Jade’s Cowboy Crush

Sweet Montana Bride Series

by Kimberly Krey

Paperback, 320 pages

Single mother, Jade Miller, has just witnessed a murder. Now, set to testify against the cold-blooded killer, Jade must be placed under protection. While she is grateful to the kind folks who’ve offered to take in her and her son, Jade is surprised to find the man escorting them from L.A. to Montana is Gavin Emerson. A womanizing, far-too-attractive-for-his-own-good, rebel cowboy. Jade assures Gavin that she has sworn off men until her son is grown, but all too soon she finds herself fighting back feelings for the man who’s agreed to care for them.

Gavin wants nothing to do with ranch life. Not since the ugly fallout he had with his father over eight years ago. But when he agrees to come back, harboring Jade and her son for a time, Gavin falls in love with life on the land once again. Above that, he finds his heart has been captured by his lovely house guest, Jade Miller.

After reservations on both parts, the two are finally ready to open up and give their new-found love a try. Only they aren’t in the clear just yet, and as a dark and deadly threat falls upon them, Gavin finds that his bad-boy past may have led the danger right to their door.

Note: Though this novel is considered clean romance, it does contain passionate kissing scenes and a few mild curse words.

Smokin’ Hot Pizza Bomb Recipe & Excerpt

Jade’s Cowboy Crush, by Kimberly Krey

 

Because of my great love and appreciation for food – I absolutely love to cook! I often do food posts with my blog tours because food is just so much fun! In Jade’s Cowboy Crush, Jade and her son show Gavin how to make Pizza Bombs. I made these with a woman’s youth group while camping, and they were a total hit! Jade is just the type of mom who would look for fun ways to spice up the norm, so I knew this dish would be just right for her.

 

Before we get to the recipe, I’m going to start with an excerpt. Here, Jade and her four-year-old son, Luke are instructing Gavin (rebel cowboy offering witness protection on Emerson Ranch) on how to ready the dough:

 

Luke’s big brown eyes were pasted on a lump of dough as he smashed it down with his small hands.

“Here. Put a few scoops on,” she said. “Just on one side, remember.”

Luke did as she said, and started piling toppings on next.

“You need help?” Jade asked.


Gavin held her gaze. “Maybe.”

She smiled, seeming to hold a hint of that playful side she’d shown last week at the pond. “Okay.” Jade walked around the counter and stood beside him. Gavin didn’t miss the warmth of her arm as it grazed his. “You need to start with some flour.” She reached into the small measuring cup, pinching some in her fingers.

“And where does that go?” he asked.

Jade dropped it on the counter. “Here,” she said, “and here.” With movements too quick to stop, she smeared her fingers over one side of Gavin’s face.

Luke busted up.

 “Oh,” Gavin said, reaching for the measuring cup next. “Like this?” He sprinkled the flour into his open palm, rubbed his hands together, and cradled her face. With the soft, white powder coating his hands, he ran his thumbs over the light splash of freckles on her cheeks. He liked the way Jade didn’t fight it. Only stood there and smiled as he drew a line from the top of her forehead down to the tip of her nose.

She batted her lashes at him. “Is that all you got?”

But his eyes were already set on something more – those lips. Without breaking his gaze, Gavin traced a finger over the smooth curves of her mouth. The top lip first, followed by that full, bottom pout. The powdery substance barely clung to the softness there, creating the lightest sheen over their pretty, pink color.

He ran a thumb over them next, willing himself to let go and step away, wondering if he’d ever been so hungry in all his life.

 

Now for the recipe.

 

 

PIZZA BOMBS

 

~ 2-4 packages Pillsbury Biscuit Dough, as needed  (Could use favorite pizza dough if desired)

~ 1-2 Jars of your favorite Pizza sauce, as needed

~ Shredded cheese

~ Pepperoni

~ Any additional toppings desired

~ Heated Vegetable or Canola oil

 

 

1. Heat oil – at least 5 inches deep on medium heat. (let heat until ready)

 

2. Flatten dough on floured counter top until it’s about ten inches in diameter and approx. a quarter inch thick. (One for each person – fun for kids to do their own!)

 

3. Spread pizza sauce on one half of the dough. DO NOT take sauce to the edge. You’ll want to leave a quarter to a half inch to seal the dough around the edges.

 

4. Top the sauce as you would pizza, with your favorite toppings.

 

5. Fold dough over like a tart, leaving the side with toppings flat.  Pinch around the edges to get a nice, good seal. * important to get a good seal *

 

6. Carefully set tart into heated oil by slipping spatula underneath and lowering it until the dough slides off. (Parents only should do this step)

 

7. Let cook 6-10 min. each (possibly more) until golden brown. Cooking times will vary depending on heat. Test dough before eating by resting pizza bomb on paper towel and pulling at outer crust with a fork. If still doughy, place back in the oil. *If outer crust cooks too quickly, leaving center doughy, adequately reduce heat before placing back in the oil. Lower heat will allow the center cook *

 

 

Hope you’ll enjoy this recipe; my family sure loves it!
