Note: today was the annual running of the Boston marathon.  For those of you who don't live in Boston, here's a breakdown of how things work:

1) people gather around the route and support the runners by drinking, yelling, and throwing up on sidewalks. 

2. Later in the day, they decide to start training for their own marathons, regardless of physical capability 

3) Then, they give up, go home and watch/create hilarious mash-ups of Gadhafi and Charlie Sheen.

In between porn-watching sessions, I'll often browse cnn.com for fodder.  The living section, a favorite of mine, featured an article about murder mystery/cooking novels that were becoming popular (http://www.cnn.com/2011/LIVING/04/13/culinary.mysteries.gain.popularity/index.html).

Apparently, the characters in the books would mull over murder cases while making a delicious ham.  Sounds delightful, but this trend of food mystery novels is not new.  In fact, I traced it back all the way to the pioneers of food/mystery novel. Below are examples from trailblazers of the genre.  Don't read it on an empty stomach -- your mouth will water.
