Who all is reading to get through this quarantine?

Reading Ilona Andrews

For those of you reading your way through quarantine, I want to share a special ebook from some of my all-time favorite authors! It’s a special edition eBook collection of three of the Innkeeper Chronicles by Ilona Andrews. Instead of putting it on the book store sites for free, they have it priced at $.99 for a limited time with all proceeds going to the COVID-19 Response fund CPD Center for Disaster Philanthropy. (Link posted below) They also periodically post serials for free online, so you can read as the book is being written!

I just realized this is the second vampire-inspired recipe on my blog so far… (I’m starting to see a theme. Refer to my vampire related previous post.)

Fluffy Pancakes with Coffee Syrup

Favorite FoodieBooks Friday! Fluffy, Fluffy Pancakes with Coffee Syrup, Coffee & Ghosts!

I needed some lite reading, so I looked at the books I’ve read in my Kindle library. Coffee & Ghosts by Charity Tahmaseb brought a smile to my face. I don’t remember if BookBub, Riffle, or https://www.amazon.com/b?_encoding=UTF8&tag=ebookfoodie-20&linkCode=ur2&linkId=a1bfa602bc01f37d684c43fdc9f90031&camp=1789&creative=9325&node=25">AmazonAmazon referred it to me about a year ago, but knowing how much I love coffee, how could I go wrong with a book titled “Coffee & Ghosts?” Anyway, re-reading Coffee & Ghosts is just what I needed. I needed fluffy pancakes with coffee syrup!

They make a TON of coffee (and tea) in this book, and eat tons of buttermilk pancakes at the Springside Pancake House. I found myself inspired to make pancakes, but not just any pancakes, FLUFFY pancakes! Fluffy pancakes have been all over Pinterest lately. I like breakfast for dinner, but “husband” is not a fan. Too bad for him!
