#TastyTuesday ~ Cinnamon Tortilla Crisps

Hi, everyone! I'm back with another quick and tasty treat for your Tuesday. Cinnamon tortilla crisps - you know, like the treats you get after a meal at your favorite Mexican restaurant? They taste sooo good, and they are sooo simple to make. Here we go:

Ingredients:

6-8 medium sized flour tortillas
3-4 tablespoons butter (spreadable, or to make this super-low calorie, us Promise or I Can't Believe It's Not Butter spray)
Jar of Cinnamon Sugar

Directions:

Pre-heat the oven to 375 degrees. Using a pizza cutter (or scissors) cut the tortilla shells into triangles and then spread (or spray) 1 side of each triangle with butter. Sprinkle the cinnamon sugar over that side until it is coated. Flip the tortilla over and spread/spray that side with butter and then sprinkle the cinnamon sugar again. Arrange the triangles on a cookie sheet and bake for 10-12 minutes. Remove from the oven and place on a serving plate. Turn around and your kids will have eaten them all.

*Note: My tortillas above are not triangular...that's because bebe helped and she decided we needed ALL shapes. So we had cinnamon squares and rhomhi and octagons and triangles*

#TeaserTuesday ~ The Daughter He Wanted

Hi, all! I'm back with another Teaser Tuesday ~ This time from my new Harlequin SuperRomance, The Daughter He Wanted:

Alex buzzed back that he would meet her there and before she could retype the blow-off message Paige tossed her phone into her bag.
It was ridiculous, really, all the weird scenarios that had played out in her head over the past two days. Since inviting him into her home, she’d had a nightmare that he fought her for custody, and then a made-for-TV dream about them falling in love and living happily ever after, complete with more tawny-haired, crooked-smiling kids in her house. Her fifth graders were studying a unit on the human body and Paige caught herself drawing Alex’s image as the model for the male face.

Now she’d have to grade at least two dozen renditions of Alex’s warm eyes and full lips. Paige sighed. This was not how a mature adult would react. A mature adult would hammer out the details of visitation through lawyers. The only lawyers Paige knew were friends of her parents, though, and she wasn’t about to call that kind of drama into her life.

She could do this on her own.
