I decided to feature some ‘fabulous and healthy’ recipes in this year’s mystery podcast after reading several mystery paperbacks oozing in double fudge by authors such as JoAnne Fluke. She has sold millions of books featuring recipes for cakes, cookies and more. I don’t have anything against these books except that I think it’s high time a mystery paperback featured some delicious, healthy recipes.
This year’s diabetes mystery podcast, “Suspect Boulevard” features recipes by Stacey Harris, The Diabetic Pastry Chef to you show how to entertain like a ‘diva’ without jeapordizing your diabetes health so I contacted Stacey Harris, the Diabetic Chef for some help.
Stacey published “The Diabetic Pastry Chef” (Pelican, $24.95), a collection of more than 200 recipes that fit within the nutritional limits of the diabetic diet. Her mission is to show the more than 20 million people with diabetes in the U.S. that you can have your cake and eat it, too, without sacrificing flavor.
In one scene of ‘Suspect Boulevard’ there’s a glamorous book launch party for Best-Selling Author Marjorie Melbourne Blaze’s newest novel, “Fires of Desire.” Of course, there’s more to Marjorie’s book than meets the eye. Why not sit back and listen to our podcast while you’re enjoying Stacey Harris ‘s delicious “Fires of Desire” Mini Victoria Cakes recipe.
