Turmeric Butter Spread

Turmeric is well known for its incredible anti-inflammatory properties, its ability to strengthen the immune system, and detoxification which supports liver health.

Although I often use Turmeric on roasted and mashed potatoes and in curry dishes, I recently decided to season butter with it. I was pleasantly surprised how delicious it was.

New England Authors Expo

Marilynn Carter Steve Carter 1Wow, summer is flying by quickly and before it does, I wanted to let everyone know about the New England Authors Expo Steve and I recently attended at the Danversport Yacht Club. It was a beautiful sunny day; one like we haven’t seen for some time as this has been quite a rainy summer. About 70 authors, some publishers, and local media people attended the expo and Steve played music for a few hours while people mingled and networked with each other. This was our first such event and we were surprised to find so many talented and interesting authors all under one roof. The event was hosted by Chris Obert of Pear Tree Publishing. We were quite impressed how smoothly the event ran. Besides enjoying the beautiful weather and a gorgeous setting, we sold some books, traded a few books, and had some amazing conversations. We also had the opportunity to meet the founders of the group Independent Publishers of New England, became members and are looking forward to attending their meetings and networking events. It’s great days like these that make independent authors happy!
