ARe Recipe Book by Cardeno C.

Happy Monday, y'all. Today I'm going to do a little promo for the All Romance ebooks Passionate Cooks recipe book. It's a free ebook with recipes from a bunch of romance authors. My kale chips recipe is included - whoot! 

Before I give you the blurb ARe has for the book, here's a little bonus tip, if you're in the mood to spice up the kale chips, put a little bit of ceasar dressing (or any other garlicy dressing) on them when they're done cooking. That extra little kick is very nice.

I hope you enjoy it and happy cooking! - Cardeno C. (

Food and love have had a long association, for Passionate Cooks: Free Recipes From Today’s Hottest Romance Authors, over 150 authors of the genre have put their pens and computers aside to don aprons, get down and dirty in the kitchen, and share their love of food.
Much like romance novels themselves, the dishes range from spicy to sweet. There is something for every taste and every level of culinary expertise. The cookbook includes New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Mari Carr’s “Wild Irish” Cream of Crab Soup recipe. Western GBLT author BA Tortuga contributes a dish as spicy and colorful as the straight-shooting author herself with Ranch Hands—a blend of Tabasco, salsa, onions and cumin, added to pinto beans, eggs, Canadian bacon and cheddar cheese and served in a tortilla. And for those of you who are feeling extra creative and sexy, there’s the Avocado Dip that doubles as body paint from mystery writer Marcia James.

Some recipes are simple, such as Down Home Mac & Cheese, while some are more exotic, such as Spicy Shrimp Risotto. There are even some gluten-free selections, like the Sweet and Spicy Gluten-Free Lo Mein-ish Noodles from erotica author Sommer Marsden. And a few are perfectly timed for a Halloween, such as Tracey H. Kitt’s Gamberi del Diavolo or Shrimp of the Devil.

Best of all, they are FREE!


  1. Hi Cardeno, I just finished The One Who Saves Me and I was really hoping for some of the veg recipes from that book (bean casserole with dumplings?). Any of those recipes posted anywhere?
    And I did love the book, have loved all of the Home Series! Thank you.

    1. Hi, Lori. I'm so sorry for not answering this sooner. I don't get notices about replies and I rarely go back after a few days but I was looking for this post and came across your comment. Thank you for the kind words about the One Who Saves Me. I don't have the recipes in that book handy, I'm sorry. :(
