Tres Leches Cupcakes

Sadie Hoffmiller is enjoying her time in Santa Fe, New Mexico as best as she can. She would rather go home and spend time with her boyfriend Pete, but she knows that there's a killer after her, so she tries to make the best of staying in New Mexico. She stays busy by being an undercover informant for the BLM, which involves lots of digging in the hot, dusty desert and getting to know knew people. She's staying with Pete's cousin, Caro, who shares Sadie's love of baking and learning lots of new recipes to put into her black book. Sadie runs into trouble, it always seems to know where to find her, one day as she's digging at the dig site, when she and a co-worker, Margo dig up a couple of new dead bodies, where there's only supposed to be really old ones. This is the start of craziness for Sadie, before the craziness is over there will be several more dead bodies, Margo will be missing and Sadie will have hopefully recovered her prowess for detective work before it becomes too late for her.

I loved this book! I'm so glad that Sadie got her mojo back, she really didn't feel like herself in Banana Split, but in this book she's got her spunky, take charge attitude back, plus she's making some amazing recipes. I thought that it was kind of fun to see some QR codes sprinkled throughout this book. I can't wait to get the recipes from this book at Josi's website, there were several that I want to try, including the Tres Leches Cupcakes recipe, it looks amazing!

Deseret Bookshelf Plus Review

I'm super excited to be able to tell you about Deseret Bookshelf's newest feature, Plus. I actually first heard about plus coming six months ago at Deseret Book's ladies night. I thought it sounded pretty great and now that I've tried it, I think it's even better than it sounded. It's basically a subscription that you add on top of the Deseret Bookshelf App. If you have Deseret Book's Platinum membership, you pay only $6.99 a month or $69 a year. If you don't it's $9.99 a month or $99 a year. Either way that's a really good deal for what you are going to be getting.

Here's the deal. With plus, you get to listen to all of their audiobooks...for FREE! Something I noticed on this is that you get to listen to even the newest books that are just barely in the store for FREE. I love this! Who has the time to run to the store to grab the book the very day it comes out? Not me, I'm too busy chasing kids around to do that!

Not to mention - have you…

SeaQuest Aquarium Giveaway

For this week's Friday Favorite (I's only Wednesday!) I want to tell you about something new that I got to try out just last week. It's the SeaQuest Aquarium located in the Layton Hills Mall in Layton. 

This is a pretty new thing, it actually just opened in November. It's new, it's beautiful and there really is nothing like it located in Davis County. And actually, the way that it's been set up there isn't a whole lot like it out there. You see, it's not just an aquarium, it's really an interactive experience. There are only a few exhibits in the whole aquarium that have animals in them that you can't/shouldn't interact with. Those exhibits have high walls on them so you really can't interact with them anyway. Everything else has low walls. You can touch, feed, examine pretty much anything you see here. That makes it so much more than an aquarium.

I love the way it's set up in areas. Each of the rooms has a different and fun …
