Easy summer recipes.

 Great Summer Reading!

"Chef Merle Blanc, he has the nose. And when millionaire Bernard Goldberg dies during his wedding luncheon in the chef's restaurant, Chef Blanc's nose, he smells the murder! What greater insult for Chef Blanc than that someone would be so callous as to commit a murder in his restaurant during a wedding reception he has so painstakingly prepared. But the doctors and police believe Goldberg's death was natural. Can Chef Blanc keep some forty guests and employees in his restaurant long enough for him to don his apron and cook a killer's goose before closing time?

"A fun read with lots of red herrings and false trails. I'm pleased to recommend Deadly Reception as a well told tale worth the time. Surprises in store for you. You'll want to read other tales by this very able storyteller. Enjoy. I sure did." — Anne K. Edwards

Butter slow cooker; sprinkle fish fillets with salt and pepper. Place fish in crockpot. Put onion, parsley, grated orange and lemon rind, bay leaf, and oil over fish. Pour the cooking wine down the side of the pot, so it goes to the bottom wihtout removing seasoning.
