I first launched this series last month, and I had a lot of fun with it. I hope you like it too! Books and food just go together. None of these recipes are my own, so please follow the links to the recipes. These bloggers know their food!
Onto the yum . . .
Recipe Title: Sausage and Cream Cheese Hashbrown Breakfast Casserole
Created by: Plain Chicken
Recipe Modifications: I usually make this recipe as is. Keep in mind that this is a very rich recipe! I typically pair it with some fruit and lightly buttered toast to help lighten things up.
Pair With: Paper Princess (The Royals, #1) by Erin Watt
Why?: The characters in the Paper Princess are as rich as this casserole!
Recipe Title: Creamy Chicken Noodle Soup
Created by: Cooking Classy
Recipe Modifications: This soup is delicious! Whenever I make it, I increase the veggies (2 cups of both the carrots and celery). I also find that hitting that perfect balance of salt and pepper really brings this recipe home. Don’t go crazy with the salt, but don’t skimp on it either.
Pair With: Two by Two by Nicholas Sparks
Why?: Two by Two has some sad moments, but everything works out in the end. Let the chicken noodle soup comfort you during the sad moments. Once your bowl is finished and the book is done, you’ll be feeling good.
Recipe Title: Spicy Smoked Sausage Alfredo Bake
Created by: Let’s Dish
Recipe Modifications: If you like recipes that are spicy, look no further. This recipe is for you! For the pasta, I tend to use bow-tie pasta (farfalle), and because I like my recipes on the saucy side, I increase all of the sauce ingredients by 50%. So instead of 1 cup of chicken broth, I use 1 1/2 cups, etc. I find that the extra sauce helps the recipe from drying out in the fridge (and the leftovers are amazing!)
Pair With: A Court of Thorns and Roses (A Court of Thorns and Roses, #1) by Sarah J. Maas
Why?: A Court of Thorns and Roses is the riveting first book in a fantastic series. There’s a lot of spice between Feyre and Tamlin (though let’s be honest, it doesn’t compare to Feyre and Rhysand!) A spicy smoked sausage alfredo would pair nicely with this book.
