Nancy Jarvis (screalwriter) | 154 comments You don't have to buy the book, but look up "Cozy Food" on Amazon and flip it to the back cover. 128 cozy mystery writers contributed to the book and their names are listed on the back. Recipes are related (and often come from their books) to their writing. You'll have a list to keep you reading for some time.

Tina (tinacz) | 236 comments I liked the Diane Mott Davidson Davidson culinary series probably the best. Then again it was my first of the foodie mysteries so there may be more that surpassed Goldie Bear (protag in this series).

Also, Cleo Coyle which is food related but more of the coffee variety.


Anyway, they are worth looking at. Enjoy. ;-)

As one of the authors with a recipe in "Cozy Food" I can guarantee you'll find scads of recipes to love. Mine is the Summer Squash Refrigerator Pickles, easy, tasty, and perfect for making right now with all the fresh, summer veggies available.

Sheryl Booth of Booth Talks Books | 3 comments I just made a batch of chocolate peppermint patties inspired by Mary Kennedy's book from the Oldies but Goodies shop! She posted the recipe in her newsletter. Yum!!!


Erin *Proud Book Hoarder* (erinpaperbackstash) I copied some of the recipes from books onto recipe cards to keep in a recipe box. I have never tried them yet but I'm curious.

Joy (audioaddict1234) I've tried a few of the recipes from Joanne Fluke's Cookie Jar mysteries but mist are just ok and none have taken the place of my favorites.

Helen Page (bulkarn) | 3 comments Hi, I can recommend AJ Carton's books set in Sonoma for fabulous Italian recipes and exquisite food writing set in with her entertaining mysteries. Here's the first one, A Saucy Murder: http://a.co/3Xsc1Yi. They get better and better with each book. I believe her grandmother had a restaurant that catered to the San Francisco Opera and the recipes are hers. So very authentic.

I can't wait till I move into my new house next year where I will have room to cook. My kitchen here is so small I just do the basics. I've saved recipes that I want to try out. My husband sends some too.
