Cheryl Miller, Virginia This Morning

What fun I had today with host Cheryl Miller and all over at Central Virginia’s Ch6/WTVR’s Virginia This Morning.  Thanks everyone who watched as I talked Mary Burton I'LL NEVER LET YOU GO cover hi resabout I’ll Never Let You Go, how baking helps me creatively, and a bit about my research into both the Nashville setting and  the serious topic of stalking, which is a key element of the story. If you missed the show when it was broadcast and streamed live, you can check it out at


While I was there, I had planned to share one of the recipes I’m making for the Thanksgiving holiday but critical issues  intervened as eyes and ears turned to President Obama and his press conference live from the G20 Conference in Turkey.


However, I did  go ahead and bake it and the show taped the demonstration to air sometime in the next week.  I’ll let you know when the segment is available, but in the meantime, here’s the recipe. I hope you, your  friends and loved ones enjoy it as we all pause to give thanks.
