A note from Krista ~
This January first, we're going through some changes at Mystery Lover's Kitchen. It's with great sadness that we're waving so long to Jenn McKinley. She's bowing out to spend more time writing her delightful books. We're sorry to see her go, and we'll certainly miss her. Don't worry, Jenn promises to come back and visit!
On a happier note, three new regulars will be joining us on Saturdays. We're thrilled to add Wendy Lyn Watson, Sheila Connolly, and MJ Maffini to Mystery Lover's Kitchen!
Wendy Lyn Watson writes the Mystery A La Mode series about Tallulah Jones, proprietor of Dalliance, Texas’s old-fashioned ice-cream parlor. In addition, Wendy is a vegetarian, so she'll be sharing some great meat-free dishes.
Well, what better way to start the new year than
1 box devil's food cake mix
In a mixing bowl, stir together the cake mix, cinnamon and chile powder, plus salt and pepper. Add eggs, water and oil. Stir until the mix is just combined, then add the ground chocolate stir until all of the dry ingredients are moistened. Do not overmix.
- it takes about 10 minutes to make (before photo taken at 10:52, after photo at 11:00);
- it's pretty;
- it's delicious;
- you can get just about every ingredient at the corner 7-11;
- it has protein and veg in it, so you can rationalize eating the whole pan yourself; and
- while I have no firsthand experience (riiiight....), I've heard it's excellent hangover food.
Happy New Year from all of us to all our friends who make Mystery Lover's Kitchen such a special and fun place!
