Authentic Bosnian Baklava recipe:

wiserlady's Blog

This is a recipe for authentic Bosnian walnut baklava. My husband is Bosnian and his favorite dessert is baklava. I wanted to be able to make baklava for him at home. However, I started with phyllo dough bought from the store. I was not satisfied with the flaky consistency. When I discussed with other Bosnian ladies, I realized that in the old days, the women would make baklava at home with homemade phyllo dough or jufka! It is very difficult to achieve the paper thinness but it is possible with enough practice. I must admit that I experimented on several occasions until I was able to perfect the entire process. The process below now works for me perfectly every time and the result is a crispy yet juicy baklava fresh from home! I learnt the recipe for jufka from ‘Baking with Sibella’ @ http://bakingwithsibella.com/.

Homemade Phyllo Dough (Jufka):

New book covers!

Hello dear friends!

Today, I’m sharing with you my new book covers. They’re versions 2.0 of the previously published ones.

Tara at FantasiaFrogDesigns created them for me. She really listened to my suggestions and let me assist her with the designs. Special thanks to her and also to my fabulous editor at Beachwalk Press, Pamela Tyner.

On His Honor is already for sale on various websites. I will give you the details in a separate post.

Hidden Desire will be out soon and Klondike Winter will be available sometime in March.

What do you think of these beautiful covers?

 

On His Honor

On His Honor is about honor, loyalty and of course, romance.
 
In a time of great turmoil, a beauty meets a beast who changes her life forever.
 
Emilia Crawford’s father is arrested in the name of King Henry VIII’s new reforms. The king’s men take him to the London Tower to await sentencing. In an attempt to save her father’s life, Emilia travels to London. One kiss from her father’s captor turns her life upside down.
 
When Jamie Kingsley is sent to arrest members of the Pilgrimage of Grace he never imagined he would meet a woman who would make him lose all reason, along with his heart. But he has a duty to fulfill, or he risks losing his head to King Henry VIII’s henchmen.

A Christmas Memory

It was Christmas 1980-something and one of my fondest childhood memories is the one where  I was making a snowman with my uncle Alan. Outside, we had lots of snow and it was the perfect amount for the biggest snowman ever.

I don’t recall much of that cold snowy evening. All I do remember was the laughter and the joy of the moment. I think that is the most important part. My uncle had created a precious memory for me.

Life is too short to focus on the negative stuff. As adults, we sometimes forget about having old fashion fun. We forget about laughing and living in the moment. We must reach deep within ourselves and bring out that child who is in each and all of us. She or he is there. Just let them out.

This holiday season, I hope you find joy and have lots of fun. Watch that crazy Christmas movie, listen to the fun songs, sing, laugh, make some awesome memories that will stay with you forever.

Happy Christmas!

Jackie
