Boleyn - Tudor Vampire - Cinsearae S., Author Recipe
A Cinsearae Specialty
- 16 nice-sized mushrooms (Remove stems and save for later)
- 1 stick of margarine
- 3 tbsp. Parmesan cheese
- 1 small onion
- 3/4 cup of seasoned bread crumbs
- 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
- 2 tbsp Recaito (check international foods section or other similar section of store)
- about 10-12 cooked shrimp
- 1 tbsp crushed garlic
- 3 pinches of Italian seasoning
- Chop onions until nearly fine and saute with half stick of butter until opaque. (Save remaining half of stick for later.)
In the meantime, chop up mushroom stems and shrimp until nearly fine. Add to onions. Add recaito and parmesean cheese, then cook on medium low until cheese melts. Add bread crumbs a little at a time until mixture has a 'stuffing-like' consistency.
Get a dark nonstick cookie sheet and spray lightly with cooking spray. Line up your mushroom caps in rows of four, touching. When mixture has cooled down a bit, add mixture to mushrooms. (it's okay to let them overflow a little!) Top them with shredded mozzarella cheese.
Melt remaining half of stick of margarine. Add garlic and Italian seasoning to butter and pour this evenly over the mushrooms. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes, and enjoy!
Boleyn - Tudor Vampire - Review by Martha A. Cheves, Author of Stir, Laugh, Repeat
‘I glanced at the Tower, once the place where I waited before my coronation, now the place that beheld my death. A face lingered in a window, watching the events, and I half-wondered if it had been Sir Thomas Wyatt. Poor, poor Thomas. Another wrongful death that would soon follow mine. I wanted to run, but retained my dignity. Even so, the guards would have caught me all too quickly. My strength availed me not during this wretched hour…. I paused on the last step to my pending death. The noose looked so thick, I feared my neck would slip out of it and my death would be botched. The executioner paused, as if not wanting to put it around my neck. “Forgive me for what I must do, Your Majesty,” he said to me.
Anne Boleyn – the Queen of England is to be hung for her betrayal of love and devotion to her husband the king. It seems that a number of people actually betrayed Anne by accusing her of these discretions. The Duke of Suffolk, Charles Brandon and his chancellor hated Anne from the beginning and filled King Henry with their stories of her being not only a whore but also a witch. Her own father turned his back on her and agreed with them. To not agree with them turned out to be unwise. It seems that those who did take a stand in the of defense of Anne ended up being beheaded.
But the death of Anne was not the end of Anne, as she herself found out just a few days after the hanging. And as she pulled herself up from her grave she started forming a plan of revenge for those who wronged her. A revenge that would be heard all over England for years to come.
I don’t think I have every read a book quite like Boleyn – Tudor Vampire. I’m not normally a big fan of this genre but decided to give it a try. I read this book in 2 days. At times it can be quite comical. The scene descriptions are vivid, very believable and at time became quite gruesome which is not something I normally enjoy. But I have to admit that it became a book that I had a very hard time putting down. If you are a Vampire Genre Reader, you will absolutely love this one.
