Ombré Punch

When you need a beverage you can
serve to all ages that will bring a little “Wow!” to your table, try this easy
to make punch. The trick is to not stir it!

We like it best with orange juice
as the base, but you can also use grapefruit juice for a different flavor.

Makes Six Servings.


3 cups orange juice, chilled
Grenadine syrup


Place ice in the bottom of the
glasses. Add ½ cup of juice to each glass then carefully pour one teaspoon of
grenadine syrup in each glass. That’s it! Told you it was easy. Just make sure
you do not stir the drink or it will lose the lovely ombré design.

If you prefer grapefruit juice to
orange juice, substitute it and add a splash of Sprite or 7-Up to each glass
before you add the grenadine syrup.

Chocolate Chex Trees

These yummy and
adorable trees are so simple to make and a great project if you have kids at
home who need something to do. Set them on a disposable plate, foil-wrapped
piece of cardboard, or a large sugar cookie wrapped in cellophane for

3 cups Chex Chocolate cereal
6 pretzel sticks (the thick kind,
made for dipping)
½ cup peanut butter
¼ cup Nutella
3 tablespoons butter, softened
1 cup powdered sugar


Mix the peanut but­ter, Nutella,
but­ter, and pow­dered sugar in a bowl.

On whatever you plan to use for a
base, mold the peanut butter mixture around the pretzel stick until it stands
upright and forms a slight cone shape.

Hold it steady by using the tip of
the pret­zel as a han­dle and begin insert­ing pieces of cereal into the peanut
but­ter mix­ture in a sym­met­ri­cal pat­tern around the stick.
You can tip the cereal pieces up
or down, depending on your personal preference.

Add more cereal pieces, stag­ger­ing
them as you move upward, until you get near the top.

For the top of the tree, use
broken pieces or cut them in half to get the smaller scale of branches near the

Use two pieces of cereal back to
back to form the top.

Dust with powdered sugar.

Makes 6 trees

Christmas Countdown Blitz It's a Mall World After All by Janette Rallison Day 10

USA Today, bestselling author, Janette Rallison/ CJ Hill writes books because writing is much more fun than cleaning bathrooms. Her avoidance of housework has led her to writing thirty novels that have sold over 1,000,000 print copies and have been on many reading and state lists. Her books are fantasy, sci-fi, and romantic comedy because hey, there is enough angst in real life, but theres a drastic shortage of humor, romance and hot guys who fight dragons. She lives in Chandler, Arizona with her husband, kids, and enough cats to classify her as eccentric.

If they gave out diplomas for what you learn at the mall, Charlotte could graduate with honors. Ever since she got a job as a perfume spritzer, she's become an expert on all things shopping relatedoh, and she's getting really good at spying on her classmates who hang out there. What she hasn't mastered is the art of convincing her best friend Brianna to dump her boyfriend Bryant. After Charlotte caught him flirting with a mysterious, blond-haired girl, she knows he's up to no good. Worse still, now Brianna is taking his side. Charlotte must prove who is right, once and for all, and that means catching Bryant in the act. This is where her mall roaming skills will come in handy. Perfume anyone?

Fans of Sophie Kinsella will love this book!

Top Ten List:

1) I've been writing books since I was six years old. (They weren't actually good, but I was writing them.) 

2) In high school, I was voted most likely to constantly lose my car keys. And my car. (Ok, I'm making that up, but that's what I should have been voted) 

3) I have five children. (Who've given me lots of material for my YA books.) 

4) I'm married to an electrical engineer. (Which means he's given me lots of material for my romances. Ha, just kidding. You know what engineers are like.) 

5) I have enough cats to classify me as a crazy cat lady. (I'm just too soft-hearted to turn away strays. Cats can tell.) 

6) My son is TheOdd1sOut, which means he's way more famous than I am. 

7) I've written 30 books. 

8) I live in Arizona. (My oldest daughter didn't know how to work an umbrella when she went away to college and had to have a stranger show her how to shut the thing.) 

