Killer Pesto

I am just bookmarking a recipe I want to try. There was a restaurant in Ketchikan, Alaska called Polar Treats that made the best turkey pesto wraps, and I've been thinking I want to try to make them myself now that I don't live there.

Changing Themes?

I was thinking about songs fitting into cultural ideals. When I was a child (or younger) there were a lot of country and folk-style songs with the general theme of one lover that went off to the big time and left the one they wanted at home alone waiting for them.

The chemistry between Dante and Nadia was there from the start. I really liked the humorous dialogue between these two. After Dante delivered Nadia into "enemy hands", I kept rooting for their safety but also that they'd reach that happily-ever-after and absolutely loved the final scenes that show this happening. I was also got a bit of an adrenaline rush from reading some of the scenes in this story. I won't include any spoilers about those scenes as that would take away the surprises Michelle Perry included in her story. But I'd like to! Hard not to talk about a book without talking about those! I'll tease you though... there is a scene that reminds of something out of Point Break and it isn't surfing.

It is my story that has surfing in it (Lord of the Night in Relic). If you …
