Holiday Hit Recipe!

Christmas Greetings from Jill Elizabeth Nelson!

It's the day after our official commemoration of Christ's birth, but the holiday festivities continue. Many of you probably still have Christmas gatherings to attend as families juggle his side, her side, in-laws, and outlaws. My extended family won't make it all together until January 4, so the season does tend to stretch out l-o-n-g, especially with a mid-week Christmas Day.

If you're looking for a simple and yummy dish to bring to your next gathering--one that has broad-spectrum appeal across ages and tastes, here's one that is a must at our family festivities. I warn you, though, that you may have to double or triple the recipe, because the casserole dish does tend to get licked clean!

Scalloped Corn

1 can whole kernel corn
1 can cream style corn
3/4C soda crackers, crushed
1 1/2C milk
1 egg, beaten
2T sugar
2T melted butter
1t salt
1/8t pepper

Topping: 1C soda crackers, crushed, mixed with 2T melted butter

Bake in uncovered casserole dish at 350 degrees for one hour. (For double or tripled recipes, I recommend baking at least 1 hour and fifteen minutes. Longer, if necessary. But be sure to check that the topping is not becoming overly dark.)

New Year's Day is the next official holiday swiftly approaching. With the dawning of 2014, I anticipate the release of Frame Up in January and Shake Down in August from Love Inspired Romantic Suspense. Watch for Frame Up in bookstores and stores like Walmart by January 15. Or click here for immediate availability on-line:

Here's the back cover teaser:


Stranded in a blinding snowstorm, Laurel Adams must pin her hope of survival on a handsome stranger. The single mother and her teen daughter take refuge in his remote Rocky Mountain cabin. But Laurel's anything but safe when she discovers a dead body in her trunk . . . and becomes the prime suspect in a murder investigation. Her rescuer, millionaire David Green, knows what it's like to be accused. Three years ago he was arrested for a crime he didn't commit--an unsolved case that still haunts him. With the clock ticking, can they stop a cold-blooded killer with deadly ties to them both?


  1. Thank you for the recipe. It sounds delicious!

  2. You're welcome, Melanie. Have a joyous and blessed New Year!
