    What a great find. Thanks to my friend Susan for recommending this to me. I''m not sure if this is always a freebie on Kindle, but for now it's free and it's totally worth the download. This book starts off with a foreword from author Amanda Hocking, and in it she discusses her appreciation for book bloggers and all that they do to help sell her books. I thought that was nice of her. Then it moves on to the book reviews and each one posts a synopsis of a book followed by a short clip of a review. What a great find.

A link is provided to the reviewer's blog for a full detailed review. Next, the recipes come in. Authors of the books provided cute little, simple recipes that tie into their books. Some of them look really yummy! This book was Christy Dorrity's idea to compile a group of reviews and recipes together, and I think it's great that she worked with bloggers and authors to create something truly unique and so fun! I am definitely going to try the "Fairy Touched Calico Brownies", but the best part of this book was that it gave me several books to add to my never ending tbr list.

    Tie a recipe to a book, what a fabulous idea! I'm probably bias because I'm a book blogger but I absolutely love this book! Here certain books are featured. For each featured book, you'll see an image of the book, its blurb, brief reviews from few book bloggers, and a recipe correlating to the particular book. The food featured looks divine and the recipes seem simple and easy to follow. I especially enjoyed the foreword from Amanda Hocking. She gave a wonderful shout out to book bloggers and I Tie a recipe to a book, what a fabulous idea! I'm probably bias because I'm a book blogger but I absolutely love this book!

She gave a wonderful shout out to book bloggers and I felt proud that I could include myself in her praises. She recognized that book blogging is a tough non-paying, juggle with our day jobs ... parent, student, etc. Anyway, I'm looking forward to trying to bake "Raised by Magic Quick Rolls". I love rolls and these look soft and golden. Oh, and the book, Alvor by Laura Bingham, that it was paired with sounds like a magical read. Never heard of it, now I have! So yes, this did have something for moi! Great job Ms Dorrity. Jinky is Reading

    Those who regularly visit my blog know that besides reading and travelling cooking and baking is my other passion. In my Sunday Treats on my blog I combine my love of reading with my love of desserts by sharing with you recipes of some of my favourite treats.

In my Sunday Treats on my blog I combine my love of reading with my love of desserts by sharing with you recipes of some of my favourite treats. So when I heard that someone else did the same and even compiled a blogger's cookbook I was beyond excited and couldn't wait to see Christy Dorrity's selection. And it is wonderful! The recipes are special and one of a kind enough to stand out of the more usual meals, but simple yet in both the ingredients and preparation as to not discourage you from trying them out at home. I love the creativity behind each of the recipes, how with a simple addition of an ingredient Christy Dorrity turns an ordinary recipe into something fancy and special. While browsing through the cookbook I kept stopping and exclaiming "Mmm.. I want to try this one!" and "I want to bake this one!". It is a wonderful selection of a variety of creative and fresh recipes and I loved reading at each one of them the connection to the novel which inspired Christy and her personal retelling of the link between food and book. One of my favourite recipes was the Fear-faire Lavendar Custard which is the treat accompanying Wings by Aprilynne Pike. I love desserts and custard is a favourite of mine. Be it with apple pie or some other cake, I love it. And as we have a lavendar bush in our garden, I knew I had to try out this tasty and unorthodox combination. In my opinion this upgraded custard is wonderful to have with pies and cakes just as you would use a normal one (so no need to freeze it, it is just as wonderful as a sauce). If you want to make the experience even more explosive taste-wise, sprinkle the lavendar custard with grilled walnut/hazelnut pieces on top of the cake. I guarantee it will be unforgettable! Verdict: The 2011 Book Blogger's Cookbook is a wonderful and imaginative compilation of extraordinary yet easy to prepare recipes with an explanation of the link to a specific novel Christy Dorrity has read and reviewed. The 2011 Book Blogger's Cookbook is more than a mere cookbook. It contains review bits of 20 bloggers stating what they loved about the featured books. The blogger testaments make you want to read the novels and the photos make your mouth water. Perfect combination! My only complaint it that the 20 recipes aren't nearly enough, I want more! :-) Content: 9/10 Cover: 10/10 - I am amazed at the professional and top quality look of the cover! It looks both professional and beautiful, and I love how both the reading and the delicious treats are included on it :-)

