Great meals don’t have to be a mystery—but they can come from a mystery. Selecting the most delicious recipes from some of the most popular names in crime solving, The Cozy Cookbook serves up mouth-watering appetizers, entrées, and desserts that will leave your family or book club group asking, “Whodunit?”
In addition to recipes, choose a sleuth du jour from our menu of mystery series and get a taste of each of our authors’ bread and butter—page-turning puzzles and stay-up-all-night suspense in excerpts from their bestselling works.
Whether you like your meals sautéed, roasted, baked, or served cold like revenge, The Cozy Cookbook has something to satisfy every mystery fan.
I love cookbooks. I do not really cook much and rarely follow a recipe. I do not bake much and again rarely follow a recipe. I do not know why, but I just love cookbooks. I always consider a recipe a guide or ideal starting place. Now one thing I love about cookbooks is the photos. So how could I possibly love The Cozy Cookbook? I can only figure it must be because these recipes are wonderful and I got a sneak peek at some wonderful cozy mysteries. I also found a couple of authors I did not know about and a few series I have put on my must read list.
In this great cookbook the reader gets all sorts of recipes. And to wrap it all up there is a series list with the featured authors and the titles of their books. You get everything you could ever want in a cookbook if you enjoy cozies with a tip towards food. It starts with a note from the editor and dives into a wonderful list of categories. From breakfast, baked goods, appetizers, main courses, side dishes, desserts and even drinks, you have your whole meal in this book. The author bios is a great extra as well.
For all those foodie cozy lovers out there, grab this book. It is brimming with wonderful recipes or as I call them starting points. You will enjoy the entertaining excerpts from several different series. I was lucky enough to find a few new authors and get to visit with some of my favorites. This is a wonderful cookbook that wraps up tons of those recipes in our favorite cozies all in one book. No more running copies of the recipes in your books, no more tearing the pages out and stacking them up somewhere only to lose them later. This is an all in one. Find your next meal, find your next author, find your next cozy series. And if that was not enough reason to love this book, the cover is so adorable too, lol.
