Welcome to the Authors in Bloom Hop!

Welcome to the Authors in Bloom Hop!  I am excited to host and be part of this year.   The hop runs from April 10th to  the 20th.  We will have an exciting giveaway here.  This giveaway will be open to US Residents only.  I am also going to share a recipe here.

The recipe I am sharing is one from my childhood and a favorite.  The recipe is for Lemon Torte:

There are four layers: 

First layer is :   One stick butter melted, l cup flour, and ¼ cup chopped pecans.  Bake 15 minutes at 350 degrees, and let cool completely .You can also avoid this step by using a gramcracker crust.

Second layer:  Blend eight ounce package of cream cheese, one cup powdered sugar and one cup cool whip. 

Third layer:  Fix two packages of instant lemon pudding mix and only use 3 ½ cups of milk.  Once the pudding has set then add to the pan with the rest of the layers. 

The final layer is  cool whip on top.

Here is the prize from me:
Two books that have appeared right here at Writer’s Corner: 
The Memory Thiefby Emily Colin:   Maddie warns her husband Aidan that he shouldn’t go on this latest climb.   There might be severe consequences.   Aidan chooses to go on the climb anyway.  While on the climb something happens.  Over in another part of the country Nicholas is recovering from a car accident, but does not remember anything.  Nicholas wakes up with someone else’s memories.   Maddie and Nicholas both have premonitions about what happened to Aidan.   Are there any attachments between Nick and Maddie?   Will Maddie survive her latest trial?

The AfterWife by Gigi Levangie Grazer:    Hannah Bernal loves life, loves her husband, and their daughter.   One morning John leaves to run an errand but does not come back.  Hannah is in shock and immediately calls the Grief Team.   They are her friends which consist of her superior Jay, Chloe the blogger, and Aimee the middle aged actress.  They are always at her side ready to offer advice and drama.  Hannah loves and depends on her team but she also has developed a special talent.   Where will Hannah’s life turn?   Will she survive her husband’s death?
