Doughnuts, vodka and #mermaids... #recipes #guestpost @Lyncee

A Mermaid's Wish cover

By Lyncee Shillard (Guest Blogger)

Hi everyone!!!! I’m so glad you stopped by…And thank you Lisabet for hosting me.

Since this is the first time I’ve hung out on Lisabet’s blog, I thought I’d start off by sharing some of fav’s…. doughnuts and vodka. They complete me. :-p

These recipes are featured in my new release A Mermaid’s Wish

While doughnuts are my hands down favorite retreat food, cookies are a close second. And these – A Day at the Beach Cookies– are at the top of my list...

What You'll Need

  • 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 cup vegetable shortening
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 (20-ounce) can crushed pineapple, drained
  • ¼ cup coconut vodka
  • ¼ cup pineapple vodka
  • ¼ cup vanilla vodka
  • 1/2 cup flaked coconut

What to Do

    1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat cookie sheets with cooking spray.
    2. In a medium-sized bowl, combine flour, salt, baking soda, and baking powder.
    3. In a large bowl, cream together shortening and sugars until light and fluffy. Add eggs, pineapple, and vodka; beat thoroughly. Gradually add flour mixture and blend.
    4. Drop mixture by teaspoonfuls onto prepared cookie sheets. Sprinkle each cookie with a pinch of coconut. Bake 12 to 15 minutes or until golden.
    5. Cool slightly and remove from pan with a spatula.

Okay so we have the food covered now let’s move on to the drinks… these are a favorite everywhere I go. Sometimes I think I’m invited just for this drink…

The tropics in a glass…

What you need:

  • 1 1/2 ounces vanilla vodka
  • 1 ounce coconut rum
  • 1/2 ounce cream of coconut
  • Splash of pineapple juice
How to Make It:
  • Pour the ingredients into a cocktail shaker filled with ice.
  • Shake well.
  • Strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
  • Garnish with a pineapple wedge and/or coconut flakes.

So when I’m not baking cookies or making drinks, I write.

A Mermaid's Wish

Aislynn gives up her position in Neptune’s court for the chance to experience human emotions. Especially passion. Before her wish is fulfilled, she finds herself the target of a serial killer.

A teaser.... 

(I do this a lot…I can’t help myself…)

Aislynn’s role as a negotiator for Neptune’s court had taught her to divide and conquer. Scott wanted her to work up an entire professional pitch for saving Camille’s homeland and she needed to get Finley to fall in love with her. The computer hummed as Aislynn clicked her way from website to website.

For the campaign to save the land sprit’s homeland Aislynn knew she would need to prove how doing so would improve profits. While the movement to become more environmentally aware was gaining support, the bottom dollar still ruled. She outlined two of her strongest ideas and requested back-up material from several organizations.

Excitedly, she switched over to finding ways to make Finley fall in love with her. She read several articles describing love, how to know if a man loves you, and twenty foolproof ways to make a man fall helplessly in love with you.

And we all know that what we find on the internet is true and excellent advice... ;^)

Come and hang out with me... we will talk about doughnuts and vodka...
