Welcome to our Cozy Kitchen!

by Lorna Barrett / Lorraine Bartlett / L.L. Bartlett

Come and get it!  And by that, I mean THE COZY CHICKS KITCHEN!

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 allow you to enter the heart of our cozy mystery worlds—the stories of our characters, of their authors, told through food. For a short while, our heroines 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.

By the way, I cannot take credit for that lovely paragraph above.  Our own Ellery wrote it!

But I can take credit for 1/7th of the recipes included in the cookbook, which if full of wonderful recipes from all of us:  Deb Baker (Hannah Reed), Ellery Adams (J.B. Stanley), Leann Sweeney, Heather Webber (Heather Blake), Kate Collins, Maggie Sefton and ... me ... not forgetting many of the characters from our various mystery series.

But don't just take my word for it. 

"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. I’ve got both the ebook version and a hardcopy. Get yours today!"
--Julie Hyzy, New York Times bestselling author of the White House Chef and Manor House Mysteries

We hope you'll enjoy our recipes as much as we do.  So, now, -- get cooking!
