The old monastery where Cathlynn’s forced to stay if she wants to recover a family heirloom is cold and creepy. To make things worse, the only servant left is ancient and doesn’t care much for cooking—until Cathlynn shows him some new recipes and convinces him to try them out. Freshly baked muffins help tame reporters hungry for a story. Homemade pizza helps to thaw out Jonas and get him talking. That simple meal brings warmth to their relationship. Food deepens their intimacy. All in all, this isn’t a low-calorie story. Good thing they’re consumed vicariously.

  • 1/4 cup sherry
  • 1/4 cup raisins
  • 1/4 cup candied pineapple, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup maraschino cherries, chopped
  • 1/4 cup slivered almonds
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 tbsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. allspice
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1/3 cup butter, melted
  • 1 cup milk

Marinate fruit and nuts in the sherry overnight. Be sure to keep them covered.

Preheat the over to 400°F. Sift together the next 6 ingredients. Stir in the egg, butter and milk until blended. Fold in the marinated fruits and nuts. Fill paper-lined muffin tins full and bake approximately 20 minutes.
