    1. I know how easy the Mile High Apple Pie one is to make, and it's YUM! My hubby remembers his grandmother making dried apple stack cake.

    1. Thanks, Lorrie - yours was great too. Nothing better to me for the 4th of July, reading while waiting for the fireworks to begin. Love my Kindle for that. :-D

  8. Love the pictures of the food. You did such a good job of capturing them. Now I only have one problem. Which do I cook/bake first? That is after I finish all the stories in the book. PRP has done it again with a super anthology.

    1. Thanks, Agnes! I guess you could start with the first, and work your way to the end... my motto is dessert first, though. ;-D

  9. Meg, what a wonderful idea to post the pictures of our foods. You did a remarkable job--and I am also as hungry as a bear--thank you very much. I had so much fun writing my story, have thoroughly enjoyed the one I've read so far and look forward to spending my Fourth reading the rest. Thank you again for your ingenious and delightful post and thanks to PRP for another terrific anthology.

  10. I am loving the food images. They all made me hungry. The berry pie especially. I think that adding images like this to a book would be a great visual for your readers. It definitely works for this blog that is for sure. You have wet my appetite for the book that is for sure.
