Today The Pink Heart Society is thrilled to have Harlequin author Barbara White Daille here with us to share a quick and delicious recipe.
Cowboys and Chocolate
Thanks to the Pink Heart Society for inviting me back to talk about some of my favorite topics: cowboy heroes, food, and of course, chocolate.
Quick and easy recipes are very welcome at our house.
When I'm on deadline, fancy fixin's go by the wayside, trumped by convenience and speed of preparation and cleanup. Especially when the deadline's closing in, I'll rely on a dish that involves throwing ingredients together into one pot. The slow-cooker is my friend.
And, as always when I'm writing, there has to be something chocolate at hand. Chocolate gets me started when I'm facing a blank page and keeps me going when the words are a struggle. It coaxes my muse out to play.
A plain candy bar will do. A few Hershey's Kisses satisfy me. But sometimes I need something with a little more substance.
That's when I break out my secret weapon: the easiest cookie recipe you'll ever find. If you often need a chocolate fix and you like your cookies on the chewy kind, this is the recipe for you.
Chocolate Fudge Cookies
1 package of Devil's Food Cake Mix
2 large eggs
1/2 cup oil
1/2 cup chocolate chips (semi-sweet or dark, your choice)
1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
In Court Me, Cowboy, my heroine, Marissa, is a cordon bleu chef. And if Gabe has his way, the new wife who ran off after their honeymoon but has just returned is going to make mealtimes on his ranch a heck of a lot more interesting for him and his cowboys!
