Holidays are a time for giving and for sharing, so I'll be doing a little of both here. To start, I'm sharing a holiday recipe. Truth be told, I'm not much of a cook. My talents lie elsewhere, if you know what I mean ;-)

So, here is a very simple recipe for a delicious holiday cranberry sauce...on the spicy side, like my fiction.

Spicy Cranberry Sauce

12-oz pkg fresh cranberries
1-3/4 cups sugar
1/2 cup water
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground allspice
1/8 tsp ground ginger
1/8 tsp ground cloves

Combine all ingredients in a large saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, until berries pop and the mixture thickens, about 20 minutes. Transfer to serving bowl and refrigerate until chilled.

Now it's time for HOLIDAY GIVING!

D.J. didn’t skip a beat when Roxie led him to her closet. He started to go through her wardrobe, which took a considerable amount of time. He finally held up a tiny red slip dress, with several rows of narrow rhinestone straps that crisscrossed in back. 
“Try this one on for me. And take your hair down, please.” 
Roxie rolled her eyes at him, but took the dress into her dressing area and put it on. The bodice of the dress was very small and the thin, clingy fabric barely covered her nipples, emphasizing her full, round breasts. The back of the dress dipped down to right above the crack in her derriere. The dress was so short that she could not bend over without exposing her cheeks. She had only one pair of tiny panties that could be worn with this dress, and she slipped on the lace thong, which was attached to a tiny triangle of material that barely covered the intended area. She came out of the dressing room, expecting him to say, “Forget it.” 
“Perfect! Now put on these shoes.” He held out a pair of Stuart Weitzman high-heel sandals with a rhinestone ball decorating the clear strap across her toes. 
“D.J., are you sure? This is the dress I wore last Halloween to a ‘Pimp and Prostitute’ party.”
