Lianna”, which will post on July 5, 2019.
Welcome to my first official blog on my new website! I’m so happy and grateful to now have a site to call home. I hope you will enjoy this little sanctuary designed for us to hang out and immerse ourselves in the love of reading romance, along with other fun things.
I plan on posting the first Friday morning of each month. I’ll share my thoughts along with other tidbits. So, grab a cup of coffee and share a quiet moment with me.
Here is a picture of the first romance novel I wrote, Secrets of the Heart. It took me awhile to finish and taught me a lot about the craft of writing. I hold a great deal of respect for writers who dedicate large amounts of time to writing and improving their craft. Though my first book is collecting dust, I have been busy on a three-book series called The Runaway Outlaws.
Currently, I’m going through the revision process with my editor on book #1, The Bounty’s Reward. I really love this series and look forward to publishing book #1 on May 5, 2020.
Join me next month when I share one of my favorite recipes.
Wishing you all the best!
