What’s Cooking Wednesday with N.J. Walters
Here at Entangled, we like to read.
(Bet you would never have guessed that.)
So we also love quick-n-easy recipes that free up more time for us to indulge in our favorite past time.
Each week we’re sharing some of our favorite recipes to help you find a few extra minutes in your day to enjoy your next favorite book!
This week: Apple Crisp for One with our special guest,
Drakon’s Promise author N.J. Walters!
Who tried it: N.J. Walters, author of Drakon’s Promise
Why she likes it: I recently discovered a recipe I love—Apple Crisp for One. It’s a perfect treat when you’re alone and curled up with a good book. Or you can double it if you want to share it with someone special.
Apple Crisp for One
2 tablespoons of brown sugar
2 tablespoons quick-cooking oats
1 tablespoon of flour
1/8 teaspoon of cinnamon
1 tablespoon of butter
Peel and thinly slice apple. Place in a small baking dish.
In a small bowl, combine brown sugar, quick-cooking oats, flour, and cinnamon. Sprinkle mixture over fruit and then dot with butter.
Place in a 375 degree oven for 25 minutes OR microwave on high for 2 ½ minutes or until fruit is tender.
(I used a couple of tablespoons of an oatmeal/ancient grains instant cereal—the kind you just add boiling water to. It was delicious.)
With all that extra time not spent in the kitchen, what’s N.J. currently writing?
I am putting the finishing touches on Drakon’s Prey, book #2 in my Blood of the Drakon series. It releases on April 24th and I can’t wait for you all to read it!
Check out N.J.’s current release, Drakon’s Promise right now for only 99¢!
Darius Varkas is a drakon. He’s neither human nor dragon.
He’s also the target of an ancient order who want to capture all drakons for their blood. When fresh, a drakon’s blood can cure any illness and prolong a human’s life, and the Knights will stop at nothing to get it.
When librarian Sarah Anderson stumbles across a rare book belonging to the Knights of the Dragon, she’s quickly thrust into a dangerous world of secrets and shifters and things she never would have believed possible. When the Knights realize Sarah has a secret of her own, she becomes just as much a target as Darius. Her scary dragon shifter just might be her best chance at survival.
Then, be sure to pre-order Book #2, Drakon’s Prey!
Valeriya Azarov turned her back on the family business to write and illustrate children’s books. But with a sister who leads the Knights of the Dragons, it’s impossible to get away from the secret society whose mission is to destroy and enslave dragons. When information falls into her hands along with the opportunity to save at least one of the ancient creatures, she can’t turn away any longer.
When a woman moves into the cabin above Tarrant Cooper’s secret underground lair, he’s both suspicious and intrigued. He hasn’t lasted four thousand years being careless, so when he suspects her of being a part of the Knights, the plan is to kidnap her and find out how much the organization knows about him and his brothers.
He’s drawn to Valeriya, but trusting her could get him killed. Even if she’s a pawn in the war between drakons and Knights, giving her his heart would mean forever.
Once upon a time N.J. had the idea that she would like to quit her job at the bookstore, sell everything she owned, leave her hometown, and write romance novels in a place where no one knew her. And she did. Two years later, she went back to the bookstore and her hometown and settled in for another seven years. One day she gave notice at her job on a Friday morning. On Sunday afternoon, she received a tentative acceptance for her first erotic romance novel and life would never be the same. N.J. has always been a voracious reader, and now she spends her days writing novels of her own. Vampires, werewolves, dragons, time-travelers, seductive handymen, and next-door neighbors with smoldering good looks—all vie for her attention. It’s a tough life, but someone’s got to live it.
