Happy Thanksgiving from Mystery Lovers' Kitchen!

LESLIE BUDEWITZ:  Thank you all, dear readers, for letting us share our love of good food and good mysteries with you all through the year. You allow us to do what we do best: tell stories, whether on the page, on the screen, in pictures, or on the dining room table. When we count our blessings, I know each of us includes you.

Here's a recipe from a year ago for Spiced Pumpkin Seed Brittle, a treat I know you'll enjoy this busy weekend -- and beyond!

LUCY BURDETTE: Happy Thanksgiving everyone! I hope your day has turned out just as you imagined...friends? family? food? We are so grateful for all of our readers, who are friends too after all these years. And I am thankful for my blog sisters, for their warm hearts and great food and entertaining books! You all deserve a day out of the kitchen so I'm sending you flowers instead of more recipes:)

Peg CochranToday we give thanks for all of you, our readers! And for the privilege of writing books for you.  Happy Thanksgiving to you all!  I hope you are celebrating with friends, family and plenty of good food!  If you want to change things up, here is a recipe for pumpkin roll that is so delicious!

Krista Davis: Happy Thanksgiving to all our wonderful readers. I have gotten to know so many of you through this blog, and I'm so appreciative of your friendship. I always look forward to reading your comments and hearing about your lives. May you all be surrounded by family, good friends, and good food today, celebrating the many joys in our lives. I just took my favorite pie out of the oven. I hope you'll be eating some of your favorites, too!

Sheila Connolly (who is hiding out in Ireland rather than facing a turkey!). Thank you to all our readers who allow us to share our recipes, spicy and sweet, simple and complicated. Cooking and in particular sharing food at events like Thanksgiving is at the heart of any community, and we feel that all of you are part of our family. Have a wonderful day.

Cleo Coyle: Cheers to our readers for helping to make this Kitchen a warm and cozy source of good food, good times, and good community. May you eat with joy today and always and may your Thanksgiving tables be blessed!

Linda Wiken:  Such a wonderful time of the year to be sharing with family and friends. I certainly hope you are.  Thank you for being a part of our food lives and for your many comments over the months and years. I'd like to share a look at some of my most recent cookbook buys as my Thanksgiving gift to you. Maybe you'll find one to help inspire your menus, too. 

Mary Jane Maffini aka Victoria Abbott As Canadians, Victoria and I get to celebrate Thanksgiving more than once. How lucky is that? We have much to be thankful for, especially the wonderful community of readers and writers who live in our mysterious world. We have made friends for life here and we treasure all of you! We hope your Thanksgiving is full of wonderful food, friends and family. At the end, we hope you can put your feet up and catch up on your reading. Or watch the turkeys on the lawn as we did last year! Whatever you do, have fun.

Gobble gobble!

  6. Happy Thanksgiving! I had a busy day, starting with singing in the choir at two churches, followed by helping get dinner on the tables for the 24 of our family members that made it home. Games were played and walks were taken. Leftovers were eaten. A very fun, busy day!
