The 12 Days of Christmas

Day #5On the Fifth Day of Christmas,

My true love gave me a party tip.

For our Christmas potluck next week,

I should bring my guacamole dip.

I used to be intimidated by what I thought would be hard recipes, like guacamole. But I found a great spice packet in my produce section that’s made one of my favorite appetizers easy.

Take 2 large or 3 small avocados. Pour in the spice packet (it comes in mild or hot). I also take half of a small tomato and chop it up fine. Add a dash of lemon and lime juice. (This not only adds a hint of flavor but also helps it keep from turning when sitting out on a food table. Mix thoroughly, cover with foil, and refrigerate until ready to serve. This is a great recipe to make several hours before, to let the spices mix well with the avocado..

Serve with chips. Get creative with pita chips and fiesta colored chips.

Now, to the spotlight of my post. Welcome Jessica Jefferson, author of the wonderful Compromising Miss Tisdale, Taming Miss Tisdale, and the soon-to-be-released Chasing The Other Tisdale. If you haven’t had a chance to read this series, it’s a must!

Taming Miss Tisdale by Jessica Jefferson


Miss Tamsin Tisdale believes herself to be completely unsuitable for London life. After a myriad of social mishaps, and the potential ruination of her family name, she’s shipped away to her cousin’s northern estate. Only after she accepts the type of existence Society dictates she must follow will she be welcomed home.

Marcus Winston, the Duke of Grayson, has a lackluster reputation. The last in a dying line, he’s endured a protected life—rank with privilege, but encumbered by isolation. After a brief encounter with rebellion, he learns the devastating consequences of his carelessness and willingly accepts living life from inside his gilded cage.

However, a chance meeting with the brazen Miss Tisdale gives Marc the opportunity to reinvent himself into the man he’s always dreamed of being. But when his deception comes to light, and ghosts from both their pasts threaten to unravel the intimacy they’ve come to cherish, will either of them set their fears aside long enough to embrace love? Or will Miss Tisdale’s stubbornness divide them?
