Cooking With Author Carole Brown!

Today we have author Carole Brown joining us to share about her new novel and a recipe!

Carole says, "Besides being a member and active participant of many writing groups, I enjoy mentoring beginning writers. I love to weave suspense and tough topics into my books, along with a touch of romance and whimsy, and I am always on the lookout for outstanding titles and catchy ideas. My husband and I reside in SE Ohio but have ministered and counseled nationally and internationally. Together, we enjoy our grandsons, traveling, gardening, good food, the simple life, and did I mention our grandsons?"

Carole's recipe she shares with us today is Caralynne Hayman’s Cherry Mountain Pie

Melt one stick of butter in round pan (I suppose you could use square, but I can’t see how that could improve the flavor!)

Pour thickened, sweetened cherries (you can use canned cherry pie filling, but really? Who doesn’t want the “real” thing? We’re not talking easy!) into the pan

Stir one cup sugar, 1 ½ cup of self-rising flour and ¾ cup milk together. Pour batter onto top of cherries.

Bake till brown 350 degrees F.

Carol says, "Caralynne received this recipe from my mother (LOL!). We children thought it was divine! The only problem (with me) was: I wasn’t crazy about cherries so I always requested, no cherries (the juice was okay) and my patient mother dipped out nice chewy crust with lots of juice onto my plate and topped it with ice cream. Hmmm. Delicious."

About Carole's book, The Redemption of Caralynne Hayman:

How far would YOU go to avenge a daughter’s cruel death? Cara is considered rebellious and inappropriate to befriend. Dayne is the apple of Elder Simmons’ eye—until he takes a stand against their teachings. Can his prayers and love reach Cara and show her the way to redemption? Will Cara realize God’s love and forgiveness before she goes too far?

The Redemption of Caralynne Hayman is a novel of hope shining through the darkness with strong elements of suspense and romance. This novel was a semifinalist in the Genesis contest and is receiving raving reviews! Release date was October 21, 2013 from the Lighthouse Publishing of the Carolinas.

Nice to see another side of Carole. I can't eat anything with cane sugar because of an allergy but it sure looks good.

Sorry to be so late in answering! I know, Michelle, I'm crazy, but never liked cherries for some reason, altho I do better now than when younger. :)

It is good, Janis, and my mother's always was delicious (even w/out cherries in my serving. lol)

Thanks, Rose, hope you get a chance to try both.

Wishing you all a wonderful 2014!
