Have you ever read a Cozy Mystery culinary themed book and thought you absolutely HAD to try a recipe? Have you ever listened to a Cozy Mystery culinary themed book and thought that a recipe being described sounded wonderful, but alas, since you didn’t own a hard copy of the book, you couldn’t try the recipe?
Well, seven Cozy Mystery authors have gotten together and decided to do something about those types of “problems”. The book is called The Cozy Chicks Kitchen, and the seven authors are:
Ellery Adams/J. B. Stanley (Charmed Pie Shoppe Mystery Series & Supper Club Mystery Series),
Deb Baker/Hannah Reed (Yooper Mystery Series & Beekeeping Mystery Series),
Lorraine Bartlett (Victoria Square Mystery Series),
Kate Collins (Flower Shop Mystery Series),
Maggie Sefton (Knitting Mystery Series),
Leann Sweeney (Cats in Trouble Mystery Series), and
Heather Webber (Lucy Valentine Mystery Series).
In the book’s description, it says they cover all types of food categories: appetizers, entrées, vegetable sides, soups and salads, desserts, and even drinks.
Several people have written to tell me about the book, so that I could tell you all. It sounds like a really cute premise for a cookbook, and I’m hoping that authors who typically include several recipes at the end of their Cozy Mystery books (like Diane Mott Davidson) take up this great idea and put out cookbooks of their own. (Actually, with my cooking skills, I doubt I could replicate any of Goldy Bear’s recipes!)
