Tasty Holiday Recipes for Book Lovers

Thanksgiving is around the corner, and you know what that means: FOOD.

To honor our COMPLETE LOVE of food, we have complied a list of great reads with some tasty recipes to go alongside them. Whether you are hosting your weekly book club, or just enjoying your dinner alone with a book, these are great recipes to help you enjoy the holidays with all of your favorite books.

  1. Gone With the Wind by Margaret Mitchell- Barbadian Plain Cake

This is a classic cake for a classic book. Its great with tea, and spice it up with some chocolate syrup. Tasty and delicious, this cake is a great snack to eat while reading about classic love and as to those calories-frankly, we don’t give a damn!

  1. Ender’s Game by Orson Scott Card- Jolly Rancher Candy Apples

These are great for any time of year, as is this book. This recipe is candy apples with a twist. Take your apples, like you would with a candy apple and cover them with candy sauce. This time, however, use jolly ranchers. As they are melted and baked, they take on a bluish, sparkled galaxy like coating that looks like a galaxy of stars. Great for a space reading-and eating- party.

The title makes us extremely hungry. Given that Thanksgiving is around the corner, here is a Capital style super stuffed stuffing that will really fill you up as you prepare for the 75th annual hunger games.

  1. Bridget Jones Diary by Helen Fielding- Chocolate Covered Peanut Butter Balls

In this book the character has a lot of troubles. What better way to comfort those troubles than chocolate and peanut butter. Grab some peanut butter, roll it in sugar and freeze it. Then melt some chocolate-my preference is dark chocolate- and cover the peanut butter balls. Stick in a toothpick and you have yourself a simple chocolate and peanut butter lollipop.

  1. Casino Royale by Ian Fleming- Garlic Parmesean Cheese Bombs

This book is all spies, and explosions. So why not some chicken bombs? Dazzle them up with garlic and parmesan to give it that great flavor. Maybe even get a martini like 007-shaken, not stirred of course.

  1. Pet Sematary by Stephen King- Lingonberry Jam

What better for a good classic horror than gooey red jam? Liongonberries, with their tart flavor, give it a little bit of a tang to surprise you, like the surprising twists of this books plot line. Spread it on some crackers or bread, even put it in crepes, to give yourself a scary good meal.
