Welcome guest blogger Cindi Myers!





I'd like to welcome my friend
Cindi Myers. Not only is she a
fabulous writer but she's a
fascinating person as well!






Cindi worked as a newspaper reporter, travel agent and medical
clinic manager before turning to writing full time. She's written both
historical and contemporary romance, as well as dozens of short stories
and nonfiction articles. Cindi thinks writers have the best job in the world.

Former president of San Antonio Romance Authors, Cindi is a member
of Romance Writers of America, Novelists Inc., and Rocky Mountain
Fiction Writers.


She and her husband and their two dogs live in the mountains
Southwest of Denver. When she's not caught up in creating new
characters and stories, Cindi enjoys reading, quilting, gardening,
skiing and hiking. She's also in demand as a speaker, teaching
workshops and making presentations to both local and national
writing groups.

Here's Cindi:

I have a split personality when it comes to holiday baking. On one
hand, I love making all kinds of fancy cookies, breads and candy
and handing them out to neighbors and friends. On the other, I really
don't have time most years to do a lot of baking. And who really
needs all those extra calories and sugar, anyway?
But I do like to indulge a little for the holidays. So as a compromise,
this year I ditched the elaborate, fancy cookies and went straight
for the one thing I never indulge in any other time of year. It's super
fast, super easy and super delicious. Fudge. Specifically, the kind
made with marshmallow cream and chocolate chips. I like mine with
nuts, but it's also awesome with crushed peppermint or peanut butter
chips mixed in. You can whip up a big batch in about 15 minutes.
Everyone will love it, I promise.


3 cups sugar
3/4 cup margarine
2/3 cup evaporated milk
1 12-oz. (340 g) package semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 7-oz. (198 g) jar Kraft Marshmallow creme
1 cup chopped nuts
1 teaspoon vanilla extract


Combine sugar, margarine and milk in heavy 2-1/2 quart saucepan;
bring to full rolling bail, stirring constantly. Continue boiling 5 minutes
over medium heat, stirring. Remove from heat, stir in chocolate till
melted. Add marshmallow creme, nuts & vanilla beat till blended.
Pour into greased 13 x 9-inch baking pan. Let cool and cut into
1-inch squares.

Cindi's latest release is HER CHRISTMAS WISH from Harlequin
American Romance (Available Now).
