    I love this new venture of yours – now I can find all your great recipes in one spot. 😀 I made the Cracker Candy, although my oven is slightly hotter and the candy got slightly darker than it should have been – everyone still liked it.

    I wanted to let you know that I used the Marshmallow recipe that was posted on that Hot Chocolate on a Stick link you sent. It was easy and the marshmallows are fantastic.

    All right, I’m off to try to make the almond cookies now.

    Merry Christmas!

    Oops, sorry – forgot to let you know that I made the Hot Chocolate on a stick, but didn’t use the stick. I put each piece (one fudge, one marshmallow) in a mug with an instruction gift tag. I also made Pecan Sandies http://www.bhg.com/recipe/cookies/sandies/ – they’re my favourite cookie to bake at Christmas.

    I just made and gave cracker candy this year. Oh. And I made my version of the Quaker Vanishing Oatmeal cookies and gave those. I substitute craisins for raisins and add 1 cup of chocolate chips. People seem to like them. *I* like them.

    Normally I made a fruit cookie that is so full of dried apples and other goodies that it feels healthy and is OMG yummy. I didn’t dry any apples this year so I had to skip these.

About Me

Angela James

There is nothing worse than writing a bio. And writing one for your blog sidebar? Blech. Maybe you landed here via Google, followed me from Twitter (does that make you a stalker?) or maybe we met at a conference or you clicked a link from a comment I made at a blog you visited. Hopefully whatever I said didn't make you so mad you came looking for a picture to throw darts at (yep, that's me up above, in my favorite cowboy hat) but instead drove you to find out more about the amazingly witty and intelligent person behind the amazingly witty and intelligent comment.

However you found me, who you found is Angela James, executive editor of Carina Press, Harlequin's new digital-first press. I'm passionate about digital publishing, my mission is to drag people to the digital dark side, one reader (and author) at a time. I'm also Brianna's mommy. At my blog you'll get an odd mix of personal and professional posts about parenting, publishing, books, cooking, sewing and life in general. Come back often, comment frequently and go green—buy ebooks!

Please note that this is my personal blog and my opinions are neither that of Harlequin, nor representative of their opinions.


Find Me Here

First, I blog once or twice a week at theCarina Press blog, talking about the job, the authors, the books and other things Carina Press. And, of course, you can always find me on Twitter. Or Facebook, if you prefer (mostly the same content, one feeds the other). I also run the Carina Press Twitter and Facebook accounts. Social media, it's where it's at (well, it's where I'm at, anyway).
