A Cozy Kitchen Kinda Day--By Linda Kozar

When we're not writing about sinister characters, foreboding settings, murder and mayhem, cozy authors like cooking . . . and eating. Here's an easy recipe for a chilly day of writing mysteries or reading them. Pile the ingredients in, curl up in an easy chair to read and dinner will be ready whenever you're ready to pry yourself away from your book:)

  1. My husband adores cheese soup! I could even justify it as semi-healthy by adding the broccoli!

    Thanks for the yummy recipe, Linda.
