Shellie & Alex’s Wine-y Cranberry Sauce

The ladies of Mustang Prairie love to celebrate all holidays and occasions–big and small–and a holiday totally dedicated to eating and drinking? Well they couldn’t resist coming up with a new twist on an old favorite!

Shellie: This recipe is strictly for the adult crowd! Think of it as kind of a mulled wine cranberry sauce because you’ll need much more than sugar and water for this delicious dish. Alex is on wine duty because she’s a far more competent drinker than I am but this recipe was a collaboration between me and my bestie…even if she can’t eat this yet!

Alex: You all know I think pretty much any dish can be improved upon with booze, and turkey day makes that doubly true. Who can deal with a packed house full of over-sexed senior citizens, matchmaking old ladies, a growing list of friends and Shirl, who is in a class of her own, without the aid of alcohol?

This year I have no choice but to endure it sober, which means I’m dedicated to making sure everyone else is as relaxed as possible. So, let’s get to cooking! Continue reading Shellie & Alex’s Wine-y Cranberry Sauce

Cordially Invited – LIVE on Amazon!!!

Cordially Invited is now LIVE and available in digital & paperback formats!


You are cordially invited…

After a mishap involving a stripper and a coffin, event planner Lucky Gould-Bang is fired for the third time in three months. When a position for Post Conviction Coordinator pops up at the Bureau of Prisons, Lucky jumps at the chance with no clue what it involves. Finding out she will be planning recently re-instated executions, Lucky finds herself dealing with an ambitious Governor, smarmy death industry executives, protesters and a spree murderer cum pastor on a regular basis, all while trying to do the Governor’s bidding by putting on ‘family friendly’ executions.

At the Governor’s request, to attend the execution of…

Madison Madigan is tired of everyone seeing her as Lil’ Maddie, First Granddaughter of the state of Illinois. She’s Governor now and she will do anything to win the office on her own merit, even if she has to rely on voters from the other party get there. She reinstated the death penalty over her Party’s wishes and now she’s determined to make it something everyone is talking about…and not because a run of the mill death by electrocution turned into a barbecue. Her key to winning is Pastor Bishop Parsons–will she commute his sentence or won’t she–now all she has to do is make a decision.

On this day at the following time…

Pastor Bishop Parsons doesn’t deny his sordid past. A former drug addict on Death Row for the spree murders of ten people. But twenty years into his sentence he is a reformed man; Pastor of the largest e-church in the country, fundraiser for the upper crust and media darling. He’s not ready to die and he’ll do anything he can to stop it…even invoking his religion.

Alex’s Drunk Smoothie

When it’s too hot to go out I always I have tons of fresh fruit on hand. Yeah, yeah I know I’m a health nut so fresh fruit is healthy and full of blah, blah, blah. But when the temperature gets in the upper 80’s and higher but you still want to drink–because it’s the best way to avoid heat related rage!–without sweat dripping down your face. At least I do.

So when the weather gets like this I like to whip up a batch of my famous Drunk Smoothies. You’ve never heard of them? Well they’re famous here in Mustang Prairie. You get all that good stuff that’s in fruit (including water) and an ice cold way to get your drink on!  Continue reading Alex’s Drunk Smoothie
