« Thanksgiving turkey redux: Turkey Orzo Soup |
| Happy Hanukkah--Mmmm...Potato Latkes »
It's taken a year from when I was first contacted but my Chicken Soup for the Nurse's Soul book is finally here:
It should be available anywhere Chicken Soup books are normally sold. My story is titled "Two Choices" on page 218.
Ahhhhh! My name in print = warm fuzzies! :-)

Do you have plans for booksignings? Sending out press releases so the local media will know we've got a real, live "Chicken Soup" author here in the Ozarks?

Glenna - congratulations BIG time! :-) Being that you like cardamon, here's a recipe you might like - my congratulatory gift.
(“Pandoro” with Cardamom Custard and Chocolate Sauce)
3 egg yolks
3/4 cup sugar
2 tablespoons cornstarch
1½ cups milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 tablespoon cardamom pods
Beat the egg yolks with the sugar until they are thick and pale in color.
Add the cornstarch, milk, and vanilla.
Mix well and transfer the mixture in a medium saucepan over medium heat.
Add the cardamom pods to the mixture and cook, stirring constantly,
until the mixture thickens (enough to coat the back of the spoon).
Remove from the heat, strain the mixture and discard the cardamom pods.
Transfer the custard to a bowl and keep it refrigerated until ready to use it.
1 "Pandoro", about 1½ pounds *
8 ounces semisweet or bitter sweet chocolate, melted
Spoon the cardamom custard on eight dessert plates.
Slice the “Pandoro” into eight wedges and place them over the custard.
Drizzle the “Pandoro” slices with the melted chocolate, the powdered sugar and serve

Glenna, that is so exciting! Congratulations! I know you had a lot of material to choose from as a nurse since my daughter Katie is a nurse (she will graduate from a Nurse Anesthesia Master's program next Saturday!) I know you are excited to actually be in a book!

Wow, now that is very cool. I remember when I was quite young and sent in some suggestions to the team at Europe on $25 a Day and they printed my suggestions in their book. It was great to see my name in print.
