Of course, there’s a great prize!
You will receive a fabulous beach tote, stuffed with goodies.
In addition, you will receive a copy of Jane Porter’s Flirting With Forty.
You will receive a copy of all tropical drink and food recipes submitted by the bloggers.
It’s like Summer in November!

Contest ends November 22, 2008. So hurry on over!

So… for the LOVE IN THE TROPICS CONTEST, I’m giving you a few choices for your entries:
What is your favorite tropical food or drink recipe (I’m Posting MaiTai’s on the 5th)
What was your favorite tropical vacation?
What was your favorite “girls only” vacation?
Facing Forty… is Forty “The New Thirty”?
Finding Love a 2ndTime Around

Here is a recipe that combines tropical food with something all of us from the U.S. will be eating in just over a week. If you are tired of the marshmallow variety of traditional thanksgiving sweet potatoes, give these a try:

Aloha Sweet Potatoes
4 to 5 medium sweet potatoes
1/2 cup butter
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup shredded coconut
Boil sweet potatoes in their jackets until tender, about 25 minutes. Let cool, then peel and cut into slices 1 1/2-inch thick. In a large skillet melt butter. Stir in brown sugar and water and cook on medium heat about 5 minutes. Reduce heat and add sweet potatoes to skillet. Cook gently; tossing lightly until sweet potatoes are glazed. Sprinkle with coconut before serving. Makes 8 servings.

I have just finished reading Flirting With Fourty, for the December Blog Tour, in which I will be participating. A full review will be posted on the 5th of December, the day of the blog tour. Check back for more Island fun and giveaways. For now just let me say that I really enjoyed the book, it was more than I was expecting.

Remember, go visit A Novel Menagerie for your chance to enter the contest.

I always make mine with coconut, too! But, I've never glazed them! I'm going to give it a shot!
