One of the recipes in this book was
Delta Corn Pancakes. These have
vegetables in them. My family really
enjoyed these! We think they
will be great for serving to overnight
guests when we serve breakfast!

Skeleton Letters (A Scrapbooking Mystery, #9)
This is the book we will discuss today! Did you enjoy the mystery? How do you like her suggestions for craft projects? Did you make any of her recipes?

I have yet to read any of the book club!!! I'm just behind in my reading. I love mysteries, and mysteries and food!! Well you can't loose can you!! I read a detective series once and he made sandwichs throughout the book. I made them all!!

Still trying to finish this book. Got caught up in another good book and couldn't put it down. So far this is OK, maybe I'm just tired of mystery books, although I do love the recipes. Will try to make the pancakes and some of the other recipes soon. Hope more people would join in but now that the weather is getting nicer outside I think people are getting busier. Although Ohio yesterday was 76 and day it's 40 so I've been cooking all day but unfortunately have not had time to do any of the books recipes.

I was impressed with the craft ideas in this book! I like the idea of place cards, which could also be stationery.

I didn't get to read it, either, sueb! What's the next book?

I did read the book and enjoyed it. I especially like the "Ava" character. Wish I had a friend like that. The recipes seem really interesting also. Easy and tasty sounding. I'm going to try the Popeye Pizza soon.

I read the wrong book! I forgot my list so when I checked the library and saw they had her latest, "The Agony of the Leaves," another teashop mystery I took that and enjoyed it and one of the recipes, Charleston Brownies. These are actually more of a blondie with pecans and we enjoyed them.

I was sure our library had it, but-whoops-wrong library! So I'm still waiting. I have enjoyed other books by Ms. Childs. I need to find the list and look for the next book. I hate to buy a book unless I absolutely have to, as I find it hard to part with a book once I've bought it (a reason to have a Kindle, but it's not the same).

Wow, was I the only one to read this book? Good book and recipes that are easy? Come on people! I love a good mystery, this book has it, and with recipes included?! A definate. Characters are something I look forward to reading about again and the recipes are something to really do.

About Me
Married and mother
My favorite things to cook
New England style food--vegetarian baked beans and brown bread. For Christmas, we need Kringla, and rosemary fudge. Valentine's Day isn't the same without cinnamon hearts, clove hearts, and peppermint hearts (these are all cream cheese mints). For Thanksgiving we use my great grandmother's plum pudding recipe to make figgy pudding.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Between Thanksgiving and Christmas, for each batch of cookies that are baked, 1/2 dozen go into the freezer. On Christmas, we assemble all the 1/2 dozens on a platter. It's a wonderful variety! The kids want 2 dozen of each kind of candy saved!
My cooking triumphs
New recipes! We've (the family) all won at state fairs. We love to come up with new ideas, then experiment!
My cooking tragedies
When I was called to the hospital because of a family emergency, I forgot to turn off the stove while cooking chicken. I returned home to a house that smelled awful! That was just a little while before overnight guests arrived! Another time, when I was canning sweet pickles, I had 7 quarts of hot sticky pickles in glass jars come crashing to the floor. Talk about a mess!
