Eden is the author of 3 Lei Crime KindleWorld books –
A Snake in Paradise ~ SEAL of a Monk ~ Charade at Sea
You can find her books on Amazon at: https://www.amazon.com/Eden-Baylee/e/B004Z8Q6UQ/


HAUPIA (Hawaiian Coconut Pudding), is mentioned in “A Snake in Paradise.” In the story, Haupia is served as part of a traditional Hawaiian luau. The pudding has the consistency of Jell-o and custard and is EASY to make. Since no Valentine’s Day is complete without something sweet for your sweetie, be sure to add Haupia to your menu!

1 cup whole milk
1 can coconut milk
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup sugar
2/3 cup corn starch
1 pinch of salt
Toasted coconut

Cook coconut milk over medium heat in saucepan until hot. In a separate bowl, combine milk, vanilla, sugar, corn starch, and salt and mix until blended. Pour ingredients into the coconut milk and whisk until it thickens. Fill a 9×9″ pan with the mixture, spread evenly, and chill in the refrigerator for 2-3 hours. Sprinkle with toasted coconut. Cut and serve cold.

HOP to the next author – the amazing Emily Kimelman!

Spreading the Love – Blog Hop

What better way to spread the love on Valentine’s Day than by indulging your senses with: reading; listening; tasting; and feeling it?


Reading – There are some wonderful authors who are part of this blog hop, so browse their sites and sample their writing. You can also win some great prizes while you’re at it.

Listening – I’m a huge fan of music, and sexy songs are great for this time of year. Below is a sample of my all-time favorites:

1. Cream / Prince & The New Power Generation

2. Sex Bomb / Tom Jones

3. Let’s Get It On / Marvin Gaye

4. Slave To Love / Bryan Ferry

5. Ain’t Got No/I Got Life / Nina Simone

6. Lovin’ In My Baby’s Eyes / Taj Mahal

7. A Girl Like You / Edwyn Collins

8. For Our Elegant Caste / Of Montreal

9. I’m A Man / Black Strobe

10. I’m on Fire / Bruce Springsteen

11. Can’t Get Enough Of Your Love, Babe / Barry White

12. Start Me Up / The Rolling Stones

13. The Jean Genie / David Bowie

14. Brown Eyed Girl / Van Morrison

15. Love to Love You Baby / Donna Summer

16. SuperFreak / Rick James

Tasting – I’m not a sweets-type person, but I do indulge in dark chocolate this time of year. It’s great for the libido: Champagne Truffles – Teuscher of Switzerland is my favorite.

Finally … feeling – Feel the love. I don’t mean the saccharine Hallmark card sentiments, but love the one you’re with. If not with anyone, no worries, remember to love yourself—you deserve it.

To get to the next stop on the blog hop, just go here . I’m giving away a hard copy of my book, Fall into Winter as part of this blog hop.  To be eligible to win, leave a comment here on this post.

Stay sexy,
