Things heat up for bookstore owner Jenna Hart in the
latest Cookbook Nook mystery from the Agatha Award-
author of Fudging the Books.
As the Wild West Extravaganza rides into Crystal Cove,
California, Cookbook Nook store owner Jenna Hart is ready
indulge her appetite for grilled and barbecued treats and
maybe even try the Texas skip. But when the body of one
her father’s neighbors is found the next morning
in a bonfire, the rodeo revelry is extinguished.
Sylvia Gump had acquired plenty of enemies with
her practice of illegally encroaching on her neighbors’
properties—including Jenna’s dad, who was off fishing by
himself and has no alibi for the murder. Now it’s up to
Hart’s dutiful daughter to clear his name before the real
killer turns up the heat and rakes someone else over the
36 comments posted.

I wish Hallmark would make your novels into movies. You can be the
actress as well. 😊
(Mary Brockhoff 1:47pm August 1, 2016)
Hi, Mary! I wish they would, too, but I think Hallmark is backing off this
particular genre in the future. But you can certainly go to their FB page and
tell them. Hint, hint. ~ Daryl

books is the perfect combination for summer, or really

My favorite recipe is one for Dump Cake! I can mix and match based on what ingredients I have in the cupboard. Recently tried an equally easy Dump Dinner which is also easy and versatile.
(Joanne Kocourek 7:11pm August 1, 2016)
Maryann, thank you so much! I agree re: chocolate and reading!
Cheryl, I adore a hash brown casserole!
Joanne, I enjoy dump cakes. I make up all sorts of new ones every year
They're so easy! Where would we be without bundt pans?! ~ Daryl

My mint chocolate Christmas cake gets raves, but it's the
simplest recipe ever. Just crumble a large peppermint patty
into the dry mix, and swap out butter for the oil. Follow
the rest of the baking instructions. The frosting is 2 cups
of powdered sugar, half a stick of softened butter, 2 tbs of
milk, and 1 tbs of creme de menthe. Beat for 3 minutes. If
too thick, add more milk. Enjoy!

Anything with chocolate can't be all bad

What doesn't go with chocolate nothing
(Jeri Dickinson 4:56pm August 3, 2016)
I just love the covers of your books! Really cute and creative. They each tell a story of their own (at least to me!). Question: Do you have cats of your own?
(Valerie Stein 7:47pm August 3, 2016)
Love your books and recipes . My favorite is the bundt cakes with the surprise in the middle . The young grandkids always wonder how I put ' stuff ' inside the cake !!!!
(Joan Thrasher 10:04am August 4, 2016)
My favorite recipes would have to be basic and simple things - and of them
all I would probably have to say my favorite and easiest is cereal & milk. =/

German chocolate cake is sooo good

Wow, so many comments. Where to begin?
Nancy and Pen, glad you liked the recipe.
Sue - a crockpot is so wonderful!
Julie and Nadine and Teresa, this really is as easy as it sounds!
Marilyn, Melinda and Valerie, I'm so glad you like the cover. I adore my
ARTIST! Teresa Fasolino is her name.
Marcia, a mint chocolate Christmas cake sounds divine.
Jeri D, I adore German chocolate cake. Especially if I get to eat it in
Lily, cereal is a go-to food, isn't it? LOL
Joan and Angela, I have the easiest dump cake made with sherry. So
divine for book club parties.
Evelyn, you have stumped me. Magic Squares? Please share!
Marilyn, your veggie recipe sounds so easy and tasty! Definitely perfect
for an appetizer!
Thanks to all for chiming in. I'm thrilled to see you here.

7 cup salad is easy to make and easy to double & triple if you wish. It is a
fruit salad, but not overly sweet like so many are. You use one cup of each go
the 7 ingredients: sour cream, cottage cheese, shredded or flaked coconut,
mini marshmallows, well drained crushed pineapple, fruit cocktail (no juice),
and chopped pecans. Mix together all ingredients and refrigerate. Is better
after sitting a day or so. I am going to try your pudding recipe.
(Patricia Barraclough 12:24pm August 5, 2016)
The pudding sounds yummy, and I'll be sure to try it!!
My easy recipes, off the top of my head, are Ambrosia
salad, and Stuffed Celery. Congratulations on your latest
book, too!! It should be another hit!!
(Peggy Roberson 6:53am August 5, 2016)
Anything on the grill! And, of course, my wife's zucchini
patties! Your chocolate pudding looks yummy!
