Tricia Goyer-A Shadow of Treason

Hey all,

A little about A Shadow of Treason first, and then a way to enjoy it. Plus, come over and visit my personal blog for a great question and answer session with Tricia. You'll find that at:

I find women nowadays aren't taking the time to feed their own need for rest. We race around like crazy doing for everyone, working ourselves to death, and never truly allowing our bodies to destress. The idea today is to have you make a meal you will enjoy, pick up a book, put your feet up or soak in a bubble bath, and read. Let Tricia take you to another country, time, and experience. She does a really good job of it too.

No time for a vacation? Take one now, just for a few hours. Get the blood pressure down by taking your mind off the wild day, week, or like me...year!

So what's her new book, A Shadow of Treason about?
Book 2 in the Chronicles of the Spanish Civil War series

Sophie discovers that nothing is as she first imagined. When Walt, the reporter who helped her over the border, shows up again after Guernica is bombed, Sophie is given an impossible mission. She must leave behind the man she's fallen in love with and return to the person who betrayed her. Another layer of the war in Spain is revealed as Sophie is drawn into the international espionage schemes that could turn the tide of the war and help protect the soldiers from the International Brigade ... she must find a way to get a critical piece of information to Walt in time.

Now make this simple dish, run the bubble bath, LOCK the door and relax with a good book:-)
Cheesy Chicken

6 boneless skinless chicken breast halves
Salt and pepper to taste
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 cup chopped green onions
1 clove garlic, pressed
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1 tablespoon butter
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Lightly grease a baking dish.

Season chicken breasts with salt and pepper to taste; place on greased
baking dish and drizzle with olive oil. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, or until
chicken is almost cooked through.

While the chicken is cooking, in a skillet over medium heat, sauté onions,
garlic and pecans in the butter for three to four minutes. Remove from heat
and add cheese. Stir until cheese is blended with onion and pecan mixture.

Spoon cheese and pecan mixture over chicken. Return to oven and bake for 5
to 10 minutes, or until chicken is cooked through.

Sounds so yummy!
