Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish and is now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together. Each week a new theme is suggested for bloggers to participate in. Create your own Top Ten list that fits that topic – putting your unique spin on it if you want. Everyone is welcome to join but please link back to The Artsy Reader Girl in your own Top Ten Tuesday post.
Today’s Top 10: Books That Gave Me Food Cravings
Today’s Top Ten topic this week is a freebie, so I decided to do Top Ten Books That Gave Me Food Cravings. I can’t wait to see what all the other bloggers come up with for their freebie.
1. Up To No Gouda by Linda Reilly. The main character Carly Hale runs her own grilled cheese eatery. I don’t know how many grilled cheese sandwiches I made while reading and reviewing this book, but it was a lot!
2. The Bluebonnet Battle by Carolyn Brown. The main character, Liddy Latham is known for her Lemon Pies. I made 2 lemon meringue pies while reading and reviewing this book… And they were good!
3. Sweet as Pie by Alice Hunter Pace. Evans Pemberton started her own pie shop and mostly serves chicken pot pie. I didn’t make a chicken pot pie, but I bought a few and enjoyed them very much.
4. The Buy-In by Emma St. Clair. This book takes place in Sheet Cake, Texas. I kept thinking of a big yellow sheet cake with chocolate icing! Yum.
5. The Sweetheart Deal by Miranda Liasson. Tessa Montgomery works in her mother’s bakery making bread, but she dreams of opening her own french patisserie. I love french pastries, and went to a local bakery for some yummy pastries.
6. The Maid by Nita Prose. Molly Gray loves to eat at The Olive Garden, and while I’m not a huge fan of The Olive Garden, I haven’t eaten in one in over 2 years, so now I want to go to The Olive Garden for some salad, breadsticks and pasta!
7. The Lighthouse on Moonlight Bay by Lori Wilde. The premise of this book involved a 100-year-old sourdough starter. Harper and Flannery were left the starter by their recently deceased grandmother. So, yes I had to go out and buy a loaf (or 4) of sourdough bread.
8. The Donut Trap by Julie Tieu. Jasmine works in her parent’s donut shop. YUM!!
9. The Strawberry Hearts Diner by Carolyn Brown. Jancy Wilson starts a job at The Strawberry Hearts Diner which specializes in Strawberry Tarts. I did go to the local bakery to get a strawberry tart with my daughter.
10. Well Met by Jen Deluca. I don’t always think about a fried turkey leg, but it sure sounded good when I was reading Well Met!
