Comment or answer the question at the end of the post to enter the drawing. Deadline: Oct 29th, 11:59 pm central time. Here’s Darlene:
In my novella, A Taste of Honey, my heroine wants to sweep the baking competitions with entries made with wildflower honey. She plans to start a business with the winnings. Of course I had to share a recipe!
Edith substitutes honey for sugar when possible. It took several attempts to master the sugar cookies. I borrowed a contemporary recipe if you want to try.
Oh, the problem with the honey? The meadow belongs to her neighbor—and he wants to plow it under to generate badly needed income.
