October 17: Top Ten Yummy Foods Mentioned In Books (Does a character eat something you’d love? Or maybe the book takes place in a bakery/restaurant that makes yummy things? You could also talk about 10 of your favorite cookbooks if you don’t read foody books.)
Prepare to get hungry! I’m not a baker by any means but I do love reading about delicious sounding treats. I’ve not tried these recipes (some inspired by the books, other which just remind me of them) but they all look completely delicious. I’d love to know if you try any of them, and how they turn out.
