The Big Three OH!!!!

aaaaah! my bro says I'm Now officially an Adult. I turned thirty today (the 30th of dec) and after going to the gym for the first time in years yesterday, I can feel every last second of the last 30 years! lol

hope you had a great christmas, was Java Claus good to you? My mom copied some recipes from HOLIDAY GRIND and she made the apple cider syrup up as a christmas present for someone. Tonight My bf will take me to the Keg for dinner. Do you have that over there? (it's a very nice steakhouse for those of you who don't know)

Happy New Year, Cleo...

P.S. Will Jack pay us a visit again in the coming year?

Chelle - feeling older than the mountains but younger than the sea! lol

 

Cleo's reply:

HAPPY 30TH BIRTHDAY TO MY FAVORITE CANADIAN READER! CHELLE!!

I guess I'm too far away to bake you a birthday cake, so I'll have to resort to a virtual one...

 

 Wishing you every good thing for your birthday, for the New Year, and the New Decade!

~ Cleo

 

P.S. Thrilled to hear that your mom made a recipe from HG! Woot! And as to your question about "the ghost" - Never fear, Jack is near, and will be here, later this year!

Merry Christmas, happy holidays, yada yada yada

Cleo-

I'm glad you enjoyed the 12 days of Christmas, java style. My pentameter was off a little on some of them but it's the love of coffee, and your books, that counts, right?

Merry Christmas
from one of your biggest fans

~~Nurse JudyMac

My holiday treat!

I have been saving the reading of Holiday Grind as my very special holiday treat...to myself.

My plan is to settle in this weekend...with coffee of course....and enjoy the book.

Happy holidays to all!

Struffoli

I was hoping you would have the recipe for making struffoli—I lost my mother's and no other recipe tastes like hers.

Thanks

Cleo's reply:

I am looking forward to posting the Struffoli recipe! Check back again in the coming weeks or subscribe to my free e-newsletter so I can let you know when it goes live on this site.
     The writing life being what it is, I don't think I'll be able to get that recipe posted before Christmas.
     (I'm under a tight writing deadline at the moment and I have other bonus recipes ready to go first.)
     But...as I explained on my "Get Cleo's Recipes" page (click the coffee cup in the left column to go to that page), I will be posting all of my promised bonus recipes over time right here. My seasonal e-newsletter is your best bet for not missing the chance to get them when they go up. 
     
I don't keep recipes posted indefinitely. New ones go up and then old ones go down as I need the  space on my site.
     I absolutely know what you mean about a mother's recipe. I can only hope what I finally post will comes close. If not, you should definitely drop back and let me know what you would do to change or improve it!

Cheers, Happy Holidays, and thank you so much for dropping by and posting your question...

No Problem...

Hey! Lol, just responding back to you again : ) It is absolutely NO problem reading your books (I now know)! I am really enjoying it. Everyone keeps asking me, "What's this?" and I go off on a huge tangent about it! It's pretty suspensful. Definitely not sure what's gonna happen next (with Matteo!?)... Thanks for writing so creatively! I'm hoping my friends might get the hint of what to get me for Xmas this year ; D

Talk to you later,
~ Hannah

Cleo's reply: Thank you, Hannah.
LOL! and...

A Bit of Heaven ~ Chocolate & Orange

Looks like I can now make my favorite candy too. Will dip the orange peels in some dark chocolate and then I'll be in heaven.

All of your yummy pictures make me want to cozy down with some coffee, an afghan and the lastest, Holiday Grind, of course. Also looking forward to more about Pen and Jack too. Wishing all of you and your characters a most Merry Christmas and the best new year ever!

COL Sandy
(chocolate orange lady)

Cleo's reply:

Thanks again, Sandy!

Merry Christmas to you
and a Java New Year!!


December 11, 2009

I'm back!

Hey, Cleo!

I left a message for you last month...

{Click here to see Hannah's original message}

...I was asking if you thought the books were good for high schoolers. Well, I started On What Grounds 2 days ago and am almost halfway through it!

I LOVE it!! Love the coffee tips too, by the way. I have been passing them onto my mom. I have (now) added them to my Xmas list and bragged about them to my friends!

Thanks!

