Victoria Hamilton is the bestselling author of several mystery series including the national bestselling Vintage Kitchen Mysteries and Merry Muffin Mysteries. She does, indeed, collect vintage kitchenware and bake muffins. She drinks tea and coffee on writing days, and wine other times. It doesn’t do to confuse days.

It's funny how it works, but ideas definitely float in the ether, for me, and then attach themselves to a particular book idea, and it goes on from there! Of course, that's when the real work starts!(less)

Old-Fashioned Too-Many-Beans-To-Count Bean Salad

By: Victoria Hamilton

 

When it’s too hot to cook, I usually pull out the oldest of vintage staples… the bean salad! It is pretty, and tasty (I now think, tho’ my seven year old self would not agree) and great to take to a pot luck. It stores well, and keeps for quite a Read more of this blog post »
