What’s Cooking with Lex Chase! Recipe + Giveaway

August 18, 2016


Hello, everyone! I’m Lex Chase and today I’m here to dish about my new release Urban Fairy Tale!

Urban Fairy Tale is the grand finale to the Screw-up Princess and Skillful Huntsman Trilogy where our heroes dude Princess Taylor Hatfield and his true love jackass Huntsman Corentin Devereaux take one last journey to save all of Enchant kind.

The villain of the series is Taylor’s brother, Atticus Hatfield who is generation’s current Snow White. And with Snow White, comes the iconic apple. Atticus himself is actually allergic to apples and all things apple related. From the fruit itself, to the pectin, to even the very scent of apple potpourri.

However, fairy tales are full of sweets from cakes and cookies, to gingerbread houses to lure in unsuspecting children.

How about this sweet and deadly treat to stop Snow White in his tracks? Why don’t you try to save the world with my grandmother’s very own applesauce cake? Enjoy this wicked delight!

Author Bio:

Lex Chase once heard Stephen King say in a commercial, “We’re all going to die, I’m just trying to make it a little more interesting.” Now, she’s on a mission to make the world a hell of a lot more interesting.

Weaving tales of cinematic, sweeping adventure—and depending on how she feels that day—Lex sprinkles in high-speed chases, shower scenes, and more explosions than a Hollywood blockbuster. Her pride is in telling stories of men who kiss as much as they kick ass. If you’re going to march into the depths of hell, it better be beside the one you love.

Lex is a pop culture diva, her DVR is constantly backlogged, she has intense emotions about Hannibal’s Hannigram, and unapologetically loved the ending of Lost. She wouldn’t last five minutes without technology in the event of the apocalypse and has nightmares about refusing to leave her cats behind.

    My favorite dessert is German chocolate cake. I’m not a chocoholic; rather it is the frosting I love! I even got my grandmother’s recipe and made it from scratch once. The frosting was challenging to make, but so worth it!

  2. Trix says:

    I bake a lot (and have gotten heavily into ice cream-making), though if push comes to shove, I’d say a cookie is the most versatile, perfect-for-all-occasions thing! My favorites tend to vary, though I like browned-butter chocolate chip a lot right now…

    Thanks for sharing the recipe with us. My sister-in-law loves blueberry squares and I do enjoy making them. I also enjoy a nice apple crumble pie.

  4. Jen CW says:

    Thanks for the recipe. My favorite dessert is our family’s old fashioned cookies with icing. So good and so many memories.

  5. Lex Chase says:

    Thanks guys! These tasty goods sound awesome!

    @Susan my dad LOVES German Chocolate Cake. But he’s diabetic so now we have to make a sugar free version. But you’d be surprised how decadent it still is! That frosting…man so tasty.

    @Trix cookies are the best. Always! A friend and I had a laugh how there’s warnings of “OMG! NEVER EAT RAW COOKIE DOUGH!” and we both were like… we ate raw cookie dough all our lives and didn’t die? In fact we think baking them ruins the experience. LOOOOOL

    @H.B. my Mom loooooves blueberries. She’s from Maine and blueberries are the thing. So once in a while she’ll make an amazing blueberry cake or muffins. The only thing I never liked how it makes your mouth purple! LOL

    @Jen I have such a fondness for iced cookies! I have memories of making them with my Girl Scout troop. All the sprinkles, and frosting, and food coloring EVERYWHERE.

    Dark chocolate cake! Unfortunately, I’m really bad at baking, so I can only have it when somebody else feels like baking… On second thoughts, maybe that’s fortunate. I would not fit my trousers otherwise! ;)
    Thank you for the recipe (I shall give it my best, but the final result is not likely to be edible… I shall try it anyway!)

    I’m not really a big sweets fan, but I do like to bake, so I loved seeing that recipe above. My favorite dessert (probably because it’s not so sweet) is tiramisu.

  8. Lex Chase says:

    @Susana LOL I love to bake. I bake when I’m stressed out. Which is probably not a good idea. I’m a big fan of raw cookie dough. Why bake it? It just ruins it!

    @Waxapplelover I loooooove tiramisu! LOVE IT. I can make a pretty good one! But when I get a nice one in a restaurant, omg heaven!
