I loved this cookbook and immediately tried three recipes contributed by author Kate Collins: Baked Crispy Potatoes, Easy Crispy Potatoes and Incredible Chicken. I tried an additional one by Lorraine Bartlett which was called Peanut Butter Oatmeal Bars and I have to say all four of these recipes where delicious. The next three recipes I’d like to try would be the Easy Toffee Bars by Maggie Sefton, Ellery’s Banana Pudding Pie by Ellery Adams and the Onion Breadsticks by Lorraine Bartlett. Just typing the names of these recipes is making my mouth water. There are so many recipes to choose from under categories like: appetizers, soups, salads & veggies and main dish options. Others also included are: pies, cakes & other sweets, cookies and other treats in which I’m sure you’ll find a recipe or two that you just can’t wait to try. I highly recommend this cookbook and I’m definitely adding this book to my ever-growing library. Well done!
In this book we find recipes from eight authors that offer a variety of delicious meals and snacks for you and your family to try. With all the choices they offer, it’s so hard to pick which ones to try first, but when you do, you’ll be glad you did. Also, in the back of the book you’ll find the list of contributing authors, along with the book titles each has available for purchase and their personal websites where you can find out more about them. I’m so glad I stumbled across this cookbook because I’ve added a few new recipes to my everyday cookbook that I use.
The Cozy Chicks are seven mystery authors - Ellery Adams, Deb Baker (aka Hannah Reed), Lorraine/L.L. Bartlett, Kate Collins, Maggie Sefton, Leann Sweeney, and Heather Webber/Blake
Welcome to the Cozy Chicks kitchen! Pull up a stool and let us pour you a cup of coffee. We’ll have a chat as a pot of tomato basil soup bubbles on the stove. While the soup is simmering, feel free to sit back, relax, and listen to the sizzle of lemon chicken cutlets crisping to a golden brown in the frying pan. By the time we catch up on work and family and start discussing the last book we’ve read, the buttery, cinnamon scents of the apple ginger pie baking in the oven will curl around our shoulders like a warm shawl and coax a sigh of contentment from our lips.
Friends, food, and fellowship. That is what home feels like. And the kitchen is the heart of the home. This sense of warmth and companionship is what The Cozy Chicks try to invoke in our novels. And now, our cookbook will invite you to enter the heart of our cozy mystery worlds—the stories of our characters and of their authors, told through food. For a short while, our protagonists have taken a break from crime solving to don aprons and wield spatulas and wooden spoons. And they’d like nothing more than to spend some time with you. Enjoy!
