The first one that comes to mind is Tamar Myers- Pennsylvania Dutch Mystery series. It has this wry humor and funny and fun recipes in it. And gives unique humorous spin to Amish culture.

The Chief Inspector Armand Gamache series by Louise Penny isn't specifically about food, but there is food in every book. And she has the recipes on her website.

Oh my gosh, put mystery and food together and I'm gone...will have to look up some of these.
The only ones I've read are by Enid Blyton and I've completely forgotten all about the food. The Simmering Death title made me laugh. (Now I'm thinking of that French film Delicatessen...)

I agree! I didn't really know there was such a thing out there! I'm going to have to look out for these, although I really enjoy my crockpot. So if there was a crockpot themed mystery novel, I would be all in!
Speaking of Crock Pot mysteries, I found a series by Tim Myers called The Slow Cooker Cozy Mysteries. Currently, it looks as though there are only two books in the series:
Slow Cooked Murder
Simmering Death

I haven't read them yet. I've got too many books in my queue right now. :techie-studyingbrown: I think I've only read a couple of Diane Mott Davidson books. Maybe I'll look for those. However, my first intro into food related cozy mysteries is the Mary Daheim Bed and Breakfast series. I though it was hilarious. :lol2: I'll definitely be looking into those later in the year.

Slow Cooker Cozy Mysteries? Simply because of the titles, I'm going to need to read these! :techie-studyingbrown:

Thanks for the recommendation! I haven't heard of Myers' books and they sound really different compared to many of the ones I have heard of.
