At my Aug. 27 “4 Years of Eyes on Me (& my Masters)” fourth-anniversary party on Facebook, we held a contest for one of four $50 Gift Cards and asked readers to bake or cook something from the recipe bonus section in my newly released Box Set: Rescue Me Saga, Books 1-3. To be eligible for the contest, they had to post a photo of what they made next to their e-reader.

Twelve entries were eligible for the random drawing and were posted by readers in North America, Europe, and Australia! The winner was from the UK. We’ve gotten permission to post these photos along with the comments made by each person who was eligible. Get your copy of the box set and cook something up (in the kitchen–or elsewhere in the house)!


Karla’s Arista: Florentine Pork Roast
Masters at Arms & Nobody’s Angel

On Aug. 31, my hubby accepted my challenge to make Karla’s Florentine pork roast recipe. Here are the pics I took (and since I wasn’t in a contest, I didn’t include the e-reader)! As I posted on Facebook: Mr. Ray made Karla’s Arista: Florentine Pork Roast recipe from the new Rescue Me Saga box set. Smells delightful! When I said I had to post pics, he said, “What if it doesn’t taste good?” I told him you all can’t taste the pictures. LOL I think he didn’t think garlic and pork sounded like a good combo. After all the grousing he did about making it, though, we all loved it, and he’s ready to make it again!

Monica Stillman Minestrone



Monica S.– “Yummy! So I found two things out while cooking with these recipes. 1) I get a perverse joy out of making the food and bringing them into my office for my boss (an attorney) and 2) It’s frowned upon to be drinking the wine while cooking with it. (I make my meals in the morning).”





Tracey Lutman Minestrone


Tracey L. – “I’m making the minestrone right now and partaking in a little of the wine. (Later) OMG, me and the hubs just ate two bowls apiece…. Soooo gooood! I grated fresh Romano to put on top. I never came across this recipe for Minestrone. It’s a keeper, my husband gave it the thumbs up, and it didn’t even have any meat!”
