"Wedded Bliss" It's Happending!

 

Book 3.5 of the Cornwall & Redfern Mystery series

Universal Buy Link

It’s happening, and author, Gloria Ferris said....you’re invited!

After three mystery stories crammed with blackmail, poisonings, graveyard theft, arms dealing, gunfights, and more than a few suspicious deaths, Bliss Moonbeam Cornwall and Police Chief Neil Redfern have given up the struggle of denying their love. On this steamy, summer day, they’re tying the knot.

Like the preceding novels, WEDDED BLISS provides plenty of laughs, including a drunken cousin, a foul-mouthed parrot, missing underwear, and a suspicious platter of deviled eggs. Not to mention something is off about the shrimp. Since this is Bliss we’re talking about, an old cemetery plays a crucial part.

While Bliss is encasing herself in a too-tight wedding gown, Neil is alone in a motel room across town eyeballing his braid-covered dress uniform and wondering if he’ll pass out from the heat. Both are minutes away from facing dark echoes of the past that threaten to prevent their happy future.

Readers of the Cornwall & Redfern Mysteries will recognize the guests who gather to ensure the wedding is special for Bliss and Neil. Old friends and old enemies – it’s a day Bliss and Neil will never forget. Please join them.

Super Moist Bran Muffins

Over Xmas week, I christened my new gift, a KitchenAid Mixer on a Stand, by making this  cherished recipe passed down to me by me aunt, Joy Collingridge.  It was an added bonus for me to discover that this recipe is in keeping with my new year's resolution to be more health conscious about the desserts I make.





Notes:  1) Makes 24 Regular Sized Muffins. 2) I substituted 1.5 cups of regular brown sugar for 1 cup of Splenda Brown Sugar). 3) Don’t bake the 1st day.  Can keep bowl in fridge for up to 7 days and bake muffins fresh daily. This recipe may be doubled to make 48 muffins. 4) On the Weight Watchers Ap, this muffin recipe is 5 points each ( 4 if dates are omitted).

Ingredients:
1 cup boiling water
1 cup All Bran Original cereal (soaked in boiling water)
2.5 cups of flour (I use All Purpose Flour)
1.5 tablespoons of baking soda
½ teaspoon of salt
2 cups Bran Flakes cereal
1 cup Splenda Brown Sugar
½ cup vegetable oil
1/8 cup molasses
2 eggs
½ (2 cups) quart of Buttermilk
Optional:  I used 1 cup of No Name Dried Chopped dates.  You may choose 1-1.5 cups of raisins instead.

Instructions:
In a large bowl, add dry ingredients and stir in Bran Flakes.
In a separate bowl, cream shortening, sugar, molasses, and eggs.  Add the All Bran (soaked in hot water) mixture, then stir in the buttermilk.  Mix all ingredients together. I used a KitchenAid mixer stand set at a speed of 2 with a beater for cookies, cakes, or muffins or you can mix by hand.  Then add fruit (if desired) before scooping into muffin papers.
Bake:
Set oven at 375 F. Bake for 23-24 minutes.
