I thought I’d start the new year off on a fun note and guess what? I’m a foodie — love to cook, love to eat, love to feed people. Exercising it off — not so much. LOL
So, when I came across this collection of recipes from the kitchens of mystery authors, I thought, what a blast!!!
This book was the brain child of mystery writer Susan Whitfield who contributed recipes from her kitchen and contacted other who dun it writers to do the same. Proceeds of the book go to The American Cancer Society.
Many of the recipes have killer names such as: Elaine Alphin’s Guilty Greek Shrimp, Raven Bower’s Vampire-Free Pasta, Janet Durbin’s Suspect Peanut Butter Cookies (yum, I love peanut butter cookies), and Stacy Juba’s Terrormisu. The recipe name that totally cracked me up was Mary Deal’s Stuffed-in-the-Trunk Mushrooms. Don’t be afraid to try these recipes. The authors just write about death by poison, they don’t practice it in their own kitchens and recipes.
Both male and female mystery writers contributed recipes, so when you buy the book, you’ll be able to find out what the men are cooking up. Here’s some of what the guys dish out: Keith Donnelly’s Walloped Black Jack Pie, Tim Marquitz’s Demon-Fire Burritos (ouch), James Mascia’s Assassin’s Apple Cabbage Soup,
Mike Nettleton’s Sinister Scones, and Mark Rosendorf’s On The Lamb Chops.
I first heard about this collection from my sister author at Desert Breeze Publishing, Melinda Elmore, who made an announcement on the DB author board. That got me really excited, because as stated above, I’m a foodie. Melinda contributed recipes for Deviled Eggs and something delish she calls Radical Meatloaf.
