Karen’s Killer Fixin’s: *Author Special* Cathy Boyd

Karen’s Killer Fixin’s **AUTHOR SPECIAL**

Welcome to my Friday bonus feature called Karen’s Killer Fixin’s **Author Special**!!  Today, in lieu of one of my own recipes, I’m going to introduce you to a new author who will share one of her recipes. Not only will you and I occasionally learn how to make something new and delicious, but we’ll get a chance to check out some wonderful authors.

Introducing author, CATHY BOYD, and her recipe for Angel and Devil Egg!

Meet author, Cathy Boyd….

Cathy Boyd is a writer of children’s stories. She also writes Paranormal, urban fantasy, and romances in her grown–up name, Cathy Brockman.

Born and raised a southern girl, she loves working outside in her garden and creating great new recipes with all the goodies she grows. She loves to cook, sew, garden and craft. She loves to sit outside in one of her gardens when it’s nice to read or write.

She began writing in high school study hall getting prompts from her friends and making silly stories for them. When she was bored she was busy trying to write her own Nancy Drew mysteries. She put her dreams on hold to raise two lovely children. Now that they have flown from the nest she is back to pursing her dreams of writing.

She currently lives in the mid-south with her Hubby and her four-legged children, Molly and Spudcat, and she enjoys spending time with her many grandchildren and nieces and nephews.

She is back to chasing her dreams writing children stories, different types of Romance and mysteries, and spending too much time on Facebook!

  About Cathy’s books….

I have currently Luke’s Dragon on Amazon.com as an Ebook Published by Saga Books.  My first children’s story and I will be doing more. There will be a second in the Dreamworld series in Luke’s Adventures very soon, as well as a few other children’s stories.

I am currently working on two other projects first of which is what started me on my writing Journey, A paranormal romance/urban fantasy series I call the New Breeds— I am currently reworking the titles for the books, so I refer the first book as Blaize-The Beginning. I am hoping to create a world of new and interesting characters. Some may start out as mild and tame and they may become something entirely different as time progresses. This will all depend on the paths of each individual character and what they are actually bred from, and how they choose their destiny. Blaize sets out on a journey to see what she actually is as  she starts coming into her powers and finds out she isn’t a witch as she was raised to believe and that her Grandmother  is actually not just queen of the night and witches but  actually a true demon of the underworld-  . So she  tries to find out who her birth Father that is a Vampire,  is with the help of an Arrogant born Incubi that is supposed to be helping her not only find her father but handle her new needs. There are werewolves born and made, witches and you will have to tag along to see what else!  It is set to release sometime later this year also published by Saga Books.

I am Also working on a M/M romance that is about a Middle age man that is tired of his life as a player and decided after turning forty to move to a new town ,new job  and a new life-hoping to finally find the one true love that he wonders if really exists. He meets a young Male model at the magazine that he works for and they become very close friends.  Be Careful What You Wish For. You will get it. It just may not be exactly what you think. .

I am trying to create new romances that may seem a bit controversial but deal with real issues in a different way.  My stories will be hot and steamy ,I still want to be able to sweep you away into a fantasy, but still be able to say hey I am me and I am what I am and proud of it.  I am hoping to have this one out by mid- to late summer. It will make a great vacation read!

I am hoping to reach more than just one audience with my Romances- I have Paranormal- M/M several F/M- and several levels of heat. I want them hot enough that erotica lovers will like but also have a true meaning and touch your hearts not just your groins. Please join me at my Blog to learn more about me-

Living with a Muse or two or three or four on Tuesdays  and my Interview Inside the World of Writing on Thursdays. I also Cohost a radio blog with my friend Sian Young on Fridays.

Luke’s Dragon now available at Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/Lukes-Dragon-Lightning-Dreamworld-ebook/dp/B0079PD1Q4/ref=as_li_ss_mfw?&linkCode=wey&tag=wwwtashaturne-20


(Recipe inspired by my sweet and naughty muses.)

8-12 hardboiled eggs

½ cup of Mayonnaise-or salad dressing (divided)

Salt and pepper to taste

2 tsp. honey Dijon mustard

2 tsp. spicy sweet hot mustard (I use Inglemeyers, hot sweet pepper mustard—or honey Dijon with tabasco if I’m out)

Dash of Smoky Hungarian Paprika (regular paprika works fine)

Optional (dash of dill)

Hard-boil 8-12 eggs (these are delicious the next day)

Halve each egg and separate onto two plate’s -8-12 halves on each plate.  Scoop the yellow yolk out into two bowls equally.  In one bowl, add ¼ cup of mayonnaise and 2 tsp. of honey Dijon mustard, a dash of salt, a dash of pepper  (optional ¼ tsp. dill)

In the other bowl mix ¼ cup mayonnaise, 2 tsps. hot and sweet pepper mustard (I use Inglmeyer’s hot sweet pepper mustard— you can substitute your favorite or just use honey mustard with a tsp. of tabasco sauce will work.)

Scoop rounded teaspoon of each mix into the egg halves.  Sprinkle the hot ones with a dash of smoked Hungarian Paprika (or regular paprika if that’s what you have.) Refrigerate.

These are easy to make and I like to keep on hand for lunch or snack since I try to eat lower carb fares.  This way, I can indulge my sweet side or spicy side! Enjoy!
