My newest release, Dinner For Two, is set in restaurant and food plays a pivotal role in bringing the two MC, Sonia and Tony, together. Since the holidays are almost upon us, I thought I’d share an easy recipe that not only looks pretty when served, but tastes heavenly. I know both Tony and Sonia would approve! Hope you enjoy it Eileen
Wheel of brie – triple works best, but double works fine too)
Canister of crescent rolls OR a package of Phyllo dough
1/3 cup of chopped pecans
¼ cup Craisins
¼ cup honey
1 Tbsp dried rosemary
* Egg Wash (egg and 2 Tbsp of water whisked together) – if using Phyllo Dough
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Combine pecans, Craisins, honey and rosemary in a small bowl. Unroll crescent rolls and flatten (pinch perforations together to avoid holes) to make a “sheet” OR unroll several sheets of the phyllo dough. Set dough aside.
Scoop mixture over top of brie in the center, careful not to go over the sides. Drape crescent rolls or phyllo dough over the brie then flip it over and seal/pinch to completely cover the wheel. Flip it back over and set on the parchment paper lined baking sheet. If using the phyllo dough, brush the top with the egg wash to help the brie bake more evenly and create a shiny golden color.
Bake at 375 for about 15 minutes, then serve with fancy crackers or sliced apples. Enjoy!

Sonia Davenport has dreams of coordinating and planning special events. When she’s given the opportunity to plan a dinner for her boss and his shareholders, she jumps at the chance to make everything perfect. Helping her plan the special night is the head chef of the restaurant, Tony Mancinni, who is not only charming but goes out of his way to make Sonia feel special during the entire planning process.
The dinner party almost turns disastrous when an employee mixes up the orders and sets out the wrong food. In a mad rush to save the dinner, Sonia and Tony realize their attraction to each other when things heat up in the kitchen. However, Tony has to convince Sonia that he wants more than just an extra set of hands in his restaurant – he wants her to stay the night so he can convince her to stay for good.
