Attention chefs! Ever get the hankering to whip up something yummy but simple like "Kinsey Millhone's Famous Peanut Butter And Pickle Sandwich"? Or maybe you'd like to boil water the Susan Silverman way? There are plenty of recipes in these two light-hearted (but frequently artery-clogging) volumes, with recipes and commentary from everyone from Edgar Allan Poe, Raymond Chandler and Agatha Christie right up to today's top writers, including Tony Hillerman, George Pelecanos, Anne Perry and Lillian Jackson Braun (or their characters). Highlights include Liza Cody's "Bacon Buttie,' Donald E. Westlake's "May's Mother's Tuna Casserole," Richard North Patterson's Sea Bass in Orange Sauce and Harlan Coben's "Myron's Potato Latkes." My only gripe is that Hannibal Lechter's recipes for "Shepherd's Pie and Baked Alaskan" have not been included. Probably some complaint from some fussy, overzealous PC types about the ingredients or something...
