Nell’s Lemon Layered Love – Death Knock

DSCN0950This dessert is included in Death Knock and is one of my favorites because it’s scrumptious and a cinch to make.  I came up with the recipe after watching many cooking shows and reading countless recipes.  It’s a mix of several ideas that really come together well.  This could also be prepared using a springform pan with your own crust and lemon curd.  Topping it off with homemade whipped cream makes it beautiful and delicious.  Either way you fix it, the taste is tart and fresh.  I hope you and your guests enjoy it as much as my family and friends always do.


12 ounce tub of Cool Whip, thawed

2 10 ounce jars of lemon curd*

1 shortbread premade pie crust

1 lime

Pour the contents of one of the jars of lemon curd into a bowl.  Stir until soft and well blended.  Then spread into a layer over the pie crust.  Pour the other jar of curd into the same bowl and stir again until well blended.  Add one half of the tub of Cool Whip into the bowl and then stir carefully so the whipped cream doesn’t break down.  When it is blended , pour onto the layer of lemon curd.  Layer the remaining Cool Whip on the top.  Finally zest the lime and sprinkle for decoration.  Refrigerate for at least two hours.


*Lemon curd can be found in the jam/jelly or the baking section of most grocery stores.

Death Knock is Out!

I’m pleased to announce that Death Knock came out a couple weeks ago to high praise from family and friends.  I’ve been told that readers enjoyed it more than my first book, Death Nell.  Music to my ears.  In the book, three new features have been added.  A map of Bayshore is at the beginning and recipes are offered at the end.  I also included a few pages of my next culinary mystery, Death Nosh.  Readers have appreciated these changes.  I’m hoping each book continues to intrigue fans of my Noshes Up North series.  The books can be purchased on Amazon through a link here on my website, at B&N, Smashwords, and Kobo.  If you live in the area, you can find it at Bayshore Books in Oconto.  May you find this slice of life amusing, heart-warming, and thought-provoking.  You might even recognize Nell in yourself or someone you love.Death Knock-SOCIALMEDIA[1]

Death Knock Coming Soon

Death Knock-SOCIALMEDIA[1]The excitement is building at my house and it’s not just for Christmas.  My new book, Death Knock is coming out soon.  I don’t know the exact date yet, but for me it’s like waiting for Santa.

The cover shows that there is plenty of food in this book just as there was in my first, Death Nell.  I’ve even added recipes to the back this time.  There’s also a murder that puts Nell in hot water.

Order either (or both) of my books here on my website or on various other platforms.

Christmas Sass!

I love Christmas!  The true meaning of Christmas is the important part, but I also love the lights, the glitter, and good cheer.  All of it brings joy to my heart.

This year I had to get a little sassy on my chalkboard.  Not too much, though.  I still want Santa to remember me.  I’m sharing a few pictures of my decorating as I try to wait patiently for my next book, Death Knock, to come out.  It could be any day now.DSCN0930DSCN0919DSCN0913
