Tuesday's Tasty Teaser

Instead of teasing you with a bit of fiction today, I thought I'd introduce you to a recipe book created by my local writers group--Romance Authors of the Heartland.

Fork and Pen
 Authors--and their families--have to eat!

Join Romance Authors of the Heartland for a culinary journey from the quick and simple (perfect for those days when time is at a premium), to more involved dishes sure to wow your family and guests.

And celebrations? No Worries! There's plenty of sweets and libations in these pages to satisfy the most discerning of reader.

Our recipes include such delectable delights as Goat Cheese Mousse, Awesome Apple Salad, Whatever Swims By Chowda', The Best Coffee Cake Ever, Chicken Couscous, Sweet Potato Mash, Hummingbird Cake, and of course Apple Cider Sangria. We even have a couple of recipes for your canine friends!

I'll even share a recipe with you--although this one isn't in the book, but it is one of my favorites.

Cream Cheese Bacon Crescents

1 8 oz tub Chive and Onion Cream Cheese
3 Slices bacon--cooked and crumbled
2 tubes refrigerated crescent dinner rolls

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Mix cream cheese and bacon in a small bowl until well blended

Separate each tube of dough into 8 triangles. Cut each triangle in half lengthwise. Spread each triangle with 1 generous teaspoon of the cream cheese mixture. Roll up starting at the shortest edge of the triangle and roll toward the point. Place point side down on ungreased baking sheet.

Bake 12 - 15 minutes or until golden brown.

Makes 16 servings--2 rolls each.