    Recipes: This is my first review over a cookbook, so I decided to split the review into three sections: recipes, cover, and overall rating. First off, I have to say I was a little curious about this because it put book blogger and cookbook into the same title. I wondered how Dorrity would be able to combine the two. I was happily surprised to see that she took elements of well known books and turned them into recipes. Some of the books included were Wings, Shiver, Mockingjay, Before I Fall, and Recipes: This is my first review over a cookbook, so I decided to split the review into three sections: recipes, cover, and overall rating.

The recipes were simple and looked delicious. I liked these recipes because they are things anyone can make. They're recipes that you can make right before or for dinnner or create for a fun dessert. Below is one picture of a recipe, it is a Fear-Faire Lavender Custard which was inspired by the book, Wings by Aprilynne Pike. Cover: I do and don't like the cover. I like that it shows some pictures of the recipes in the book, but not the girl reading at the top. I wish since it is for book bloggers that it would have a person typing, something along those lines. Overall Rating: I didn't find any real faults to this cookbook. The recipes were very well-thought out and the pictures are great. Plus, you get a synopsis of the book if you have never read it before. My only thing I wish was different was that after the recipe, you get reviews of the featured book. I wish there were reviews of the recipe. Other than that, I loved this cookbook and really want to make some of these recipes. I give this book a three out of four.

    What do books and food and blogging have in common? Well, Tristi, of course! And so what better place to find a review of The 2011 Book Blogger's Cookbook than here? There are other sites reviewing it, and doing a mighty fine job of it, and I think it makes total sense that I should be included on that list. Seriously, my middle name is BooksandBlogsandFood. But it was hard to fit on a birth certificate, so my mom decided to cut her losses and use Paige instead. But I digress. The 2011 Book Blogge What do books and food and blogging have in common?

But it was hard to fit on a birth certificate, so my mom decided to cut her losses and use Paige instead. But I digress. The 2011 Book Blogger's Cookbook is a compilation of recipes of foods mentioned in books that have recently been published by some of the most exciting up-and-coming authors I've seen for a long time. Compiler Christy Dorrity had a unique idea - she found book bloggers who had reviewed those books, asked their permission to quote the review, and then partnered the review with the recipe and a bit about the book. What a great way to join together the things that feed our bodies with the things that feed our minds. You might notice as you flip through the book that two of the quotes are from me. That was a lot of fun. It was also fun to read the other reviews and then to salivate over the recipes. Yes, salivating can be fun. If you like books, if you like to eat, if you like eating while you read, this book is a must-have.

    The Book Blogger's Cookbook has the best combination of two of my favorite things: food and books. I was blown away at how Christy and her team organized a complimentary piece of work that left my mouth watering. For starters, it's a great honor to even be included in this blogger cookbook. For my entry I chose to comment on Lauren's Oliver debut, Before I Fall. I utterly adore everything about this novel, so when the 7-Day Layer Dip was chosen as its recipe, I knew it was the right counterpart.

For my entry I chose to comment on Lauren's Oliver debut, Before I Fall. I utterly adore everything about this novel, so when the 7-Day Layer Dip was chosen as its recipe, I knew it was the right counterpart. Throughout Before I Fall, the main character re-lives her death numerous times, so as Christy expresses in the cookbook, the layers of the recipe grabbed the feel of the story. Moving on, I love cooking, so you know what I am going to do with all these recipes? Try them out of course! So thank you to the lovely ladies who took the time out to make this cookbook happen. Christy's writing is engaging and full of charm, while Amanda and Devon played key parts in the execution. Besides the tasty recipes, I also appreciated the contribution from all the other book bloggers. It gave me the chance to discover new bookworms, while enjoying the quotes from bloggers I am familiar with. It's a positive project that I am proud to be a part of and I hope you all take the time out to support it. Overall, it's sort of a dream book for readers who love cooking.

