The Indiscreet Series and My Foodie Tendencies.

AC Katt

I admit it, I’m a foodie and because I am, in every one of my books food is featured prominently. 
The Indiscreet series starts out in A Matter of Trust with Bear and Reed drinking Kona coffee over blueberry scones.
 In the second book, Jack’s Back, Jim, Reed’s submissive throws a beautifully decorated carrot cake at Reed.

In Cisco’s Boy, the third novel of the Indiscreet Series; Master Cisco d’Loria takes Dr. Greg Harris as his sub; but he doesn’t want love, in fact the contract expressly forbids it. One of the ways Greg seduces Cisco is food. One of the dishes that Greg prepares Cisco is southern fried chicken with cream gravy, mashed potatoes and broccoli with garlic and oil.
The recipe for the chicken and gravy follows:

12 chicken thighs or

1 ½ cups flour

2 tsp garlic powder

1 tsp rubbed sage

1 tsp. thyme

salt to taste

pepper to taste

 8 oz of light cream

Enough peanut oil to put an inch of oil in the bottom of your skillet.


1.   Rinse and thoroughly dry your chicken.

2.   Mix flour, garlic powder, sage, thyme, salt and pepper thoroughly in a bowl.

3.   Fill a second bowl with light cream.

4.   Dip the dried chicken in flour and leave it set for ten minutes.

5.   Dip the chicken in the light cream.

6.   Dredge the chicken through the flour and leave it set for an additional ten minutes.

7.   Heat oil in an electric skillet to about 340 degrees.

8.   Put chicken skin side down and fry for five minutes. Turn the chicken and fry another five minutes.

9.   Take chicken and put it in an oven proof pan and bake at 325 degrees for fifteen minutes.

10.       While chicken is in the oven, drain the oil from your skillet leaving the brown pieces on the bottom of the pan. Whisk your cream mixture into the pan and cook adding salt and pepper to taste. This is your cream gravy.

11.       Serve chicken with gravy on the side.


Greg also cooks Cisco lemon chicken with butter lemon sauce and long grain and wild rice, veal marsala and a hearty beef stew. Does Greg win Cisco over with his charms or his cooking.
 Read the book and you decide.  Cisco’s Boy is available from MLR Books at: http://www.mlrbooks.com/ShowBook.php?book=AK_CISCO and Amazon at http://www.amazon.com/Ciscos-Boy-Indiscreet-C-Katt-ebook/dp/B00GPS1TSI/ref=sr_1_1?s=digital-text&ie=UTF8&qid=1388267249&sr=1-1&keywords=cisco%27s+boy and read the other books in the series for more food ideas including the next book in the Indiscreet Series, Bull’s Whip due out on January 31;  where Jamie make blueberry pecan muffins for his man.
