My Review:

The Mystery Writers of America Cookbook is wonderful for many reasons....

One - food.  Need I say more?  I don't because I know you get it, but me being me, I'm going to say more anyway.  Who doesn't love to find new recipes to pull your cooking out of the hum-drum monotony of the same thing over and over again every week?  When you grab a copy of this cookbook you're going to be exposed to a whole new way to prepare meals.  Those meals include breakfast, appetizers, soups and salads, entrees, side dishes, desserts, and cocktails.

Two - authors.  The recipes in this collection are from some of today's brilliant writers of all things mysterious.  Ben H. Winters has a delicious breakfast recipe for those who love omelets and Richard Castle brings forth hotcakes.  Sandra Brown divulges information about mysterious crackers and Kathleen Antrim provides the info on artichoke dip. Yum!  Mary Higgins Clark divulges details on how to make chili and John McEvoy digs up the goods for his goulash.  This is just a teaser sampling of what you can expect in this delicious cookbook.

Three - conversions.  How many times have you tried to prepare something and had to look up conversions on the internet?  What do you mean I'm the only one?!  I'm thinking not since the creators of the cookbook have gracious added a metric conversion chart to the end of the book. It's okay that you don't want to admit your guilt... :)

It would a crime not to grab a copy of The Mystery Writers of America Cookbook for your shelf.
