Diane ~Firefly~ | 19 comments Not sure on the legalities, but can we post recipes we've tried from fiction books? I've made a couple from JoAnne Fluke's mysteries and have been curious if anyone recommends recipes from different stories. I won't post a recipe until I get an ok from a moderator though. :)

Merry (m75248) hum...that would be interesting to know....guess you could always add a dash of salt and call it your own!


Diane ~Firefly~ | 19 comments True, but I guess we could just mention the recipe name, book title and what we did or didn't like about it. That should work I would think.

Merry (m75248) Hopefully our moderators will have more information... :)

I don't see why not, as long as you give credit to where you got it from, which I have done when I posted one or two recipes I did not create. I too have made a lot of Jo Flukes recipe,and have had great sucess.

I write my recipes and ones I want to try from books on a legal pad. That way, I can make notes, like when I made it, how it went,and what, if anything I want/ned to change.

Merry (m75248) Good idea Kim, I am not great at cooking, so many times I create the recipe and it does not work for me, I have to always tweek, so a rewrite is the best way to go....

I just wrote 3 new cookie recipes yesterday, and now I will have to, real hardship here, test them. I know my boyfriend, and the library will be thrilled to taste them for me.

I will post them when I test them.

Very Funny Kim! Can you imagine living there - they say French Women are not fat, well I would be - the wine, the cheese, the pastries..oh la la!~ Tres bien!

Diane ~Firefly~ | 19 comments Ok, so I love the Chocolate Chip Crunch Cookie recipe from Joanna Carl's Chocolate Chip Cookie Murder book. In fact, it is the only way I make chocolate chip cookies anymore. The crunch is provided by crushed corn flakes. Yummy!

You can check out this site http://www.murdershebaked.com/recipe_... to see what recipes she has in each book.

Merry (m75248) DIANE, Corn flakes, they must make the cookies sweeter and do something to the consistency? Are they soft with a crunch interior or just crunchy crisp cookies?


message 13: by Diane ~Firefly~ (new)

Diane ~Firefly~ | 19 comments Merry - that was a hard question, and now I might have to bake a batch tonight to figure it out. My answer as of now, is they are soft, crunchy cookies as opposed to hard, crunchy cookies. I hope that helps. :)


message 14: by Merry (new)

Merry (m75248) Yes that says a lot - that is a nice combo, a soft cookie with a little crunch inside....sounds yum oh!


message 15: by Diane ~Firefly~ (new)

Diane ~Firefly~ | 19 comments Well, I had to make a batch to test and it is more of a crunchy outside and chewy inside.

I have to agree with thw idea that corn flakes make them crunchy since they are an unseetened cereal. It's like using corn flake crumbs to coat fried chicken.
