The Path by Tawdra Kandle Release Day Blast


Summer’s almost over, but there’s still time for #OneLastBeachRead. And you’re in luck because the perfect way to end the summer is now live and available everywhere!


Abby Donavan came to the small beach community of Crystal Cove to start over. After a painful affair broke her heart and derailed her burgeoning career, taking over management for the just-opened bed-and-breakfast was the safe choice. In this sleepy town, Abby figured she could bury her memories and forget the pain.

When the chance to have her own hotel falls into her lap, though, she can’t resist the temptation. Making the old ipadrt_823x978Riverside Inn into the showplace she’s always dreamed of running offers the second chance she never expected.

Abby didn’t expect another kind of second chance to land on her doorstep at the same time. Ryland Kent wants to help her bring the Riverside back to life, and his passion for restoration is irresistible. But as much as she wants to ignore it, she can’t help seeing another spark in his eyes . . . one that offers to reignite her own flame.

Sometimes the path to a happily-ever-after is anything but smooth.

Breakfast Potatoes Colcannon

breakfast potatoes colcannonMashed potatoes are probably my all-time favorite comfort food.  They’re fluffy and creamy and you can top them with just about anything.

When I first started on my weight loss journey, I realized I was probably cooking mashed potatoes with gravy two or three times a week.  I cut them out for awhile, but since my weight has stabilized, we do have them for a special treat once a month or so.  The important thing is to make them as delicious as possible, but never eat more than one serving.

Of course, this means we almost always have leftovers.  My number one use for leftover mashed potatoes is in this yummy Breakfast Potatoes Colcannon.  It’s got everything you need for breakfast: eggs, veggies, cheese and carbs all mixed together in a supremely comforting dish!!  I serve mine with a few slices of turkey bacon for an extra boost of protein.

Breakfast Potatoes Colcannon


1 1/2 cups fresh spinach, rinsed and dried

3 medium crimini mushrooms, de-stemmed, washed and sliced

1 Tbsp. olive oil
