Recipe: Dottie's Stuffed Mushrooms @JenniferFrance_ #MFRWauthor #RLFblog

Stuffed Mushrooms 
Romance Lives Forever welcomes back Marketing for Romance Writers member Jennifer France for a Taste of Summer Camp. MFRW is counting down the days to their FREE marketing summer camp with scrumptious recipes from members. Today's recipe is Dottie's Stuffed Mushrooms. Take it away, Jennifer!

I know, I know. I normally write of all things dealing with BDSM but today I'm going to write about something that, for all intense and purposes, can be much better!
If you are a writer (no matter what genre (yep: even BDSM) ~ aspiring, published (self or otherwise)) I have something amazing to share with you! It's called Marketing For Romance Writers (MFRW).
We all know that having a network of friends to help fill in the blanks is invaluable ... well MFRW has a wealth of resources- people full of information because they have either been there, done that, or researched it and are so very willing to pass their information on to you. It doesnt end there - they have classes to help you get your work from the laptop to the bookshelves. It's nothing short of amazing the things these folks do for writers like us!
Of course the best part is that you can join! What could be better than that?!? Oh, I know: It's free!
What perfect timing too since they are gearing up for Summer Camp the second weekend in July (12th to the 14th) and I'm here to help promote this fabulous opportunity with what we're calling A Taste of Summer Camp to get this information out there by sharing a recipe. Romance authors, join MFRW’s Yahoo Group today so you don’t miss out on this excellent learning opportunity.
Since I love to write about things that make my mouth water, I'm gonna share a favorite, mouth-watering, low carb recipe that I can never make enough of for my guests ~ even had a caterer ask for the recipe to this one;).


2 pounds fresh mushrooms
8 ounces cream cheese, softened
1 pound pork sausage (I like sage)
8 ounces cheddar cheese, shredded
Salt and pepper, to taste (I don't use any)
Remove the stems from the mushrooms by gently twisting them off. Drain the fat, if necessary. I found it helpful to chop the meat up until it was pretty fine, but not mushy. Mix in the remaining ingredients, except the mushroom caps. Fill the caps with the sausage mixture. (I use my fingers worked best). Pile in as much sausage as you can per mushroom. Put in a greased or foil-lined baking pan(s) and bake, uncovered, at 350Âș for 20-30 minutes until hot and bubbly.
About 30 mushrooms
Do not freeze
Per mushroom: 112 Calories; 9g Fat; 6g Protein; 1g Carbohydrate; trace Dietary Fiber; 1g Net Carbs
Per whole batch: 3364 Calories; 279g Fat; 191g Protein; 43g Carbohydrate; 11g Dietary Fiber; 32g Net Carbs

Book: The Highlander's Witch

The Highlander's Witch
For years, twenty-three-year-old Skye Bennett has been waiting for someone to sweep her off her feet and bring about her darkest fantasies. But there’s just one problem - she comes from a family of witches and her older sister, Sarah, uses her power of fire to interfere in every intimate relationship Skye has.
When their aunt mistakes Skye’s date as her soul mate only to discover he is really Sarah’s,
her family tries to make up for it by finding the man Skye truly belongs with. Unfortunately, their last attempt failed miserably when they set her up for a speed-dating event, so her aunt resorts to magic to accomplish their desires. Suddenly propelled back in time without warning, Skye is saved from a brutal cougar attack by a Scottish Laird who has just returned from another skirmish and only wants to sit in front of a warm fire with a mug of ale. Instead, Aiden finds Skye and believes the unknown ‘lad’ to be a spy. When he finds out the spy is a female his concern grows, as does his lust.
Aiden realizes this woman can be his downfall but she calls to him in a way he cannot deny. Has she been sent to destroy all he has fought for, or is she his salvation? Fighting his desires, he knows he must ensure the safety of his home and kin from those that wish to destroy what he has fought to hold onto.
In this tale set in fourteenth century Scotland, a witch must determine if she can trust the man who holds her life in his hands - even as he steals her heart.
