LUCY BURDETTE: It's book launch week for KILLER TAKEOUT--haven't we all been waiting forever?? So who has time to cook when you want to be reading?
First, I'll tempt you with a little about the book:
KILLER TAKEOUT, the seventh installment in the Key West food critic mystery series, features Hayley Snow, an aspiring food critic and amateur sleuth living in America’s southernmost island paradise. The action kicks off during Fantasy Fest week, with a death during the zombie bike ride that is looking an awful lot like murder, and a major tropical storm gathering speed below Cuba.
Key Zest magazine has assigned food critic Hayley Snow to write a piece on the fest’s grab-and-go food, so she’s planning on hitting up the mobile eateries while checking out the party preparations. Meanwhile, Hayley’s office mate, Danielle, recently elected Queen of Fantasy Fest, is also buzzing between festivities and fundraisers. But when Danielle’s former royal rival gets taken out, Hayley needs to put down her party hat and her pen and figure out who served up a side of murder—before her friend gets crowned a killer.
Now, I'll give you a minute to order your book...or Tweet the news:

And now, the recipe! (If you have a Cuisinart ice cream maker, you will need to have the inner section frozen for at least 24 hours for attempting the ice cream. Otherwise, follow the directions on your machine.)
4-6 pink grapefruits, squeezed and strained, to make 4 cups juice
About 3/4 cup of sugar, depending on sweetness of your fruit
Juice the fruit, mix the sugar in, and chill for one to two hours in the fridge.
About 20 minutes before serving, add the mixture to the frozen container (first mixing the sugar in one more time) and flip the switch.
Isn't it gorgeous?
