Cozy Food Friday!
That means it's time to share a recipe from
another great cozy mystery!
Today I'm featuring a recipe from
SOME ENCHANTED MURDER
Linda S. Reilly
An Apple Mariani Mystery
In the small town of Hazleton, New Hampshire, a killer walks free . . .
his was a fun fast read. I had the pages turning so fast that I was almost afraid of setting the book on fire. I loved the characters and can’t wait to see them again very soon. This was a fun read and I think you will enjoy reading it too.
My review of this wonderful mystery
will be posted on the blog soon.
You won't find this yummy Kooky Macaroni in SOME ENCHANTED MURDER, However, it was inspired by the book and created by author Linda S. Reilly.
You can also find the recipe at Linda's Web Page.
Tressa Krichner might not be a top chef, but she has her moments of culinary inspiration. One evening years ago, when her young niece Apple was mourning the puzzling disappearance of her mom, Tressa jumbled together a selection of Apple’s favorite foods and baked it in the oven. The result was Kooky Macaroni. Though Apple is grown now and working as a paralegal, this simple and delicious meal remains her comfort food of choice.
Combine the following ingredients: (So easy!)
2 cups spicy tomato sauce (Tressa likes Barilla Spicy Marinara sauce)
One-half pound cooked, crumbled burger
3 cups cooked macaroni (mini-shells work well)
Sprinkle of garlic powder
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
2 tablespoons parmesan cheese
¼ cup chopped black olives (optional)
Directions: (So easy again!)
Place the mixture in a casserole dish coated with non-stick spray.
Bake for about 20 minutes at 350°, covering with foil to avoid burning the top.
Serves 4 to 6.
Thank you Linda Reilly for sharing photos of your own dinner of
Tressa's Kooky Macaroni!
It's be rainy here in Delaware
for the past couple of days, so I know what comfy cozy meal I'm making tonight!
Can't you just smell it looking at the photos?

My Book Beginnings...
From the journal of Frederic Dwardene, Thursday, November 9, 1950:
I have never written in a journal before, but today I was compelled to buy one. Where else can I express the giddiness I am feeling right now? In whom could I confide the emotions that some might find improper for a man my age? It began early this afternoon at the bank, when the most beautiful woman I have ever seen walked up to the teller's cage . . .

My Friday 56...
But kooky macaroni was an easy, delectable concoction Aunt Tressa invented when I was a kid.
"Right about now, a plate of kooky macaroni would really hit the spot."
Easy As 123...(Trying something new.
Along with Book Beginnings and Friday 56,
I have added my Easy As 123. So, here are a few
lines from page 123.)
My imagination began spiraling out of control. Wasn't a van the perfect vehicle for snatching a woman from her home and driving her to God-knows-where? Didn't the serial killers on those creepy crime shows always drive vans?
You are going to LOVE this book!
