The Hunger Games Cooking Adventure: The Odds Were Never in my Favor

Good evening, readers!

This special cooking adventure can be found on the webpage of my fellow author and friend, Jen Blood. She is the author of the newly-released novel, All The Blue-Eyed Angels, and has been participating in a month-long tribute to The Hunger Games. Currently, she’s involved in a community read project with the local highschool which meets every Monday night to discuss the book. Brilliant, and funny, she also offers several different tips for budding writers! Be sure to check out her website. It’s a wealth of information!

You can find my guest post on her blog here.

Next week’s Cooking Adventure will be Raspberry Almond Coffee Cake with Cafe Caribe. Stay tuned!