    This is such a great idea taking books, book bloggers, and mouth watering recipes all in one book. All the recipes went really well with the books. They all had descriptions why that certain food was chosen and it just made sense. "The 7-Day Layer Dip" for Lauren Oliver's Before I Fall went perfectly with the story. With each recipe there was also excerpts of bloggers reviews of that certain novel. It was a nice touch, to an already great book.

I was able to make one of the recipes "Fairy Touched Calico Brownies" based on the book Fablehaven by Brandon Mull. The brownies were topped with a mint icing and a hard chocolate topping. I have yet to read the book but this recipe just looked to good to pass up and I already had most of the ingredients at my house. The instructions were easy to follow and the brownies came out perfectly. Everyone loved them. I can't wait to try out some more recipes from this cookbook. This is a great cookbook for any blogger, author, and reader to have. At only .99 cents on Amazon it's a hard deal to pass. I think everyone should have a copy of The Book Blogger's Cookbook.

    We’ve all done it. Somewhere on your bookshelf—and mine—there is that one book that you devoured in one giant gulp. The book that fulfilled you body and soul. The book you just had to read out loud because the words tasted so good on your tongue. You might not suspect it but The 2011 Book Blogger’s Cookbook is such a book.

It’s worth savoring page by page if only to try all the new, easy-to-make recipes. The lineup is stellar (and I say that not just because I’m included in the list; I'm honored to be in such company) and the recipes are equally stellar. Main dishes, desserts, drinks—there’s a little bit of everything in this cookbook. Each recipe is inspired by a specific book—mostly from the YA field—and the food ties into the story in some fashion. For example, the recipe for The Hourglass Door is “Time-stopping Chocolate Truffles.” (Yum! I can't wait to try it out for myself.)

    I finished The 2011 Book Blogger's Cookbook (The Book Blogger's Cookbook) by Christy Dorrity. This book has the strangest concept I've ever heard of. Each chapter in the book introduces a book with a short snippet of a book's plot, has a recipe developed by the main book's author and then has segments of blogs that yet other people have written about the book (i.e. Mockingjay..see brief plot synopsis, see recipe inspired by Mockinjay developed by Christy Dorrity..see partial reviews/comments fro I finished The 2011 Book Blogger's Cookbook (The Book Blogger's Cookbook) by Christy Dorrity.

Although some of the recipes seemed interesting and possibly delicious, the "inspirations" were often a stretch and the book synopsis were not very good. For instance, I loved Hunger Games and the synopsis for Mockingjay listed here would not have caught my attention enough to even pick it up.

    This cookbook was inspired by several wonderful books and how a handful of book bloggers matched them up with recipes. I had never had an e-cookbook and worried about the format being easy to use on my Kindle--well it's a whole lot easier than a cookbook that keeps flipping closed :-) and though I haven't made all the recipes yet, the ones I've tried are great. I found it easy to navigate and understand and just a really fun book. I was also lucky enough to have my book, Lemon Tart, features as This cookbook was inspired by several wonderful books and how a handful of book bloggers matched them up with recipes.

    I always enjoy running across recipes in novels. I never actually use the recipes, but I like knowing I could if I wanted to. Putting together a book of novel-inspired recipes is a fun idea. I've read several of the books mentioned, and I discovered a few new books to add to my to-read list. And I bookmarked a few recipes that I'd like to try. First on the list: TimeStopping Chocolate Truffles! (Supposed to be simple enough for your children to make.) I always enjoy running across recipes in novels.

    Thoroughly ordinary and uninspired recipes the sorts of things everyone already knows how to cook "inspired" by scenes from various books, along with pitches for the books. A soggy mess.
