Product Description

From Booklist

It is also a mystery whether this should be considered a proper cookbook. Feline Sneaky Pie, owned by human author Rita Mae Brown, narrates the 25 recipes that are divided fairly evenly between menus for humans and those for edibles for four-legged creatures (those animals include rabbits, horses, and dogs, as well as cats). Some dishes are serious and straightforward, such as Mom's fried chicken. Other recipes mirror Sneaky's humor; note the instructions for the dog's dinner: "Take the leftovers from these recipes, toss all of them in a dish, and feed. [Hee hee]." The fun is not so much in the cooking as in the accompanying prose; after all, it's not every day that we learn one of Rita Mae's most cherished beliefs--"cocktail parties are an excellent way to weaken men." For the Sneaky Pies in all of us. Barbara Jacobs

They have collaborated on seven Mrs. Murphy mysteries: Wish You Were Here; Rest in Pieces; Murder at Monticello; Pay Dirt; Murder, She Meowed; Murder on the Prowl; and Cat on the Scent.

I have read this "cookbook" courtesy of the local library. The book is over rate and overly priced. Since Miranda Hogendobler is the resident cook in this series one would think this volume would inundate us with the recipes for all the goodies she provides Harry and the others. But it doesn't. What a rip-off.
Since this "cookbook" claims to follow the 7th volume in the Murphy "lexicon" perhaps it is at best premature. Rita should have waited until after she had 15 or 20 Murphy mysteries under her belt before providing her fans with such nonsense. And exactly who does Rita think she is kidding by having the book printed in hard to read blue ink?

I received this book as an Easter present from my 3 little cherubs, Errol, Lucy and Troi. Errol and Lucy are cats who were rescued from the same animal shelter when they were babies. Troi was a gift from my father. She's a Shetland Sheepdog. They, and I, feel that this is a wonderful cookbook and story. I've tried many of the recipes and have found each one of them to be delicious and easy to prepare. I've prepared some of the recipes and shared them at family functions. My family and friends love the recipes. It's nice to find a cookbook that includes recipes appropriate for my 3 little ones. I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves animals and loves to cook.

I value all opinions of fellow reviewers, but I disagree with the reader from Alaska who previously turned in a review. As a lover of both mysteries and cookbooks, I have enjoyed many of the Mrs. Murphy Mysteries and I have also enjoyed the cookbook. Yes, it does seem geared to attract some of Sneaky Pie and Rita Mae Brown's devout fans, but the recipes seem real and the human ones sound just delicious. I find this an extremely useful cookbook in that some recipes can be made for both humans and animals. All in all, I think Sneaky Pie Brown's venture into the world of cookbooks is a very successful one and her little volume comes recommended.

What a waste of a cookbook. If you want a great cookbook look at Lilian Jackson Braun's coookbook. I got Sneaky Pie's cookbook from the library and I am thankful I didn't waste the money on it. Most of the recipes were for food for pets. I guess Rita Mae Brown was trying to compete with Lilian Jackson Braun. If you are going to buy one cookbook from a mystery write buy Miss Braun's.
Sneaky Pie needs to take this book and bury it in the litterbox
