Thanks to Dana and Gayle for the invite to become a member of the Fatal Foodies.
This is all new to me since I’ve never blogged before. I read a lot of them, but just haven’t put my fingers to the keys and actually put in my two cents anywhere. Fatal Foodies is a great place to start since food rates high on my priority list.
I'm not sure I could write or read a book that wasn't permeated with food. My protagonist, Liza Wilcox, survives on take-out, diet Coke, black licorice, and Peanut M & M's. Thank God she had the good sense to fall in love with a small time sheriff who loves to cook. In the first book, Death is Clowning Around, there is lots of food but no recipes. Then in the second, Apple Pots and Funeral Plots, I’ve added a wonderful recipe for apple cobbler in the epilogue.
Right now, I’m editing the third in the series (no title at the moment) and I’m drooling over the warm, chocolate melting cake that Liza’s being feed by her boyfriend. It’s actually a cake I fell in love with last summer during a cruise to the Mexican Rivera. I had the same dessert every night! It’s warm, gooey, chocolaty, and melts in your mouth. Adding this to the book allowed me to spend days on the Internet searching for the recipe. Now I’ve got five to try …..yum!
I didn't start out to write a series that included a recipe, but it seems to be going in that direction. Sometimes food has a mind of its own.
