The Mystery Writers of America Cookbook: Wickedly Good Meals and Desserts to Die For
edited by Kate White
Amazon | Goodreads

Hard-boiled breakfasts, thrilling entrees, cozy desserts, and more--this illustrated cookbook features more than 100 recipes from legendary mystery authors. Whether you're planning a sinister dinner party or whipping up some comfort food perfect for a day of writing, you'll find plenty to savor in this cunning collection. Full-color photography is featured throughout, along with mischievous sidebars revealing the links between food and foul play. Contributors include Lee Child, Mary Higgins Clark, Harlan Coben, Nelson DeMille, Gillian Flynn, Sue Grafton, Charlaine Harris, James Patterson, Louise Penny, Scott Turow, and many more.

=====> I flipped through this and found yummy recipes mostly in the comfort food zone. Each recipe had an intro to the mystery author and their mystery genre specialty which I liked.
