Let's Get Cooking!


I've been teasing you about my upcoming digital cookbook for ages, and I'm delighted to let you know that it is coming very soon.  This cover is so hot off the presses that it isn't even posted on Amazon yet!


Big Delicious Life is a digital collection of 150 recipes from my novels, including 40 recipes that had to be cut from the original books for space considerations.  Even better, because it is digital, it is a recipe resource you can keep in your pocket on your phone or tablet, perfect for those moments you are at the grocery store and don't know what to make for dinner!  I love having recipes on the go when I'm traveling or staying with pals, and there is something for everyone in here.

The absolute best part?  In a day and age when a new cookbook will run you anywhere from $25-$65?  Big Delicious Life is $3.79.  BOOM.  I've had such wonderful feedback from you all about cooking from the books, and I know what a pain it is to have to go searching through multiple books to find a recipe, so I really wanted to make all of them available in one super-convenient format, and at a price that makes it a real value, and an easy fun gift.  We're talking like 2 1/2 cents a recipe, people!

I spent a lot of time working on the indexing, so there are actually two ways to navigate, you can find recipes from a specific novel, but I've also indexed them based on ingredients, so if you are staring at a package of chicken in your fridge and don't know what to do with it, you can get all the chicken recipes in a flash.

It is currently available for pre-order and will be delivered to your E-Reader on October 21, in time for all of your holiday menu planning.  

I'm very proud of it, and can't wait to hear how you all like it.  Also?  It includes a chapter (and a recipe) from my upcoming new novel Recipe for Disaster just to whet your appetites.

Yours in Good Taste,
The Polymath


  1. Congratulations! Have pre-ordered my copy. Looking forward to it!

  2. will there be another format? I do not have access to an e-reader

    1. Sorry, this one is just digital for now, but you might be able to download a reader app on your computer...

  3. I love the ebook format! It is so much easier to use… and doesn't take a ton of space up (my cookbooks end up living in the basement and dug out on rare occasions)

  4. Yay!
    If only it were out today and had a recipe for a casserole using leftover chili, you would be my absolute favorite person in the WORLD, living or dead.

    1. For leftover chili casserole, I would boil elbow macaroni to just shy of al dente, mix the cooked noodles with the chili, and top with shredded pepperjack cheese, or crumbled tortilla chips (hint of lime would be awesome). XOS
