Welcome Guest Sharon Farrow #Bookgiveaway

Please welcome our guest today, Sharon Farrow!  Sharon is the author of the Berry Basket Series.



BLUEBERRY ALMOND MUG CAKE

(GLUTEN-FREE)

3 tablespoons super fine almond flour

1 tablespoon coconut flour

½ teaspoon baking powder

1 1/2 tablespoons maple syrup

1 large egg

1 tablespoon milk

1 tablespoon olive oil

24 fresh blueberries

1 tablespoon sliced almonds

powdered sugar for dusting




In microwave-safe mug, add all ingredients, except blueberries, sliced almonds, and powdered sugar. With small whisk or fork, mix batter until smooth.



Gently drop blueberries on top. Don’t worry about mixing them into the batter. The berries will sink while cooking.


Sprinkle sliced almonds over surface of batter.



Cook cake in microwave at full power about 1 minute and 30 seconds, or until cake is done. 

Top with powdered sugar.



Cake is best eaten warm. Makes one serving of mug cake.



     
The Blueberry Blow Out festival in Oriole Point, Michigan has begun and it’s time for Marlee Jacob, owner of The Berry Basket, to shine. Unfortunately it’s also bringing out the worst in her fiancé Ryan Zeller. Ryan’s rivalry with Porter Gale, owner of Blueberry Hill Farm, spills over into a very public and very ugly fight. And after they compete in the pie-eating contest and a raucous tug of war, their orchard blood feud takes a deadly turn . . . 

The death of the king of Blueberry Hill is a shock but not too surprising—he was a diabetic whose last pig out meal was deliciously fatal. But when authorities discover that someone tampered with Porter’s insulin, a tragic accident is looking like murder—and Ryan is the key ingredient. Now Marlee’s investigation to clear his name is taking her deep into the Gale family secrets, and she’s being shadowed every step of the way by a killer whose sweet revenge is just beginning . . .

  2. Blueberries are a staple in our house. When they are in season and prices are reasonable we stock up for the winter. I have 3 1gal. bags in my freezer, 2 in my youngest daughter's freezer and 4 in my #2 son's freezer.

    We use them in snacks that include Greek Yogurt, bananas and strawberries.

    I'm a huge fan of cozies that include cooking and recipes.
