Meera Patel is back home with the family after she dropped out of graduate school. Now she shelves books for a living and rustles up fusion recipes at Sylvie’s Cafe & Diner. Everything is fine until her old nemesis Prudence Walker floats up in the local pond. Meera is accused of murder! Well, she did publicly declare Prudence would drop dead.

Meera cries foul and screams police harassment. But she has no defense when she is accused of a second crime. Flanked by pals Tony and Becky, Meera puts in the leg work, trying to solve clues and discard red herrings.

Fall in Oklahoma has never been more exciting.

 ~ A Special Recipe from the Author ~

Pioneer Panini

Meera and her friends love this Panini because it is full of Pioneer Poly spirit. The fresh green cilantro pesto is the heart of this yummy sandwich.


2 cups cilantro tightly packed

½ cup sunflower seeds

4 cloves garlic

1-2 Serrano or jalapeno pepper

1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil

2 Tbsp lemon juice

Salt and pepper

8-10 roasted red peppers

8 slices provolone cheese

8 slices artisan bread



Lightly roast sunflower seeds until they are toasty. Cool completely.

Add sunflower seeds to food processor. Pulse until they are almost powdered.

Add grated or crushed garlic, chopped jalapeno or Serrano pepper, cilantro and lemon juice. Season with salt and pepper.

Pulse until cilantro is minced finely.

Now stream in olive oil and process until a smooth paste is formed.

To assemble the Panini –

Butter bread slices on both sides. Slather the bread with a thick layer of pesto. Place a cheese slice on each bread. Place roasted red peppers on one and cover with the other.

Toast in a Panini press or in a skillet until cooked well on both sides.

Serve hot with chips on the side.

Makes 4 panini sandwiches

Note – Remove seeds of jalapenos to control the heat. Use Swiss, cheddar or mozzarella instead of provolone for a different taste every time. Use the stems of the cilantro – they are packed with flavor.
