Beyond Delicious: Ghost Whisperer Cookbook

Have you ever read a cookbook written by ghosts? 'Ghost written' by Mary Ann Winkowski and David Powers, "Beyond Delicious: The Ghost Whisperer's Cook Book" is full of "more than 100 recipes from the Darly Departed". The 2001 Ghost Whisperer cookbook is said to include actual recipes "bequeathed to Mary Ann through spirits of great cooks who have passed on." Along with each ghost recipe is a story of how the cookbook author came to acquire the recipe.

Paranormal investigator Mary Ann Winkowski is a consultant to the CBS series Ghost Whisperer and is often a guest on TV and radio shows. In addition to the Ghost Whisperer Cook Book, Winkowski has authored other books including "When Ghosts Speak" Understanding the World of Earthbound Spirits," "The Book of Illumination" and "The Ice Cradle."

Excerpt from Ghost Whisperer Cookbook

Ghost Whisperer cook book auther with Mr. Food
Ghost Whisperer cook book auther with Mr. Food

"These are recipes for some of the best home-cooked meals you can find, because they actually came from homes: straight from the kitchens of the mothers, grandmothers, uncles, and grandfathers who prepared-and perfected-them over a lifetime. We say it's difficult in our modern society to find the time to make a fresh soup, but we still feel like we should try, and for good reason. Nothing will ever beat a home-cooked meal for nutrition, value, and satisfaction-that's one thing every spirit who has passed on a recipe from beyond agrees on." (Five page sample available on MaryAnn's website.)

The Ghost story: A woman named Leslie inherited a pharmacy from her grandparents. The little pharmacy was quaint, old fashioned and even had an old soda fountain. Leslie tried to sell the shop but was sure there were no buyers because it was haunted. She called on Mary Ann Winkowski. It was then that the real-life ghost whisperer met Queenie, who worked for the woman's grandparents. She cooked, made lunch sandwiches, pies and cakes. Queenie gave Winkoski the recipe for the Malted Butterscotch Bars below.
