Today I am very happy to have the talented Allyon Lint on the blog. You are most welcome, Allyson.
Thanks so much for having me today, Daisy. If your readers are willing to stick with me until the end of the post, there are details about a couple of awesome giveaways I’m holding (and you can enter both here) to celebrate my new book launch, and links to more posts like this one.
I pondered for while what to write my post about, and it hit me. The holidays are about friends, family, and food. Fortunately for me, Archer, the hero in my new release, Learning New Tricks, is a fantastic cook. I mean, dude makes pancakes from scratch… just because.
Keep in mind though, he’s been a bachelor and living on his own for a while. So when I asked him about his favorite dishes to make, some of his answers were a little… unusual. I’ve tried them all, though, and they’re all tasty.
For instance, this one:
Turkey, Bacon, Lettuce Wraps
This is simple to make, and so good, and depending on the ingredients you use, friendly to almost any diet.
– 1 head of romaine lettuce
– 1/2 pound bacon (or turkey bacon, if you’re worried about fat intake)
– 1/2 pound sliced turkey
– 1/2 pound cheese (optional)
– Your favorite dipping sauce (ranch dressing, honey mustard, or whatever else strikes your fancy)
– Clean the lettuce, and cut so it’s in individual leaves
– Prepare the bacon – I like to fry it and leave it not-crispy so it rolls better, but it’s up to you
– Poll one piece of bacon, one slice of turkey, and half a slice of cheese in a lettuce leaf
– Dip in your favorite sauce and consume 😀
Archer likes to serve all the ingredients separately, like a meat/cheese tray, so everyone can roll their own however they like it.
If you’d like to meet Archer, and find out what he does besides cook, make sure you check out Learing New Tricks.
Archer should be focusing on how to keep his comic book shop from financially crashing and burning in an epic way. However, when his sexy-as-hell best friend and Sunday-afternoon-movie buddy, Tori, asks him to teach her how to keep emotions out of sex, he welcomes the distraction.
Tori couldn’t ask for a better best friend than Archer. He respects her fandom, and he lets her sell her custom-made costumes in his store. Even better, he’s willing to give her a hands-on demonstration of how to keep love and sex separate. Experience has taught her not to fall for a guy who’s as infatuated with an ex-girlfriend as Archer is, so she’s already got the no-love bit covered.
With each new lesson, the line between the physical and emotional blurs a little more. Can they let go of their pasts—and learn a few new tricks along the way—or will they lose their friendship and budding relationship for good?
I’m giving away a signed print copy of Holding Her Close (Bits & Bytes, #0), and I’ll even ship it internationally, to one person who comments today on Daisy’s blog.
I’m giving away a $10 Amazon gift card, and copies of Conflict of Interest (Bits & Bytes, #1), and Toeing the Line (Bits & Bytes, #2) to one person who visits during my blog tour. Each time you comment on another post is another entry, so if the recipes aren’t enough to entice you, make sure you leave a comment below, and visit all my other generous hosts as well.
