Deadline Dishes

Deadline Dishes & Drinks:

~ How your favorite authors feed their families & friends while on a deadline… And a little something to sip while we’re at it. Margaritas anyone?


Sometimes the life of an author might seem glamorous. Images of adoring fans and successful book signings spring to mind. Well, yoga pants and fuzzy slippers aside, it isn’t glamorous. Most of us are just working parents, trying to figure out how to balance it all. And like most people, we need to eat! So here are some of my recipes and also recipes from some of your favorite authors!

**Please Note: these recipes are our own or our adaptations of recipes found in other sources. They are not tested in any kitchens but our own. Results might vary. Remember, we’re writers, not chefs. 🙂
