Lucy’s Recipe Round-Up

I realized that since joining the wonderful mystery writer/recipe blog Mystery Lovers Kitchen, I’ve been lax about posting recipes to this blog. But I have been cooking–and eating–so here I’ve gathered a few of my favorites.

Good for anything granola–I call it that because I’ve served it everywhere from a wedding brunch to a sailboat and it’s always popular!

I served these scalloped potatoes at our bi-monthly supper club–they were rated swoonworthy, even if not on anyone’s diet.

These stuffed mushrooms are an oldie but goodie–an easy appetizer that’s a step up from cheese and crackers.

My mother-in-law loves these stuffed peppers. In fact the whole family does too!

When we go out to an Italian restaurant, guaranteed either my husband or I will order the broccoli rabe. Here’s my version–easy and good for a family supper.

Don’t forget this strawberry-rhubarb coffee cake–it’s one of the recipes coming in DEATH IN FOUR COURSES–September!

I’m a huge sucker for sesame noodles, but this recipe is my favorite outside of what you get in a Chinese restaurant.

I know it’s not exactly pea soup season, but bookmark this for the fall–pea soup and cornbread, couldn’t be better on a cold night!


New recipes are posted every day of the week on Mystery Lovers Kitchen, from my fellow writers Krista Davis, Avery Aames, Ellery Adams, Cleo Coyle, Sheila Connolly, Wendy Watson, and Peg Cochran, plus lots of guests too. Please stop by! And we’ve got less than two months to go before the publication of DEATH IN FOUR COURSES! If you haven’t already, I’d love to have you follow me on Twitter, or facebook, or Pinterest.

Mystery Writers as Pack Animals

I am just back home from five days of traveling for the annual MWA Edgars week followed by a booksigning at Salt and Pepper Books in Occoquan, VA, and then the Malice Domestic convention in Bethesda. And the party continues without me today at the Mystery Lovers Bookshop in Oakmont, PA. These events are exhausting, but wonderful–such fun to meet with fans, spend time with author friends that I usually only ‘see’ online, and have face time with my editor and agent and lots of other publishing folks. I promised myself two things this year–I would get some work done on the road, and take more pictures. Zero for zero:(.

Anyway, the picture on top is me with fellow Jungle Red Writers bloggers Rosemary Harris and Hallie Ephron, who was a nominee for the Mary Higgins Clark award for NEVER TELL A LIE. The next photo is from the culinary mystery booksigning with Sheila Connolly, Avery Aames, and Krista Davis at Salt and Pepper Books in Occoquan, VA. If you are a cookbook and food writing nut, this adorable store is not to be missed!

My¬† story, The Itinerary, had been nominated for an Agatha award for best short story–here are the five nominees after our panel discussing the hows and whys of short mystery fiction. (Left to right, Krista Davis, Avery Aames, Barb Goffman, moderator Melodie Johnson Howe, Dana Cameron, and me.)

Dana was awarded the prized Agatha teapot on Saturday night–but believe me, it really was an honor to be nominated in the first place. And besides, how could I feel badly when my sweet friend Krista had already given me a miniature teapot, just in case, because we all deserved to be winners?

And that’s what I love about this business–the friends I’ve made, both readers and writers. It’s a marvelously generous and interesting community–hanging out with these people makes all that time at the computer feel like a breeze.

Well, not exactly, but close!