9) I have no sense of direction, so I pretty much hate those corn mazes. 

10) I'm working on a cowboy romance with some of my writer best friends.

dancer Jamie has never fit in with his loud and brash blue-collar
family. They grudgingly accepted him being gay, but when Jamie’s
father finds him wearing one of his sister’s dresses, Jamie ends on
his best friend’s sofa. An ad for a female live-in nanny position
in rural Kansas seems like a Christmas gift from above and a solution
to his homelessness. Never mind that Jamie knows nothing about farm
life. Or cows. Or kids. At least he knows how to rock a dress.

Franklin—yes, his parents are crazy like that—is a dairy farmer
in desperate need of female assistance. At least that were his
mother’s last words before she left for Florida with her new
husband. All Ben knows is raising cattle. Now he’s tasked with
raising his niece Charlie as well. The last thing Ben expected when
he placed an ad for a nanny was to develop confusing feelings for the
beautiful Janie.

 With a little Christmas magic, the help
of a pet cow, and a mischievous little girl, two men might find the
true meaning of home, family, and love.

their HEAs.

My Name is Sam...And Heaven is Still Shining Through by Joe Siccardi

Title: My Name is Sam...And Heaven is Still Shining Through
Author: Joe Siccardi
Genre: Christian-themed fictional memoir
Release Date: August 25, 2019

Sit down with a cup of coffee or a nice wine and visit with Sam as she shares a lifetime of memories in this new Christian-themed fictional memoir. My Name Is Sam ... and Heaven Is Still Shining Through is a follow-up to the break out novella, Heaven Shining Through. It introduces Sam (Samantha), her family and friends in more detail than the original, and picks up where the novella left off. I hope readers get to know Sam as a friend, a life long friend. Share her life ... complete with some drama, some humor, some heart tugs. Just a free-willed suburban Jersey girl trying to figure out this journey called life with the presence of God in an ordinary life as the underlying theme.

Kate stayed with me after the funeral to temporarily close the house. We knew we would have to come back to make arrangements to sell the house and make final decisions about what stays in the family, who gets what, making a donation pile and what has served its purpose and usefulness. We took a final inventory as we covered the furniture, adjusted the heat, and set the alarm.

On the ride back to Ohio, I thanked Kate for staying behind and helping. She politely responded, “Wouldn’t have had it any other way, Mom. You know, we girls have to stick together.”

“Thanks Sweetie.”

It was small talk for awhile, but as we merged onto the Ohio Turnpike with the sun starting to set, Kate turned to me. “Mom, can I ask you something?”

“Sure! Anytime! Anything!”

“Mom, I’ve never seen you at such peace. I mean, usually comments like Father Pat’s would have made you …” her voice trailed before adding, “… uncomfortable.”

I smiled. “You’re right, honey. Normally, being singled out like that would have made me squirm. I may have even challenged some of those comments. But I sat with Grandma over those last hours and I knew, I just knew, Father Pat was spot on.”

“I’m glad you made peace with Grandma. I know you didn’t have such a great relationship with her.”

“It wasn’t so bad. We had our ups and downs, kinda of like you and me.”

“Downs?” protested Kate in mock surprise. “We had a great relationship growing up!”

“Yes, we did, but there were those times … like when you wanted to date Billy … and stay out all night with your friends at 14 … or when I caught you smoking in the basement …”

“That wasn’t me,” Kate mockingly interrupted. “That was JR. I was just holding the cigarette for him.”

“Yeah. Yeah. Yeah,” I said. “That’s why I love you guys!”

“That’s why we loved you too, Mom. You were always so cool.”

I squeezed her hand as we focused on the road ahead. There was a storm brewing ahead of us, but all of a sudden a single ray of sunshine found its way through the clouds.

Kate reached out her hand, pointing to the sky. “Look, Mom. Heaven is shining through!”

“You remembered. Yes. Yes. That’s heaven shining through! Isn’t it hopeful?”
