Meet Cyndy Salzmann

“When life get’s sticky, dip it in chocolate.” This is my personal motto -- as well as that of the Friday Afternoon Club (FAC), the group of women who star in my latest mystery, Crime & Clutter. I love to cook so I couldn’t help but include recipes that go along with the story. After all, the FAC girls have to eat. : )

I thought the readers of Killer Hobbies might enjoy trying one of the simple recipes excerpted from the book…

Triple Chocolate Pecan Brownies
1 package brownie mix
1/2 cup white chocolate chips
1/2 cup semi-sweet or milk chocolate chips
1/2 cup coarsely chopped pecans

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. Prepare brownie mix as directed on package. Add remaining ingredients to batter.
3. Put batter in greased 9 x 9 pan. Bake 40-45 minutes until toothpick inserted near center comes out clean.
4. Enjoy!

Cyndy Salzmann is a wife and mother who does most of her writing on the back of fast food wrappers while waiting to pick up her children from various activities. Crime & Clutter is the second book in the popular Friday Afternoon Club Mystery series (Simon & Schuster 4/07).

Sounds delicious, Cyndy. I can resist anything but chocolate--and a good mystery!
