It’s October and what says October more than pumpkins? Well, maybe trick or treat candy, but that’s a whole other story!
I thought I’d share pumpkin recipes the next few posts.
Here’s one from one of the readers of Sweet Tea and Secrets – Kim Hudson for Roasted Pumpkin Seeds.
- Take 2 cups of fresh seeds,
- 3 Tbsp melted butter,
- 1 tsp. salt
- 1 tsp. of worstershire sauce.
Mix and coat thoroughly, spread on a foil lined 15″ x 10″ baking sheet and bake (250 degrees) for 45-50 min., stirring occasionally.
Increase heat to 325 degrees and bake 5 min. longer or until seeds are dry and lightly browned. Then serve.
On Friday, September 30th, I drove down to Suffolk, VA and spent the evening with the BOOK CLUB BABES. Special thanks to Sonja who was the host of the meeting and invited me.
What a wonderful surprise to see this sign right on the front door. The hosts daughter made it for me. I’ve got it in my office on my wall now. It makes me smile every time I glance at it! Thanks!
This group of educators gets together once a month. These gals do it right, too. They move the meeting to different members houses each month and whoever is the host is responsible for the meal. Yes! A meal … and wine … and dessert, too. Members bring side dishes to round out a wonderful evening of food and fun.
Since Sweet Tea and Secrets was the book for the month, they even made sweet tea, Jill’s Quickie Chopped Slaw Salad and Pearl’s Famous Chocolate Pecan Pie — all recipes found in the book.
I had the most wondeful time with these ladies. One of the highlights was flipping through their scrapbook. They have a scrapbook page for every single book the club has read. It’s creative and fun and walking down memory lane was so much fun. They even lent me one of their recent reads, The Venetian Mask. An awesome book. I really enjoyed it.
This was my first official book club visit. They sure did set a high bar, but I can’t wait to attend more.
Thank you so much to the Suffolk Book Club Babes for making such a special night for Sweet Tea and Secrets and sharing their thoughts about the town and folks of Adams Grove.
Hugs and happy reading,

Once word got around that Cheezburger was getting fan mail from the post on the 14th, the goats wanted to get in on the fun, too.
Red was born on July 3rd. She's got a twin sister who insists on running and playing all day long. Red left sister on the hill and is sneaking in a little down time - reading in the shade while her mom is out grazing.
Then, Red’s mom came back and it was lunch time for Red. Got milk?
- What has my daughter been reading while I was out with the girls grazing? Hmmm. This story isn’t half baaa-aaad.

Isn’t it the truth that we love sharing good news with friends? Great restaurants, super movies, and books by new authors. Hey! I’m a new author! I had so much fun with those letters from Angela and Alicia that I had a little fun with my copies of Sweet Tea and Secrets. Yes…I said copies. You see, we have a 2nd edition out and the second cover is even sweeter than the first! Spread the word that it’s also at a lower e-book price in July…just $2.99 on kindle, nook and other formats, too.
Here’s a picture of a Holland Farm resident checking out Sweet Tea and Secrets.
Say hello to Cheezburger. He’s a one week old red&white holstein. Here Cheezburger is reading Sweet Tea and Secrets at bottle time. He’s a Clyde fan….Boys that drool have to stick together, you know!
Oh, didn’t you know? I live on Holland Farm. We have several hundred goats…this is our very first cow. My husband has more hat than herd (unless you count the goats!!), but we’re okay with that. We’re loving having Cheezburger around and the goats seem to like him, too.
I hope you’ll share some fun pictures of Sweet Tea and Secrets … we’ll add them right here.
It will be fun!
Hugs and happy reading,
