Weekly Roundup 12: Looking, Not Cooking

One of my favorite things to do is check out cookbooks from the library and look through them without actually preparing any of the recipes. Kind of like an old school version of scrolling through Instagram, I suppose, with the added benefit of no targeted advertising.

I picked up The Feast of Fiction Kitchen; Recipes Inspired by TV, Movies, Games & Books by Jimmy Wong and Ashley Adams on my last library run. Feast of Fiction started as a YouTube channel, which, judging by the recipes in the book, must be very fun. (I'm almost embarrassed to say it has 180 million viewers, but this is the first I've heard of it.)

If you've ever wanted to bake up your own Harry Potter Pumpkin Pasties, Breaking Bad Chicken and Meth Cupcakes (note: not actual meth), or Game of Thrones Direwolf Shortbread, these people have you covered. I wish my culinary skills were up to the task, but I'm definitely "baking fail" material.

Speaking of baking fails, check out this King Arthur Flour April Fool's fail blog post. Yes, even professionals occasionally make a giant mess of things.

And while we're on the topic of April Fool's Day...let it be known that this "holiday" is not my favorite. I think I have a pretty good sense of humor, but pranking people seems more mean than funny to me. But these April Fool's food pranks made me laugh. Old Bay Body Scrub, anyone?

Happy April!
