Guest Post & Giveaway: Catching Liam by Sophia Bleu (Book Blitz)


Welcome to the Catching Liam Book Blitz. I am actually reading Catching Liam by Sophia Bleu right now to review in a couple weeks. I have to say, so far, so good. So today the author has provided us with a fun recipe for waffles that Liam makes in the book. And don't forget to enter a swag pack for the book below.

Catching Liam by Sophia Bleu
Publication date:  Summer 2013

Summary
Twenty-one year-old Jillian Nichols only has one rule when it comes to boys: catch and release. Boy-catching isn't just a game for Jillian and her friends, it's a lifestyle. After all, boys might be good for a dance or a drink and certainly a little under-cover action of the scandalous variety, but expect much else and you're bound for heart ache.

So when her best friends and fellow boy catchers start dropping like flies junior year, Jillian is determined to keep boys in her bedroom and out of her heart. Until she meets Liam McAvoy, the kind of guy that sticks around to make waffles and who can't—or perhaps won't—take a hint.

Study abroad student Liam doesn't want to be another notch on Jillian's bedpost. Actually he has much more interesting ideas for Jillian and her bedposts, but his student visa's set expiration date means he can't promise her forever. That doesn't mean he's going to walk away from the challenge of discovering why Jillian is hell-bent at keeping people at a distance.

Before long, neither is sure who is catching who—or if they're playing for keeps. Jillian knows one thing though: falling in love will not only break the only rule of boy-catching, it could also break her heart.

Liam’s “Caught You” Waffles


2 cups all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon salt

4 teaspoons baking powder

2 tablespoons white sugar

2 eggs

1 1/2 cups warm milk

1/3 cup butter, melted

Secret ingredient #1: 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Secret ingredient #2: 1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon


Directions

This recipe will make about 10-12 waffles.  The perfect amount to impress any roommates that straggle in, or to feast on if you’ve pulled an all-nighter.
 

1. Preheat waffle iron to desired temperature. I like it really hot.  I know, I know. That’s what she said.  Now would be a good time to make sure you push the iron far enough back on the counter to avoid any burns through accidental contact of your hands...or other areas. 


2. In a large bowl, sift together flour, salt, baking powder and sugar, and I do mean sift.  Don’t just throw it all in the bowl.  You have to give it a little attention.  Mix it up a little.  Don’t just set it aside.


3. In a separate bowl, beat the eggs. Here’s my trick.  If your girl’s still sleeping, separate the eggs first.  Whip the egg whites like they’ve been naughty until soft peaks form.  Stir in the milk, yolks, butter and vanilla. Pour the milk mixture into the flour mixture. Mix together until combined, but don’t overdo it.  Too much attention and they’ll come out tough instead of crisp and slightly chewy. 


4. Ladle the batter into a preheated waffle iron. Don’t get burned.  Cook the waffles until golden.  Refrain from getting distracted with extra-culinary activities.


5. Serve before she or the waffles get cold.

  6. This is so much fun! I love all the little comments added in. The secret ingredients sound like they would make the waffles extra tasty. Let me know how yours turn out. I don't have a waffle iron, or I'd be whipping these babies up. Thank you so much for sharing :D Jaclyn @ JC's Book Haven.

  7. Hi Jennifer! Thanks for stopping by my blog :) Oh, what goodies you have here! This book sounds a bit different. Normally it's the guys that are the love em' and leave em' type. It's kind of refreshing to see a female character act that way. Because let's face it: women can be just as bad as guys! Not that it is necessarily a bad thing for a young woman to serial date and have fun before settling down. If guys can do it, why can't we? But hey, this is all based upon the book summary. How is the book so far?

    Anyway, thanks for keeping in touch. I'll be back soon :)

    Best,
    Mia @ The Muses Circle

  9. ahaha. I love how the guest post is Waffles. So original. I may have to read her book for that sole reason alone. ;) Also... is he SCOTTISH? because if he is, I am wasting no time getting a hold of this book to read. Me and my accents... *sigh* I ask because.. it says he is a study abroad student in the description, but does not say where he is from. Then in the cute little image below, it says.. Scottish boys and kilts. I don't want to just to any conclusions or anything in case there is a 0.01 percent chance I am drawing the wrong conclusion... but....1+1= hot Scottish guy who cooks. ME, please! lol.
