Home for the Holidays Blog Hop


CLICK HERE FOR THE BLOG HOP LIST
So we're supposed to feature one of our favorite holiday recipes for this wonderful blog hop.  Well, this recipe for Madonna Salad is one of my favorites. My mother-in-law has made this wonderful side dish for every holiday meal for as long as my hubby and I've been together. (Which is darn near 19 years!)  I absolutely love this treat, it's light, fluffy and very delicious. I wish I could've found a picture of it, because it's to die for. Maybe this year, I'll snap a shot of it before the kiddos tear into it. 




Recipe

1 - 3 oz package of Apricot Jello

AMAZON    B & N
Best friends since early childhood, Lily and Kyle do everything together but have sex…

From the school room to their morning radio show at KKRC, Kyle Austin has always had Lily's back, which is why her refusal to see him as anything other than a friend irks him. After overhearing a conversation revealing her true dominant nature, he sees an opportunity to have what he’s always wanted: Lily. With Christmas around the corner, he's not above shedding his nice guy image to show her how just naughty he can be.

Desperate to exorcise her lust before their annual New Year get together, Lily heads to her club…

Lily Banner thinks she holds a dark secret from Kyle, which is why his presence at the Velvet Fist is such a surprise. She’s wanted him forever, but to have him meant corrupting her best friend in ways he’d never imagined or so she thought. Because late at night, when the need gets to her, she dons her leather and becomes Mistress Banner – a domme who will demand more than just sex from him. But now that he’s in her world…will she get what she never thought she could have for Christmas?
