Roasted Figs with Goat Cheese

Posted by A Gluten Free Mom on August 9, 2014 in Recipes |

Oh my! So simple, yet so divine! The short lived fig season has come around and Bountiful Baskets offered a case of figs at an amazing price.  Per usual, I could not resist, but have gotten better and learned to split a case with a friend.

The first thing I made, as soon as I got home, was this:

Roasted Figs with Goat Cheese

Roasted Figs with Goat Cheese


  • Figs
  • Goat Cheese


  1. Preheat broiler on low
  2. Slice figs in half lengthwise
  3. Break the goat cheese into small pieces (depending on the size of your figs, you want them small enough to fit onto of the fig, but large enough to cover a good portion of the fig's center)
  4. Place the figs cut side up on a sheet pan
  5. On top of each fig half place a dollop of goat cheese
  6. Broil for about 5 minutes, until the goat cheese is slightly browned and the figs are soft.

On Wings of Chaos Book Review and $10 Amazon GC Giveaway

Posted by A Gluten Free Mom on August 6, 2014 in Giveaway, Review |


On Wings of Chaos (The Revenant Wyrd Saga #5)

The captivating sequel to A Guardian of Shadows.

In the mystical lands of the Great Realms, Angelica, Jovian, and Joya search for their kidnapped sister, Amber. Their quest has led them through many dangers and revelations, but nothing has prepared them for what’s about to come.

A dream reveals what Angelica and Jovian are, but what does it mean for their future? There’s little time to dwell on this, for the chaos dwarves, the scourge of the Realm of Earth, are gathering at the gates of the Guardian’s Keep. The dwarves have the stone Wyrders’ Bane, and they’ve shown they know how to unleash its plague upon all those who wield the magical force of wyrd. With casters neutralized, a mighty blow has been dealt to the allied forces. The dwarves and trolls attack the keep, and the struggle to survive the war in the north is upon them.

Angelica, Jovian, and Joya’s journey is far from easy, but the future looks even bleaker when visions of a gathering darkness in the west and a congregation of angels could mark the beginning of the final war on the Ever After.

My Two Cents:
This is a series that you really do have to read in order. Now, this is not a bad thing, but it does make for some parts that will leave you saying, “huh?”. So, if you haven’t already, grab the first couple of books, get yourself up to speed and then dive right in! Simmons has a knack for drawing me in and helping me get lost in his words. The worries of the day fade away as the Realm of the Earth fades into view.

The various story lines are beginning to converge, all save Amber’s. And it is Amber that I am dying to know about! Once again, I am left satisfied with the added aspect of the story that I have, but am left wanting to know what the heck has happened to poor Amber!

About the Author

Travis has been writing since he was 14. He began writing a book called “The Calling of the Two” and while writing that on and off he started uncovering another idea.

“Yes, this is all well and good, but what about before? What happened in the world before these characters came into it?” He always knew there was a “before” and as he started wondering about it he got ideas. At first they were little ideas but as he discovered the names for his characters a whole story about them emerged.

Travis started working on The Revenant Wyrd Saga several years back and he is very happy he did because hearing and documenting Jovian and Angelica’s story has been one wild ride for him. He has also written the Infernal Design series.

He lives in a small town at the base of the Adirondack Mountains and hoofing around my neck of the woods gives him a ton of inspiration for his novels. He loves research, and speculating on different ideas and theories.
