Shannon's Latest Book Release - Rodeo Song


But when silken-voiced Garrett Steele set out for stardom, he left Jenna—and his cowboy past—far behind. A chance encounter at one of his concerts propels him back into Jenna's life. But, once burned by love, Jenna must guard her heart against the captivating singer. 

Once upon a time, Garrett vowed he'd be a success, no matter what. But that path shattered his soul. His reunion with Jenna makes him long for things he once took for granted. Now he must show her that he's found what he was looking for all along…right here in his hometown.

Shannon's Recipe for Taco Soup

2 pounds Hamburger (cooked and drained)
1 can Stewed Tomatoes
1 can Rotel (I use Original)
2 cans Ranch Style Beans
2 cans Hominy (white and yellow) drained
1 envelope Ranch Dressing Mix
1 envelope Taco Seasoning Mix
2 cans water (More if you like it soupier)

Cook Hamburger. Add all ingredients in dutch oven and bring to boil, then simmer for 20 minutes. (You can use corn instead of hominy or one can corn and one can hominy.) Serve with shredded cheese and Fritos.
