Greetings, food lovers! I’m going to share with you one of the food dishes in my Regency romance, The Sweetest Touch (book 2 in my series, Sons of Worthington). The recipe I’m sharing is:
CHICKEN AND DUMPLINGS
1 ½ cups milk
1 cup frozen peas and carrots (I actually use the mixed veggies)
1 cup cooked, cut-up chicken
1 can (10 ¾ ounces) condensed creamy chicken soup
1 cup pancake mix
1/3 cup milk
Paprika, if desired.
Heat 1 ½ cups of milk, peas and carrots, chicken and soup in large pan. Stir frequently until boiling. Stir pancake mix and 1/3 cup milk together until doughy. Drop dough by spoonfuls into boiling chicken mixture. Sprinkle with Paprika. Turn heat to low. Cook uncovered for 10 minutes, then cover with lid and cook another ten minutes.
Here’s the blurb from my story, The Sweetest Kiss.
Louisa wakes from a deep heavy fog, surrounded by strangers and horrified to discover she's been the sole victim of a terrible buggy accident. Worse... she remembers nothing.
Trevor Worthington, Duke of Kenbridge, can’t trust women. Yet after nearly killing the amnesiac Louisa, he has little choice but to open his home to her. His heart softens to the straggly woman in beggars garb as he strives to help her regain her memory. As proof of Louisa's scars, both physical and those lurking beneath the surface, come to light, Trevor finds himself more and more drawn to the mysterious woman. However he is hesitant to enter another nightmarish entanglement like his first marriage.
Louisa is all too happy to accept employment in the Duke's household though it quickly becomes apparent she doesn't fit in at all! For starters she speaks French and has no skills to speak of. Bits and pieces of conflicting memories flash through her mind, lending more confusion to the puzzle of her life. Fortunately the duke proves ever patient with her myriad of mistakes and Louisa finds herself falling in love with the kind, brooding man. As their budding relationship progresses from improper to scandalous Louisa's memory begins to return. Dare she tell Trevor the horrible truths of her past? That she belongs to an evil man known only as Macgregor.
As the heartbreaking facts of Louisa's past are exposed and decade old questions come to light, will the truth keep these lovers from happiness? Will Trevor be able to give love another chance? Or will Louisa's sweet touch prove yet another forgotten memory...
