Recipe & Book with
Ilona Fridl

First of all, I want to thank Vicki for hosting me on her blog!

You're most welcome, Ilona!!!
        Simple Lemon Angel Shortcake
My family is all for simplicity and here's a simple way to make a delicious shortcake for summer. My daughter made this one for Mother's Day. We've always loved angel food, because it sponges up the fruit juices better than the biscuit type of shortcake.
A day ahead, prepare berries. Wash fruit and slice into container or bowl. Add ½ cup of sugar and gently mix. Cover and put in refrigerator.
Prepare 1 package of angel food cake mix as directed on package except substitute lemon-lime soda for the water. Add 1 teaspoon grated lemon zest as you are mixing the batter. Pour into cake pan and bake as directed on package. After cake is cool, slice and put on plate. Take berries and spoon over cake slice, both fruit and juice. You may top with whipped cream or ice cream, if you wish.

A naked man in a graveyard… Detectives Amos and Sarah Darcy have dealt with quite a few unusual mysteries, but who cut down the naked man in the graveyard with a broadsword at midnight?


Around two 'o clock that afternoon, Sam came in to see them. “Well, we know who the man is. He was identified by his wife and brother. He's Abner Wells and works as a bookkeeping clerk at First National Bank.”

Amos stroked his mustache. “That doesn't sound like a wild-eyed pagan to me. Did you get a chance to question his wife?”

“She's Lidia and was quite upset as you may guess. I asked her if she knew about the spiritualist group and she didn't know anything about it.”

“How about his brother?”

“His brother is Calvin Wells. He's a liner captain working for a passenger company and he said he never heard of a group like that.”

Sarah was silent for a moment. “It's possible she's covering up something. Seems to me if a model citizen was involved in a group like that, they wouldn't want it general knowledge what they were doing.”

Sam glanced at her. “You may be right. I'm going to the bank to question people who knew Wells there. Since you're doing all this research on spiritualism, could you find a way to get into one of these groups?”

Sarah thought for a moment. “Maybe it would be better for me to work undercover. Amos would still be well known in the community.”

Amos studied her. “As long as they don't try to sacrifice you. Then I will have something to say.”

“I could disguise myself. Kata could help me with that.” Her cousin worked in costuming at the Golden North theater.

Sam nodded. “If you do, keep me informed of where you go and what you do. That way we can keep an eye on you.”

Sarah sobered. “Yes, we know it can be dangerous, don't we?”
