Guest Alicia Bessette with Sunday Morning Secret Ingredient Pancakes #giveaway

Hello from TINA KASHIAN! Please join me in giving a warm welcome to Alicia Bessette, author of SMILE BEACH MURDER. I’m thrilled to have her and try her delicious pancake recipe.


Just about every Sunday morning, I make extra fluffy and flavorful pancakes from scratch. My Secret Ingredients Pancakes never fail. The recipe is a jazzed-up version of Martha Stewart’s Easy Basic Pancake Recipe from 2006. It yields 12-15 smallish pancakes and is intended for 3-4 people.

For optimum results, I recommend serving with the mellow sounds of the early ’70s on vinyl (Van Morrison’s Moondance and Carole King’s Tapestry work well); the best quality maple syrup your budget allows; and your favorite toppings such as berries or sliced bananas or apples.

To celebrate the recent release of my debut cozy mystery, SMILE BEACH MURDER (Berkley), the first in a series, I’m giving away a signed hardback copy to one lucky commenter (U.S. only; contest closes at midnight on Thursday, June 2). Let me know your favorite breakfast food! Mine is a tossup between these pancakes and avocado toast with smoked sea salt. Please be sure to include your email address so that I can contact the winner. Thanks so much!
