    Culinary school? I am totally jealous! Are you going to pursue it as a career, or is it a hobby? Your menu looks droolworthy.

    For Easter I am fixing Emeril’s Chicken Marsala. I have fixed it several times and it is very simple. It is all in the wine!

    Angela – I’m pursuing it as a career. I got the opportunity to go back to school after losing my job due to the recession.

    And for easter – we’re having a full menu –
    roasted chicken
    smoked ham
    scalloped potatoes
    cornbread dressing
    7 layer salad
    greens – mustard and turnips
    green beans
    roasted carrots, onions & brussels sprouts
    peach pie or peach cobbler
    chocolate cake or cheesecake brownies

    Sunday: Lasagna, salad, garlic breadsticks
    Monday: Beef enchiladas and refried beans
    Tuesday: crockpot Pot Roast, something that will stay warm till my daughter gets home late from her game.
    Wednesday: Pork Chops with…something. Maybe brown rice pilaf and roast veggies?
    Thursday: Another game night, so something that can be eaten cold: BBQ chicken breasts & potato salad.
    Friday: Good Friday…fasting, so probably a frozen cheese pizza or scrambled eggs.
    Saturday: probably go out to eat for Thai food.
    Easter Sunday: Spiral sliced ham with brown sugar glaze, my family’s favorite coronary-inducing twice-baked potatoes (with sauteed mushrooms, scallions, grated swiss, butter and sour cream), fresh asparagus, snowflake or potato rolls, and either carrot cake w/ cream cheese frosting or strawberry shortcake.

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).
