Hope Lange’s Sardine Strips

Hope Lange’s Sardine Strips

I love it when someone with eagle eyes finds some movie star recipes and sends them to me in case I don’t already have them. My film archivist chum Margie is brilliant at this, and she sent over some Hope Lange recipes she’d found online.  They had been...
Wayne Rogers’ Hunter’s Eggs

Wayne Rogers’ Hunter’s Eggs

This recipe has been hanging around on the Murder, She Cooked test cooking list for a lonnnnnng time. A few people volunteered to have a go at it, and then declined once they realised that liver was involved.  No problem for me though, I love liver! I approached this...
Carroll Baker’s Baked Chicken

Carroll Baker’s Baked Chicken

Easy peasy, lemon squeezy.  This is a simple but very tasty baked chicken recipe.  It doesn’t look much on paper, but often these “ye olden dayes” recipes are like that.  I made a small version of this as dinner-for-deux and we wolfed it down!...
Greg Morris’ Ob’s Chicken

Greg Morris’ Ob’s Chicken

I am very lucky that my other half, Mr Rathbone, is an excellent proofreader.  He’s been kindly reading through all my Murder, She Cooked Substack posts before I send them out into the world and always has brilliant suggestions for tweaks that make my writing...
Murder, She Wrote Hen Night

Murder, She Wrote Hen Night

I spent my hen night in prison. Cabot Cove Prison to be precise. Cast your mind back to a time before Covid-19. When you could invite 15 of your best friends round to ALL BE IN THE SAME ROOM AT THE SAME TIME without the police being called and you getting fined...
William Gallo’s Vodka Pasta

William Gallo’s Vodka Pasta

Pink food is weird. This was tasty (no doubt because essentially, it was mostly cream and vodka) but it was a very odd colour. I made this on a lovely summer’s evening after my daily constitution. It was a typical British summer kind of evening… The first...
Mike Connors’ Lamb Chop Hot Pot

Mike Connors’ Lamb Chop Hot Pot

Oooh, this was GOOD! Proper old fashioned fodder with no fancy herbs and spices. Just a hearty amount of vegetables and super succulent lamb chops after two and a half hours in the oven. Perfect for a Saturday evening in lockdown. In the Cop’s Cookbook the title...
Murder, She Wrote Cookalong Day 6 – Blogger Chums

Murder, She Wrote Cookalong Day 6 – Blogger Chums

One of the best things about having a blog is connecting with folks all around the world who are game for anything! So today’s testers are based in Australia, the USA, Canada, Finland and Greece as well as here in good old Blighty. Thanks so much, you wonderful...
Jessica Walter’s Caesar Salad

Jessica Walter’s Caesar Salad

I have gone on, and on, and on in the past about how much I love Caesar Salad so this post will be short and sweet. This is the third movie star Caesar I have tried. See here for Grace Kelly’s recipe and here for Ruth Roman’s. My beloved Ruth playing...
Michael Learned’s Zucchini

Michael Learned’s Zucchini

When I was young, I absolutely LOVED The Waltons, and I cannot think of Michael Learned without thinking of her as the mother of the clan. But Michael is also in Murder, She Wrote so she’s on my test cooking schedule for the next book… Recently I invited...
Ruth Roman’s Caesar Salad

Ruth Roman’s Caesar Salad

Since making Grace Kelly’s Caesar Salad I’ve been inclined to have a couple of heads of romaine lettuce in the crisper rather than little gems. That is the first time I’ve ever used the word CRISPER, but you know what I mean, that drawer that is at...
Gloria Stuart’s Oatmeal Bread

Gloria Stuart’s Oatmeal Bread

Cakey, cakey, bread, bread! When I first looked at this recipe, I thought it was going to turn out like soda bread. It kind of did, but it was much more like a cake than bread. I liked it, but good toast it did not make. The mixture was very batter-y I’m...
Living My Life Like Angela Lansbury

Living My Life Like Angela Lansbury
