Join me at Chapters for a book signing of my new historical novel, Shadow Song as well as my cookbook, Recipes of a Dumb Housewife.
Shadow Song: Danielle Michele Fleming, 10 year old daughter of a French aristocratic mother, and the second son of English gentry, finds herself caught in the economic ruin that surrounds the failure of the Bourbon Monarchy. Without the surety of her mother's lands in France, Danielles uncle forecloses on loans he holds for his brother. Her privileged life erodes into abject poverty and orphan. She finds herself aboard ship, destined for the Queen's Bush of Upper Canada and a life with the catalyst of her doom, her uncle, Edgar Fleming.
Recipes of a Dumb Housewife: What makes this recipe book different is that it's the Everyman's cookbook with a pinch of quirk. Lorina Stephens, author of Recipes of a Dumb Housewife, declares herself a simple domestic cook. But don't mistake simple for dull or even dumb. Her cooking philosophy is simple ingredients treated simply, working in harmony with the demands of flavour, quality, nutrition and the demands of time and budget. While treating her readers to such wonderful recipes as: Green Goo Pasta, Eggs Lorina, and I Capezzolo di Venere (Nipples of Venus), she offers a light-hearted window into her world through delightful, and often insightful, anecdotes about her journey not only to the recipe, but raising a family, juggling career and domestic responsibilities as well as health issues.
All recipes are appended by nutritional analysis.