Cleo's reply:

Hi, Hannah! Just other day, I was wondering whether you decided to give my books a try. I am so happy to learn that you did. BTW: That is the absolute best holiday gift that you can give to an author: read her book! LOL!

Thank you for dropping by to let me know. I'm delighted to hear that you are enjoying my first Coffeehouse Mystery (so far, anyway)! :-)

Keep in touch and... Happy Holidays to you, your mom, and all of your friends and family...

~Cleo

Gingersnap Latte!

 

Hi Cleo,

Blizzard warning here in Michigan today, so a perfect time to try one of your Fa-la-la-la latte recipes. I made the Gingersnap Latte with your homemade gingersnap syrup--perfect! It's not too sweet, with just the right amount of spice. I'm not usually a fan of sweetened lattes, but this one is delicious.

Thanks!
~ Judy

Cleo's reply:

Judy! I am THRILLED to hear that you liked my Gingernap Latte recipe...(for anyone who wants to try it, you can find it in the recipe section of Holiday Grind, my latest Coffeehouse Mystery).

I so enjoy baking gingersnap cookies at this time of year and a "Gingersnap Latte" just made sense to me. Developing the syrup was a lot of fun. Thank you for letting me know you tried it and enjoyed it.

Stay warm, now and Happy Holidays to you and your family!

~Cleo

Even the Cats liked it!

Hi Cleo,

My sister sent me a picture via my cellphone so I Can't post it for you unfortunatly, my cell won't do that for me. While she was reading the copy of Holiday Grind I lent her from the library, she left it on her bed to go do something, When she came back her cat (Nike) was cuddling with it, his head in the pages lol. and her other cat (Meowf) was cuddling with Nike.

Happy Holidaze

 

I enjoyed Holiday Grind. Thanks for a great read. Have a great holiday and enjoy your feast of seven fishes.

In our house, we do the "feast of seven porks" since I dropped a pan of stuffed calamari between my apron and bare skin a few years back. My friends enjoy all the salami, capicola, speck, coppa, proscuitto, sopressata di Calabria, and mortadella with buffala de mozzarella and other traditional cheeses, breads and salads while vegan me eats the veggies.

Hoping that the new year brings you more success and me more of Jack and Pen. (please)

 Cleo's reply: LOL! Love the fishy tale. Thank you for sharing. And as to the next Haunted Bookshop mystery...

Never fear,
Jack is near
and will appear
in the New Year!

~Cleo

Can't Wait for Christmas

 

Hi Cleo, I asked "Santa" (my hubby) for Holiday Grind for Christmas. Glanced through a copy at the book store. Can't wait to settle down with your latest story and a cup of Southern Comfort coffee as well as absorb all of your coffee goodies in the back.

Your loyal Chocolate Orange lady,
~ Sandy

P.S. Your cappuccino and biscotti looks wonderful. ~ COL (chocolate orange lady)

 

Cleo's reply: Shout-out to my Chocolate-Orange Girl! I am honored and flattered to be one of your asked-for Christmas gifts! Thank you! And I hope you enjoy my latest.

Happy Holidays to you and your family,
~ Cleo

P.S. I actually thought of you and smiled as I worked on the final recipe in this book. When you get the book, just turn to the last recipe and you'll see what mean! LOL!

Hi!

I have a food/healthy living blog and I made your Cappuccino Muffins today out of one of your Coffeehouse Mystery books. They turned out wonderful! ...

Best,
Brandi
http://branappetit.wordpress.com/

 

 

 

Cleo's reply:

Thanks, Brandi! I am so glad that you liked the recipe. For anyone interested in making my Cappuccino Muffins with Sweet Frothy Tops, Brandi used the recipe out of my 5th Coffeehouse Mystery: Decaffeinated Corpse.

BTW: Clare served these muffins to a character just before interrogating him. (Yeah, I'd say these muffins are just about good enough to make anyone talk. :-)

To read Brandi's post about making my Cappuccino Muffins, including some amazing step-by-step photos, CLICK HERE, and you will jump to her recent "mysterious muffins" post at her delightful "Branapetit" blog.

 

Java joy you, Brandi!
Thank you again not only for
making my muffings but also
for blogging about them! Woot!
