KINKY SEX, BANANA CREAM PIE, and A FREE EBOOK

(Today is the first day in my three day giveaway of my novella, Back to Bite You. This is the last time I’ll be able to give it away, so please hop on over to Amazon.com (or Amazon.co.uk or whichever Amazon you use) and get your copy. But don’t forget to come back to talk about kink and get a recipe for banana cream pie.)

Banana cream pie 1

Why pie? Let me explain. In the kinky little town of Bayou Gavotte, Louisiana, almost anything goes. It’s known for its fetish clubs, many of which are the sort you or I would expect – BDSM clubs, vampire clubs, sex clubs, and so on.

And then there’s the Pie Club, which I mentioned in a blog here last month. It’s a food fight club – a place where you get to play with food. Throw it, wallow in it, get as messy as you like with no consequences (such as cleaning the walls and floor or doing laundry), and if you like to mix food with sex, lick it off your lover in public or private. They have a great choice of foods to play with, such as chocolate syrup, strawberry pudding, baked beans (not my favorite, and Gerry, the hero of Back to Bite You, agrees with me), and best of all, banana cream pie.

So, since you probably don’t have a food fight club in your neighborhood, I thought I’d give you a recipe for Banana Cream Pie that you can play with home. (You may want to hire someone to clean up after you.) This is the recipe used by Mirabel, a vampire and Mardi Gras history buff who is the heroine of the story, and it’s fabulous.

Ingredients:

A 9 inch pie shell. A pie shell from the supermarket will do, but if I were making this pie (which I’m not, because I’m on an almost-no-carbs diet), I would make it from scratch. Mirabel does everything from scratch, and she makes the best pies ever.

2/3 cup sugar

1/4 cup corn starch

1/2 teaspoon salt

3 cups milk (whole or 2%)

4 slightly beaten egg yolks

2 tablespoons softened butter

4 teaspoons vanilla

2 large bananas (or more)

Sweetened whipped cream

Directions:

Bake the pie shell according to the directions for an unfilled shell.

Mix the sugar, corn starch and salt in a saucepan. Mix the milk and egg yolks together, then stir them gradually into the sugar mixture. Cook over medium heat, STIRRING CONSTANTLY, until it thickens and boils. Stir while boiling for a minute, then remove from the heat. Stir in the butter and vanilla.

Cover with plastic wrap and cool to room temperature. Cover the bottom of the pie crust with sliced banana (about ½ inch thick). Pour the cooled filling on top and chill for a couple of hours.

Top with sweetened whipped cream just before serving. YUM, whether eaten the ordinary way or slathered all over the one you love.

Anyway, since kink seems to be the thing nowadays, what do you think? Does kink liven up a story or just make it weird? Is spanking erotic? (I can see how it might be.) How about pony riding play? (Um, not for me, but some people love it.)

Here’s a blurb for Back to Bite You, and if you’re playing our trivia game, there’s a question at the end of this post.

Back to Bite You proof 2

IS THIS LOVE – OR MURDER?

When vampire Mirabel Lane goes to Bayou Gavotte to hide out from the mobster she just dumped, the last thing she expects is to inherit a house. No, make that the second to last thing. What she really doesn’t expect is to fall for the previous owner’s gorgeous grandson.

A HUNK WITH A MISSION.

When Gerry Kingsley goes to Bayou Gavotte to check out probable gold-digger and possible murderer Mirabel Lane, the last thing he expects is to fall in love with the irresistible twenty-something vampire.

 

A SINISTER HISTORY UNCOVERED.

No, what he really doesn’t expect is to unearth―once and for all―his family’s dark, convoluted past.

And now for the trivia question: What area of history interests Mirabel, the heroine of Back to Bite You? Fill in your answer here.

  1. I’ll never be able to think about pie in the same way again. LOL!

    • Barbara Monajem

      It’s only the cream pies you have to worry about. Anything with pastry on the top just wouldn’t work, IMHO. Not that I’ve tried!!

  2. thanks for the freebie–I just don’t think my grandmother thought of that use for banana cream pie all those times she served it (in The South, of course)

    • Barbara Monajem

      She probably didn’t think of that use for baked beans, either. (But apparently there are some people who do.)

  3. I don’t like bananas, Barbara, but the rest of the pie looks good, LOL, love your idea of a Pie Club!

    • Barbara Monajem

      I’m sure coconut cream pie would do. Or chocolate cream pie. Or….

    Ooh, chocolate cream pie… I downloaded your novella, and if I ever finish this book I’m working on, I’ll have time to read it. Looking forward to it!

  6. I LOVE the idea of a food fight club! Wonder if I could start one in my town… 🙂

  7. Hmm, I think I’d prefer lemon. Tweeted.

    • Barbara Monajem

      Lemon meringue pie would be perfect! 🙂 Thanks for tweeting.
