I’ll be giving away a Smashwords download of my mystery/romantic suspense novel Sink or Swim, about a reality show contestant who attracts a stalker after returning to her normal life as a personal trainer. Each participating blog will also be giving away individual prizes. Be sure to leave comments on each blog post to enter – that’s also how you’ll be entered for the big giveaway. The more blogs you visit and leave comments on, the more entries you’ll have for the Kindle Fire/Nook and gift card.

Since summer will be upon us in a couple short months, I thought I’d share a quick and easy Chinese Chicken Wing recipe that’s ideal for barbecues. It is so simple, yet people rave about this recipe. Many friends assumed that the secret ingredient was Teriyaki sauce and then told me in dismay that their chicken wings didn’t taste the same as mine when they attempted to make them. It’s not Teriyaki sauce – the secret is brown sugar and soy sauce, and the chicken needs to be marinated overnight.

For a party – 4-6 packages of party wings (the small wingettes)
1 bottle lite soy sauce
1 box of brown sugar

If you’re just cooking these for dinner for your family, then you can cut the recipe in half.

Mix sauce and brown sugar. Cover wings and marinate overnight. Turn once. Cover bottom of cookie sheet with foil and shortening. Take wings out of marinade and cook at 350 for about an hour to an hour and a half, depending on how many wings there are and how big they are. Cook on a low shelf.

Voila! I hope you enjoy them.

    Spring is bloom and I love the flowers that come along with it. The warm weather, the happy people, the blossoming of roses and sunflowers. Sunflowers have to be my favorite flowers. They are so happy reaching towards the sky. Their petals are like eyelids opening wide to look upon the great blue sky above. My mother makes the best cheesy cauliflower soup that I adore in the springtime. It’s thick and creamy and I could easily eat gallons of it!
    Anyway, thanks for the giveaway!
