Taste the Heat Release Day and Recipe

Today, Taste the Heat, by Rachel Harris goes live. {throws confetti and dances cray cray} (Yes, I just used cray cray as my daughter would say) I am very excited for all of you to read this hot and sweet romance novel. 

To celebrate the release I am going to share with you one of my favorite dessert recipes. I chose this as it is super simple and quick. Both of these reasons were important to me since I was reading Taste the Heat while I was cooking it. Obviously, I needed something that wouldn't take too much time away from my reading, but something sweet to eat while I finished the book. So hear you go, my loves! Let's spice up that kitchen with some cinnamon!

Peach Cobbler Dump Cake

2 (16 oz) cans of diced peaches in heavy syrup
1 box of yellow butter cake mix
1/2 cup of butter (sliced)
Cinnamon to taste

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Pour peaches into a 9x13 dish (I used glass). Sprinkle a bit of cinnamon on top of peaches. Pour cake mix directly on top of peaches and press firmly.  Place sliced butter on top of mix and sprinkle heavily with cinnamon. Bake for 45 minutes and serve with vanilla ice cream.

Now for a tasty quote from the book!

One sexy fire captain. One Cajun chef. One combustible kitchen…

When chef Colby Robicheaux returned home to New Orleans to save her family restaurant, the last person she expected to reconnect with was her brother’s best friend and her childhood crush. As tempting as a sugar-coated beignet, Jason is one dish she can’t afford to taste. Colby can’t wait to leave the place where her distrust of love and commitment originated and go back to Vegas.
Fire captain Jason Landry isn’t looking for love, either. Disillusioned by his past, he knows he should be focusing on finding the perfect mother for his daughter. But when he first sees Colby, all grown up and gorgeous, he can’t help but be drawn to her. And when she suggests a no-strings-attached fling, Jason can’t say no.
As their relationship grows more intense, Colby finds that Jason isn’t as easy to leave behind as she thought. Could turning up the heat on something real be worth the possibility of getting burned?
