“The piano towered over everything. It seemed so massive, so out of place that you had to squeeze around it, or else crawl underneath the belly of the thing.
But when mom played it, all that did not matter. The walls vanished and so did the clutter, because it was so riveting to watch her. You could see her long, delicate fingers as they went flying over the keys, to the point of turning, magically, into a blur. Her hands became transparent, and her ring, I remember, turned into a glow. She was air, she was music! Even when she stopped playing, those strings inside were still reverberating.”
“A Favorite Son sets brother against brother in an age-old quest for power. With each of them vying for their parents’ love and respect, the winner comes to discover his victory is hollow… that sometimes it is better to lose the battle and thereby perhaps win the war. A well-written story that will hold your attention to the end. Highly recommended!” – Dan Glover, Author

Mother’s Day Breakfast ideas: Almond French Toast
(The secret ingredient? Lots of heart…)
6 slices bread
1/4 cup milk
1-1/2 teaspoons almond extract, divided
2 tablespoons plus 1 cup butter, divided
3 tablespoons confectioners’ sugar
Additional confectioners’ sugar
Sliced fresh strawberries
Cut out bread slices with a 3-3/4-in. heart-shaped cookie cutter; discard trimmings.
In a shallow bowl, combine the eggs, milk and 1/2 teaspoon almond extract. Dip bread on both sides in egg mixture. In a large skillet, melt 2 tablespoons butter. Cook bread hearts for 2-3 minutes on each side or until golden brown.
For almond butter, in a small bowl, combine confectioners’ sugar and remaining butter and extract; mix well. Sprinkle French toast with additional confectioners’ sugar. Serve with almond butter and strawberries.
Enjoy 🙂 And don’t forget to share your recipe with me!
