Debut of Mouthwatering Monday Recipes

Good morning and welcome to the debut of my Mouthwatering Monday collection of Romance Writing with a Twist recipes. Each Monday (fingers crossed!) I'll post a recipe specifically created for one of my books.

Today, I'll start with COCONUT CONCOCTION CAKE -- a delicious dessert (and family favorite!) based upon my paranormal romantic suspense THE COMING, a Dream Realm Award WINNER.

But first, here's a blurb of the novel, now available at Awe-Struck Publishing, Amazon, and other Internet outlets:

IMPOSSIBLE LOVE: After scattering her beloved grandfather’s ashes in the Caribbean, Larissa Parish is swept overboard and washes up on a deserted island. She comes face to face with a man who, most impossibly, is her grandfather’s cohort from World War II. Can she learn to fully give herself to this mouthwatering 40s hunk… and also figure a way to leave this outpost in the Bermuda Triangle?

DIFFERENT GENERATIONS: Army Air Force pilot, Jack Harrington, can’t believe his good luck when he spots Larissa in the waters by his desert island. Stranded for what he believes is five years, he thinks her daft because she seems to have forgotten World War II. Can he come to terms with the news that he’s a “1940s retread” and convince himself that Larissa could love him, no matter how “old” he is?


In my paranormal romantic suspense at Awe-Struck Publishing--2004 Dream Realm WINNER, THE COMING--coconuts are plentiful on the desert island. Larissa uses coconut shreds, tern eggs, goat milk, and ground nuts to create a mouthwatering concoction for Jack and his men. Here’s a scrumptious recipe that will make your mouth water too!

1 1/4 c. flour, sifted
1 1/2 c. sugar
3 t. baking powder
1 t. salt
