Book Description

"This genuinely unique and creative cookbook delivers delicious recipe ideas inspired by some of the hottest novels released in recent years to create a mouthwatering feast for the eyes and the mouth"
~BookBub.com

Great books, bloggers, and recipes meet in this fresh and unique cookbook that helps you experience books, not just read them.

Books were selected from the author’s book review blog and paired with delectable recipes like “Fairy Touched Calico Brownies” from the Fablehaven series by Brandon Mull, “7-Day Layer Dip” from Lauren Oliver’s Before I Fall, and “I Hate Chocolate Cake” from Amanda Hocking’s Switched.

Mouthwatering photos complement every recipe.

The 2012 Book Blogger’s Cookbook is now available and includes a foreword by David Farland, award winning, New York Times Bestselling author.

The 2011 Book Blogger’s Cookbook includes a foreword by Amanda Hocking, author of the USA Today Bestselling Trylle Trilogy and showcases over seventy reviews with links to book review blogs and author websites.

"A surprisingly large number of recipes from this collection caught my attention. Even better each one I tried out turned out great. The favorite recipe was the Fablehaven Mint Brownies. The recipe turned out great the very first time and had an appropriate amount of mint flavor. I definitely recommend downloading this unusual collection. You'll get access to recipes worthy of repeat usage and might even find some interesting new reads if you're lucky."
~Heidi Sue Roth, Midwest Book Review

**If you love young adult books, you'll love the cookbook***

Whether you're a food lover, an avid reader or a book blogger, there’s something for you in The 2011 Book Blogger’s Cookbook.

4.0 out of 5 stars Books, Reviews & Recipes, Oh My! July 13, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
When I first heard about Christy Dorrity's idea to compile a cookbook pairing mini-reviews of her favorite books with scrumptious, complementary recipes, I thought it sounded fabulous. When she mentioned using quotes from other book bloggers' reviews of the books as well, I thought it sounded even more fabulous. When she decided to use several snippets from yours truly, well, I could hardly contain myself. I found the concept so fun that I just could not wait to see how the project turned out. And, you know what? It was worth the wait because, really, the cookbook is quite fabulous.

The Book Blogger's Cookbook begins with an intro from Dorrity and a Foreword by self-publishing phenom Amanda Hocking. It goes on to showcase 20 books, most of which are YA paranormals. Several book blogger quotes are given for each novel, as well as a recipe inspired in some way by the story. Although I haven't had a chance to try any of the recipes yet, all look scrumptious and easy enough for even novice cooks. Dorrity offers a nice variety of foods to try, ranging from a refreshing fruit smoothie to a creamy, layered dip to rich, chocolatey brownies. You'll be salivating just looking at the gorgeous photos.

My only real complaint with the cookbook is that it's only available in a digital format. You may have noticed my aversion to e-books - I just don't like them! However, I did read the cookbook on my computer and, while it wasn't that bad, I really would have preferred a hardcover, spiral-bound book. That's not too much to ask for, right?

All in all, I enjoyed The Book Blogger's Cookbook, from its inception to its very sweet author to the beautiful finished product. So. Much. Fun. You should probably just zip on over to Amazon and order yourself a copy - for only $2.99, it's a total steal. It's a great resource for readers, book clubs, reviewers, etc. So, why are you still here? Click over to Amazon already!

5.0 out of 5 stars What a Neat Idea! February 14, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A combination of my favorite things - books and recipes!

This is well-written and the photos are absolutely gorgeous. I am starving now. (Read on Kindle for PC - probably wouldn't look as pretty on the Kindle e-ink.) The books all sounded quite intriguing and I thought the recipe choices for each book were appropriate.

I did notice a couple of little things. One is that on some recipes, the ingredient list starts immediately below the picture on one page and goes to the next one. I missed the starting ingredients a couple of times when reading through. I noticed when reading the bread recipe that it is mixed and put into pans and left to rise; this is a bit unusual in my experience, but I'd give it a shot (especially if there's any chance I could get results like the loaf pictured).

The book is clean, hyperlinked, and very, very attractive. It is a pleasure to read from all aspects.

All in all, I got some ideas for my Wish List and some recipes I'd like to try. Good way to start my morning!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Books and food--what could be better? June 22, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
We've all done it. Somewhere on your bookshelf--and mine--there is that one book that you devoured in one giant gulp. The book that fulfilled you body and soul. The book you just had to read out loud because the words tasted so good on your tongue.

You might not suspect it but The 2011 Book Blogger's Cookbook is such a book. It's a beautiful blend of a cookbook about books. It's worth reading straight through if only to find new books to add to your "to-read" shelf. It's worth savoring page by page if only to try all the new, easy-to-make recipes. The lineup is stellar (and I say that not just because I'm included in the list; I'm honored to be in such company) and the recipes are equally stellar. Main dishes, desserts, drinks--there's a little bit of everything in this cookbook. Each recipe is inspired by a specific book--mostly from the YA field--and the food ties into the story in some fashion. For example, the recipe for The Hourglass Door is "Time-stopping Chocolate Truffles." (Yum! I can't wait to try it out for myself.)

3.0 out of 5 stars Worth the Recipes--even with Platypus Qualities October 25, 2012
By H. Roth
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
One reviewer calls the book neither fish nor fowl. While it's true, consider the world of cookbooks. For an active, connected cook it's normal to find only a couple of recipes jewels in each book. The three test-recipes I made from this book (I always make at least three) turned out great the very first time.

One of the best compliments from the testers that came in reflected balanced flavors. One of the cookie recipes includes dried cherries, chocolate chips and oatmeal. The potential for fighting tastes exists. Following the recipe to the amounts required no adjustments.

The recipe using brownies and mint is also well balanced. We also enjoyed the gingerbread recipe. And those are just the recipes I made for the first round. I have more on my list--after getting caught up on other books.

Yes, the book may not be all of one thing--but lots of people love to order surf and turf! Combinations are often just the thing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good food, good books and good reviews January 30, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This cookbook has a little of every thing, from drinks to main dishes to desserts. The author has let herself base recipes on some of the best reviewed YA books of the last few years. Included are a summary of the book, the recipe and the review blogs for each entry. I'm looking forward to reading the books and trying all of the recipes. I found my 10 yr old looking at the food and my 13yr old reading the book summaries over my shoulder. It was a family favorite.

This was a complete mistake. The recipes are awful and the format leaves a lot to be desired. I should have thought about the fact that when cooking, such devices should be kept... Read more
