This Book Is Making Me Hungry — The Top 10 Tuesday Edition!

17 Oct

I’m excited for this Top Ten Tuesday‘s theme. The folks at The Broke And The Bookish are challenging bloggers to post about food! All things yummy are allowed. I occasionally post about books that make me salivate with their references to food. Not as consistently as I would like, I post recipes that I find would be great accompaniments to the offending books. So here in one place, I give you the books (and the recipes) that made me hungry for more than the next chapter. 😉 You’ll find a little bit of everything — perfect for book club potlucks!

Top Books That Made Me Hungry!



Beneath Copper Falls by Colleen Coble (Finnish Pancakes, Finnish Cardamom Rolls, and Squeaky Cheese)

Demise in Denim by Duffey Brown (Sprinkle Donuts and Gourmet Mac and Cheese)

Hope Harbor by Irene Hannon (Cranberry Nut Cake)


Miracle at The Higher Grounds Cafe by Max Lucado (Chocolate-Raspberry Layer Cake)

One More Last Chance by Cathleen Armstrong (Green Chili Stew)

Recipe for Murder by Lisa Harris (Lemon Crumb Cake)


Sea Rose Lane by Irene Hannon (Fudge Cake)

    The Amish-themed books usually contain really yummy recipes!

      I made a blueberry recipe that was included in one of Suzanne Woods Fisher’s books. Yummy!

    Love seeing so many of my books here, Beckie! My husband tells me I include a lot of food references in my books–but hey…sharing meals with good friends and family is one of the joys of life. And a romantic meal is the icing on the cake! (See–another food reference! ) 🙂

      You are so right! Thanks for including the foodie inspiration in your books!

    I haven’t gone back to Cathleen’s series, but do have a vague memory of reading the first book. Fun to see this book on your list – a reminder of MORE books I might want to someday put in the “read” column. 🙂

    Fun list, Beckie – glad to see favorites like Irene Hannon on the list.

      I really liked Armstrong’s books. And the green chili stew was featured in all of them! 🙂
