The Bonus Tracks

Back to cozy-time!

Finished reading Murder Most Frothy, and this is my favorite type of cozy to read, I've decided. Do you want to know why? Let me tell you why:

The Bonus Tracks!

At the back of the book is a list of coffee-making tips and recipes. Awesome. In the spirit of both the holiday season and the idea that cozies also give us extra stuff...see below for Jenny (with Bronwen as her Big Helper) participating in the bonus track of "Flourless Kahlua Chocolate Cake":

The Ingredients:



The Process:


The results? A smashing, yummy-full cake that is now in the fridge cooling off. Judging from the smells...a chocolate lover's delight.


**A side note on the importance of clarity in the bonus tracks:

Nowhere is clear, concise language more necessary than in directions. If a recipe calls for a specific item, or a specific method, it is very important that those directions be understandable. Especially regarding things like food. One typo could potentially poison your reader. So be careful!

  1. Agreed! I bought a cookbook from the, now defunct, Scottish Society of the Pikes Peak Region. Some lovely recipes. However, the gingerbread recipe simply says "pour into greased and floured cake pan." Size? Shape? Anyone? Bueller?
