Top 10 Tuesday | Book + Recipe Pairings

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature created by The Broke and the Bookish

This week’s topic is a fun one! It’s all about food and books – two of my favorite things. I decided to pick 10 books and pair a recipe that makes me think of the book. Now most of these are desserts, with a few drinks thrown in, but I love baking so I naturally gravitated toward those recipes. Hope you enjoy them!

To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han |  ​Chocolate​ ​Chip​ ​Cookies

To All the Boys I've Loved Before (To All the Boys I've Loved Before, #1)

What could pair more perfectly with this adorably sweet book than a fantastic chocolate chip cookie recipe from The ChocolaTess.

Harry​ ​Potter​ ​series by JK Rowling | ​Butterbeer

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (Harry Potter, #4)

Now this isn’t an incredibly original pairing, but I don’t care. This Bourbon Butterbeer recipe is awesome – though I like it better cold.

Sasquatch, Love, and Other Imaginary Things by Betsy Aldridge & Carrie DuBoius Shaw | ​ ​S’mores​ ​Pie 

Sasquatch, Love, and Other Imaginary Things

Camping and wilderness makes me think of S’mores. And the perfect dessert for hunting down Sasquatch is obviously this S’mores Pie from Tasty Kitchen.

Love​ ​&​ ​Gelato​ by Jenna Evans Welch | ​ ​Matcha Coconut Ice​ ​Cream 

Love & Gelato
I had to include a recipe for my favorite ice cream flavor – green tea ice cream. But this recipe from Laura Kelly Nutrition has a delicious (and vegan) coconut milk twist!

Anna​ ​and​ ​the​ ​French​ ​Kiss​ ​by Stephanie Perkins |  ​Lavender ​Macaroons 

Anna and the French Kiss (Anna and the French Kiss, #1)

Macaroons are the epitome of french desserts (and they’re incredibly delicious). This Lavender Macaroon with a Honey Earl Grey Buttercream recipe from The Cottage Diaries combines some of my favorite flavors.

Georgia​ ​Peaches​ ​and​ ​Other​ ​Forbidden​ ​Fruit​ by Jaye Robin Brown |​ ​Peach​ ​Galette 


Georgia Peaches and Other Forbidden Fruit

Now I’m not the biggest pie person (or cooked fruit really), but I LOVE galettes. And this Peach Galette from Everyday Dishes looks perfect for summer next year.

Throne​ ​of​ ​Glass​ series by Sarah J Maas | Vegan​ ​Chocolate​ ​Cupcakes 

Throne of Glass (Throne of Glass, #1)
This is the best chocolate cake recipe you will ever have in your life. Bold statement, I know but it’s completely accurate. Again, I’m not a huge fave of chocolate cake, but there’s something special about these Vegan Chocolate Cupcakes from Raepublic.

This​ ​Wicked​ ​Game​ by Michelle Zink | ​Beignets  

This Wicked Game

With a New Orleans setting how could I have anything other than a beignets recipe. This Biscuit Beignets recipe is a quick and easy alternative to the classic pastry.

My​ ​New​ ​Crush​ ​Gave​ ​to​ ​Me​ ​by Shani Petroff | ​ ​Hot​ ​Chocolate​


My New Crush Gave to Me

I’m not the biggest fan of straight hot chocolate – it’s always too sweet and rich. But this Hot Chocolate Coffee from Sugar and Soul sounds divine for the winter months! It pairs perfectly with this cozy holiday romance.

Speak​ ​Easy,​ ​Speak​ ​Now​ ​by McKelle George | ​Gin​ ​Ricky 

Speak Easy, Speak Love
How could I not have a 1920s inspired cocktail for this books set in a Speakeasy during prohibition. And this Gin Ricky from Food52 sounds really good because I love all things lime.

This was such a fun and creative topic!
What are some recipes you associate with books? Do any of these sound good to you? Share below.

    I loved/hated reading about all the treats Lara Jean would cook. It sounded good but made me so hungry. I loved the cookie dough in The Upside of Unrequited Molly made, it sounded so delicious!
