**Q&A with Breena Wilde**
We fondue – all kinds. With oil, broth, and CHOCOLATE. Yummy!
We lived on Guam when I was little. My dad mowed the lawn one Christmas morning.
There was this guy in college I was totally crushing on. I didn’t think he knew my name. At a Christmas party, he came up to me, mistletoe in hand and kissed me. It was obviously memorable.
How the Grinch Stole Christmas – the cute little animated one.
I gave him Christmas inspired underwear…
Pumpkin Spiced Latte.
Old School, all the way.
Definitely better to give.

This is the recipe that inspired Willow’s mom’s (FROSTED MIDNIGHT) secret recipe for eggnog. They used already made (store bought) eggnog. Pour in 1/4C brandy. ¼ C peach brandy. ¼ cup rum and then a little bit of eggnog.
(Recipe from Epicurious)
- 12 eggs, separated
- 2 cups superfine sugar
- 1 pint brandy
- ½ pint light rum
- ½ pint peach brandy (if you can’t find peach brandy, just up the regular brandy)
- 3 pints milk
- 1 pint heavy cream
Beat the egg yolks and sugar together until thick. Slowly stir in the brandy, rum, peach brandy, milk and cream. Refrigerate until thoroughly chilled and pour into a punch bowl. Beat the egg whites until stiff and fold gently into the eggnog. Grate a little nutmeg on top and serve in 4-ounce punch glasses.
**About Frosted Midnight**
Willow needs a miracle…
Twenty-year-old Willow is a librarian in the tourist town of Bandon, Oregon. During the summer the town is bursting with interesting people from all over the world.
Two summers ago she met Austin. He was everything she ever wanted in a man: smart, funny, and gorgeous. But after eight perfect weeks he left, and she hasn’t heard from him since.
Until Christmas Eve. She receives an email from Austin asking her to meet him at midnight so he can explain.
It might be a booty call, but Willow has to see him one last time, even if it’s just to say good-bye.
