Special Guest Author Christy Gissendaner Gives a Taste of In Too Deep

I’m pleased to host a a guest today, Christy Gissendaner, author of many published works, including her latest contemporary paranormal romance novel, In Too Deep, published by Etopia Press.


Christy GissendanerUsually when I write, I lend a bit of myself to my characters. Other times, I branch out and give them their own personal traits. For my latest paranormal romance, the heroine has a love of seafood. Me? I refuse to anything that lives in the ocean. Or lake. Or river. Let’s just say anything that lives in water. But Emma, the female lead in In Too Deep, has acquired a deep and abiding love for lobster.

In honor of Emma’s favorite food, I’m sharing a lobster recipe I might actually be convinced to try. Mushrooms are a fave of mine and I’ve made something similar except I substituted bacon bits for the lobster and crab. Either way I’m sure it’s delicious!

Lobster and Crab Stuffed Mushrooms


3/4 cup melted butter (divide into
¼ and ½ cup)

1 pound fresh mushrooms caps

1 cup crushed croutons

1 cup shredded cheese (suggest

1 (6 ounce) can drained crabmeat

1 pound lobster tail, cleaned and

2 tablespoons garlic powder



Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Grease a large baking sheet with 1/4 cup of melted
butter. Make a single layer of mushrooms on baking sheet.


Mix together the crushed croutons, remaining 1/2 cup butter, shredded cheese,
crabmeat, lobster and garlic powder. Spoon the mixture into the mushroom caps.


Bake for 10 to 12 minutes in the preheated oven, or until lightly browned on the
top. Sprinkle with additional cheese if desired or drizzle with melted butter
and garlic powder. Enjoy!
