Yes, this is the very buttery caramel fudge (with an Irish Cream kick) that my amateur sleuth used to bribe a New York Police Department Bomb Squad lieutenant in one of our most popular Coffeehouse Mysteries Billionaire Blend.

How to Add Delicious Dietary Fiber to your Cornbread with Spelt Flour by Cleo Coyle

recipe PDF.
Spelt flour comes from an ancient grain with more dietary fiber than all-purpose flour and a lovelier, more mellow flavor than whole wheat flour, which is why I like to incorporate it into my baking. 

As you can see in the photo above, spelt also brings a rustic, darker look to baked goods, along with a slightly nutty flavor note that’s quite tasty.

Fully-Loaded Irish Colcannon by author Cleo Coyle

Print Friendly and PDF


As mystery writers, murder is our business. As cozy mystery writers, so is word play. And that is primarily how this dish came about. 


Click here for the 
free recipe PDF.
Back in 2009, my husband and I were writing Roast Mortem, a book that pays tribute to the FDNY, which has a long history of Irish pride. During our collaboration, we joked about what might happen if we "loaded" the colcannon. 

Wait a second, we thought, why not fully load it—like a baked potato?!

Marc and I then put the recipe together much like New York City puts its cultural communities together...


We started with a basic Irish colcannon of cabbage and potatoes; added an Italian kiss of olive oil and hug of warm, sweet garlic; and finished the dish with an American-style flourish of gooey melted cheddar and smoky crumbled bacon.

While Irish Oatmeal works great in these muffins, you don't have to use steel cut oats. I often use plain "old fashioned" Quaker oats for this recipe.

Like writing, cooking is an inspirational occupation, and often the ingredients dictate the dish. In this case, a gorgeous green bundle of piney rosemary did the talking: "Chop me up and cook me with a chicken," Rosemary whispered.


I blinked and her needling little voice was gone, replaced with a rather burly produce manager, wondering why I had his herbs to my ear. Well, here's the reason...

A Central Park Walk with author Cleo Coyle

Cleo Coyle, whose husband
is also her partner in
crime-writing, is author of
The Coffeehouse Mysteries.

Pop Quiz:
Where was the above photo taken?

A. New Hampshire


B. Vermont 

C. Central Park


Okay, so my post title gave it away, but could you have guessed otherwise? Central park is landscape magic. It makes an entire city disappear. And when the city is New York, that's saying something. 

Join me and my husband, Marc, as we take a beautiful walk through Central Park. This wasn't just any stroll. It was location research for our recent bestseller, Once Upon a Grind

If you've read our new Coffeehouse Mystery, you may recognize some of the landmarks and settings we used from the park: Belvedere Castle, the Ramble, Oak Bridge, etc.





Enjoy this virtual trip to our nation's first major 
landscaped public park. (Videos included.)

Alone in the Kitchen with a Cabbage

Print Friendly and PDF


I give you The Cabbage...



It looks like a big green planet, doesn't it? See the solar warmth on the left and the chilly dark side on the right? As the subject of a photo, I think it should have its own atmosphere. As the basis for a recipe, it's a smart choice. It's low in fat and calories and high in nutrition. As for what to do with it, there are countless ways to go. 


Click here for
the free PDF.
I found myself alone in the kitchen with this cabbage the other day, and decided to try Extreme Simple Cooking. Let's abbreviate it to ESC, like the Escape key on your computer keyboard. Seems appropriate because recipes like this one let you escape from the kitchen as fast as possible. And to that end, away we go!
