Welcome to our kitchen! Pull up a stool and let us pour you a cup of coffee. We'll have a chat as a pot of tomato basil soup bubbles on the stove. While the soup is simmering, feel free to sit back, relax, and listen to the sizzle of lemon chicken cutlets crisping to a golden brown in the frying pan. By the time we catch up on work and family and start discussing the last book we've read, the buttery, cinnamon scents of the apple ginger pie baking in the oven will curl around our shoulders like a warm shawl and coax a sigh of contentment from our lips.

Friends, food, and fellowship. That is what home feels like. And the kitchen is the heart of the home. This sense of warmth and companionship is what The Cozy Chicks try to invoke in our novels. And now, our cookbook will invite you to enter the heart of our cozy mystery worlds--the stories of our characters and of their authors, told through food. For a short while, our protagonists have taken a break from crime solving to don aprons and wield spatulas and wooden spoons. And they'd like nothing more than to spend some time with you.

"If you're looking for a great cookbook--one you'll actually turn to again and again. Search no more! THE COZY CHICKS KITCHEN is chock full of mouthwatering gems. Everything is here: main dishes, desserts, salads, soups, drinks, and did I mention desserts? Don't miss this fabulous collection. Get yours today!" --Julie Hyzy, New York Times bestselling author of the White House Chef and Manor House mysteries

Wonderful collection of homestyle recipes with little introductions from the authors of 7 bestselling cozy mystery series.

When I first saw this cookbook, I knew I had to have it! I'm a real recipe cozy mystery bluff and a cookbook with recipes from the Cozy Chicks (7 of the best cozy mystery writers and their series recipes) who could pass that up? The recipes are all great, but my favorites come from the dessert section, Ellery;s Banana Puddin' Pie, Karen's Famous Lemon Icebox Pie, Maggie's Cinnamon Rolls. This is definitely a "go to" for any cook, especially if you are a fan of cozy mysteries and these authors in particular.

I originally bought "The Cozy Chicks Kitchen" cookbook collection to support the mystery authors whose books I love to read. I have read the books and usually passed them on without copying the recipes. Well, now I have them all in one volume. There's an impressive number of them and they all sound delicious. These days easy to prepare dishes appeal to me and this book is big on easy, because these cooks are writers who don't always have all day to spend at the stove. With that in mind, I have a list of dishes I will try next: Mr. Cabrera's Tasty Chicken Cordon Bleu - only five ingredients and baked in the oven,not fried! Since I'm always looking for healthy chicken recipes - Kate Collins Mystery Grilled Chicken Strips either grilled or oven baked will do nicely. The spicy mustard and smoky paprika sound delicous! My plan is to serve fish at least twice a week. Salmon is a favorite, but now for something different - Baked Flounder with Fresh Lemon Pepper by Leanne Sweeney sounds wonderful. Andy's Coleslaw will go good with the flounder. That recipe is from Lorraine Bartlett (also known as L.L. Bartlett and Lorna Barrett, depending on the mystery series.) this coleslaw has the same veggies as the one made by my daughter's mother-in-law, but instead of mayonaisse mixed with creamy slaw dressing "Andy" uses oil, vinegar, sugar, celery seed, which I am fond of, and a bit of salt. The one thing I will do differently is cut the sugar in half. When I make my own recipe I don't use any sugar, so this may seem sweet enough for us. For dessert - wow, what a hard decision! I make an easy pineapple cake using a cake mix and adding crushed pineapple and sometimes coconut, but don't often have a cake mix available. Leanne's South of the Border Cake solves that problem. This cake is a simple recipe and uses crushed pineapple and I could add coconut, couldn't I? There is a recipe for a creamy frosting which my family will like, but I also like this cake without frosting, along with a cup of tea or coffee. Or - should I bake Ellery's Chocolate Mocha Cake? It sounds decadent and delicious. If it's for a family gathering I could make both. Yes! You can't miss with this cookbook. In the last pages there is a section on the authors and their books, so you will have a handy reference for new mysteries to sample.

I love cookbooks and I love cozy mysteries, so getting a copy of THE COZY CHICKS KITCHEN with recipes from my favorite cozy authors was a must. I’ve had it for a year now (This second edition came out in 2014 and I was a bad reader and forgot to leave a review then!), and not only have I enjoyed many of the recipes, I have actually read it through several times. This book has a bit of everything covered…Starters, soups, salads and veggies, main dishes, pies, cakes, and other sweets treats, and other assorted dishes. All of them are so simple to make, which is great. And more importantly, the ones I have tried so far are delicious. No doubt many, if not all of your favorite cozy mystery authors have recipes on these pages. Ellery Adams / J. B. Stanley, Deb Baker / Hannah Reed, Lorraine Bartlett / L. L. Bartlett / Lorna Barrett, Kate Collins, Mary Kennedy, Mary Jane Maffini, Maggie Sefton, and Leann Sweeney. They all make up The Cozy Chicks. And a new chick since this book is Duffy Brown! So hopefully that means a third edition or even better, THE COZY CHICKS KITCHEN II. Hey, a girl can live in hope! If you haven’t purchased this cookbook because you figure you already have all the recipes in the cozy mystery books by these authors, think again. There are some recipes that you can only find in this book! I could go on and on singing the praises of THE COZY CHICKS KITCHEN, but I think the best way for you to find out how great it is, is for you to order a copy for yourself. Honest, you will not regret it!

I've read all of your Antiques and Collectibles series, however, I saw this book on Amazon and it had such a lovely cover I started searching for it.  LOL, I already read it, I thought so after I read the description.  It's too bad the Nook didn't have the same lovely cover as Kindle.  I really enjoy the artwork on all the cover pages of books I read.

What can I say about “The Cozy Chicks Kitchen”? Oh yes, I love it! The book is one I came across by pure chance and I think it must have been fate because I love this book. You’ve heard of comfort food – well this book is comfort food reading! It has kept me up many nights, paging through one delicious-sounding recipe after another, unable to decide which to try first. The book tells us a bit about the authors, books and characters (which has inspired me to make a list of all the books and gradually start working my way through them), and is really like having a chat and a slice of cake with a best friend. The recipes are all simple and comforting yet completely mouthwatering, and there’s something to impress at every occasion – though the dessert section has to be everyone’s favourite! Buy this book and enjoy!
