Want a Quickie?
Okay, now that I have your attention!!
I know we’re all crazy busy, and when we’re chasing a deadline and only have time for a quickie—a quick easy dinner fix that is—we usually reach for the phone and order in. Well forget about the phone, and instead reach for that crock pot!
The last week has been insanely busy for me, in a good way! I’m deep into edits on three books with three different publishers, and because I’m going to be in the launch for two of the lines, the deadlines are crazy! I’m lucky to find time to eat in the run of a day, let alone cook, and since I’m sitting on my backside most of the day, I want to eat nutritious meals without having to spend hours preparing theml. Since my husband works twelve hour shifts he isn’t always here to help out in the kitchen department, which means I have to be creative if I want to put a nutritious meal on the table. That’s where my crock pot comes in. It’s so easy to toss a bunch of things into it in the morning and come dinner time, voila, a home cooked delicious and healthy meal. Today I’d like to share one of my favorite crock pot meals with you!

Sports medicine doctor and weekend cowboy, Chase Cooper, is ready to settle down, and he’s beginning to wonder if his best friend from high school, Mari Blair, could be the one that got away. Coop and his buddies have come up with a plan, but he never imagined it would be Mari’s sister, Julia—the girl who was always off-limits—, who would take him up on his invitation.
When lawyer, Julia Blair, finds herself on a dude ranch half way across the country, only to discover the invitation was meant for her vivacious twin sister, she knows she has two choices—go home alone or walk a day in her sister’s shoes. When she sets eyes on sexy cowboy Chase Cooper, the choice becomes easy. She's determined to stay and have some carefree fun while at the ranch.
Coop can’t believe the mix up, but when he discovers Julia wants to play, then play they will. When things get steamy and playtime becomes so much more, he’s determined to prove she’s the girl for him. And he’s not above using a few tricks of the trade to get his point across…
