Today Lisa Renee Jones stopped by with a recipe for Oreo Pie!
**Q&A with Lisa Renee Jones**
Eating too much and then going to the movies! Every years at Thanksgiving we see two movies and put up our tree. It’s always a time I look forward to.
New Years Eve 3 years ago I got food poisoning and lost 11 pounds in 3 days. For me to loose 3 pound when I struggle to do it is a nightmare. I’ve never been so sick.
Definitely with my new husband. He’s so into the holidays that he makes them romantic and fun.
National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation…that rant of his near the end is hilarious…..and where’s the aspirin!
Our wedding rings November 9th in San Francisco when we finally said “I do”!
I’d rather have Egg Nog but fast conscious as I am I’d pick the cider and regret it.
Diego (hubby) bought all kinds of specialty ornaments that are collectors items so we always use those.
I’ve never been big on getting gifts. I think because I was a mom at such a young age, planning the boys Christmas was always what the fun was about.

Message from Lisa Renee:
My kids loved this and everyone who has tried it with theirs tell me the same.
|Desserts||Prep Time: Hardly any!||Cook Time: None||Serves: Makes a full pie.|
A bag of Oreo cookies, a glass pan, whipped cream.
It’s meant to make with kids — so it’s easy! So simple and you will be shocked how it tastes!
Have kiddo put cookies on the bottom then spread whipped cream and repeat as high as you can get. Chill over night. It will mush together and taste and look like a real Oreo pie that was fretted over. And the kiddo made it!

Series: Heating Up the Holidays

Kali Miller has spent three years reporting fluff stories, waiting for the article that will
launch her career to new heights. When she suddenly finds herself forced to take a job as an executive secretary at a Vegas casino, Kali meets the subject of what will surely be a shocking exposé: her boss, Damion Ward, the arrogant and undeniably sexy CEO. But after Damion invites her to help him plan a Thanksgiving charity event, Kali begins to see another side of the man. And when she surrenders to the exhilarating tension simmering between them, Kali hopes her story will have a happy ending.

My favorite book is Infinite Possibilities….although Being Me is a close second! 🙂
I love The Secret Life of Amy Benson series..but truthfully I haven’t read a Lisa book I didn’t like 🙂
The holidays usually mean the making of wassail where my family is concerned. We do it with minimum fuss. Apple cider + pineapple juice in a crock pot on low, add a few cinnamon sticks. We usually leave the apricot brandy out of it and let people add what they want to their own drinks. Drink in front of a fire and you are sure to be toasty inside and out 😉
