As many of you are already aware, I've
recently been blessed with several publishing contracts for my fiction work.
Writing under the pseudonym of
eight novels will be released this year as part of the

The Larkin Community
Cookbook is available in
Nook editions, and as a PDF (Adobe Acrobat) download.
Try this recipe from the Amber Whale Tavern:

2 TBS mayonnaise
2 tsp. Old Bay Seasoning
1/8 tsp. cayenne pepper
2 tsp. parsley
1/2 tsp. prepared yellow
1 egg, beaten
1 LB fresh lump crabmeat
Break bread into small
pieces. Mix in mayonnaise, Old Bay, parsley, mustard and egg. Stir in
crabmeat. Shape mixture into patties. Broil for ten minutes without turning,
or fry until golden-brown on both sides.

Because I'm getting
eight books ready for release in 2011-12, the next update at Food Fare

Check back for updates and other
news as summer approaches, or come by our page at
