Tuesday Treats: Three-Ingredient Cloud Bread

Sometimes, store-bought just doesn’t cut it and you want something that looks fancy when you make up a board. “What’s a board?” you ask. That’s when you make up a snazzy spread of fruit, cheese, meat, crackers, breads, and other goodies and you “present” it on a large serving plate or an actual board–like a cutting board. Anyway, it looks good. These bread rounds take your presentation to the next level.

Total Time: 35 Min.
Prep Time: 15 Min.

Zeta Cordero, the heroine of UNDER THE ASSASSIN’S MOON is the first to admit that her Wolf mate, Brody Buchanan, is the better cook–especially when they are cruising around the Caribbean on his boat. However, her mother used to make cloud bread and when she found this recipe, she tried it. While not quite what she remembers from childhood, it’s still tasty and easy and what’s better when drifting around the turquoise blue of the Islands than a quick plate of munchables–fruit, cheese, bread, and meat for her carnivorous mate. Zeta and Brody’s story is an interesting one. He’s MIA from Delta Force and she’s a top CIA assassin sent to take him down. Curious? Just click on the cover or the title. This book is a stand-alone, part of my Moonstruck Wolf series and Susan Stoker’s Special Forces: Operation Alpha world. You can read for free on Kindle Unlimited or buy it for the bargain price of $2.99 for your digital keeper shelf. And don’t forget the cloud bread! Zeta wants to know if your snack plates look as fancy as hers. She knows the ones I make are just dumped out on a paper plate and she’s hoping my friends are more stylish. 😉

  1. Gah, meringue! I have never been able to successfully make a meringue. I lack the patience, I think. I’ll leave these for cooks with the knack for it and for those who actually have people come over to visit. Yeah, my snacker trays aren’t anything to look at. Hubs and I don’t care. Like most of the stuff I make, hearty and yummy food that’s good to eat but not pretty. Meat and cheese and stuffs on a plate to set on the table between us while we’re watching TV.

    I do LOVE Under the Assassin’s Moon, though. So much awesome.

      I’m with you, except I can do meringue. We don’t do fancy any more. Used to. Long ago, far away, different life style. Don’t really miss it and I get tickled when I’m reading a book and one of the characters sets out “boards.” Given the way Zeta’s brain works, I knew she’d be all over this. 😉 And thanks for enjoying the book. It was a fun one to write!
