Food & Drink

While my books don’t include recipes, food and drink definitely plays a role in the story. I thought it would be fun to share some of those recipes here. Just click on the photo for a PDF of the recipe.

Anneliese’s Almond Crescents

Glass Dolphin Antiques shop owner Arabella Carpenter loves shortbread cookies. I also love shortbread, especially this recipe for almond crescents, a wonderful Christmas tradition.


You can find the Treasontini on the cover of The Hanged Man’s Noose, which also happens to be the name of a pub in Lount’s Landing. The Treasontini, a blueberry martini, is the Noose’s signature drink.





From: Skeletons in the Attic

Best Ever Peanut Butter Cookies

Protagonist Callie Barnstable finds a grease-stained recipe for peanut butter cookies while sorting through a trunk in the attic filled with things from her mother. I was thinking of my mom’s peanut butter cookies when I wrote that part. I’ve never tasted better.
