Soul Taker Secrets – The Council Of Twelve Favorite Dessert


We know for quite a while now that Katie loves to cook for her family. As the respective family grows, more and more favorite dishes of the council members and their consorts become known.

But there is one dish the entire ‘Council of Twelve’ would ‘die for.’ (Not literally, of course, since they are the most powerful individuals in existence, but you get the main picture.)

Today the consorts have agreed to publish the recipe. (And no, it’s not Katie’s recipe. That much I can tell you.). In case you are going to try out ‘The Council of Twelve’ member’s favorite dessert, please let me know how you like it.


Tiramisu

(for 8 servings)

Ingredients:

4 egg yolks

3.52 ounces refined sugar

1 organic lemon

1.1 pounds mascarpone

1.35 fluid ounces Grand Marnier

5.05 fluid ounces very strong, freshly brewed espresso

7.93 ounces ladyfinger cookies

2 Tbsp. dark cacao or chocolate powder

 

Instructions:

  1. In a high bowl, mix the four egg yolks to the highest mixer speed and add the refined sugar spoon by spoon until the sugar has dissolved.
  2. Wash the lemon with hot water, wipe it dry, and rasp the peel’s yellow part into the mascarpone. Don’t rasp the white, lower part of the peel. Stir the mascarpone with the lemon peel
  3. Mix the mascarpone spoon by spoon with the egg/sugar mass and prepare a big, shallow form. Mix the Grand Marnier with the cooled strong espresso in a small bowl.
  4. Half of the ladyfinger cookies should now be briefly dipped into the espresso, pulled out, and then spread out on the ground of the shallow form. Cover it with half of the creme and smooth it down.
  5. Take the rest of the ladyfinger cookies, dip them and cover the creme in the form with them. Then use the rest of the creme to spread it on top of the second cookie-layer and smooth it down.
  6. The dessert goes into the refrigerator for at least four hours.
  7. Shortly before serving, use the cacao powder (chocolate powder) and dust the entire form through a sieve.

If you did everything right, the dessert should look like this:

Enjoy! And if you can guess which consort’s recipe this is, you can get the e-book of one of the first three books in ‘The Council of Twelve’ series for free!

Creating a Universal Amazon Link – One Link Amazon Sites in all Countries

There is a universal Amazon link to Amazon Sites in all countries. Don Massenzio shows us how to get it. Thank you so much Don!

Author Don Massenzio

I posted this tip a while ago and got some positive feedback. If you set up buying links for your books, many of you are probably posting Amazon links for each country that you think your book will likely realize some sales.

There is no need to do this.

I was getting frustrated when I ran a free book promotion weekend and experimented with placing a Facebook ad that reached out to multiple countries. My dilemma with doing this is that I didn’t have a way to post all of the links for the various Amazon sites in other countries on my ad without it looking clumsy.

I searched for a way to create a universal link for my book. A universal link, when clicked by a potential reader, is designed to take them to my book on the appropriate Amazon page for their country.

All they needed to do was…

How to add the license widget to your sidebar

A loyal reader of my blog asked me yesterday how I added the license widget to my sidebar. Since there might be others who are eventually interested in how to do that, I decided to take the time and publish a step-by-step guide.

Now: Please remember that you might have chosen another theme for your blog. Therefore don’t count on the image dimension or font size that’s given within this guide. These dimensions are for my blog and picture size to match the theme.

All right: Let’s get started:

 


1. Download the license .jpg to your computer picture library.

2. Go to your WordPress “Admin” Page and click “Appearance”.

3. Then pick “Widgets” and scroll down to “Image”.

4. Click on the “Image” button and drag it up to the sidebar. Place it where you want the license to appear.

5. Click onto the “Image” button to open the widget, by using the “arrow” on the right side.

6. Download the “license” image to your media file and add its URL to the sidebar.

7. After downloading it, you got the “dimension” there which you can change by clicking the “Edit image” button.

8. The URL of the picture you can find direction underneath the “dimensions” on the right side. Copy and paste it into the widget.

9. Add the license text to the “caption” of the sidebar. Adjust it where necessary, insert your name, your blog name and the year.

Unauthorized use and/or duplication of this material without express and written permission from this blog’s author and/or owner is strictly prohibited and violates copyright laws in the country you are reading this work in as well as in the country you are trying to re-publish this work in. Re-blogs are accepted if they are clearly linked to this blog and its respective post. ………………………………………(Add your name), 20XX

 

10. Change the picture size in the widget if necessary. You want it to fit into your blog theme. If you leave it empty, WordPress will adjust the image size and it might be over dimensionally blown up.

11. As soon as you’re done and completed the widget, don’t forget to SAVE your work and close it.

12. Last but not least: Go to your WordPress blog and open it. If done everything right, your Sidebar widget should look similar to this now:

I hope this guide is of any use for new bloggers. If you have questions, please don’t hesitate to ask them, either in the comment section or by using the form widget in my sidebar, which will contact my email.

Have a fun and exciting “widget”-time!

Warm regards
