Sarah Skilton is the author of Bruised, a martial arts drama for young adults; and High and Dry, a hardboiled teen mystery. At the B&N Reads blog she tagged five top books about cooking and eating, including:
The Kitchen Daughter, by Jael McHenry

Ginny is 26 and lives at home with her parents, where she can escape the anxiety she feels in crowds. But after her parents die, her Asperger’s syndrome requires comforting rituals, and she finds deep satisfaction in cooking. The recipes she selects call forth the ghosts of their creators, including her beloved Nonna. In this ghost story and cold-case mystery, Ginny’s layered narration will draw you in, while the meals she prepares will inspire you to plunder your relatives’ recipe books for family gems.
