    The Fun Of Staying In Touch…by  After-life expert, business attorney, and author, Roberta Grimes, will turn everything you’ve ever learned about what happens when you die, on its head! Provocative, entertaining and informative, are words that only scratch the surface of this mind-opening interview and book! How the dead communicate with us; how we can connect with them, and the proof of a life, better than this one, are only a few of the intriguing topics discussed. Sit back and relax, but, be ready for the ride of your life, as she challenges and disproves many of the beliefs you were raised with, and perhaps have held as sacred.

    Recipe of the week- Chicken Parmesan

     Chicken Parmesan Recipe/Directions
    Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Season chicken on both sides with salt and pepper. Dredge each breast in the flour and tap off excess, then dip in the egg and let excess drip off, then dredge on both sides in the bread crumbs.

    Divide the oil between 2 large saute pans and heat over high heat until almost smoking. Add 2 chicken breasts to each pan and cook until golden brown on both sides, about 2 minutes per side. Transfer to a baking sheet and top each breast with some tomato sauce, a few slices of the mozzarella, salt and pepper, and a tablespoon of Parmesan. Bake in the oven until the chicken is cooked through and the cheese is melted, about 5 to 7 minutes. Remove from the oven and garnish with basil or parsley leaves.

    Tomato Sauce:
    Heat olive oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add onions and garlic and cook until soft. Add pureed tomatoes with their juices, crushed tomatoes, tomato paste, 1 cup water, bay leaf, parsley, Cubano pepper, and bring to a boil. Season, to taste, with salt and pepper. Reduce heat and cook until slightly thickened, about 30 minutes.
    Ingredients:

    4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, pounded thin
    Salt and freshly ground black pepper
    2 cups all-purpose flour, seasoned with salt and pepper
    4 large eggs, beaten with 2 tablespoons water and seasoned with salt and pepper
    2 cups panko bread crumbs
    1 cup vegetable oil or pure olive oil
    Tomato Sauce, recipe follows
    1 pound fresh mozzarella, thinly sliced
    1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan
    Fresh basil or parsley leaves, for garnish
    Tomato Sauce:
    2 tablespoons olive oil
    1 large Spanish onion, finely chopped
    4 cloves garlic, smashed with some kosher salt to make a paste
    2 (28-ounce) cans plum tomatoes and their juices, pureed in a blender
    1 (16-ounce) can crushed tomatoes
    1 small can tomato paste
    1 bay leaf
    1 small bunch Italian parsley
    1 Cubano chile pepper, chopped

    Close Your Eyes, Hold Hands, by 10x New York Times Best-Selling author, Chris Bohjalian, is a compelling story of loss, resilience, tragedy, and transformation, that will keep you on the edge of your seat, until you’ve finished the final chapter. Read how the main character, Emily Shepard, has her life turned upside down, as a result of an all too real life possibility, of a Nuclear plant explosion and meltdown. You’ll love how the author weaves the tale of Emily’s shame and self destruction, as the result of the actions of her dysfunctional dad, who was blamed for the nuclear accident. Gripping, insightful, and thought-provoking are just a few adjectives to describe this incredible novel!
