To any authors/publishers/ tour companies that are looking for the reviews that I signed up for please know this is very hard to do. I will be stopping reviews temporarily. My husband passed away February 1st and my new normal is a bit scary right now and I am unable to concentrate on a book to do justice to the book and authors. I will still do spotlight posts if you wish it is just the reviews at this time. I apologize for this, but it isn't fair to you if I signed up to do a review and haven't been able to because I can't concentrate on any books. Thank you for your understanding during this difficult time. I appreciate all of you. Kathleen Kelly April 2nd 2024

My Review

I love to cook and I collect cookbooks and recipes. I am always looking for something different and I actually did find a few in the book that I want to try.
A Bad Hair Day Cookbook is unique in the way that it shares not only recipes but excerpts and anecdotes written by hairstylist and savvy sleuth Marla Vail.
Marla Vail is a hairstylist who is known for exposing secrets. Marla lives in Florida with her detective husband along with his two daughters. She uses her abilities to pursue justice. 

In the book, there is an introduction by Marla Vail and she explains a little about who she is and a bit about her recipes. There is also a section on cooking tips like what to do with herbs, and what you can do with bananas, fresh ginger, and using eggplant in a lot of recipes. This section also has how to make gravy by making a roux and do you use flour or cornstarch for the roux. Wonder how to cook corn in the husk? The book has that. 

The recipe section has appetizers, entrees, breads, beverages, sauces, soups, veggies, meats, and desserts. Interspersed in the recipes are excerpts from various books by the author. I liked the section that had Themed Menus, holiday dinners, books with recipes and a Sabbath dinner. Lots of fun information in this book that made it hard to put down. I did bookmark quite a few of the recipes. Easy to follow too!

If you love a cozy mystery book, this is for you and as a  plus, you get lots of recipes!  I highly recommend getting this book and cook something for your family or just you and read a few excerpts also! 

I received a copy of the book for review purposes.
