I thought the book was to contain all the recipes from the series, including new ones. Many of my favourite recipes were missing. The variety, and amount of recipes, from the 'Christmas Cookie Murder' book had more to it, than this book. I wish I would have looked through the book, befor buying. I would not have bought the book. I wouldn't even give it away to a friend, since I don't like short changing my friends. I'm extremely disappointed!

I would have preferred more recipes and less story. The author's website said that the upcoming book would include ALL the recipes listed there - along with some new ones. It's nice to have the new ones, but I was hoping for the rest of those that were previously published. Having them all in one book would be handy. If I had seen this book in the store instead of ordering online, I might not have made the purchase. Also, Ms. Fluke should stop talking down to us in her instructions. I would think that most of us enjoy this series because of the recipes (let's face it, there are better mysteries out there) and we don't need such simplified directions. By the way, for an author who takes pride in her character's language skills, she should know that Monterey jack only has one "R" in it.

I was disappointed that this did not have all the recipes mentioned in her previous books but that would have been handy but I'm glad to get more! I was originally scared off buying this book from the previous reviews but went ahead and bought it becuase I didn't want to miss any interactions between Norman, Mike and Hannah. If you're worried like I was - don't be. There's only about 6 pages of "story" line in the whole book. I'm still pleased that this book continues with her simple recipe explanations and tasty recipes. Good buy if you want to cook cool and interesting foods.

JOANNE FLUKE’S LAKE EDEN COOKBOOK by Joanne Fluke Love Joanne Fluke books and just thought this would be a recipe book but I was wrong. There is a story in there about the cookie swap they have. It's easy to keep track of everybody over the years and I love these series. Book also includes a hard copy of a recipe along with all the recipes from the Cookie Jar which Hannah runs in Lake Eden. Love how the recipes give you not only tips on how to make them but other most useful tips on brands, measurements and how to serve-hot or cold and anything else she feels might be needed. I can't wait to try some of the ones in this book. Love hand drawn pictures of different vegetables, dishes, etc. I wish this book was spiral bound so the print would be bigger and it'd fit on my recipe holder better. Can't wait to make the Angel Kiss Cookies. Love the tip about the size of baking pans! Loved hearing all the stories they shared while feasting at the cookie swap. The stories brought a smile to my face! Love end result of the charity. I received this book from The Kennsington Books in exchange for my honest review

Fans of the Hannah Swensen culinary whodunits will enjoy the sweet tooth recipes from nine of the fourteen tales and more (some new ones not in the novels). Hannah, her partner Lisa Beeseman and Grandma Knudsen offer baking tips like the size of eggs in a recipe and the definition of butter. If you live in Lake Eden, Minnesota waking up in winter means room temperature is a bit cooler than the average and baking heats the kitchen. Hannah and Lisa cater Swenson's mom Delores' cookie exchange with Razzle Dazzle Baked Brie and Peanut Butter and Jelly Pie. There is much more like Herb's Wedding Cookie Cake and Boggles (the mind) with many more recipes. With commentary and pearls of wisdom (hide candy to be used in a recipe inside the vegetable crisper as kids never go there) throughout enhancing the fun, readers who bake will enjoy the best of The Cookie Jar.

I too, was mistakenly under the impression that this would be an inclusive cookbook. Did not have as many recipes as some of the mysteries. Definitely, money poorly spent!

I was somewhat disappointed when I went through the book to not find my favorite recipe that was in The Devil's Food Cake Murder. I was hoping that I could share all my books to my elderly mother and just have the one book with all the recipes. However this is not the case. :(

Being a fan of the Hannah Swensen Mysteries, and having a love of cookbooks, the JOANNE FLUKE’S LAKE EDEN COOKBOOK was a must have for me. Every time I read a Hannah Swensen book, I practically drool over the recipes. Having them all in one book is a dream come true. (The amount of cookie recipes alone . . . amazing!) Plus there are new recipes that at the time this book was published had never been in any of the mysteries. If you’re looking for a cookbook with big, beautiful, glossy photos, you won’t find them with this book. What you will find is a delightful book with the feel of a personal recipe book. Think along the lines of the old timey church cookbooks. Even the pages themselves (paper) reminds me of those treasured books. You do not have to be a fan of the Hannah Swensen mysteries to love, and enjoy this cookbook. That being said, along with the recipes, and helpful tips, Joanne Fluke has written within the book, a short Hannah Swenson story (murder and mystery free), that is a good way to learn a little bit about the characters. It takes place during a cookie exchange with the ladies of Lake Eden. Everyone wants Hannah’s wonderful recipes, so she gives each lady a book of their own. They exchange fun stories based around the recipes, and each story leads to the next chapter of this wonderful cookbook. Between the covers of this book, you’ll find chapters such as . . . Bar Cookies, Breads & Muffins, Cakes & Cupcakes, Candy, Quick and/or Easy Meals, just to name a few, filled with recipes like . . . Chocolate Overload Cookie Bars, Mango Bread, Rhubarb Custard Cake, Jamaican Rum Balls, Cashew Crisps, Desperation Cookies, Neverfail Fudge Frosting, Apricot Bread Pudding, Salmon Cakes with Dill Sauce, Shrimp Bisque, and so many, many more. You’ll even learn how to make your own Brown Sugar, and Powdered Sugar! Joanne Fluke’s Lake Eden Cookbook: Hannah Swensen’s Recipes from The Cookie Jar is a wonderful addition to any cookbook collection, and a must have for culinary cozy mystery fans!

Used several of the cookie recipes for a church function, resulting in numerous requests for the recipes (including from my Mom!) Several tips included in most of the recipes (possible substitutions to change up the recipes, what brand of an item is preferred, how to freeze the recipe, etc.) Loved the book so much, I bought and sent it to my Mom for Mother's day. She loves it too.

Most of the books I have read by Joann Fluke have a great mystery included with the recipes. I did not think in terms of this just being a cookbook. I was disappointed.

I am from Minnesota so these stories are fun for me. But no matter where you live it's a book you can not set down. It is a clean easy read. A real page turner. A good book to read for the joy of reading.

Pretty good but it was more a beginners cookbook than a novel.

A nice cookbook with some helpful hints and interesting twists on recipes.  Ingredients are not things that you would normally stock in the kitchen, but still nice to see the recipes from the series in one collection.

It is so nice to have so many of the story's recipes all in one place! I was finding myself hunting through my large collection of "Cookie Jar" mysteries every time I wanted to make a new delicacy, and that was frequent. THANKS!

I love this cookbook. The recipes are easy to follow and delicious. I have already "created" three versions of one cookie. I have tried recipes from her mystery books and was excited when the cookbook came out. I bought one for my step-mother and she is from Wisconsin. I know she is going to love it, she loves the books the same as I. I can't wait for cookbook number two!!!

I thought this was going to be only a collection of all or most of the recipes that are in all the book. You know ALL recipes in one place. I didn't not expect the story. And where are all the recipes? Also what I found very odd was that there was Not a category of "Cookies" there was Cookie Bars, but not Cookies. Which is really strange since she always has cookies in all story about "The COOKIE Jar" My daughter's favorite is "Chocolate-Covered Cherry Delights" from book one.
