Spring brings with it a wonderful sense of renewal and I’m ready to welcome the new season. I wanted to share the cover of my May Release, THE DOCTOR’S RECOVERY as this cover puts me in the mood for all things Spring.
Before I can stop to smell the roses (and dig out my allergy medicine), I need to meet my March 1st deadline. And once I hand in my manuscript, there’s a bit of cleaning up to do in my office (and if I’m honest, the rest of the house). I suppose that means I’ll be rounding up the family for some Spring cleaning very soon. There’s something refreshing about tucking away the winter blankets, cozy sheets and jackets then replacing all that with beach towels, running shorts and flip flops.
But I can already hear the groans from my daughters-cleaning doesn’t rank on a teenager’s priority list. Although to be fair, I’ve come to realize my teenagers’ priority lists are relatively simple: food, sleep, reading, all things social media related and more sleep. Perhaps if I turn cleaning the house into a series of social media posts, I might garner more enthusiasm from my daughters.
However, I do have a back-up plan: desserts. As I mentioned, food ranks on my teenagers’ priority lists, especially the homemade baked kind. (And just to make things more interesting in our house, hormones have been increasing the cravings for all things sugar recently. I’ll save the mood swings for another post 😊). I think I’ve mentioned before that I like to bake after I meet a deadline and my family likes my new habit too.
In honor of Spring’s impending arrival, here are a few recipes I’ve added to my March baking list (aka bribery list for cleaning without whining). Oh and I’m happy to share my desserts if you find yourself in my neighborhood. And please, if you have a favorite recipe, share it. 😊

Here’s the blurb for my May 2018 release, THE DOCTOR’S RECOVERY:
When a doctor and a filmmaker reconnect . . . just who is healing whom?
Two years ago, Dr. Wyatt Reid shared an unforgettable goodbye kiss with Mia Fiore. Now a scuba diving accident brings the daredevil documentary filmmaker into his San Francisco ER. Could this be their shot at a real relationship? But Wyatt, haunted by family tragedy, saves lives, and Mia risks hers every day. Can they find the way to a future on both their terms?
