In the Kitchen with Jess Bryant - Release Day Blitz Unbreakable Bond

If you ask anyone in my family, they’ll tell you that I don’t cook. As far as they know, most of my attempts at using my oven have resulted in smoke alarms sounding and firemen being called. They’re not wrong. I’ve never been a big fan of cooking and I will do almost anything to keep from having to bring dishes to family gatherings, even letting them believe I don’t know how to cook anything.

It’s not true mind you. I can cook. I just choose not to most of the time. So, instead of sharing some big fancy dish with you all, I’m going to share with you something that is easy to make and that goes over well at any gathering or party.

It’s called Neiman Marcus Dip (maybe because it’s rich? I don’t know. I just know it is super tasty and everyone seems to love it.)

Here’s what you’ll need:

5-6 green onions

8 oz. shredded cheddar cheese

1 ½ cups mayonaise

1 jar Hormel Real Bacon Bits

1 pckg. slivered almonds

Here’s what you do:

Chop the onions.

Grate the cheese.

Dump in the bacon bits and almonds.

Stir in the mayonnaise

Then stick it in the refrigerator for a few hours so the flavors can blend together

Voila! You have an amazing dip that will be the hit of the party and the best part is, you didn’t have to cook a thing! 

Ritz crackers are recommended for dipping but personally I prefer to use Wheat Thins. 
They’re thicker and don’t break as easily. But to each their own. 

I hope you enjoy this fun little dip. Now, I’ve made myself hungry and I’m off to whip up a big bowl of dip just for me.

xoxo - Jess

Book Description:

Sometimes fate gets it all wrong.

Zoey Kent has lived with that fact ever since she turned eighteen and learned that the man she loved could never be hers. He’s a born shifter, a wolf, and she’s a mere human. Fate doesn’t care if on paper they’re a perfect pair. She isn’t his fated mate and she’s resigned herself to the knowledge that someday, she’ll have to watch Michael mate with another. It’s never crossed her mind that there might be someone else out there for her, that she would be the one to mate another, to choose another over everything she’s ever known or wanted.

Sometimes fate gets it all right.

Rafe Hudson left his pack behind years ago. Physically and mentally scarred from an attack that left his parents and twin dead, he walked away from his responsibilities as Alpha. He never intended to return but lone wolf or not, he can’t leave Michael open to an attack he’s learned is coming for his only brother. What he didn’t know was that going home would mean scenting his mate, the one person in the world that could make him whole again, that could give him everything he thought he’d lost. His pack, his home and his family.

But fate always has a plan.

There’s no way Michael’s brother is her future, is there? Just like there’s no way that the girl his brother has loved since they were kids, was always meant to be his, right?

Only fate knows why they were brought together but there is one thing for sure, the sparks between Zoey and Rafe are undeniable. The bond between them is unbreakable. And together… they’ll change the face of the pack forever.

Excerpt 3

Ignoring the bite of pain, he reached through the bars and wound a hand in her hair. He tilted her face up and pressed his lips to hers. The silver burned his cheek where he couldn’t avoid the bars of his cell but it didn’t matter. Nothing did. Not when he finally, finally had the taste of his mate on his lips.
Sweet, so sweet. Her taste seeped inside of him and started a riot in his bloodstream. Her lips were soft and sweet and when they met his, it felt like a piece of the puzzle he’d always been missing slid into place.

How had he lived without this? All this time? All these years? And his mate had been right here, waiting for him.
