3-2-1 Bread – Moira Reid

I’m no chef, but a friend of mine gave me this recipe years ago, and I’ve made it more times than I can count. It’s fresh-baked bread for any occasion…just add a touch of whatever the occasion calls for. Add a little garlic to the bread, dill or some chocolate chips!

And now, the fast, easy bread I call 3-2-1 Bread:

3 cups self-rising flour

2 tablespoons sugar

1 beer

Mix it all together, and put the dough in a greased bread pan (I use my meatloaf pan). Bake at 350 for an hour. Pull it out, eat it.

(I’ve never had any leftovers when I make this.)



Rent-A-Husband, Inc.

Crete Gannon witnesses his brother’s murder and finds himself next on the hit list of a killer notorious for eliminating witnesses under police protection. He discovers the perfect place to hide, a location no one would think to look for him — Rent A Husband, Inc. His plan is simple: he’ll work under a false identity, cloistered safely away inside some anonymous, lonely, old lady’s house then put his brother’s killer away when he testifies at the trial.

But Tasha Henslow, a bed and breakfast owner whose building faces foreclosure, is not lonely and she’s not old. Nor, unfortunately, is she anonymous. He can get the work done while avoiding the killer, but not if she recognizes him. How long until she remembers the perfect night they spent together before she left him in a cold bed alone?
