Culinary Mysteries

I've been having a blast reading a series of books I checked out from my local library, so I thought I'd share with you.

The author's name is Diane Mott Davidson and she writes culinary mysteries. They're centered around a caterer as the main character. She finds herself in all kinds of situations, sometimes deadly, which results in a mystery.

It's kind of like a grown up Nancy Drew with some Food Network thrown in! The cool thing is, when she is cooking in the book, the next page will list the recipe. So, if she is stressed and baking a big batch of cinnamon rolls, you turn the page and the recipe for the rolls is right there!

The titles are all kinds of puns too, like The Cereal Murders and Dying for Chocolate.

If you're a reader, or you like mysteries check them out! They're cute!

I went through a phase of reading those awhile ago. The recipes are good, too!

I'm always looking for good books to read that somehow have to do with cooking. These ones sound good!! Right now I am reading How to Bake a Perfect Life. Really good so far! :-)
