Okay, ya’ll, I absolutely love books. I do. But I also love food. I spend way too much on time on Pinterest looking up new recipes to try, and I also spend a lot of time on the weekends cooking yummy dishes.
Hence my new series: Pinterest Recipes (With Book Pairings!) I plan on making a new post in this series around once per month, so get excited–this isn’t a one-time post! If you like what you see, click on the picture to be taken to the recipe. They’re all delicious–I promise!
Onto the fun . . .
Recipe Title: Mongolian Beef Ramen Noodles
Created by: Jo Cooks
Recipe Modifications: Whenever I make this recipe, I don’t change a thing! I would highly recommend using low sodium soy sauce, as the recipe specifies. The first time I made it, I used what I had on hand (which wasn’t low sodium), so it was a little on the salty side (but still amazing).
Pair With: And I Darken by Kiersten White
Why?: Like the book, this recipe is a little sweet, a little salty, and a whole lot of amazing.
Recipe Title: Jalapeños Popper Mac & Cheese
Created by: Wisconsin Cheese
Recipe Modifications: I usually stick pretty close to the recipe for this one, too! I do adjust the jalapeños based on who I’m cooking for. My kids like the taste of jalapeños, but don’t like the heat, so I usually scale it back to three jalapeños.
Pair With: Dark Fever by Karen Marie Moning
Why?: This recipe should be paired with a spicy book, and Karen Marie Moning’s Fever series delivers.
Recipe Title: No Knead Dutch Oven Crusty Bread
Created by: Jo Cooks
Recipe Modifications: The only thing I do differently with this recipe is that I put my ball of dough on parchment paper before placing it into the dutch oven. This ensures the dough won’t stick to the dutch oven, and it makes cleanup a breeze.
Pair With: The Bear and the Nightingale by Katherine Arden
Why?: The Bear and the Nightingale is such an amazing story, so pairing it with a simple crusty bread (and maybe an olive oil dip) makes a lot of sense.
