Shannon here: Contemporary romance author, Cara Putman shares a recipe for romance from her latest release, Rainbow’s End, a 4 in 1 novella collection with three other authors. Every time you comment, your name goes in the drawing for Rainbow’s End, K Dawn Byrd’s Shattered Identity, and one more book to be revealed Friday. Three winners this week. Deadline: May 9th, 11:59 pm central time. Here’s Cara:

In one of the Rainbow’s End novellas, Love’s Prize, I have the hero popping over to the heroine’s condo for many meals. The hero Colton Ryan, heroine Reagan Graham and her brother Scott spend the summer participating in a geo-caching competition. One thing Reagan doesn’t know about the hero is that Colton loves to cook. So he steals every opportunity he can to turn her condo into his culinary headquarters…after all cooking for one is no fun. 

One of his favorite recipes is omelets. Who doesn’t love a good omelet when they’re going to spend the day hiking around the Ozarks. Here’s his recipe: 

Throw in the Kitchen Sink Omelets 

Start with a couple eggs and a tablespoon of water. Beat until well combined. Pour into a lightly greased skillet – he likes to use butter. 

Top the eggs with grated cheese, sliced ham or turkey, chop up mushrooms, tomatoes and peppers and add to the mix. Basically look through your kitchen and pull out anything that’s edible and orphaned. 

Flip with a flair that’s sure to impress the girl. Fold over and slide onto her plate. Save the jalapeños unless it’s just the boys….she might thank you with a kiss.

    Both the book and Cara’s life sound interesting!

  • Teresa says:

    Sounds like a great way to make eggs. You could have some interesting combinations by the time you are finished. Can’t go wrong with cheese and eggs. Great hint on leaving out the jalapenos unless your with the guys. Sounds like a great read. Barely heard of geo-caching so it will be interesting to see what its about and how the story bring all the characters together. Might have to try out the egg recipe with the family sometime.

  • I love the recipe and the story. It’s a great post. It’s great to see Nebraska girls make it big. God bless both. Thanks for a chance to win the book.
