I think by now just about everyone has heard of the Wall Street Journal that blasted today's YA as being too dark and violent

You can find tons of heart-felt response to this on Twitter by searching for #YAsaves and there's a wonderful Salon piece in response

And two more bloggers weighed in with interesting posts: The Intern and Allison Brennan at Murderati

On finding validation as an author -- "So when do authors feel like they've made it? I guess, like most things in life, it's different for everyone. I guess I haven't figured it out for me yet. But I think I'm getting closer."

Agent Rachelle Gardner on writing the Break In novel

How can you not love a blog post that's called Warning Signs of an Idiot Plot

While I don't have any recipe links to share today, I do have two ARCs to give away: Sweetly by Jackson Pearce and Spoiled by Heather Cocks and Jessica Morgan

For your chance to win, share your fave recipe link with me (also, you need to have a US addy and leave a way for me to contact you if you win, PLEASE!!)

I'll take your fave recipe links to this Friday, June 10th at midnight and then I'll pick the two links I like best and the people who shared them will each get an ARC.

Hi Elizabeth!

How are you?

Thank you so much for the giveaway.

Here is one of my all time favorite recipes ever!

It's easy to make, and doesn't require lots of ingredients.

Okay, first let me say that I am definitely checking out Damaris's recipe for that pumpkin cheesecake. I'm a vegetarian and I got a great no-meat loaf recipe from the folks at the cancer project.

my mom's recipes are always my favorite, and this one doesn't need a link!! we make it every year at Christmas, and it's such a hit that we tend to make three batches: One for us to eat until the xmas eve party, one for the guests at the party, and one for plates we give to friends and neighbors.

Rocky Road Fudge
1 cup peanut butter
1 bag chocolate chips
1 bag butterscotch chips
1 bag marshmallows
(nuts if you like them)

mix the peanut butter and the chips in the microwave until it's creamy. put the marshmallows at the bottom of a pan (with wax paper in it!) and pour the chocolate melty stuff over it, and sprinkle nuts on after you like. chill, cut it up, and eat with eggnog.

stuff is amazing it.

This is making me hungry. Here's the recipe for Chilli dip. I make this all the time for parties, only I put mine in the oven, not the microwave. Quick, easy, and always good!

When I have guests over, they love for me to make pimiento cheese and bring out the crackers. It's also good on sandwiches. http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/southern-pimento-cheese/Detail.aspx

I love baking!! Here is one of the recipes I use:

Funfetti Cupcakes
1/2 cup milk
3 large egg whites
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 tsp almond extract
1 1/4 cups all purpose flour
1 cup sugar
1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp baking powder
6 tbsp butter, soft
2 tbsp rainbow sprinkles

Preheat oven to 350F.
Line a 12-cup muffin tin with paper liners.
In a measuring cup, whisk together milk, egg whites and extracts. Set aside
In the bowl of an electric mixer (or a large bowl if you prefer to work by hand), combine flour, sugar, salt and baking powder. Stir to combine. Cut in butter with the paddle attachment at low speed (or cut in by hand), until mixture is coarse and sandy. Add milk mixture and beat at medium speed for 1 1/2 minutes. Scrape sides of bowl and continue beating for 20-30 seconds. Stir in sprinkles.
Divide batter evenly into prepared tin. Bake for for 15 minutes, or until a tester comes out clean.
Remove from pan and cool completely on a wire cooling rack before frosting.
Makes 12.

Thank you, Elizabeth!

This is one of my favorite recipes because it a classic, homey kind of dessert. It just warms you to the bone. YUM. ( I use apples instead of pears, though.)
