I've been reading Joanne Fluke's cozy mysteries for years, and I've never made a recipe from them. A friend asked me if I had. And now, her newest book, Banana Cream Pie Murder, has a number of interesting recipes in it.

Corn chowder - this was a little heavier than I expected, including whipping cream and creamed corn, as well as regular corn.

Beer muffins - I really don't know if this would work or not, but it sounded interesting. You have to use a pale lager and cheese.

Peach muffins - these would be the most likely candidate, though I've basically cut out sweets in the past year and a half. You put together a regular muffin batter, and add drained sliced peaches from a can. For the streusel topping, you melt some butter in the microwave, and add flour and brown sugar.

I've always wanted to try those beer baked beans you mentioned once...

You should! I totally forgot about them. They're good, though.
