Book Blogger Cookbook!


The first one, The 2011 Book Blogger's Cookbook, came out last year and was such a success, that they decided to continue with another one this year.  I wasn't aware of last year's, but I think it's such a fun idea!


The 2012 Book Blogger's Cookbook is a community project from some of the blogosphere's best book bloggers in a simple, easy to read format.  The cookbook combines a love of reading and dining to help you find books you'll devour and recipes you can't put down.

I was able to look the cookbook over the last few days so I could share my opinion.  The book features some of the hotter Young Adult titles - with a couple middle-grade and adult titles thrown in - with synopses, short reviews, and recipes that coincide with themes from the books.  I especially liked the "Masaak Wild Boar" from David Farland's Nightingale - which can be made with domestic pig ☺ - and I think I'll need to try the Beyonders' Lumba Berry Pie.  I also think it's fun that I have a short quote in the book - snippets of my review for Ally Condie's Matched have been included.  The recipe for Matched is "Trapped in a Bubble Bobo Drink".  you can see it pictured on the cover

All of the recipes look relatively simple to make and the pictures add to their appeal.

The compiler, Christy Dorrity, has arranged a blog tour for the book which began yesterday and would love to have you visit her other stops: http://www.dearestdreams.com/2012/05/2012-book-bloggers-cookbook-launch-tour.html

You can download The Book Blogger's Cookbook on Amazon.com for only 99 cents during this first week of the blog tour!  You'll also be entered in a drawing just for commenting on any of the tour posts.

Thanks, Christy, for the opportunity to participate!  I'm looking forward to trying out the recipes!  :)
