BEFORE YOU ALL RUN AWAY SCREAMING ABOUT HOW THIS IS SUPPOSED TO BE A BOOK BLOG.
Every once and a while, I want to take a moment to highlight a blog that I really enjoy, think is creative and clever, or one that I just feel like sharing with you. I was chatting in the comments of Saturday’s post about food in writing and how it is awesome, and I remembered this blog I started following a few years ago when I mistakenly believed I could food!blog (it was a terrible idea). It was AMAZING because it combined my two favorite things: food, and book.
Alison’s Wonderland Recipes is a blog dedicated to reading books, and inventing recipes to go along with them. At the time I started following her, she was cooking up Tom Sawyer and Star Wars. Every month, she picks a different book and cooks up entrees, sides, desserts – anything that inspires her! Most the time, these are foods mentioned directly in the books themselves.
Here are a few treats to try (pictures link to the recipe):
Uncle Monty’s Coconut Cake from The Reptile Room by Lemony Snickett
Jo’s Christmas Gingerbread from Little Women by Louisa May Alcott
Missouri-Style Cornbread with Bacon from The Adventures of Tom Sawyer by Mark Twain
Note: I’ve actually made this recipe and it is perfectly delicious.
If these pictures aren’t proof enough of how awesome her blog is, head on over to Alison’s Wonderland Recipes and take a peek at the rest of what she has to offer. If you like books and you like food, I don’t think you’ll be disappointed.
And if you really like all this, you’ll be happy to know she’s working on a “literary cookbook” with Skyhorse Publishing. Is that cool or what? It’s specifically intended for teatime, so, um, YES.
Please check out Alison’s blog and give her some love. 🙂 ❤
‘Til tomorrow, my wee dragonmites!
