Have you made your Thanksgiving menu yet? We’re mostly done, but we’re always open to suggestions. Which is why we turned to some mystery authors to cook up some intrigue for us! Today we’ve got two soup recipes for you, one from Ellen Marie Wiseman, whose Top Pick! rated What She Left Behind hits shelves this January — and the other from Laura Levine, whose latest, "Nightmare on Elf Street" appears in Secret Santa and features elves, cats and murder. We know what we’ll be reading once the holidays are over! In the meantime, we’re heading to the kitchen to start cooking.
Ellen Marie Wiseman’s Butternut Squash Soup
6-8 strips bacon (can you ever have enough bacon?)
1 cup chopped onion
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 cups mashed, cooked butternut squash (I bake mine for the best flavor, frozen squash doesn't do this soup justice!)
2 tablespoons flour
