Mystery-themed recipes and other baffling questions about cooking are answered by the Nancy Drew Cookbook for young readers. This series-specific cookbook mixed in a dash of mystery with a pinch of thematic recipes. Nearly 50% of these special recipes incorporate part of the titles from the first 50 volumes of the classic Nancy Drew mystery series. Examples include “Double Jinx Salad,” “Ski Jump Hot Chocolate” and “Haunted Showboat Pralines.” Other recipes involve places or characters from the series including “Togo Dogs,” “Mrs. Fayne’s Famous Rice” and “Hannah’s Cheese Puffs.” Different recipes incorporate various mystery themed words into their titles: “Coded Steak Rolls,” “Mystery Corn Pudding” and “The Case of the Smothered Pork Chops.” Some recipes focus on international fare: “Hong Kong Fortune Cookies,” “Versailles Au Chocolat” and “English Style Chops with Herbs.” Throughout the cookbook, tips from Nancy for a recipe are suggested. The girl sleuth recommends adding a “mysterious taste,” a “taste of intrigue,” a “mysterious crunch” or “a dash of mystery.”
