REVIEW:
I made Pan-Fried Chicken and Rosemary Roast Potatoes.
The cookbook is split into seasons, and this recipe was the first in the Winter section that I had all the ingredients on hand.
Have to say, best fried chicken I have ever  had! Even the hubby and son agreed! The potatoes, however, were not such a hit. Seems I am the only one who likes rosemary. The men, not-so-much. The next time I make it, I will make my own roasted potatoes as they like them better. The chicken recipe is going to get used and worn out in my house though.
Can't wait to try some more too! 
I also love how the characters and stories from the Fool's Gold series are incorporated into the book. Fans of the series will really find it heartwarming.
So whether you are a fan of the series, the author or just recipes, this is a great find! I hope you will get a copy and compare recipes with me!

Never Let You Go by Chevy Stevens #EarlyReview (64)

The author of Still Missing targets her readership with a novel that hits all the notes they come to expect from her―and ratchets up the stakes even more. Lindsey Nash has left an abusive relationship and her ex-husband was sent to jail. She has started over with a new life, her own business, and a teenage daughter who needs her more than ever. When her husband is finally released, Lindsey believes she has cut all ties. There is no way he can ever find her and her daughter again. But she gets the sense that someone is watching her, tracking her every move. Her new boyfriend is threatened. Her home is invaded. Even her daughter is shadowed. Lindsey is convinced it's her ex-husband, even though he claims he is a different person and doesn't want to do her any harm. But can he really change? Is the one who wants her dead even closer to home than she thought?

As some of you may know, I love taking photos. Photography is a hobby of mine, but I often add some of my work to my walls. Recently, I was contacted by Canvas Champ, a company dedicated to making your photos come to life on canvas prints.


Since I had recently moved, the first thing to do was to walk around the place and see where a piece of art needed to be placed. Then it was about finding the perfect photo in my collection to hang there. Next, I was onto the website to start building the print.



Once you start, it will seem like there is too many options, but it's so easy to use. You choose the size, and within a few minutes you will be done and waiting for your art to show up.



The user interface is a simple design that you can easily get through with no hassle, even if you are not computer savvy a…
