Enjoy your 4th of July! May fun, family, and fireworks be the order of the day.
When I was given a copy of Date Night Dinners (Meals To Make Together For a Romantic Evening) by Sloane Taylor, I was worried about my ability to write a proper review. I’m not a great cook. I make the same few dishes, over and over again, because they are simple, don’t require a lot of prep time, and always turn out well. Furthermore, since I know the author is a frequent contributor to Divine Magazine, I suspected the recipes were way beyond my ability.
As I started to flip through the pages of Date Night Dinners, however, my anxiety eased. Not only were there a broad variety of categories from which to choose, the recipes were both straightforward and easy enough, even for me.
For this review, my husband and I actually made one of the side dishes, Homemade Applesauce, and we were thrilled with the results. I altered the recipe by adding cinnamon and omitting most of the sugar, and it still tasted absolutely scrumptious. Even my dubious 19-year-old son ate a bowl and asked if there was any left!
I put together a video of the experience, to show how easy and fun it was. Date Night Dinners (click HERE for preview) is available both in ebook and paperback format, and I encourage you to give it a try. Two thumbs up! ~ Suzanne

Although Wesley is increasingly attracted to Belle, she is already engaged. While Belle begins to regret her hasty promise to marry, she is bound by honor and duty to keep her pledge.
