Cozy Food Friday!

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

Today I'm featuring a recipe from the cozy mystery 
Book 5 in the Library Lover's Mystery series
Jenn McKinlay 

The New York Times bestselling Library Lover's mysteries continue with a hot new case...

Loving a good cup of coffee runs in the family for Briar Creek library director Lindsey Norris. But when her brother, Jack, a consultant for a coffee company, goes missing, her favorite beverage becomes a key clue in a dangerous mystery.

Between preparing the library for the holidays and juggling the affections of ex-boyfriend, Captain Mike Sullivan, and her new crush, actor Robbie Vine, Lindsey has her hands full. But the mysterious disappearance of her world-traveling playboy brother takes precedence over all.

Afraid that involving the police could brew trouble for Jack, Lindsey takes matters into her own hands. But as her quest for her brother embroils her in a strange case involving South American business dealings and an enigmatic and exotic woman, it’ll take the help of both her library book club—the crafternooners—and her eager-to-please suitors to keep Jack from ending up in hot water…


On to the yummy recipe!



1 (10 - ounce) package frozen chopped spinach
1 (16 - ounce) container sour cream
1 (8 - ounce) can sliced water chestnuts, drained and chopped
1 cup mayonnaise 
1 package Knorr vegetable soup mix
3 green onions chopped (optional)

Mix all the ingredients in a large bowl and let chill for 2 hours.

Serve in the bowl with dipping options such as bread cubes, crackers or fresh veggies on the side. 

You can also hollow out a large loaf of sourdough bread and put the dip inside.

Tear up the removed inside of the bread for dipping. Yum.

                                                             Please note that all food photos are from Google Images.
Your version may vary in appearance.

This sounds like a nice change from all the hot versions of this dip. And so easy to make! 

Perfect for all the holiday dinners and parties coming up!

The Author
The hardest decision New York Times bestselling author Jenn McKinlay ever had to make was what to major in during college. Then she discovered the sanctuary of the library and library science—a major that allowed her to study all the subjects. She loves working as a librarian. After all, what other occupation allows you to research the ethnobotanical properties of agave, perform a puppet show for twenty wiggly toddlers, and try to answer why the rabbit’s foot is considered lucky, all in the same day? Jenn is the author of the Cupcake Bakery Mysteries, including Sugar and IcedGoing, Going, Ganache, and Red Velvet Revenge, the Hat Shop Mysteries, includingDeath of a Mad Hatter and Cloche and Dagger, and the Library Lover's mysteries, including Read It and WeepBook, Line, and Sinker, and Due or Die. She lives in Scottsdale, Arizona, in a house that is overrun with books, pets, kids, and her husband’s guitars.
