Are you all Christmas partied out? I nearly am, although I have to say it’s been fun and there’s still more to come. Speaking of more to come, this week on Friday Feast I introduce a fab new author who’s sharing a dessert to die for, but first, brace yourself… yes, it’s Us Heins Weren’t Meant To Play Golf Weekly.
Thanks to not too much buffoonery on the golf course last week (unless you count that really ugly duffed ball in the water shot on the 17th that I’m still trying to wipe from memory, and some highly incompetent putting), I managed to shave half a stroke off my handicap. Methinks the golfing gods are teasing me again but we shall see. Perhaps a triumph approacheth? Stay tuned!
And now tune in even more for this week’s Friday Feast guest, Australian romantic suspense author Suzanne Brandyn. Born on the edge of Australia’s outback, Suzanne has taken her knowledge and empathy for this amazing land, her love of romance and delight in a good thrill, and created books filled with strong characters and vivid landscapes.
Her latest release is Cold Fear. Check it out…
As the police widen their futile search, Macy struggles to pick up the pieces of an unimaginable life. Urged to take a break she heads to an isolated cabin with a girlfriend to recuperate so she can continue searching, only to face her worst nightmare— times ten.
Trapped by a man she believed dead, he demands she play a game.
She runs, he hunts. There is no place to hide.
Wow, doesn’t Cold Fear sound amazing? Well, thanks to the magic of the internet you can own a copy right now with just a couple of clickety-clicks. Visit amazon.com or amazon.com.au, hit that buy button and copy will be on its way to your Kindle reader or Kindle reading app in seconds.
Loaded up? Good. Now prepare to die! (In the nicest possible way, of course)
Good morning, Cathryn. I am thrilled to be here. Thank you for having me.
It’s a great time of year here in Australia, with summer about to carve up the landscape and Christmas around the corner. It’s a time for barbeques, outdoor parties and celebrations. There is not a year that goes by when Death by Chocolate doesn’t hit my outdoor area. A “to die for desert,” just like our heroes in our novels, something we all can’t get enough of. 🙂
Wait until you try it. I give it a good go, although at times my palate doesn’t take to one single ingredient… Can you pick which one? The answer could win you copy of my latest release Cold Fear. 🙂
Death by Chocolate
- Two Sarah Lee chocolate cakes. (You can bake two choc cakes if you so desire. As long as they are chocolate.
- Two tubs of chocolate mousse.
- Two Cadbury Flake chocolate bars.
- One tub of cream.
- Wash and cut strawberries in half.
- Beat cream and add a little caster sugar to sweeten.
- If using frozen choc cake, defrost.
- Place slices of chocolate cake into bottom of bowl. Press down to organise in a neat fashion.
- Add one layer of thickened cream.
- Add one layer of chocolate mousse.
- Add one layer of strawberries.
- Repeat this until you are at the top of your dish, finishing off with a layer of rich thickened cream, strawberries, and finely grate the Flakes over the top.
Yum. Perfect for barbeques, and/or formal dishes. The secret is in what dish you toss it all in. Fancy china, a glass bowl, or a bright plastic outdoorsy dish for barbeques. It’s a hit for all occasions.
Wella. To die for all right. Lol. Death By Chocolate. There’s no better way to go. Enjoy.
Question: Which ingredient of Death By Chocolate don’t I eat much of?
I like it, but my tastebuds have a hard time adjusting, although my brain says yes, yes, yes. Lol. Guess correctly and you could win a copy of Cold Fear. 🙂 It’s easy peasy, seeing I’m so not the norm. 🙂
I don’t know, you Friday Feast guests are determined to make everyone fat! But surely in this case it has to be worth it. Your Death By Chocolate looks absolutely divine, Suzanne.
Now, my Feasters, being a super-lovely guest, Suzanne has kindly offered a giveaway. You can win yourself a Kindle ebook copy of Cold Fear. But you’re going to have to work for it. Guess correctly which ingredient in Death By Chocolate Suzanne can’t eat much of and you’ll go into the draw to win.
Giveaway closes midnight Tuesday AEST, 17th December 2013. Open internationally. Rah!
Pssst. If you’d like an opportunity to win a $25 Amazon voucher, Suzanne has a giveaway running on her Facebook page. So toddle on over and get “liking”.
