Cozy Food Friday

and a


That means it's time to share a recipe from 
another great cozy mystery!

Today I'm featuring a recipe from
Book 8 in the Whales and Tails Mysteries
Kathi Daley

Come for the Murder Stay for the Romance Whales and Tails is a cozy mystery series set on Madrona Island, a fictional island within the San Juan Islands off the coast of Washington State. In this eighth book in the series, Cait's friend Alex returns to Madrona Island a vastly changed man from when she had just seen him six months prior. It seems that his newly found wealth has made an impact on his personality and not in a good way. During one of the legendary parties Alex has become famous for throwing, one of the guests dies and it looks as if Alex may have blood on his hands. Cait and Cody set out to prove Alex's innocence with the help of Ebenezer, the cat we met in The Cat of Christmas Past.

Cheesy White Chicken Enchiladas

Spray 9 x 13 baking dish with nonstick spray.

Mix in a bowl:

3 large chicken breasts, cooked and cubed
1 cup sour cream
8 oz. diced green chiles (Ortega)

Fill 8 medium flour tortillas with chicken filling.


In a medium saucepan combine:

1 stick butter, melted over medium heat
4 oz. cream cheese, added to melted butter and stirred until smooth
1 cup heavy whipping cream, stirred until blended
1½ cups grated Parmesan, stirred in slowly to avoid lumps

Pour over tortillas and top with 16 oz. Monterey Jack cheese, grated.

Broil for a few minutes to brown

You could change this on up lots of ways. 
Ground beef instead of chicken. 
Or your favorite veggies for a vegetarian version.

My Friday 56
(Page 56 is blank - this is from page 57)

Somewhere along the way, in the midst of solving a string of local murders, I’d gathered a sleuthing gang. There were times when certain members were more involved than others, but when there was a mystery that needed to be solved, you could bet that at some point I’d get together with Cody, Tara, Siobhan, Finn, and Danny to build theories and test hypotheses.

As always, please leave a comment and
