A couple of weeks ago, I ended up making banana bread. I had some butter and banana that were about to get old, so I had to get rid of them. As usual, I browned the butter. There is just no other way to do banana bread.
With the remaining batter, I used in muffin tins to make banana bread muffin thingys.
I just hope it tasted okay after it’s been chilled and all a couple of days later. I guess some people like it chilled too. I, personally, prefer it when it’s fresh out of the oven and still warm. Yum!
Writing is such a solitary act. It’s both a blessing and a curse. Brian already made some suggestions for changes in my book. I know that once I start the editing process, I will be making a ton of changes anyhow. If we did collaborate, the story is likely to take a whole other direction than if I am to write it solo. That could be a good thing or a bad thing. I don’t know. But for this first book, I have decided to make it a solo act. We will work on the next one together, possibly. Thank goodness he understands.
Remember how I said I’d be so embarrassed in having certain people read my book because of the….AHEM…steamy parts and such? Yeah, well I couldn’t get myself to sharing those scenes with Brian. Lol. He requested to see more, but I just can’t!
Anyways, kudos to Mary! “Wallbanger” was great and can’t wait to read the rest of the trilogy. The book is full of “lol” moments. It is more funny than steamy (in the beginning anyways). There is a lot of food fun in the story that will put the reader in craving mode. From the foodgasmic delights in Spain to the therapeutic baking sessions in the main character’s home kitchen, I was nearly drooling with each scene. And I know that Sandra read the book in one or two sittings. She was hooked! Mary and Sandra will be my go to gals for reading recommendations.
One of the notable goodies in the story was zucchini bread!
OMG I was totally craving zucchini bread after. And just my luck, I still had a little bit more of the butter to get rid of before they go bad, so making zucchini bread was the only logical thing to do. Of course, I browned the butter for these too. Craving zucchini bread is just the tip of the iceberg. The characters in the story make and eat so many delicious things all throughout. Gosh, I hope that the second and third books are just as filled with delicious indulgences.
I was inspired to have the pet character play a more vital role in the story. And hey…Jindos are my favorite breed, so why not, right? Besides, they are so full of personality and like the best breeds in the world (yes, I am biased). The reader won’t help but to fall in love with him/her (fingers crossed) the way I have with the breed. They are freaking smart as hell and sooo cute! Until recently, I had no idea that they weren’t as well know to the mainstream public here in the states. They get mistaken for Shibas (which seems to be better known here) all the time. But yeah, I really really love Jindos and think they deserve a character role in my book. The end.
