As an addition to the other Cat Who... books, this is cute. Many of the recipes are somewhat standard, but there are a lot of quotations from the various books and there is the novelty of cooking something from a novel you've read. I got the book mainly for the kabibbles, which are actually really good, but haven't made much else from it yet (again, partially because many of the recipes don't really stand out much to me, but they don't look bad).

A fun accompaniment to the Cat Who books! The recipes are tied into food that has been mentioned in the series. I found the recipes easy to follow, and we have enjoyed all of the ones tried so far.

So excited when I got this book! all the recipes that we have read about in the series. Gave it a 4 star at this time because I have yet to actually make any of the recipes. Once I do so, I will update this review. Also wish there were pics of what the food should look like, but if the descriptions in the book match my imagination and the outcome then I will be very happy indeed.

This is a fun book to have if you have read the Cat Who...series of books. You can make these recipes and imagine you are in Moose County or Pickax with Jim Quilleran himself.

It is sectioned by book in which each recipe appeared. It also gives menu combination suggestions.

I don't like a lot of recipes in this book. Some because I just don't like the specific ingredients (no fault of the author), some because I don't like the particular version of the recipe (definately the fault of the author.)

Still reading it and loving it! While reading the Cat who Mysteries I wanted to eat the food that was described. I have tried several recipes so far and have only been disappointed with one. (and that was my cooking) I want to try a new recipe each week. the book includes comfort food, ethnic food and new taste experiences. Cant wait to try a different recipe.

You never know what you are going to get with a cookbook based on novels but this one gets it right. It is arranged by book title with one complete meal and several A La Carte dishes from each book. All accompanied by quotes from the book where they are mentioned. It includes Iris Cobb's Meat loaf, Macaroni and Cheese, and Coconut Cake. [return][return]The last chapter is called Feline Fare and is the weakest part. There are no recipes in this part just lists of things that the cats were fed.

Each of the "cat who" books talks about food a lot. This cookbook share recipes for the foods mentioned throughout the books. The cool thing is that the cookbook was put together by fans of the series. The recipes seem to range from the everyday to gourmet, but none seem to be overly complicated. I think I might add this one to my collection.

This cookbook has the recipes for Qwill's meals as they appear in the series. Many are very high in calories (Ida Cobb's Macaroni and Cheese has three cups of cheddar as well as sour cream!) but the baked pork chops was very good. Fun to read, as there are snippets from the books throughout.

The Cat Who Series by Lillian Jackson Braun are a great series. The protagonist "Quill" and his two Siamese cats Koko and Yum Yum are easy to befriend. This book is great because it contains recipes and little tidbits that are written about in the series. The recipes are fantastic!

I loved the mysteries and was intrigued by the recipes. I haven't made anything yet...not really sure what I'm waiting for. I know my own kitty would love it if I would cook some gourmet treats for her!

tons of yummy looking recipes....totally surprised to find out what Mrs. Cobb's "secret" ingredients for her famous mac and cheese and meatloaf REALLY were! this book makes me wish i was a cook.

What's not to love about recipes from the author or character you love. And to top it off, it's from a cozy serial mystery. Cute idea. Must buy/read for a fan. Fun times.

If you like The Cat Who series and want to try some of the recipes this is the book for you. I have not tired any yet, but I am looking forward to doing so.

Many of the recipes were much to fancy for our taste, but it was a fun read. I liked the way there were recipes for each The Cat Who

I'm not sure I'll ever make any of the recipes, but it was fun reading through it and remembering when Qwill ate those things.
