Mystery Writers of America and Quirk Books recently published a gorgeous hardcover cookbook, edited by Kate M. White. It includes scrumptious recipes from luminary Sisters in Crime like Katherine Hall Page, Louise Penny, Sue Grafton, and Sara Paretsky; authors like Lee Child, Joe Finder, and Harlan Coben; and best-selling writer pals of ours like Hallie Ephron, Hank Phillippi Ryan, Wicked Cozy Accomplice Sheila Connolly, and Leslie Budewitz. Barb and I each have a recipe in the book, too!
I made Charlaine Harris’s Very Unsophisticated Supper Dip last Saturday and it was delicious. I modified Charlaine’s recipe, adding fresh red and green peppers, and we ate it with warmed fresh corn tortillas instead of tortilla chips. It was a fabulous cozy dinner in front of a movie. So far I’ve also made Barb Ross’s recipe, invented by her husband Bill Carito, a fabulous Lobster-Pesto Risotto that was perfect for our Easter brunch (somehow I failed to get a closeup of the dish, but it was a big hit with our guests).
I’m running a contest to give away a copy of the cookbook. All you have to do is leave a comment over on the contest link on my web site (http://edithmaxwell.com/mwa-cookbook-contest/) before sundown tonight, Friday April 24! Or heck, a comment here will enter you, too!
Readers: Hungry yet? What author do you hope you’ll find in the cookbook? Have you tried any of the recipes yet?
