Easy Creamy Garlic Sauce...My butt

I snagged a recipe from one of the girls on my women's site, thinking it seems so simple.
Once again it didn't work for me. But here is the recipe.

Creamy Garlic Sauce

1 cup milk
2 table spoons butter
2 teaspoons chopped chives
2 teaspoons minced garlic
2 tablespoons flour
chopped parsley

Melt butter, stir in milk, bring to boil, add garlic, flour and whisk, turn down heat, add chives , parsley and salt. Continue to whisk for 4 more minutes on low heat, remove from heat and serve over hot pasta.

Well, for me it turned out too sticky and overly garlic. Next time, I think I will up the butter and down the garlic amounts.

Vampire Themed Dinner

What have I gotten myself into?
I am doing an All Vamp Challenge and one of my challenges is to make a vampire themed dinner for a dinner party.

What am I going to do for that? I have been to the Martha Stewart website trying to find some of her easier themed items but am still coming up at a loss.

I ended up sick over Thanksgiving (Canadian Thanksgiving is in October) so there was no cooking of any kind for me.
And with the book tour for Stacey Voss, and my own book deadline I have been eating on the run; in other words alot of Starbucks coffee and Egg Salad sandwiches.

Once the book tour is over which is end of Nov, and the deadline for my novel which is Dec 5th 2009, I will be back full force on here.

Oct 4 2009

Just a quick post to say that I am still alive and have not forgotten about the blog.
Hoping with the holidays coming up to have a few new ideas on here.
At the moment, I am part of a book tour for author Stacey Voss. Which you can get details for here
There has been nothing much exciting food wise in my place the last week. Just some homemade raspberry jam.

Which is the simplest thing ever.

Raspberry jam

*1 pound raspberries fresh
*2 cups sugar
*2 table spoons water

Boil for half hour.
