Anyone who knows me knows that I have two favorite genres of books. Cozy mysteries and cookbooks. I am in Heaven when I have the chance to read a cookbook based on a cozy mystery series. I mean, come on! It’s the best of both worlds! So, when the CALLIE’S KITCHEN MYSTERIES COOKBOOK hit my radar, I knew I had to have it. Again, best of both worlds, and, I’m a huge fan of the Callie’s Kitchen Mysteries!

Author Jenny Kales of course brings wonderful Greek recipes from her Callie’s Kitchen series, but that’s not all. As she says in her Note from the Author . . . “While the book contains several delicious and authentic Greek recipes, it is not a comprehensive Greek cookbook . . .” “. . . this cookbook is meant to be a window into the world of my character, Callie . . .” So, you’re going to find a little bit of everything!

Within the pages of this book you will find Tips from Callie’s kitchen, new recipes, new scenes, and excerpts from her books! And you’ll drool over recipes such as Feta Cheese Bites, Fried Zucchini, Spring Spanakorizo (Greek Spinach Rice), Speedy Skillet Pastitsio, Greek Coffee, Greek Roasted Lemon Potatoes, Callie’s Perfect Pie Crust, Beat on the Bay Blueberry Pie, Chi Spice Cake and so much more!

Rather you get CALLIE’S KITCHEN MYSTERIES COOKBOOK, for the recipes, or for the new scenes from the wonderful cozy mysteries, you just can’t go wrong with this book!

Note: You know I love photos in my cookbooks. However, recipe books based on series books, seldom if ever have photos included. So, go into it knowing that, and enjoy this wonderful cookbook!
