Happy Fall and an Audio/Ebook Giveaway! — 24 Comments

    • Ohhhh, Lori!!
      These are some of my favorites, too! We used to have a little place close by that made the best apple cider donuts I’d ever tasted but, unfortunately, they closed a couple of years ago… I’m still not over it 😉 .

  1. You’re fab Marilyn! 😘 Love all of your books and I will have to check this wonderful ‘Sweet Temptations’ audio package. Congrats 🎉😘

  2. It’s snowing here, so all of you Fall lover’s, enjoy it for me! 🙂

    Fall/apple food…cider from my grandparents cider press (I’m sure it even predated them.) All my first cousins (12 on mum’s side alone) and our friends would go in a few pick-ups to pick apples and the next day crank, crush and squeeze gallons of cider!

    Thanks for a great contest, Marilyn. Audio books are SO expensive, so I appreciate the generosity of the gift, no matter who wins!

    • Deb,
      SNOW?!! I live in northern Illinois, so I know it’ll be coming here before too long, but I’m trying to hang on to every last bit of autumn before it does 🙂 .
      What a wonderful memory you had of picking apples and squeezing them in your grandparents’ cider press! Thanks for sharing that and for all of your kind comments, too!!

  3. i love making apple slices. Pastry top and bottom and apples in the middle. Then I frost with a thin layer of a white frosting glaze. They are so yummy.

  4. We’re in the middle of harvesting our crop of apples from our small orchard. We’ve cooked some of them up in a big pot with blackberries, also from our garden, and put them in tubs in the freezer. Then we can have pies and crumbles all year round. We also cook the apples on their own and freeze them.

    Love the recipe Marilyn. We’ll have to try that as well, as we have a huge crop this year.

    I love audiobooks so I’d probably choose that option if I’m lucky enough to win.

    • Anji,
      How wonderful that you have an orchard to harvest! I would love to have even a few apple trees… When I was growing up, my parents had a handful of fruit trees in our backyard and I remember fall being a time of delicious smells when my mother would cook & can for days. She made homemade applesauce that was so tasty! I’ll bet your pies and crumbles will be mouth-wateringly good!! (Eat an extra piece or two for me. 🙂 ) xox

  5. Thank you so much for sharing. I love audiobooks as I can ‘read’ when I drive. I am looking forward to reading YOU GIVE LOVE A BAD NAME. I am enjoying the books in the Mirabelle Harbor series. The baked apple recipe sounds delicious. I’ll have to give it a try.

  6. Happy November, Friends!!
    I did the random drawing late last night and the winners are:
