Looking Out The Window: Emily Conrad Talks About Her Book, Justice. Gives Away An E-Book

A Warm Welcome to Emily Conrad
Emily will give away an e-Book of Justice to a U.S. resident.

Hi Emily, first, tell us a little about yourself.

Hi! I’m Emily Conrad, and I write Christian romances. My husband and I own two rescue dogs—an elderly pit bull mix who is snoring peacefully as I type, and an energetic coonhound who’s keeping an eye on me in hopes of going for a walk.

Lots of writers were avid readers as children. How about you? If so, what did you read?

To Whet Appetites
For a favorite recipe, I've dug out my recipe for Spinach Dip. This has been popular for a long time, and many of you may already have this one, but, in that case, let it be a reminder of a rightfully popular dip. Very delish!

1 package chopped frozen spinach, thawed, rained, and squeezed
1 package Knorr vegetable soup mix
8 oz. sour cream
1 cup mayo
1 can water chestnuts, chopped

Mix all ingredients!! This is often served in a bread bowl, but is good with bagel c…
