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...

Oatmeal is a whole grain that brings nutrition and fiber to recipes, along with hearty and heartwarming flavor, but not all oatmeal pancake recipes are created equal.

A Central Park Walk with author Cleo Coyle

Print Friendly and PDF

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.

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!

My husband and I grew up on chipped ham sandwiches, a regional favorite in the Western Pennsylvania area where we (and Clare Cosi, our famous amateur sleuth) were born and raised. The "chipping" or shaving of deli ham is an excellent way to make a less expensive brand of ham more tasty.

Easy Blue Velvet Cupcakes and a Cupcake Menorah for Hanukkah from Cleo Coyle

Like red velvet cake, blue velvet carries a wonderful hint of cocoa. This is a beautiful cupcake for birthday parties and baby or wedding showers. Because blue is also the color for Hanukkah, I use this recipe to make a cupcake menorah for Hanukkah Week--and, no, unlike the oil, they do not last eight days! My husband and our friends eat them all on the very first night.

Healthified! These delicious chocolate cookies may have the flavor and texture of fudge brownies, but they are lower in fat. An entire can of pureed pumpkin takes the place of shortening in the recipe, bringing iron, dietary fiber, and vitamins A, C, and E to this Halloween party.
