Bid on a critique

If anyone is interested in a detailed 30 page critique of a contemporary romance manuscript, I'm offering one in Brenda Novak's Annual Online Auction for Diabetes Research.
To bid on other items, here's the link: http://brendanovak.auctionanything.com/Home.taf
To learn more, please read below:
As a New York Times & USA Today bestselling author, Brenda has been able to count on her fans and her peers to support her annual online auctions, which runs May 1 – May 31st, helping her raise over $1.6 million so far!
Brenda is an active mother of five whose youngest son, Thad, was diagnosed with Type I Diabetes at the age of five. There began her personal crusade to fight a disease that affects millions. The 2011 statistics on diabetes are alarming — and clearly establish a challenge Brenda is trying to meet: improve lives by helping to raise money to battle this devastating disease. Data released by theADA January 26, 2011 reveals there are 25.8 million children and adults in the United States — thus 8.3% of the population have diabetes. Another 79 million people have prediabetes. In 2010, 1.9 million new cases of diabetes were diagnosed.
Thank you for supporting this very worthwhile cause!

Hi! Welcome to Fork it Up Fridays! Each Friday, I share a delicious recipe that I've tried and enjoyed. Some may be a family favorite while others may be something my sister or daughter passed on to me. Hope you enjoy!

Today I'm sharing a recipe given to me by my daughter. She and her husband love spicy foods so if you're a fan, you may like this.


2 tsp. chipotles, finely chopped
2 tbsp. honey
1/2 cup mayo
1/4 cup fresh lime juice
4 cups grated cabbage, shredded thin
4 cups red cabbage, shredded thin
1 cup red onion, sliced very thin
1 cup green onion, finely chopped
1/2 to 1 cup carrot, shredded
