You know how when you're reading a book and someone makes a hot plate of food and suddenly nothing sounds better? Like in the "old" books when they make fresh bread and butter and eat vegetables from the garden, or eat sweet desserts at a party, and suddenly your stomach is ROARING? My friend Melissa has started a blog, Cooking the Books, to combine her two loves of cooking and reading. She picks meals or food items from her favorite books, makes them, and shares the recipes! Above is the Turkish Delight she made, inspired by The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe.
