OH, FUDGE!

Last week I made the Bailey's Irish Cream and Caramel-Nut Fudge and sent it to work with my husband. He travels to different locations and generally spends about one hour at each. The container was empty before he left! It was that good! So, last night (since we didn't have any more Bailey's and it was Sunday) I made the fudge using Kahlua instead. WOW! Thank you for all the wonderful recipes you have in the books and on your website.

Recipe Book

I hope that one day you will have a book with all your recipes! By the time I print them all out and get them into a binder maybe you will! The audio books have been wonderful for my road trips! I live quite a way from my parents and children so find myself driving distances that enable me to get at least one book (depending on who I am visiting) listened to! Rebecca Gibel does an excellent job of narrating! Thank you for so many hours of enjoyment!

LOVE the Secret Family Recipe

Love your April Fools-I fell for it! Also love your Coffeehouse Mysteries. I anxiously await for each new rollout. (I don't use Facebook but I always look forward to your emails for the latest.)

I LOVED THE BUTTER ON A STICK POST. VERY CUTE

I was really hoping that you had found a way to control the butter inside of some food product. I love butter and my Mom said as a kid, I ate it as is. She would have us shake a jar of cream and we would make butter often and after it was rinsed and salted, my sister and I always wanted to share it. It never looked like a lot (from a pint of cream) after made but even shared it was too much some times. I know Paula Dean was using butter in some friend recipes so you just topped her. Great April 1 column. Love, Cynthia

Okay, as soon as I typed the previous post, I found where to comment. I don't know how I missed it before. Thanks for the chance to win an awesome giveaway! ~Sarah

Where do I comment for the contests?

Call me crazy, but I cannot figure out where I am supposed to comment to enter the contests! Is it where it says "Comments" when it gives the poll results? I did comment there, but there are only 14 additional comments, so I'm not sure I have the right place. Help!! I want to enter your contests :) PS: I am on Coffeehouse Mystery #12 and loving them. Just started reading them in the fall, and I am hooked. I run a book club for our middle school staff, and I am considering having us all read the Coffeehouse Mysteries for all 10 months next year, and then making some of the recipes when we gather for book talking. ~Sarah

Looking forward to many hours of great reading and trying some great recipes.

NEED your recipes! They sound amazing!

I have always purchased the books for this series - have read them all and LOVE them. Recently, I have purchased via Audible and don't know how to get the recipes now... Any suggestions?

 

Cleo's reply - The audiobooks are wonderful fun, narrated by a talented actress. My favorite voice is Madame's--and it's truly a thrill to hear the characters of the Coffeehouse Mysteries brought to vivid life. As for the featured recipes in each book, these are included only in the print or digital copies and not in the audio versions.

The audiobooks, you must understand, are not simply "versions" of the print and digital books, they are produced performances of our work. So...for readers interested in the featured recipes for each mystery, you'll have to acquire the print or digital books to get those recipes, which are published inside. If you do, we hope you enjoy them!

Warmest wishes,

~ Cleo

Pecan Pie Muffins

I have read all the Coffee House Mystery Books and love them! I have also tried many of the included recipes and all have turned out except.... The pecan pie muffins completely stuck to my muffin tin. I used a non-stick pan and made sure the cups were well-greased, but they still stuck. Any suggestions? I would try greased parchment cupcake liners next time but am worried they will stick to that too. I definitely want to make them again because they were absolutely delicious!! Thanks for these books and all the great recipes. My sisters and I look forward to, and count down the days, to each book's release! Mary

Cleo's reply -- Hi, Mary! I'm so glad to know that you're enjoying our Coffeehouse Mystery books and the recipes we include as a bonus. Those Pecan Pie Muffins are really delicious, and they have turned out beautifully for me (see my photos below). I'm sorry about your sticky issue--if you'll excuse the pun! Let me try to help you with some suggestions. (1) I have found that well-used, non-stick pans can lose their ability to create a good, non-stick environment for your baked goods. If you have an older, well-used pan, that could be one issue. Even if you do have a good-quality non-stick pan, my suggestion would be (2) to use a generous amount of non-stick spray--(really generous). Also, (3) make sure you allow the muffins to cool at least five minutes (give it 10 minutes this time) before (4) running your knife around the edges (as the recipe instructs) to losen them and remove them from the pan. Also, (5) be sure to preheat your oven for at least 30 minutes. Many ovens do not preheat well. They'll beep after 10 minutes but they won't actually be runnning at the temperature you need. If the muffins are underbaked, they will stick. As with all cupcake and muffin recipes, be sure the top of the muffins are set well and fully cooked--they should spring back when touched.

I hope my suggestions help, and thank you again for your kind note about loving the books. My husband (and partner in crime writing) and I truly appreciate that!

Warmest java wishes,

~ Cleo

Photos of my Pecan Pie Muffins, 

from the recipe section

of Dead Cold Brew... 

I baked these muffins in a (good quality) non-stick muffin pan
with a
3.5 ounce cup capacity. NOTE: That is NOT
a jumbo muffin, it's a standard muffin, however...

If you are using a cupcake pan with a 3 ounce capacity
(rather than 3.5 ounce), your muffins will bake up a bit taller
with straighter sides. (Cup capacity is based on how
much liquid volume the muffin pan's cup will hold.)
No worries. Either way, they will taste delicious!

New Reader

I was just walking through the library and picked up this book A Brew to a Kill, I got in the car and read your acknowledgement page. I see this is a series and I usually like to read books in order but this looks like a good book, I hope I don't miss too much starting at book 11

 

 

Cleo's reply:

Hello, New Reader, and welcome to our Coffeehouse community. YES, by all means, enjoy A BREW TO A KILL. I write these books in collaboration with my husband, and he and I both strive to create stand-alone mysteries for readers like you. When you pick up any one of our books, you will learn about the characters as you read and the necessary information about their backgrounds and relationships to help you enjoy the stories (and prevent you from feeling lost).

 

If you like A BREW TO A KILL, you can either move forward to Coffeehouse Mysteries #12 and #13 (Holiday Buzz and Billionaire Blend), or you can start at the beginning and learn how Clare came to become a coffeehouse manager in Greenwich Village; how she met Mike Quinn, her NYPD detective boyfriend; and how their relationship grew over time. Those things you can learn as you read books #1 through #10...

for the Free Title Checklist of Books in Order.
It includes links to Free Recipe Guides, as well...

In closing, my husband and I hope you enjoy A BREW TO A KILL, and we sincerely hope you'll continue to come back to our fictional Village Blend coffeehouse...where coffee and crime are always brewing. 


Love,

Cleo
